Politely Agressive!!!
Mr. Kirby did a superb job!! Words can't describe the the level of expertise, professionalism and energy he put into handling our case. It paid off because we won both cases. If you want someone who will fight for you and stand up for your rights in the Courtroom, look no further, and don't waste your money on any other. Mr. Kirby and his team are by far the best choice. Thanks again :)

Excellent Service
I wish Mr. Kirby could get more than a five star rating. He goes above and beyond for his clients. Mr. Kirby provided impeccable counsel and far exceeded every expectation I had for my case.

David Kirby Review November 2014
November 17, 2014 Review For Avvo, Mr. Kirby It is a fine balancing act for an attorney to represent a new client in a lawsuit settlement and mediation proceedings, but David Kirby rose seamlessly to the occasion. Mr. Kirby’s skills, experience and enthusiasm enabled my case, an extremely difficult one, to resolve in my favor and restored a much needed normalcy to my living conditions that had been profoundly degraded by the defendant’s refusal to properly maintain my property. Mr. Kirby was able to deal with these very difficult circumstances, which despite my constant efforts to work with the defendants, had left me no recourse but to hire an attorney. Mr. Kirby’s approach was always measured, diplomatic and articulate so that my interests were superbly represented. Mr. Kirby always returned my phone calls and correspondence in a timely fashion and he was always more than willing to listen and discuss my case over the phone or in person. His generosity with his time was commendable throughout my entire case, which lasted just over a year. Mr. Kirby’s negotiation skills and tactics always served my best interest and could never be considered to be vitriolic towards the defendants even during the most frustrating, difficult and sensitive times we continuously encountered with them. Throughout the entire case, Mr. Kirby meticulously reviewed all the documentation provided and was very familiar with all the details of my case. His professional conduct, ethical standards, courtesy and good communication skills always encouraged and put me at ease whenever we discussed the issues of the case. He was adept at diffusing the extremely frightening and anxiety provoking circumstances with which I was dealing and even went out of his way to accommodate me even when I had transportation problems during the mediation proceedings. David Kirby is an attorney who is adept at meeting the needs of his client. I would highly recommend Mr. Kirby and feel sure that others will similarly benefit from working with him.
