MEET JOHN KIRBY
Attorney at Law
I’ve always believed that the attorney-client relationship works best when it’s founded on mutual respect. I genuinely value each client’s unique point of view and listen intently to his or her concerns. I have found that when my client carefully considers my advice as we work throughout the legal process, together we can achieve the best outcome.MORE ABOUT ME
Education is of high importance to me — in the courtroom and the classroom.
Everyone deserves the highest quality of legal representation. Years ago, I began teaching continuing education courses to my fellow legal professionals to enhance their practice of law. By sharing my knowledge of insurance law, personal injury law, and appellate law, I was able to help the next generation of attorneys become even better equipped to offer the best representation possible in North Carolina.
I want to make sure you’re just as informed as the attorneys I’ve taught.
My educational mission isn’t limited to other legal professionals. When I represent you, I take the time to make sure you fully understand what’s happening and what options are available to you. After all, this is your case. It’s only fitting that you should be able to make informed decisions. Only when the client is fully informed can he or she make the best decisions for their case.
I recently had the opportunity to work with John Kirby. He is knowledgeable, dependable, and always kept me informed of the status of my case. The case took approximately six months to conclude, and John worked tirelessly while helping me navigate some bureaucratic obstacles. He was always available to me if I had questions, and took time to explain everything thoroughly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal advice and assistance.
Fantastic. That would be the first word that comes to my mind to describe the representation I received from John. John expertly navigated my situation while keeping me up-to-date with prompt responses and detailed explanations of the situation. His honest, straight-forward approach is refreshing, giving you a realistic perspective for the possible outcomes of your case. He is persistent, and not afraid of a challenge. I would not hesitate to retain John again, and recommend him without reservations.

BACKED BY 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Throughout the course of my career, I have strived to be extremely well-versed in insurance law, appeals, personal injury, wrongful death claims, premises liability, products liability, civil appeals, construction law, and other litigation matters. Above all, though, I have learned that the most important thing I can do for my clients is be the resource they need from the moment we meet up until the moment their case is resolved in their favor.
INFORMATIVE & RESPONSIVE COUNSEL
Nothing adds stress to an already stressful situation than feeling left in the dark. With me, you can expect regular updates, prompt responses, and thorough answers to all of your questions. In fact, I live by a one-day response rule; if for any reason I can’t answer your call, I will make a point of returning that call within the next 24 hours.
