Competence and Experience

Kirby & McGuinn, A P.C. is an AV® Rated law firm and was incorporated in 1991. We are seven lawyers with an average of over twenty years of experience in the fields in which we practice. Our lawyers have achieved high peer review ratings and are often called upon as speakers at continuing education and industry events.


Kirby & McGuinn is the only law firm we know of, big or small, that posts hourly rates and form retainer agreements on its website for colleagues and prospective clients to see.


We employ technology to give us the ability to interact with much larger law firms, both as adversaries in litigation and collaborators in transactions. We can represent clients in complex cases involving thousands of docket entries. We have the ability to handle e-discovery and “document heavy” cases.


Your contact with us is a direct line to the desk of all attorneys and paralegals responsible for your case. Kirby & McGuinn gives clients the ability to see their files online.


In 2007, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California adopted its Guidelines of Civility and Professionalism. Each of our attorneys has pledged to observe, and to encourage others to observe, these guidelines.
