About Krisi Kastl
Krisi Kastl is the founder and managing partner of Kastl Law, a Kaufman County personal injury law firm. For more than 15 years she has dedicated her practice to recovering maximum compensation for the injuries of her clients.
Why Krisi became an attorney. “The adage is true. Everything I ever needed to know, I learned in kindergarten.” Even at the age of 5, Kristi found herself drawn to books and compelled to advocate for her classmates. She found her calling in the practice of personal injury law.
What drew Krisi to the practice of personal injury law. When clients come to Krisi's law firm, they are typically in one of their most vulnerable moments. They feel unheard and overlooked. Kristi takes pride in being able to passionately advocate for her clients.
“I center my practice on empowering the individual through their crisis, so they may live life to their fullest potential.”
Krisi's personal injury philosophy. “I have a client-centered philosophy.” When a new case comes in the door, Krisi and her team bring the complete and dedicated knowledge of the law to the table and then build the case – fact-by-fact – as it applies to the client’s situation.
The highlight of Krisi’s day. For Krisi, she is most passionate about leading people to justice. She believes that the work she does helps to forge a stronger community. “It is my honor to help people from all walks of life. I truly cherish the strong relationships I’m able to build with my clients as we work together on their case and beyond.”
The origins of Kastl Law. Coming up in the legal profession in the late 90s and early 2000s, Krisi faced challenges as a woman in a largely male-dominated plaintiffs' personal injury profession. “I worked twice as hard for half as much as my male counterparts. With the new century, came new opportunities. I challenged myself daily to build a practice that honors the contributions of women.”
Krisi launched Kastl Law 15 years ago.
Krisi in the community. Krisi is an active member of the legal community. Today, she serves as the president of the Dallas Bar Association and serves on the boards of the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, the Dallas Women Lawyers Association, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the Association of Young Lawyers.
She also chaired the American Association for Justice Women Trial Lawyers Caucus and served as the president of the Texas Women’s Lawyers Association from 2018-2019.
Krisi outside the office. Krisi loves the theater, good art, dancing, and working out. She expands her horizons through travel. She enjoys spending time with friends, particularly her best friend and husband, Sean. “I deeply value our time together.”
The two of them visit family in Ohio, Arizona, West Texas, and New Mexico and love spending time with their 12 nieces and nephews and seven godchildren.
