Jonathan C. Kieschnick, Trial Lawyer

After obtaining an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin, Jonathan C. Kieschnick graduated from South Texas College of Law in Houston and was licensed as an attorney by the Supreme Court of Texas in 1996. From the outset of Mr. Kieschnick’s legal career, personal injury litigation has been his primary focus. For the first seven years of his practice, he plied his trade at formidable defense firms as an attorney who represented large corporations and insurance companies in personal injury cases involving wrongful death, industrial disasters, construction accidents, premises defects, medical negligence, and motor vehicle collisions. Those years as a defense lawyer enabled Mr. Kieschnick to learn valuable inside information as to how cases are defended, evaluated, and tried by juries.

Armed with insight that only an experienced personal injury defense lawyer can possess, Mr. Kieschnick left the defense practice in order to devote his time, resources, expertise, and passion to the representation of people injured as a result of the negligence and carelessness of companies and/or individuals. Mr. Kieschnick is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is firmly committed to professionally and aggressively pursuing the interests of his clients all the way through the litigation and trial process in order to maximize the value of his client’s claims.

Personal Injury refers to the area of law that seeks to protect victims who are harmed by the negligence of another person or entity. Negligence, in turn, is defined as the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person, under the same circumstances, would have exercised. Negligence occurs when a defendant’s conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in injury to that person. Every person has a legal duty that requires that he or she conduct himself according to a certain standard, so as to avoid unreasonable risk to others. If someone fails to conform to that duty and causes injury to another person, he or she may be liable for the damages caused.
