Hired him to take care of my divorce almost 2 years ago. Im still married!! Will not answer phone calls or even pick up certified letters that have been sent to him. It is really sad when you call to consult with another attorney and they ask who you currently have hired and you tell them and they LAUGH! Went 8 months with no child support because he would not file the paperwork. The whole situation has been a nightmare!!!

Mr. Kirby helped me get power of attorney for my dad who couldn't do for himself and was taken advantage of by his now ex-wife. He also made a new will for my father. He was very easy to talk to and he made himself easily contactable to us. It blows my mind to read some of these negative reviews. He is a great lawyer and I highly recommended him if you ever need a lawyer!

I started a Divorce around April 2014, after paying Mr. Kirby 1,000 dollars before leaving for Korea in Nov 2014 he told me I was okay and he would handle and he never did. I came back to the states to visit in Sept of 2014 and went to his office to find out why my still Husband had not heard anything from Mr. Kirby and he said my husband never answered the phone. I also got my husband to come in while I was in the states and we both signed there in the office and his assistant at the time had it notarized right there and then. I was happy because I was leaving that very next day to go back to Korea and I felt my Divorce would be done in a month now. I called home and the lawyer to see if I could get a copy of the Divorce only to find out he has not FILED the papers at all. I came home again after learning he has never filed my Divorce and I went to his office, left notes and my new number as well as my mothers house number there in Columbus and nothing I heard nothing from him. He will not answer the phone neither the door when I was home. I even asked for my papers that are signed and notarized already so I could file myself and I heard nothing back from him.

I hired this pos in May 2012 for a divorce. Was told it would be easy peasy, needless to say, I'm still freakin married. He's done NOTHING. He's never in the office, has never filed, never returns my calls, I'm over it. I'm going to hire a new lawyer and sue for my money back!

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 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

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

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!

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.
