    • I do not recommend William Kirby.

    In 2014 I decided to go to Mr. Kirby for my divorce. My husband is currently incarcerated and I wanted to get this over with. Here we are in 2015 and I'm still married!! Not only has William not kept me informed since taking my money but he also has a ton of excuses on why it's taking so long. By the way I'm the one who is calling him whenever their phone is not off the hook. Due to my husband being in prison this was suppose to be a very fast process but when asking William about an update it is almost like he has an attitude with me. If you are considering divorce please go somewhere else because it is almost a year and no progress has been made.

    • I do not recommend William Kirby.

    I was recently jailed for burglarizing my own yard,
    I hired william Kirby to get me out of jail and drop my charges, after waiting two months in jail just waiting for a reply from William Kirby, he was no help for anything. He did not show up for any court dates. He took my money, and that was the only thing he has done

  3. very bad at staying in contact

    • I do not recommend William Kirby.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Divorce & Separation matter.

    didn't really help me at all with divorce he basically acted as a mediator between me and my future ex wife she actually filed and did everything I don't know why I even hired him

    • I do not recommend William Kirby.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Hired Mr. Kirby to file a Child Support Modification on June,2011. Didn't hear from him by Sept.2011 He said he forgot, and filed it then. He was also supposed to file a contempt. (he never filed the contempt ever) He never had the person served with the proper paperwork, his office rarely if ever returns phone calls, he never returns email, his receptionist might return the occasional email. communication is horrible. If you schedule an office visit, he cancels and reschedules at least 3 or 4 times before you actually get to see him, sometimes canceling as late as 10 minutes before your appointment time. My case NEVER even got into a court room, Mr. Kirby didn't even tell me about court papers that came in about my case. My case is still on the docket, I fired Mr. Kirby and hired someone else! STAY AWAY from this Attorney!

  5. Honest

    • I recommend William Kirby.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Will helped my family handle a custody case and while it was not an easy thing to go through, having a lawyer like him on my side that I respected and could speak with honestly helped me to get through this difficult time in my life. My family and I have dealt with a lot of lawyers in the area in the past and Will was the first one who I felt like did not see us as another paycheck. I would highly recommend Will for anyone who is looking for an attorney in the Columbus area.
