About Me

Christa Kirk began her career as a lawyer in the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office. As an Assistant District Attorney, she prosecuted cases at all court levels, including Magistrate Court, Juvenile Court, and Superior Court. Additionally, she represented the State of Georgia at the appellate level at both the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia. She has handled every kind of criminal case from simple misdemeanor thefts to felony aggravated assault, drug possession, and murder. During her tenure at the DA’s Office, Christa served as a Senior Assistant District Attorney. As part of her job responsibilities, Christa supervised other ADA’s and trained prosecutors and police officers on all aspects of criminal law and trial techniques. Having prosecuted and reviewed thousands of cases, she has a keen sense of how jurors, prosecutors, and judges will respond to legal and factual arguments. Christa successfully tried cases before juries and has been featured on nationally televised programs.


She is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals and the United States District Court, Northern District.

  • Stephanie Iley Salb

    Although I just met Christa a few months ago, I certainly knew who she was before then. Christa has earned a stellar representation in the legal community with judges, attorneys and clients. We have worked together as attorney coaches for our daughters' high school mock trial team and are currently collaborating on the same side of a Gwinnett County case. She is extremely knowledgeable of the law and trial and litigation ins and outs in particular.She is also quite pleasant personally. I endorse this lawyer.
