A native of the Macon, Georgia area, Kyle is a graduate of Mercer University, where he received an undergraduate degree in business administration. Following his undergraduate education, Kyle attended Georgia State University’s College of Law, earning his law degree in 2013.
After earning his law degree, Kyle went into private practice, where he focused on business litigation, catastrophic personal injury cases, and civil rights cases involving police misconduct by officers from metro-Atlanta police agencies. In addition to other police misconduct cases, Kyle contributed, both during and after law school, to the successful litigation of many cases against the City of Atlanta and officers from the City of Atlanta’s notorious and now-defunct REDDOG unit. Kyle’s business litigation involved claims asserted under the Fair Business Practices Act, the Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act, ERISA, breach of contract, and fraud, among others.
Prior to joining Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP, Kyle was most recently employed by the Georgia Department of Law, where he practiced for several years and specialized in civil rights and constitutional law. The cases he handled involved First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendment issues, as well as issues pertaining to sovereign and qualified immunity.
