This review is regarding my incredible experience with Mr. Kirby Combs (Criminal Defense Attorney) in Riverside County.
Kirby Combs is a first class professional and most definitely the type of attorney you want by your side in any type of criminal case or legal representation.
I was convicted with two very serious felony charges at the Riverside Superior Court and facing between 5-10 yrs in jail. Kirby was so professional and studied the case so intensely with the tremendous support of his wife & partner Kim Combs.
They were so supportive towards me and gave me the confidence I needed to get through such a horrific experience and the thought of going to jail.
They reassured me that they could get these charges reduced to a misdemeanor with no jail time and gave me the confidence to get through such a devastating time in my life. They are both not only first class professionals, but also truly lovely caring people that treated me with the most outmost respect.
After several appearances in court and fighting up against one of the strongest District Attorneys and Judges in the County of Riverside, Kirby was successful in reducing my charges to a misdemeanor with only 30 days house arrest. "WOW" what a relief and total success.
I have dealt with several attorneys in my life time for other cases, but I have yet to find another one that truly cares about people like Mr. Kirby Combs.
Kirby & Kim thank you so much for my freedom and giving me "HOPE" in my life. For anyone out there looking for the best of the best in attorneys your search is over!! I would Highly recommend Mr. Kirby Combs for any legal representation.

I can't say enough about Kirby and Kim and what they did for me.. I was charged with shipping 22 pounds of marijuana to new Jersey and due to some old priors the DA was stuck on sending me to prison for 16 months a felony and not give me probation or any type of classes.. Kirby kept fighting and not gave up on me and never backed down from his offer he gave them and eventually we won I got a misdemeanor and 45 days house arrest.. Kirby and Kim are a blessing they care about u they gave me their personal cell phone and Kim would always keep me informed of everything going on and I never felt rushed to take a deal or to hurry up or anything they would both talk to me until all my questions were answered.. I highly reccomend Kirby not only is he the best lawyer but he has a great personality and a great big heart like no other.. I can't thank them enough and if somebody is reading this review don't look any further and hire Kirby because if u don't your gona wish u did I guarantee u that you won't find nobody like Kirby and kim... I will definetely owe them forever they gave me another chance to stay home with my family... thank u a million times...
