A Cimarron Attorney Representing the Best Interests of Kansas Farms, Businesses and Residents
Four decades’ experience, including a victory before the U.S Supreme Court
Kyler G. Knobbe has provided business, real estate and estate legal services, counsel and representation to farms, small-to-mid-sized businesses and residents of southwest Kansas since 1974.
Small-town traits that have served well
Kyler brings the traits acquired growing up in a small town — hard work, moral integrity and family values — to his practice.
He is a careful listener and respectful of each client’s goals, requirements and circumstances. He is also a straight shooter, not afraid to speak up when he thinks a case hasn’t got a leg to stand on, or when mediation is the more cost-effective and/or relationship-saving option.
A commitment to reason and excellence
Among Kyler’s many successes is the 1991 U.S. Supreme Court case of Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural Telephone Service Company, Inc. (Tom Feist was Kyler’s junior high basketball coach and high school history teacher in Spearville, Kansas.)
The court upheld by a vote of 9-0 a ruling that Rural could not claim copyright infringement regarding phone listings Feist had sourced from Rural’s phone directories because Rural had not authored the information in any sense.
The verdict was important because the Court in essence protected the integrity of the public domain from usurpation by would‐be copyright owners.
Kyler’s practice has been recognized for excellence by his legal peers: Kyler has earned an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, the highest recognition possible in the legal industry, for his professionalism and ethics (for 20+ years continuously).
