    KYLE BACHUS

    ABOUT ME

    Kyle Bachus won his first argument in front of the state supreme court when he was seventeen years old. As a junior in high school, Kyle attended a Florida state legislation day for high school students. There, he was selected to argue a predetermined topic in front of a panel of licensed lawyers sitting on a mock supreme court. He was provided with appropriate documentation and tasked with researching and preparing his argument. Selected as one of the best presenters of the day statewide, he was both surprised and inspired to pursue a career in law.

    He graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1989 and from the University of Florida College of Law three years later. He began work the Monday after graduation in a plaintiff ’s personal injury law firm.

    Kyle moved to Colorado in 1994 and joined a Denver personal injury law firm. Two years later, Kyle and fellow lawyer Darin Schanker opened Bachus & Schanker, LLC in a tiny, rented office with less than $15,000. In the years since, Bachus & Schanker has grown into one of the largest personal injury firms in the region. Today, Kyle oversees the firm’s Elite Litigation Group, where he limits his personal practice to representing families throughout the United States in wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases.

    Kyle is a member of the Colorado and Florida Bar associations and has served on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association for more than twenty years in total. He has served on numerous committees and repeatedly won recognition from his peers at both the state and national level. He is proud of the role he has played in the passage of state and national legislation to protect consumers and is a frequent speaker and guest lecturer.

    Kyle lives in Denver with his wife and their three children.

    Kyle’s mission is to help families by providing real answers to all of the difficult questions that arise after a traumatic loss. How can he help you?

    With the launch of Unthinkable, Kyle immediately became a Best Selling Author as many others found the tools provided within a much needed resource.
