EFFECTIVE LITIGATOR

When you have a legal concern - regardless of whether it pertains to an appeal, an insurance dispute, a lawsuit, personal injury, or other matters - you want someone on your side who is ready for anything. As a litigator, arbitrator, certified mediator, and appellate lawyer, I am more than prepared to offer flexible, proactive, and effective solutions.

INVESTED IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE

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 throughout 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.

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.

J.W. Palmer

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.

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 law, 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.

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.

READY TO MEDIATE, ARBITRATE, OR LITIGATE

Legal terms like "mediate," "arbitrate," and "litigate" may sound overwhelming to you right now, but here's what it all boils down to: I am thoroughly experienced resolving legal disputes in a variety of ways. In other words, I'm prepared to use multiple negotiation tactics in order to approach your unique situation in the most effective and efficient way possible. I'll be happy to explain these options further as we work together on your case.
