As a third career attorney and father of three who has been married for 24 years, I bring an unusually wide ranging background to the practice of law. In 1989, I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelors Degree in Finance and became a financial analyst and bank examiner with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. I spent five years during the height of the previous banking crisis conducting audits and analyzing the financial condition and investment and loan portfolios of banks and the companies that owned them. The unique perspective I gained from this experience has been invaluable in helping me resolve a variety of legal challenges for clients.
Motivated by an entrepreneurial spirit, I embarked on a second career in the construction industry in 1994. I became a construction manager for a volume homebuilder, moved quickly into project management, and by 1999 opened my own custom homebuilding company. I managed all aspects of the company and grew it from annual revenues of $1.3 million to over $4.0 million. With familiar signs of a housing market bust appearing, I decided to move out of home construction and into the development and construction of light commercial real estate projects.
However, the depth of the economic decline and my wife’s encouragement eventually led me to pursue my long held dream of becoming a attorney. I entered Texas Wesleyan School of Law in 2008 and graduated in May of 2011. As a law student, I was a member of the Texas Wesleyan Law Review and Moot Court Honor Society. I also had the privilege of serving as an intern for both a Federal District Judge and a Federal Bankruptcy Judge. In addition, I worked for a year as a law clerk for a solo-attorney handling estate, probate, and family law matters, general civil litigation cases, and business transactional matters. After graduating and taking the bar exam, I worked for a solo-attorney working on bankruptcy, debt collection, and civil litigation matters.
In 2011, I received my license to practice law in the State of Texas and formed K.C. Maxwell, PLLC with the primary objective of helping individuals and entrepreneurs prevent, navigate and resolve the unique legal challenges they face. I am an active member of the Tarrant and Dallas County Bar Associations, attend Mansfield Bible Church, and volunteer my time to serve veterans in need of legal assistance through Texas Lawyers for Texas Vets.
