Attorney Kevin Lungwitz
Kevin Lungwitz represents Texas school employees all over the state in employment disputes and certification issues.
He began practicing law in 1989 in Dallas with the Earl Luna Firm. But employee rights beckoned, so from 1990-2007 he joined the legal team at the Texas State Teachers Association, a state-wide teachers union in Austin, where he served as staff attorney, then as General Counsel. As TSTA General Counsel, he managed eight staff and contract lawyers, litigated for school employees, and represented the association in other legal matters.
In 2007 he began The Lungwitz Law Firm, P.C., as his attorney peers elected him as Chair of the State Bar of Texas, School Law Section.
Since 2007, he has represented scores of members of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association, and he has counseled hundreds more by phone. As of January 2023, he has written over 100 legal columns in the TEPSA News.
Today, he represents members of ATPE, TSTA and TEPSA in a variety of cases.
For over 33 years, he has represented hundreds and hundreds of clients in grievances, school board meetings, TEA and SBEC hearings, CPS investigations, in trial court and on appeal, including cases before the Texas Supreme Court and the federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Since 1989, he has made too many presentations to count to school employees, education students, and lawyers on public education issues. Kevin and his wife, Jeana, are the authors of the book, Texas Family Law for School Administrators, Teachers and Lawyers. (2nd Edition, Park Place Publishing, July 2012)
Kevin graduated from Southwestern University in 1986, and Texas Tech School of Law in 1989, where he met his wife who also practices law in Austin. He was ranked the #1 high school tuba player in the State of Texas in 1982. He is passionate about being outside, running, hiking, music, and relaxing with family, friends and his dog.
