Kirby-2013_200Originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, I graduated from Union University with a Bachelor of Science degree.  I am married to Hugh Kirby, and we have two children, Josh, a graduate of Florida State University and Christa, a graduate of University of Georgia and Talbot Theological Seminary.  I received my Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the University of Tennessee. Soon after graduating from law school, I was admitted to the State Bar of Florida.  I was the first female Assistant Police Legal Advisor in Orlando, Florida and was later appointed by the Mayor of Orlando as City Prosecutor.  Upon moving to Texas, I practiced insurance defense law.  In 1983, my family moved to Georgia when my husband accepted a ministerial position with New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville where he continues to serve.
I have practiced in the real estate and estate areas of practice since coming to Georgia, with an emphasis since 1991 in the area of wills and trusts, estate planning and administration.   In 2006, the firm of Kirby Palmer Farrell was formed, which continues to serve the estate planning needs of this area.  I practice in an area that is my passion – assisting others in making their estate plan, listening to each person’s story and drafting documents based on those stories.
I am active in my church and in my community.  I am a two-time breast cancer survivor and am, hopefully, learning to live each day fully.  The ladies I practice with at FLG make this easy.  They are not only my law partners, but my friends.
I contribute articles regarding estate planning to the Fayette Woman magazine, as well as frequently speak at the Fayette Senior Services Center and many local businesses and churches.
