I got a settlement of my Workers' Compensation claim. The settlement was fair and was handled professionally and quickly. I was very pleased and have recommended Mr. Kirk to my friends.
My calls were returned and my question were always answered.

The first legal firm I had hired for my workers comp case was not up to the task. Then a friend handed me a card for Mr. kirks firm stating he was very good at getting things done quickly,(comparativly speaking), for his clients. Upon meeting Mr. Kirk and his staff I knew I made the right decision to consult and hire his firm. I was treated as a human being with needs and they were the ones to handle my situation. Even though I am disabled for life I am extremely happy with the results and will be able to live the rest of my life free and clear of trying to live on a meager ssd income. THANK YOU MR. KIRK and your staff, again and again. If you ever have a need for a workers comp or social security issue, this is the firm to hire. I am constantly recommending his firm to those in need and will continue to do so. He won and settled my case inside of 2 yrs to wit the first firm had 6 yrs and could not accomplish the task!!!! Now thats dedication. Again, THANK YOU MR. KIRK. To all others out there, you'd be foolish not to consult Mr. Kirk and his firm right from the get go! That is my testimony and I'm sticking to it. Thank you.

I was hurt at work and confused about the Workers' Compensation system. A friend told me about Mr. Kirk, so I went and got the help I needed to understand my current situation, and how things could work out in the future. I was very relieved. I got the help I needed and I even got the help I didn't know I needed.
