30+ Years of Experience!
Before embarking upon his legal career,
Kyle J. Humphrey graduated from San Diego State University for his undergraduate education
and then went on to Western University School of Law. During his time
at Western State, having received recognition for scholarship and several
awards for high marks in his courses, Mr. Humphrey worked in a number
of fields including construction, landscaping, hospitality, and security
before finally clerking full time for the San Diego District Attorney's
office. Upon his graduation, Mr. Humphrey went to work for Los Angeles
County as a prosecutor. After six months, his career took him to Bakersfield
where he continued as a Kern County prosecutor in 1986.
Mr. Humphrey's illustrious law career includes seven years at the Kern
County District Attorney's office as a prosecutor. He began as a misdemeanor
trial attorney, taking
30 cases to jury verdict while there. He moved on to felony trials where he handled
narcotics cases, theft and fraud cases, burglaries and robberies, embezzlement
cases, among others. After mastering this area, he moved on to the major
crimes unit to handle the most serious of offenses for a number of years.
These cases included
sexual assault, child molestation, kidnapping, and all forms of criminal homicides from
execution style killings to drunk driving related deaths. It was at this
point in his career he had taken
over 100 cases to jury verdict and stopped counting.
Starting His Private Practice

private practice to continue furthering his career. He opened an office
where he practiced exclusively
criminal law as a defender for the following 16 years. In this time, Mr. Humphrey has
taken well over an
additional 100 cases to jury verdict, and assisted numerous other clients in other manners
of disposition. His cases have included everything from an overloaded
