Kory S. Booth
Kory S. Booth has worked in private practice for over twenty years in firms ranging from boutique to large and positions ranging from Associate to Managing Partner. Earlier in his career, Mr. Booth represented clients in complex litigation involving real estate, construction, insurance coverage, intellectual property, personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability and civil rights - but discovered his true calling in 2014 after experiencing personal tragedy and deliberate injustice. After being wrongfully targeted by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (aka “Child Protective Services” or “CPS”) as a result of false accusations by the biological mother of two of his children during a divorce and custody action, Mr. Booth's son and daughter were placed in the foster care system for over eight months. While disproving the allegations against him, Mr. Booth personally witnessed and documented evidence of CPS filing false affidavits, committing perjury in Court, refusing to even look at exculpatory evidence and seeking to falsify evidence produced by their own expert witnesses. Shocked by the corruption within the very organization that is entrusted with protecting children by promoting “the best interest of the child,” Mr. Booth left his position managing the Austin Office of a national litigation firm and dedicated 100% of his time and practice to bringing his children home and fighting CPS corruption. After prevailing in his own case, Mr. Booth dedicated his practice of law to protecting children and families with the same zeal, passion and professionalism that successfully brought his children home to him.
Mr. Booth is committed to fighting for families both in and out of the courtroom. As an individual case only affects the specific family involved, Mr. Booth contributes to state and national-level transformation by providing testimony to our elected leaders. Mr. Booth is proud to have testified on multiple occasions in the Texas House of Representatives regarding CPS Reform and was thankful to see some of that reform passed through the legislature and signed into law by Texas Governor, Greg Abbott. Mr. Booth continues to volunteer his time to advocate for additional reforms to safeguard parents’ fundamental rights and ensure that the child’s best interest never takes a backseat to federal stipends that incentivizes corruption within the Department of Family and Protective Services.
