The absolute best lawyer you could find!!
I want to start this post by saying that Winston has been on my case for the past almost 4 years (since the day after the incident). I have gotten to know him extremely well, as there were times that we spoke almost daily regarding my case. Winston kept me informed and up to date on every single thing that went on regarding my case- which is something that is incredibly important to you when you have gone through something traumatic. This man went to war for me, literally. There was not a single stone that he did not turn over. He is everything that anyone could dream of in an attorney. I never questioned anything because I knew that Winston always had my best interest in mind and like I previously stated, he explained everything in detail to me. He did the same for my family. The best choice I ever made was choosing Winston as my attorney. I could not have made it through without him and I have no doubt that without him and his relentless work and dedication, I would never have seen justice. Winston got me justice!! Something I never imagined I would see. They say you want a Pitbull in the courtroom on your side and Winston is just that! A fierce fighter for his client, but at the same time one of the most caring and compassionate human beings I have ever met. I don't say that for any reason other than the fact that it is true. This man has cried with me, fought for me, talked to me, believed in me when I thought no one did. Aside from being hands down the best lawyer, he cares. He cares about you, no matter your background or who you are. He cares about justice. He wants to help people heal and he has been one of the biggest components in my healing. For the rest of my life, I will be grateful for Winston, for much more than just being my attorney, for much more than winning my case, for much more than words could ever begin to describe. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and hire Winston Kirby. You will not be disappointed!

Hire Winston!
I was in a very serious accident due to a drunk driver hitting our car. Winston responded immediately to personally defend and counsel me through the challenging legal process. He provided proven, trustworthy advice each step of the way. I can't imagine what would have happened if I hadn't had Winston defending me. He was fully invested and accessible, spending countless hours ensuring a positive outcome for my case. I will always be grateful that I chose to hire Winston and would advise anyone to do the same. You will have a genuine, caring lawyer on your side that will provide excellent results.

Financial Professional
I was in a horrific biking accident and the defendant’s insurance company was trying to undercut me on the bills I had to pay out of pocket. It was a very trying time for my family, and close to becoming a huge emotional and financial mess. I hired Winston per the recommendation of a colleague and I felt good about our relationship after our first consultation. It was obvious he was knowledgable, persistent, and most importantly, I could tell he had integrity. Winston went head to head with one of the largest insurance companies to help recoup my expenses. What a relief it was to step away from the situation and let Winston and his team, who I now had the utmost faith in, take over. Long story short, Winston was able to recoup ALL of my expenses for doctor’s bills and rehabilitation, as well as a significant (and unexpected) sum of money for pain and suffering. I was over the moon. I would recommend Winston to anyone who has been injured. Don’t chance it with the insurance companies- hire Winston and his team to get the compensation and service you deserve.

Great representation
Winston has been an outstanding lawyer throughout a tragic point in my life. He came highly recommended from a friend after my accident. From the hospital bed to full recovery, he took care of everything and left me to worry about nothing but getting better. He is a great guy, accompanied by the best staff.

Brendan Bates Review
Mr. Kirby provided me with excellent service in obtaining a settlement from an accident I was in. He explained the process and managed my expectations well throughout. Not only did Winston alleviate the burden of going through the process on my own but the final settlement was also greater than initially expected.

Above and Beyond
I hired Winston as my attorney after sustaining several major injuries as a passenger in a serious car accident. He was very thorough and kept me updated the entire time, allowing me to solely concentrate on recovery, without having to stress about what would happen with my case. Winston got me the maximum payout I could have received through the person at fault's insurance. However, there were outside issues with my insurance company and hospital billing that were going to leave me with a much lower payment outcome. Even though Winston's work was technically already done, he further spent countless hours dealing with less than cooperative insurance representatives to get me back to the best outcome possible. I will be forever grateful for the amount of time and all of the hard work Winston spent on this case with my best interest always in mind.
