Early in his solo career, Mr. Kirk became a certified specialist in Trust and Probate Law.

Mr. Kirk has maintained his State Bar specialist certification over the years through annual trust/probate classes and a rigorous litigation practice. Mr. Kirk has become a regular in probate courtrooms across Southern California, where he appears weekly at hearings and trials.

Mr. Kirk personally manages all of the Firm’s cases and he is supported by a talented team of litigators, paralegals, and support staff. The Firm handles all manner of complex trust/probate litigation from simple disputes to multi-faceted and multi-county cases.
