Mr. Kirkland began his career at the Firm as an intern while he was still in law school and was fortunate to work directly for two of the Firm’s founding partners, David W. Edmonds and David H. Cole. Learning from their example, he gained invaluable experience and realized the importance of being dedicated to the best possible results for all clients – from early resolution of legal issues when possible to trying cases to jury verdict when necessary. He has spent his entire legal career with the Firm and is proud to carry on the legacy of the Edmonds Cole Law Firm.
