A Zealous Defendant of the Accused
Christa Kirk, our founder, had often observed defendants being underrepresented in court when she was still working as a prosecutor. When this happens, injustice occurs. In 2013, after more than nine years of prosecuting, she decided to move into private practice and established THE KIRK LAW FIRM, P.C.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, “Everyone charged with a penal offense has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty.” Attorney Kirk and our entire team will use our vast experience to defend you and argue on your behalf. We will work hard and fight for you, without fear of litigating in a courtroom.
Before establishing THE KIRK LAW FIRM, P.C. in Lawrenceville, GA, our founder was able to gain knowledge and experience by working in the public sector. Having prosecuted and reviewed thousands of cases, she has developed a keen sense of how jurors, prosecutors, and judges respond to legal and factual arguments. She has successfully tried cases before juries and has been featured on nationally televised programs.
Assistant District Attorney (ADA)
Attorney Kirk began her career as a lawyer in the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office. As an ADA, she prosecuted cases at all court levels, including the Magistrate, Juvenile, and Superior Courts. Her years of working in the DA’s office served as her training ground for practicing legal defense. Gaining experience in prosecution has given her a competitive edge in court trials, as she can infer how prosecutors think when handling a case.
Senior Assistant District Attorney
During her tenure at the DA’s Office, Attorney Kirk served as a Senior Assistant District Attorney. As part of her responsibilities, she supervised other ADAs as well as trained prosecutors and police officers on all aspects of criminal law and trial techniques. She knows the importance of having everyone informed about the different legal procedures. Apart from imparting knowledge, she also inspired them to have a compassionate heart for those who are facing injustice.
Since leaving the DA’s Office, Attorney Kirk has handled criminal cases as a defense attorney with successful results. She had proved that a client was wrongfully convicted and had him released from prison. In addition, she has had multiple cases dismissed by proving those as lacking sufficient evidence. She knows what prosecutors are looking for and what evidence they will use at trial. By using this skill, she can obtain reductions and have a high success rate in court.
