About Kirk

Learn Kirk’s areas of practice.

I became a lawyer, after a career as a writer, comedian and public speaker for a very simple and profound reason: I'd witnessed a hit and run drunk driver kill my pedestrian father.  


My Dad and I stood only a few feet apart and I was fortunate not to be injured myself.  Most of the story isn't appropriate for this type of site, but the part that does belong here is this: most of the lawyers my family dealt with in the aftermath were fine professionals, but they lacked passion, they lacked the patience my Deaf mother required and they lacked that basic humanness we all need when tragedy strikes.  I became a lawyer to help people in their times of need in the way I wished we had been helped.  


Am I perfect?  Do I return every call immeadiately?  Well, no, but I try to give every client something more than my legal expertise.  I try to give them my humanity.


Lastly, whatever has happened to you, the courts will never give you closure, that comes from finding a way to live a fruitful life despite tragedy.

Successful Outcome
I knew Kirk personally and talked with him when I had been terminated from a job. He is a careful listener and was able to explain what the problem was with my termination. Kirk and his team worked with me to form a complaint, giving me a realistic expectation of the process, timelines, and likely outcomes. Everything went about the way Kirk said it would and I am pleased with the whole process. And I would recommend anyone wanting to be told the truth to consult with Kirk.

Treats you like a friend, fights for you like a lawyer.
Kirk treated my case with great personal compassion and genuine concern. He always put my own best interest first and when decisions needed to be made, he always advised and explained the full pros and cons of each option and put me in full control of making each decision. Kirk is quick and considerate with his responses, and you can always trust him to keep you informed and advocate relentlessly on your behalf! I will continue to highly recommend Kirk and the rest of his hard working colleauges to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and compassionate law professional.

Kirk makes a difference in people's lives!
My professional relationship with Kirk has spanned almost a decade. Kirk was an incredible resource to me at times when I felt overwhelmed and and I needed legal advice to help guide my decision making. I continue to recommend Kirk and his firm because even if something is outside of the scope of their practice they are well connected in the field and an excellent referral will me made. Kirk's passion for the citizens of New Hampshire has set into motion changes that have not only improved the lives of individuals, including myself, but has charted us on a new course for a more fair and equitable future for generations to come.

Client referral for Kirk Simoneau
I met Attorney Simoneau after being referred to his firm Nixon, Vogelman, Barry ,Slawsby & Simoneau from the Lawyers Referral Service. Mr.Simoneau was very knowledgeable regarding civil rights issues and provided me with the guidance to make an informed and educated decision to settle a case and put behind years of stress and more legal fees. I am happy to report that because of his integrity, good judgement and advice I was able to close the door behind years of stress and get on with my life, "For The Trials In Your Life" you want a friend like Kirk!
