LITTLE ROCK, ARK. – The Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association recently named Tre Kitchens of the Brad Hendricks Law Firm in Little Rock the 2017 Outstanding Trial Lawyer of the Year. Kitchens received the award at the association’s 54th Annual Convention in Eureka Springs on April 28, 2017. The Outstanding Trial Lawyer of the Year award is highly esteemed and is presented to an attorney dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals and the civil justice system.
Kitchens attended Little Rock Central High School and graduated from Texas Christian University, and then UALR Bowen School of Law. His trial practice emphasizes commercial litigation, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and personal injury.
Kitchens exhibited exceptional trial work over the past year, and his trial strategies and instincts have delivered justice for his clients time and time again. Kitchens’ caseload encompasses an impressively broad scope of trial work, and he is highly regarded among his peers for the intensive care he takes with his clients.
“Tre Kitchens possesses enviable skill, stamina, and instinct – and that makes him a truly outstanding trial attorney,” said outgoing President Robin Smith. “The breadth of the types of cases he takes and his unyielding drive to exhaust every avenue to justice for his clients reveals his dedication to people who are injured and voiceless. He inspires the trust of people who are at their absolute lowest, and he is very deserving of the Outstanding Trial Lawyer of the Year award. ”
At the awards ceremony, Kitchens expressed his gratitude to the other trial lawyers in attendance and to his mentors, Brad Hendricks and Judge Chip Welch. Tre and his wife Alicia live in Little Rock and have three beautiful daughters. When he is not in trial, Tre enjoys spending time with his kids and going to the lake.
