Kyle Wilhelm is a Florida native, born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He is the first attorney in his family, and, as such, growing up, he never considered being an attorney. However, after enrolling at the University of Central Florida and taking a few electives in social work, archeology, and psychology, he found a home in UCF’s legal studies program. From then on, he immersed himself in the legal field and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies from UCF. During his tenure as a full-time student, he also worked full-time as a paralegal at a law firm in downtown Orlando which specialized in real property disputes, third-party insurance defense, first-party property insurance defense, and personal injury protection.
After three years of insight from experienced civil litigation attorneys, he decided that law school was a natural next step in his career. He attended Barry University’s Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law where he was consistently in the top 10% of his class. During his tenure at law school, he was a senior editor on the Barry’s law review journal, a teaching assistant for first year legal research and writing, a dean’s writing fellow, and he also received numerous book awards, namely in Florida Constitutional Law, Real Property, and Legal Research and Writing. He graduated with honors in December 2019 and was #2 in his class.
While attending Barry University in his last year, he was hired as a law clerk by the Kendrick Law Group. For the next year, he developed his skills in business organizations, probate, real property, and contracts under the tutelage of Jessica Kendrick and Sarah Geltz. After graduating and passing the bar exam, he began working at the Kendrick Law Group as an associate attorney and is looking forward to his continued growth and success with the firm.
Outside of his professional life, Kyle enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and two cats and is usually found either playing video games or hiking.
