Leonid “Leo” Kishinevsky was born in Russia and immigrated to Houston, Texas with his family as a young boy shortly before the fall of the Soviet Union. The experience of starting a new life in America taught Mr. Kishinevsky many important life lessons about hard work, determination, and the fundamental notions of fairness and equality that are essential to the American way of life.

After completing high school in Houston, Mr. Kishinevsky attended college at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend Indiana, graduating with a BBA in Marketing and a BA in Political Science. He then attended law school at the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center, where he received his JD in 2009.

After becoming licensed to practice law in Texas in 2009, Mr. Kishinevsky began his legal career in criminal defense, where he gained valuable trial experience. Mr. Kishinevsky then transitioned into civil litigation, working for several established Houston firms representing clients in a variety of contexts including personal injury lawsuits, first-party insurance lawsuits, and business litigation matters.

In April 2015, Mr. Kishinevsky started the Kishinevsky Law Firm, focusing his practice primarily on personal injury litigation. Providing representation to clients throughout the greater Houston area, he assists people who have suffered economic and noneconomic losses and harms due to the fault of other people or companies. His cases have included motor vehicle collisions, truck and tractor-trailer accidents, pedestrian accidents, workplace injuries not covered by workers' compensation insurance, premises liability, defective products, and injury claims against governmental entities. Mr. Kishinevsky also represents policyholders whose claims have been denied in bad faith by their insurance companies in first-party insurance litigation and in his business law practice, Mr. Kishinevsky represents individuals and companies in business-related civil litigation.

Client Reviews

Great lawyer! After I was injured in a car accident I didn't know what to do. Luckily a friend recommended that I give Leo a call. He helped me through the entire process, got my medical bills paid and got a settlement I am happy with. If you need an injury lawyer I highly recommend you give him a call. L.W.
