John Edwards, David Kirby, Bill Bystrynski Selected to 2019 Super Lawyers List
Edwards Kirby, LLP Partners John Edwards, David F. Kirby, and Bill Bystrynski have each been named to the 2019 North Carolina Super Lawyers list! Considered one of the most recognizable publications in the legal industry, and a trusted resource for legal consumers, Super Lawyers distinguishes attorneys from each state who have earned the highest esteem from colleagues, and the highest degree of professional achievement.
John, David, and Bill are among the most respected and talented trial attorneys in the nation, having earned recognition from numerous organizations, and notable results in complex and high-profile cases throughout their careers. Their leadership and tireless efforts have earned our firm the trust of victims and families across the state, as well as the respect of peers and fellow practitioners who turn to us to collaborate on claims requiring the resources and trial experience for which we’ve become known.
- John Edwards – Founding Partner John Edwards was recognized in the latest edition of Super Lawyers for his work in Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury. A member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, a group of the nation’s top 100 trial attorneys, John has dedicated his professional and personal life to advocacy, justice, and the fight to ensure equal opportunity under the law. From his political service as a former U.S. Senator, Vice-Presidential Nominee, and Democratic Presidential candidate to his long-standing career as an acclaimed trial attorney, John has been implacably devoted to fighting for the injured, the wronged, and the everyday individual whose rights and equal access to the law are continually threatened by corporate powers, special interests, and the prioritization of profits over people.
- David F. Kirby – Also a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, Founding Partner David Kirby has been named to the prestigious list of Super Lawyers each year since 2006. In 2019, he was again selected for inclusion in the areas of Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, and Product Liability. Over his more than 25 years in practice, David has helped clients prevail in a range of claims, earning record-setting verdicts and results profiled in the national media, and praised throughout the local and legal communities. In addition to fighting for clients in the courtroom, David is also an active lecturer, guest speaker, and active member of various advocacy groups and non-profits, with a particular focus on supporting children with special needs.
- Bill Bystrynski – Partner Bill Bystrynski, selected for inclusion in the areas of Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, and Product Liability, has been named to the North Carolina Super Lawyers list every year since the peer-review service’s distinction was established. In addition to being named among the state’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the American Association for Justice, Bill has also earned a reputation for handling complex claims with the highest of stakes and in the highest of courts. That includes two notable U.S. Supreme Court cases, including one which resulted in a 2013 ruling in which Supreme Court Justices declared North Carolina’s Medicare law unconsunstitutional. That decision had major implications for seriously injured victims nationwide, allowing them to retain more of the settlements they’re paid by individuals and entities responsible for causing them harm and losses. He is actively involved in Legal Aid, community, and charitable foundations.
