Ms. Ilse Marie Kirchgraber is an associate attorney at Thomas J. Henry.

A native Texan, Ms. Kirchgraber graduated magna cum laude from University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor degree in Criminal Justice before completing her Doctor of Jurisprudence at Texas Tech School of Law, again graduating magna cum laude. As a law student, Ms. Kirchgraber assisted in the preparation of a successful brief to the Texas Supreme Court in a controversial matter.

Prior to her work in personal injury, Ms. Kirchgraber worked extensively in Family Law, Estate Planning and Guardianship, Probate Law, and Oil and Gas Law. While working with a small boutique personal injury firm in Lubbock, Ms. Kirchgraber assisted in the preparation of multiple successful motions for summary judgment and responses to motions for summary judgment.

She is an equestrian with four horses – two Friesians, a Peruvian Paso, and an American Saddlebred – and also has one dog whom is “part of the family.” Ms. Kirchgraber’s love for animals extends beyond her home as she has volunteered for San Antonio Pets Alive and provided pro bono work to VA Dogs in Kerrville, Texas. She also enjoys rockhounding, fossil hunting, and cooking and maintains an avid interest in history, especially the Dark Ages and Medieval periods.
