Protecting You and Your Family

From Our Broken Legal System

I am Adam O. Kirwan, J.D., LL.M., founder of The Kirwan Law Firm and author of the books, The Asset Protection Guide for Florida Physicians, and The Asset Protection Guide for Florida Residents.  Many if not most people who pursue a career in law do so out of a reverence for our legal system. I was not one of those people. Prior to entering law school, I had already personally experienced how our legal system was not at all a system justice. I have always been a pragmatist and decided that the best way to combat our system's inequities was to use legal means to help people avoid being ensnared in its gossamer webs of cost, delays, and ironically, injustices.

I also strongly believe that the most important things in life are family, friends, and personal growth. These ideals, especially justice and protecting family, are what the Kirwan Law Firm is all about. But this is only effectively accomplished through being meticulous in understanding each person's individual goals, objectives, situation, and risks, and then constructing a custom plan to ensure they are brought to fruition. This is what the Kirwan Law Firm is committed to do for each of its clients.

Protect What's Important

"The real question you have to ask yourself is "Do I trust our legal system to produce a just result enough of the time so that I would feel comfortable relying on it as my sole protection from a frivolous law suit?" If you can honestly answer "Yes" to this question, then you have no need for asset protection."
