From the Family
Mark Lyndon Kincaid, of Austin, Texas, suffered a stroke on December 31st, 2015 and never regained consciousness. He died peacefully with his family by his side on January 19th, 2016.
Mark would want those who knew him to know a few things in the hopes it might bring you comfort. First, he had a great life, and though it was too short, it was a full life, lived exactly the way he wanted it – in the company of his family as often as possible, with many dear friends around him at work and at play, and doing work he was passionate about and made a difference. Second, his biggest wish was to be a great father to his three sons. He was so very proud of each of them and loved them each individually and unconditionally. Those are the words he always used. Third, he would thank all of you, you know who you are, for being part of his journey in this life.
From the Firm
Mark Kincaid was a fabulous lawyer who gave his all to his clients and to his profession. Without a doubt, Mark was the foremost lawyer in Texas specializing in representing consumers and policyholders in insurance disputes. For example, Mark successfully argued landmark Texas cases establishing the rights of first party insureds to sue for unfair insurance settlement practices (Vail v. Texas Farm Bureau) and the rights of insureds under liability policies to sue for an insurer’s unfair refusal to settle (Rocor v. National Union). He was frequently called upon by other lawyers to give them advice about insurance issues affecting their clients.
From the Legal Community
“Mark Kincaid was thought of by really good lawyers as being a whole level above: really exceptional mind, the keenest intellect, incredible attention to detail. The fact that he used those talents to represent deserving individual clients—people injured by negligence and defective products, and when an insurance company didn’t live up to its obligation—it was indicative of the fact he as a person was very generous,” said TTLA President Jeffrey Simon. “Everyone who knew him feels the loss,” he said.
