About Us

Competence and Experience

Kirby & McGuinn, A P.C. is an AV® Rated law firm and was incorporated in 1991. We are nine lawyers with an average of 20 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.

Transparency

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.

Ability

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.

Responsiveness

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.

Integrity

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.

Where We Practice

We have appeared in superior courts and courts of appeal throughout the State of California. We routinely appear pro hac vice to represent California clients in cases pending in bankruptcy courts and federal district courts throughout the country.

The adoption of online dockets, and widespread acceptance of telephone appearances, have made it more practical to represent California clients in any court in the United States in which they must appear.

Our location in San Diego is ideal for handing cases with connections to the cities listed below, which are all within the Southern District of California.
