Growing up, Robert was greatly influenced by his grandparents to be relentless and hard-working, but also compassionate and kind. He attributes his strong work ethic and his genuine concern for others to those early days.
”When I was growing up, I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with my Nanny and Grandpa who owned a cleaners and laundry,” Robert says. “Day after day I witnessed their tremendous work ethic and, more importantly, I saw how much my grandparents cared for others. It really inspired me.”
Robert knew he wanted to work in a field that allowed him to have a real impact on people’s lives. That’s what drew him to law, an avenue that enabled him to help injured victims, the underdogs.
For over two decades, Robert Kisselburgh has helped injury victims fight uncooperative insurance companies and greedy corporations to recover maximum compensation for his client’s medical bills, pain and suffering.
Raised in Southern California, Robert returned to his Texas family roots after serving in the U.S. Air Force. Robert is a seventh-generation Texan and a direct descendant of Robert Potter, a signer of The Republic of Texas Declaration of Independence.
Robert is married to Liz, a lawyer and CPA. Between them, they have five children, one adorable granddaughter and two dogs. When not working, Robert enjoys golf, attending Cowboys and Rangers games, watching college football games, reading, and spending time with his family.
Robert has worked on cases involving car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, medical malpractice, products liability, and pharmaceutical injury cases. He has had the opportunity to help clients with injuries including quadriplegia, paraplegia, brain injuries, serious burn injuries, fractured neck and back, heart problems, and blindness. He has also represented the families of those who have suffered the ultimate loss – the death of a loved one.
Throughout his career, Robert has helped clients fight against insurance companies and large corporations, including car manufacturers, trucking companies and pharmaceutical companies, which have injured his clients. Robert was at the forefront of the Fen-Phen litigation where he was instrumental in developing the case and was co-counsel in the first Fen-Phen trial in the U.S. resulting in a multi-million dollar verdict in favor of their client. He successfully represented hundreds of other Fen-Phen victims in Texas and a number of other states including Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, North Dakota, and the District of Columbia.
