`` Kyle R. Jackson, Sr. - Shiver Hamilton

About Kyle

In early 2020 Kyle re-committed his career to serving individuals and families who have fallen victim to significant personal injury or wrongful death.  After spending nearly five years of his career at a national trial defense firm representing apartment complexes, housing associations, property owners, property management companies, major corporations, and international insurance companies; Kyle joined the elite attorneys at Shiver Hamilton to pursue his highest value – putting people first.

Kyle’s law practice focuses on cases involving negligent security, unsafe premises, catastrophic personal injury, and wrongful death.  He also has extensive experience handling appeals which affords his clients the comfort of knowing their case will be in good hands from start to finish.  Kyle is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia, Florida, and Georgia; but, has handled, and can handle, cases nationwide. Kyle spent the first nearly five years of his career working out of his previous firm’s Miami, Florida office.  South Florida is universally known as one of the toughest and most difficult locations to practice law in the country. This tough “upbringing” has fostered in Kyle a unique grit that benefits his clients.

Prior to law school, Kyle attended, and played football for, the Georgia Institute of Technology where he was a member of the 2009 ACC Championship team, served as a varsity starter and letterwinner at both Inside and Outside Linebacker, and earned the accolades of ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year (2008) and Honorable Mention Freshman All-American (2008) before having his career cut short by injury.  Kyle then attended Georgia State University, College of Law, where he won multiple mock trial championships including one national championship.  Kyle will soon become active with the law school’s Student Trial Lawyers Association (mock trial team), serving as a team coach, guest judge, and “scrimmage attorney”.

Kyle is originally from Houston, Texas; but was raised primarily in McDonough, Georgia.  Despite living in Florida for the past five years, Kyle and his family have remained active members of New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Georgia where his father-in-law, Al Mead, III, is the North Campus Pastor.

Kyle and his wife, Dr. K. Ashley Jackson, M.D. – a pediatric anesthesiologist — have two young children.
