Julie Goen Panger was born and raised in Seminole, Texas. She attended Abilene Christian University and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science/History in 2004.

Soon thereafter, she attended the Texas Tech University School of Law earning her Juris Doctorate in 2009. She married her husband, Josh Panger, in 2011. Josh is originally from Amarillo, Texas.
While Mrs. Panger focuses on criminal and civil appellate work, she has expanded her practice to include estate planning and administration. Mrs. Panger joined The Kiechler Law Firm in 2012, and has proven to be a key asset to the firm in multiple capacities. In addition to her full case load, she is involved in researching, briefing, and preparing all the firm’s cases for trial. Mrs. Panger’s skills extend beyond the courtroom as she dedicates her time tirelessly advocating for her clients at the appellate level; very few attorneys can manage the demand required by appellate courts throughout Texas, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Texas.
In 2015, Mrs. Panger was awarded the Attorney Ad Litem of the Year by CASA for Children of the South Plains. She was nominated once again in 2016 and 2017. This recognition exemplifies Mrs. Panger’s passion and dedication to her community and reemphasizes her focus on the client. Additionally, Mrs. Panger was nominated by the Lubbock Area Bar Association as Young Lawyer of the Year in both 2015 and 2016. Most recently, Julie was selected by the Lubbock Magazine for the Top Attorneys 2019 Appellate Law list. She was one of the five local attorneys selected for the list.
Mrs. Panger is active in various community organizations. She is a member of the Junior League of Lubbock and is involved in the SPARK Mentoring Program for the organization; she currently serves as the Public Relations Chair for 2018-2019.
