Attorney Spotlight: Kyle Carney

Kyle Carney

This article is part of a series.

When did you join the firm?

Where is your office located?
Fort Worth

Tell us about your practice. 
I helped open the firm’s Fort Worth office in June of this year. As a member of West Webb’s litigation and appellate team, I have experience representing businesses and individuals in complex commercial disputes and unfair competition matters. My practice also includes higher education, employment, healthcare, construction, and trademark matters.

Why did you want to become an attorney?
I asked myself how I could best use what God has given me to love my neighbor, and serving people through the practice of law rose to the top of my list of answers.

What is the best thing about practicing law at West Webb?
I get to practice law with some really smart, talented people.

What do you do for fun?
I love to play tennis, hang out with my family, and whenever those things happen at the same time, it’s even better.

What is your favorite quotation?
Mike Tyson’s: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” I like this quote because competition has a lot of applications for life and law. You have to plan but your practice has to prepare you so that you are ready to roll with the punches. Eventually, in life and in law practice, you meet the unexpected, and it’s the “competition,” or your reaction and the process, that is exciting and a lot of what counts.

What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?
Once I had the privilege and audacity to move to China for a couple of years without taking even a crash course in Mandarin. I learned how to speak to eat, and now I can still help you order off the Chinese menu at your favorite restaurant.
