Dr. Kelly Rinehart is an associate attorney in the Dallas, Texas office. Her practice focuses on complex litigation involving antitrust, multi-district litigation, class actions, and oil and gas litigation. Dr. Rinehart also has experience in estate management in Tarrant County, Texas.

Prior to joining Roberts Law Firm, Dr. Rinehart provided legal work for a firm in Fort Worth, Texas where she primarily assisted in multi-district oil and gas litigation and concussion litigation. She also provided critical research on a broad range of topics from terroristic speech and constitutional protection, ERISA preemption and exceptions, to constitutionality of attorney’s fees relief in Texas LLC litigation. Dr. Rinehart also gained critical litigation skills at a second firm. Benefitting from her previous career as a professional licensed counselor, Dr. Rinehart used her communication and mediation skills litigating family law issues in courts throughout Tarrant, Dallas, Collin, and Johnson Counties, Texas.

While attending law school, Dr. Rinehart continued to teach graduate level counseling and spirituality courses as an adjunct teacher with Liberty University and Tennessee Temple University. During that time, Dr. Rinehart was hand-selected to be the first army personnel to serve as a special staff officer providing resiliency support services to U.S. military organizations operating with and throughout Saudi Arabia, ultimately negotiating with select diplomatic representatives, international state servants, and coalition military leadership in order to perform sensitive operations with integrity and necessary discreetness in cooperation with restrictive partner nations. Despite these obligations, Dr. Rinehart still served a term in a leadership role with the Texas A&M International Law Society, placed second in the Texas A&M School of Law 1L Intramural Mock Trial competition, competed on the Law School Mediation Team, performed as an edits leader on the Property Law Journal, and still graduated within three years in the top 14% of her class.

Dr. Rinehart’s current legal professional experience is supplemented by her military experience. During multiple active duty tours throughout four separate campaigns during her 20-year military career as an Army Reservist, Dr. Rinehart gained invaluable experience as a special staff officer to include overseeing special staff directorate security cooperation operations across 20 nations, researching and arranging key leader engagements with US military and foreign military and civilian leaders to promote interoperability and overall theater stability throughout Central Asia. She was also the first military special staff officer to develop standards of performance and execution of religious area assessment and religious area impact analysis for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Operations across a combined, joint, interagency, multinational operational environment.
