Michael Kirby was presented with an Outstanding Trial Lawyer award by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego (CASD). The award is given to San Diego attorneys who obtain a significant civil jury trial victory. To be considered for the award, attorneys must demonstrate ingenuity of counsel and conduct, as well as meet numerous other criteria.
Kirby received the award for his hard work in obtaining a verdict in excess of $20 million by jury trial. Mike was the lead trial attorney for multiple Plaintiffs in a four month jury trial involving a scheme by a San Diego investment adviser/real estate developer to defraud unsophisticated and elderly investor clients out of their life savings. The four month jury trial was focused on Plaintiff’s theories of fraud, aiding and abetting, and conspiracy against the financial planner/developer and a national title/escrow company.
