Kaitlin H. Kerr



Working with clients is one of my favorite parts of practicing law, whether it be guiding them through their specific legal needs or easing any discomfort they may have about the litigation process.  I strive to leave each of my clients in a better position than when we were retained, and I firmly believe the work we do together furthers that goal.

Kaitlin Kerr is an attorney who advises and represents clients in a variety of matters including transportation, personal injury and wrongful death, insurance coverage disputes, construction, appellate law, products liability, premises liability, contract and business disputes, estate planning, and commercial litigation, among others.

Kaitlin’s experience involves all aspects of the litigation process from pre-suit through trial and appeal. She represents clients in state courts, federal courts, and in arbitration proceedings throughout the State of Texas. She routinely works with clients pre-suit with the ultimate goal of reaching an amicable resolution without the need for litigation. In each case, Kaitlin’s focus is learning the specific needs of the client, assessing options that meet those needs, and advising her clients on the best course of action to obtain the most optimal result. 

Prior to joining Naman Howell, Kaitlin served as a Judicial Clerk to Senior U.S. District Judge Robert Junell in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.
