Kyle is a Chicagoland native (Sox not Cubs). After graduating from the Loyola Chicago School of Law, magna cum laude, Kyle moved to New York where he worked first as a Staff Attorney at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and then at New York’s largest asbestos litigation firm, handling complex motion practice and appeals on behalf of clients, largely former union tradesmen and military servicemen, who had developed terminal diseases from their asbestos exposures.
Since coming home to Chicago in 2014, Kyle has focused exclusively on litigating consumer class actions, representing clients for injuries ranging from identity theft and financial fraud as a result of a data breach to massive property damage caused by failing plastic plumbing systems. He joined Carlson Lynch in 2019, where he continues to advocate for consumer and privacy rights.
As Kyle puts it:
“Most of my clients are not rich and don’t know a lot about the law. The defendants, on the other hand, are often multinational corporations with essentially unlimited resources. Consumers are definitely at a disadvantage, and I feel like it’s my job to navigate them through those waters the best I can to make sure we get a good result for the entire class.”
Kyle has argued appeals in front of the Seventh and Second Circuits and the New York Appellate Division, and is the former Chair of the Chicago Bar Association’s Class Action Committee. He lives in Evanston, IL with his wife and two children, where he enjoys playing the guitar, cooking, and craft beer. He remains, for now, a lowly white belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
