Kaitlyn Luck

Born in the panhandle, Kaitlyn’s roots run deep in Lipscomb and Beaver Counties, with both sides of her family settling in the area during the pioneer days. After graduating from Texas Tech School of Law in 2013, she worked for almost a decade in New Mexico, focusing her practice primarily on regulatory and litigated natural resources, energy, and real estate matters. She regularly represented oil and gas companies before the Oil Conservation Division in New Mexico, before joining the Division as the Division’s lead oil and gas attorney on regulatory and compliance issues. Kaitlyn also has extensive experience practicing in the areas of environmental permitting and spills, public entity tort, construction law, business law, personal injury, insurance litigation, and other complex litigation and regulatory matters. Her clients range from oil and gas companies and renewable energy developers to private landowners. Kaitlyn’s experience is an asset in the courtroom.
