KIRC EMERSON

attorney

Kirc relishes what many consider some of the more tedious aspects of legal practice—detailed discovery analysis coupled with strategic legal work. With a profound love of math and science, he is devoted to unearthing and distilling the data on which the outcome of a case often rests. Whatever is buried in mountains of electronic data,
scientific studies, or inscrutable piles of documents, Kirc will find it. His enthusiasm stems from the conviction that every client deserves clarity, no matter how nuanced or technical the facts of their situation may be.

 

In addition to finding fun where many see drudgery, Kirc hates to lose an argument. He has combined his insatiable appetite for knowledge with this inherent trait into a
tremendous asset as a litigator who relentlessly pursues the winning strategy in or out of the courtroom. Kirc is not only analytical, but personable. His compassion and intellectual curiosity drive his knowledge of the law. He is happiest being the warrior, defending clients made vulnerable by harm, abuse, and fraud.
