Amazing Lawyer
The absolute BEST law firm! I cannot say enough about the level of expertise and professionalism of Kirby Minor! Stressful legal situations are made much more bearable with Kirby Minor by your side! My questions are answered promptly and in “regular person” terms! Although no one wishes to be in the need of a lawyer, I know at times I was an unbearable client, but my case was anything but easy. I got the results I wanted and even if I could be gruff at times with him he kept a professional manor. Thank you for all that you do for your clients!

Highly recommended
Absolutely love Kirby!! Very professional and overall just a kind person.. I had been trying to get divorced for 2 years.. found Kirby and it was done in 2 months. Best money I’ve ever spent and would totally use him again if needed. Thank you Kirby!

Wonderful Attorney
Kirby is an outstanding attorney! He helped me through a long, drawn out and difficult divorce. He is very knowledgeable and always prepared. I am very pleased with his work ethic. He fights hard for his clients and never gives up. Kirby explains everything in great detail and always has time for his clients. He is honest and trustworthy and a wonderful person!

Divorce . . . . Kirby was great to work with . . . .
Kirby got this done for me and made it easy and simple for me. He worked with me and the divorce was not contested by my ex-. Kirby is easy to talk to and made me very relaxed.

Kirby exceeded my expectations.
I was in a head on collision that was no fault of mine. I was originally going to try to handle the case on my own with the help of a friend who used to be a paralegal. I bumped into Kirby one night and he offered to represent me in the medical claim. He offered to do the work for a reduced fee. We ended up settling with the other guys insurance company for a figure that was easily 3-4 times more than what I expected. Plus he found coverage on my insurance policy that paid half again what we got from the other guy. I'm so glad I decided to let Kirby help me. He definitely earned his fee and exceeded my expectations.

Kirby did a great job with my divorce!
Kirby handled all the situations that came up with my ex in a very positive and creative manner. I would recommend him to anyone needing family legal services. He responded to all of my inquiries quickly and kept me informed every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable, and a nice guy too!

Very professional!
Kirby handled our case with great care, he really made my son and I feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He was very professional in filing all the proper paperwork and keeping us informed during the whole ordeal. He was easily able to communicate with my son that has a developmental disability, that eased MY mind.

Doesn’t deserve one star
After I hired Kirby it was one excuse after another. 2.5 years for a simple modification and he couldn’t handle that. He canceled meetings after I took day off work and drove 200 miles because his tummy hurt, very hard to reach, little to no follow up and zero gumption. All he did was take my money. Had to fire him because he was completely incompetent.

Don’t waste your money
I paid Kirby to represent me after having a great consultation. He did not fulfill a single promise. I was extremely underrepresented in court if at all. Because of his lack of preparation and total disregard for my welfare I ended up losing my case and am now having to hire another attorney to clean up the mess he created. Lesson learned.
