As the Managing Partner of Lee, Gober & Reyna, Kenneth “Tray” Gober has dedicated his legal career to representing those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others. Tray’s commitment to this cause traces back to a personal experience at the age of 10 when his family fell victim to a second-time drunk driver. This traumatic event fueled his passion for advocating on behalf of individuals harmed by the careless and reckless actions of others.
Throughout his career, Tray has focused on defending individuals involved in various personal injury cases, including car accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, and products liability. His special emphasis lies in representing victims of drunk driving accidents, as well as bicyclists and motorcyclists involved in collisions with vehicles.
While Tray recognizes the value of negotiation, he remains unyielding when it comes to protecting his clients’ rights. “You need only sit outside my office door while I’m negotiating with an insurance adjuster to know that I refuse to play games and will zealously advocate for my clients, whether it’s a $200 or $200,000 case. I fight for every penny owed.”
Tray’s passion and unwavering advocacy have garnered him the respect of defense counsel, insurance companies, and former clients. Many of his previous clients even refer him cases, a testament to the trust he has built in the legal community.
A distinguished graduate of Baylor Law School with honors, Tray embarked on his legal career by taking on high-stakes cases and quickly establishing a favorable reputation. In 2004, he faced a personal tragedy when he lost his fiancée to medical malpractice, providing him with a unique perspective into the suffering of his clients. Tray emphasizes, “Representing injury clients is about so much more than the money value of the case. No amount of money will be worth what has been taken. I start with the human and emotional value and build from there to seek a just amount.”
A proud native Texan, born in Brownwood and raised in Terrell, Tray earned his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M. Committed to community involvement, he participates in Austin projects such as Destination Imagination, the Austin Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (AGLCC), and adjunct professor at UT Law School paralegal studies. Tray is also a devoted husband who finds joy in traveling, gardening and spending time in New Orleans.
