Attorney Kevin J. Connolly is an experienced trial lawyer who spent many years representing large companies in complex litigation arising out of multi-million dollar business transactions and the defense of personal injury lawsuits, including cases involving premises and products liability, the Jones Act, and the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. He has also handled numerous construction defect cases, chemical exposure cases, class action litigation, and mass casualty lawsuits, in addition to conducting numerous accident investigations, both onshore and offshore. Additionally, he has tried cases ranging from breach of contract cases to personal injury lawsuits. He is experienced in all aspects of litigation, using the discovery process to learn important details that lead to successful results for his clients while perfecting the skills necessary to excel in a court-of-law.
Recently, however, Kevin sought a way to change the focus of his practice in order to be more client-focused, dedicated to getting optimal results for individuals rather than large companies. Kevin joined DeHoyos & Connolly, PLLC as an equity partner because he recognized the unique philosophy of the firm - working hard to achieve the best results possible for each client. Kevin has made the transition from representing large corporations, typically in a defense capacity, to working to achieve justice for individuals and small companies. His background working for a large law firm has given Kevin the skills to cut through the delays and other obstructionist tactics that large corporations and insurance companies use to delay paying settlements. Kevin is able to get his clients the best possible award by understanding how to craft an effective case and advocate zealously on behalf of his clients.
Kevin graduated cum laude from Texas Tech University in 1997, going to work as a software and business consultant for Fortune 100 and FORTUNE 500 companies for many years. Through this business experience, Kevin developed an expertise for using technology to discover information that is beneficial to each client's case. After graduating magna cum laude from South Texas College of Law in 2007, Kevin worked with several large Houston-based law firms as a commercial litigation and personal injury defense attorney, gaining extensive experience in both state and federal courts throughout Texas. Additionally, Kevin has been admitted to appear in all federal courts in the State of Texas.
