Steve and Margaret Kirby met in Law School. They hung out their shingle, shortly after Steve passed the bar; then Margaret passed it with both of them passing on the first attempt. Steve worked on private criminal work, personal injury and unlawful detainer cases. Margaret worked on personal injury matters and on unlawful detainer matters. The criminal, personal injury and unlawful detainer case work gave the Kirbys over 200 court and jury trials in the first years of their practice. In the late 1980s and early 1990s Steve and Margaret were retained by most of the major taxi companies in California to handle defense work and were on the ground floor when SuperShuttle Transportation System began and grew into a national company. The Kirbys did common carrier defense work for approximately 10 years along with their Plaintiff's personal injury work.
Steve and Margaret decided to focus their practice on Plaintiff's personal injury work and specifically, Steve's passion, motorcycle injury accidents. Steve had ridden motorcycles since he got out of the Marine Corps in 1971 and put together engines at night while he attended Law School during the day. Steve taught Margaret how to ride in the early 2000s and together they have ridden all over the United States and the provinces of Canada.
The hallmark of their practice is their personal service to the clients and the practice has encompassed trying cases throughout California from Redding to San Diego. Steve's cell phone is available 24-7 and it is normal for Steve to be going somewhere to assist a client while others on weekends and at night are sleeping.
