I cannot express enough what an excellent lawyer and individual Mr. Gilliard is. My son was referred to Mr. Gilliard for a DUI charge. Before Mr. Gilliard could even address these charges my son received another DUI charge. At this time, my son had not finished paying Mr. Gilliard’s retention for the first charge. When I contacted Mr. Gilliard to see what needed to be done he met with me immediately and showed true compassion for our situation. Thankfully, my son was able to be enrolled in a treatment facility and things have totally turned around. Mr. Gilliard kept in contact throughout this process with the courthouse, the treatment facility and myself. Thanks to Mr. Gilliard my son was just accepted into Richmond County’s Accountability Program. Without Mr. Gilliard I do not believe any of this would have been possible. His fees are very reasonable and he truly cares about his clients. I would refer him to anyone in need of legal assistance. He is my hero.

Kirk is a well respected and professional attorney. Kirk helped me obtain my right to bare arms and he was knowledgeable and swift in his actions and everything went well.

I became acquainted with Attorney Gilliard (Kirk) after being indicted on 16 felony charges - Yes 16! 1 count of conspiracy to commit medicaid fraud and 15 counts of medicaid fraud. You can imagine (or not) what I was about to endure at the moment of finding out this horrible news while experiencing defamation of my very being and the constant “what’s next.”
For over a year, I learned Kirk. I found him to be of candid character with remarkable knowledge of the laws, my rights as a person and my options for each step of the process. For every conversation that we had, it seemed that I often had several questions (being new to all of this); Kirk was always patient with me and took time to answer and explain in laymen terms and even provide resources to me to assist in my understanding. Along with his high level of integrity, I found his perseverance and analytical skills to be of great value for my defense, having a sharp mind and capable of making quick judgments - thinking at all times and great at tying things together to then communicate in a manner that was precise, clear and even theatrical at times. His dedication and devotion to his work was moving! In choosing an attorney, I never thought about the importance of the legal counsels heart. I’ve always thought of situations as such to be very political; but Kirk showed me that he actually cared. I learned that he not only cared about me, but about my family. He represented me for over a year and of that time, we spent two entire weeks in jury trial; two long weeks might I add. Everyday of my jury trial, Kirk represented me with great profession ensuring that I was provided with a fair trial and that I was heard. In closing, he told the jurors that they should find me not guilty of all 16 charges and at the end of the trail he would walk me to my car to send me home to my children - and he did just that! After his hard work and dedication, I was acquitted on all charges! He walked me to my vehicle and sent me home to my family. These several words that I have shared cannot express everything I could share, but I must say that I am very grateful to have had Kirk as my legal counsel!

I recently finished a Medicaid Fraud trial with Mr. Gilliard's client was charged with 15 counts of Medicaid Fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit Medicaid Fraud. He is one the best lawyers I've seen! After two weeks of trial the jury came back with not guilty on all counts for his client. It doesn't get better than that! Mr. Gilliard is the attorney you need!
