A Family's Adventure to Save Lives
Introduced by Lion John Nyfeler
Professionally, Doug Kilday is a trial lawyer with Graves, Dougherty, Hearon & Moody and has more than twenty-three years of experience handling complex business-related cases in a wide variety of areas, including contracts, real estate, construction, wind energy, oil & gas, fiduciary duties, and professional liability. He has tried cases for both plaintiffs and defendants, and has represented clients in both state and federal court and in arbitration proceedings. Thais Kilday holds two graduate degrees from the University of Texas and has worked with the Executive Team for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and its predecessor agency, the Texas Department of Human Services.
In 2017, Doug, Thais and their three children embarked on a year-long mission to serve others in Cambodia. While there, Doug and Thais served the International Justice Mission (IJM), the world’s largest anti-slavery organization. They assisted with the prosecution of slave traffickers, resulting in a 100% success rate and eighteen convictions over the course of eight trials.
They will share the stories of their amazing journey including how they made this bold decision; what role faith played; what it’s like to take a family of five to the other side of the world for a year; why they are drawn to the fight against slavery and human trafficking; and much much more.
