Biography

Kyle understands the problems that face management. Whether it’s a problematic employee, a problematic union, a problematic government agency or a problematic lawsuit, Kyle stands ready to provide timely and efficient solutions to these types of labor and employment issues.

Employers turn to Kyle when they are confronted with these types of problems because he gives prompt attention to all of his clients regardless of how simple or complex the legal issue. Kyle strives to understand his clients’ business needs so that he can provide workable solutions for any employment situation.

Kyle achieves these goals in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible. For example:

  • Preventative solutions. Kyle has a deep understanding of all aspects of labor and employment law. His intricate knowledge of these laws allows him to provide timely and straightforward solutions to problems that may confront employers. The solutions Kyle provides help keep employers out of court, and avoid the costly expense of litigation.
  • Zealous advocacy. Litigation cannot always be avoided, and when it can’t, Kyle provides zealous representation for all his clients. Whether it’s a lawsuit, an arbitration, a charge, a government investigation, or an OSHA or MSHA citation, Kyle uses his extensive knowledge of the court system, arbitrators, and government agencies to provide zealous advocacy on behalf of his clients.
  • Thorough research. Not all labor and employment problems are created equally. Sometimes the answers are easy to come by. But sometimes, legal research is needed to formulate a solution. Kyle’s research skills allow him to efficiently find solutions to almost any legal issue and do so in a cost-effective manner.
  • Straightforward, compelling legal arguments. Boring and mundane legal arguments generally do not win cases. But Kyle is known for his straightforward, compelling legal analysis designed to catch a judge’s attention and convince the judge that the employer is in the right. Kyle has used this technique to secure dismissals of many cases pending before courts and government agencies alike.
  • Ability to understand and provide assistance on novel and complex legal issues. Employers are facing complex regulations and litigation today, more than ever. Whether it’s complex litigation (such as class actions or collective actions), or complex and hard-to-understand government regulations, Kyle can help employers through this ever-changing legal climate. Kyle has extensive experience litigating complex matters and stays on top of the new laws and regulations ready to assist employers whenever the need may arise.

Kyle appears regularly before state and federal courts and administrative agencies, including the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, the Mine Safety and Health Review Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Kentucky Labor Cabinet, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.

When Kyle is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and five children, enjoys running, and is an avid racquetball player.
