About me

Mr. Kirby G. Smith is the Founding Partner of the Kirby G. Smith Law Firm. Mr. Smith’s passion to work in the employment law field began before he even attended law school, working as an office manager and legal assistant for an employment firm. Over the years, Mr. Smith has accumulated substantial legal experience in the employment field, working for employment law firms for many years. Mr. Smith has seen the inner-workings of many different types of employers, as his past work experience has taken him through both the federal government’s Department of Housing and Urban Development and the United States Air Force in Warner Robins, GA. He now takes all his experience as an employment lawyer and provides it at prices all employees can afford.


Mr. Smith has taken employment law cases going before both the United States District Court and the United States Court of Appeals. Additionally, he has tried cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), and the Inspector General’s Office.


Mr. Smith was born and raised in Conyers, Georgia, and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia. He is an avid runner and gets in as much football-watching as his weekends permit.

    I have known Kirby Smith since 2006 and over the years I have referred a number of my own family, friends, and clients to Kirby for help with their employment law issues and discrimination claims. They have all given me the same feedback. He is honest, thorough, knowledgable, professional, and fair. I strongly endorse Kirby Smith!
