Biography

Kyle is one of two attorneys to receive Chambers USA’s highest ranking in Nevada for immigration law. He also received top honors from Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, Avvo, and Nevada Business Magazine.

During World War II, the U.S. government detained Kyle's U.S. citizen grandparents because of their Japanese ancestry. Learning about this history inspired Kyle to protect immigrants’ rights.

Kyle was born in Boston and raised in Oakland. He interned for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer and the U.S. Air Force. Kyle also clerked for Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and the Honorable Kristin L. Mix of the U.S. District Court.

In his legal practice, Kyle applies principles he learned from a ten-day silent meditation course, yoga, and coaching basketball. Outside of work, he serves on the Board of Trustees for the Nevada Bar Foundation and Board of Directors for the Immigration Law Clinic Alumni Council.
