About Keesal, Young & Logan

Personal relationships. Shared achievement. When we say these are our values, that's not lawyer-speak.

What sets KYL apart in the practice of law is the value we place on personal relationships and shared achievement.

As it turns out, this attitude affects everything we do. The power of simple human courtesy is astounding. It opens minds, establishes bridges, creates opportunities for agreement, and promotes understanding. Clients love it. Judges and juries respond to it. Legal colleagues respect it. Talented young lawyers seek it out. Indeed, the professional comity and collaborative spirit that have shaped the practice of law at KYL and helped build our firm over the past four decades consistently attracts and retains the finest legal practitioners.

We don't mean to brag. But we could if we wanted to.

The results are striking. During the 48 years in which we've built our practice, KYL has produced consistently high quality legal work, strong, lasting relationships with our clients, a respected position in the legal communities in which we practice, and one of the best litigation track records in the country.

Our firm's reputation as formidable litigators and effective corporate legal practitioners is built on thorough preparation, creative strategic thinking, and strong courtroom advocacy.

The pillars of our success are built upon strikingly human principles.

Integrity, honesty, fairness in our dealings with our colleagues, our clients and our legal adversaries; an expectation of excellence in our work, through both mastery of the law and careful preparation; a common-sense approach to problem solving that respects and conserves our clients' resources; a responsive, service-oriented attitude in our working relationships; and a willingness to engage issues and opponents head-on when necessary, and win.
