Kay Caballero

Kay Caballero is the Executive Director and Managing Attorney of the Legal Aid Society of Lubbock, Inc. Kay started at the agency in 2002 as a staff attorney and was promoted to Director in 2003. During her tenure, Kay has expanded the agency from an office with two attorneys covering only Lubbock County to its current capacity, providing services to twelve counties, including Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Terry, and Yoakum counties. Several years ago, Kay lost a client in a domestic violence situation. Following this tragedy, Kay and the District Attorney established the Domestic Violence Taskforce to exchange information and ideas to deal with the overwhelming problems of domestic violence.

Kay served on the Texas Access to Justice Commission and is on the Lubbock County Bar “Access to Justice Committee,” a program that works to assist local pro se litigants. Kay has also worked diligently to collaborate with other local agencies in innovative ways to increase and improve services including receiving a federal grant to create a new project in Hockley County, the RIO Project.

Prior to law school, Kay worked at Texas Tech University in the department of Institutional Research for more than a decade. She returned to Law School later in life with a desire to use the practice of law to help women and children.

Kay lives in Lubbock with her husband of thirty plus years. She spends her weekends enjoying time with her family – especially her four grandchildren.
