Kelsey Stallings's Headshot

Attorney Kelsey Stallings is a determined, successful litigator. She takes pride in getting the best results for her clients—even under the most challenging circumstances. Her practice focuses on catastrophic personal injury, trucking collisions, commercial matters, and wrongful death.

“Arnold & Itkin feels as much a home to me as it does to our clients. As a team, we believe people deserve to feel like they can trust their attorneys while feeling respected and truly seen. People who work with us can trust that they will always be heard, valued, and well represented.”



Kelsey was born and raised in Clear Lake, Texas. Her parents often traveled the world on service trips, exposing Kelsey to various cultures and traditions. During this time, she developed a keen sense of empathy and sensitivity.

Following these years of travel, Kelsey attended Chapman University in Orange, California, obtaining degrees in political science and history. After graduation, she followed in her parents’ footsteps and volunteered for a multi-year service program, where she took a position at a human rights legal nonprofit in Manila, Philippines. Her work allowed her to right wrongs inflicted on civilians—a preview of where her life would take her.

After the program, she came back to the U.S. and enrolled at the University of Houston Law Center. Here, Kelsey was introduced to the team at Arnold & Itkin. She worked as a law clerk for the firm through two years of law school, gaining an enormous amount of practical knowledge. During the same period, she also clerked for the Honorable Nancy Johnson in the Southern District of Texas.

With her law degree in hand, Kelsey took a job as a defense attorney at a private firm, where she gained invaluable experience. She represented clients in matters involving wrongful death, seven-figure construction cases, and Jones Act claims. With multiple expedient, favorable results under her belt, she earned a reputation as a formidable litigator. However, her desire to help individuals who had been wronged stayed with her.

In 2021, Kelsey changed the direction of her career to rejoin Arnold & Itkin. Now, she’s come full circle: representing people who’ve suffered unimaginable tragedy against the large companies that harmed them. She’s honored to advocate for people who are experiencing the varied challenges that come after suffering loss. Her empathy compels her to make clients feel heard and understood, which drives her to fight even harder on their behalves. It’s why when Kelsey takes on a case, she doesn’t back down, no matter the challenge.

In her free time, Kelsey spends time outdoors with her husband Connor and her black Labrador Scout.
