About Us

Our Story

In 1992, Mr. Kirk graduated from law school and starting working at the international law firm of Morrison and Foerster. This firm had approximately 600 attorneys overall, with 7 offices in California and 13 offices worldwide. In 1994, Mr. Kirk left Morrison & Foerster and started his own law firm. He had one client.

From 1994 through 2021, Mr. Kirk grew his firm to become one of Orange County’s premier trust and probate litigation firms. The Firm now has four attorneys, two paralegals, two document specialists, an administrative assistant and a bookkeeper.

Early in his solo career, Mr. Kirk became a certified specialist in Trust and Probate Law. Only ½ of 1% of all California attorneys have achieved this distinction. To be a specialist, one must pass a separate mini bar exam, take additional continuing education courses, and receive recommendations from one’s peers. For more information on legal specialization, see the California State Bar website by clicking here.

During his career, Mr. Kirk has become a fixture in the probate courtrooms across southern California, where he represents clients in hearings, trials and appeals. To date, the firm has represented literally hundreds of trust and probate clients. As an expert in trust/probate litigation, Mr. Kirk has represented clients in over 100 trials and appeals and has a proven record of success in Southern California’s Probate Courts.

Mr. Kirk personally manages all of the Firm’s cases and he is supported by a talented team of litigators, paralegals and support staff. Over the past 25 years, the Firm has grown to become one of Southern California’s elite trust and probate litigation firms. We handle all manner of complex trust and probate litigation from simple disputes to multi-faceted and multi-county cases. Interestingly, most of our cases are referred to us by other trust/probate lawyers whose clients need the highest level of specialized representation in dealing with complex trust and probate litigation matters.
