About Thomas A. Kirby

“I was born in Owosso, Michigan in 1949, the second of 11 children, Tom graduated from St. Paul High School in 1968. Served as an Electronics Technician in the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1975. Went to school on the GI Bill and earned: Associate’s Degree in Social Science from San Diego City College in 1977; Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from San Diego State University in 1979; and, a Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1982.

Thankfully, I passed the California Bar Exam the one time that I took it (1982) and have practiced law ever since: Law Office of Leslie E. Collins, III from 1982 to 1984 (General Civil Law); Law Office of James D. Scott from 1984 to 1986 (Family Law and Personal Injury); Scott and Wentz from 1986 to 1988 (Family Law, Personal Injury and Real Estate); Hendrix and Associates from 1988 to 1998 (General Civil Law); Group Legal Services from 1998 to 2004; and, Law Office of Scott Family Law (Family Law) from 2005 to the present time.

I am a member of the American Legion, the Sierra Club, AARP and Citizen’s United for Separation of Church and State.

Travel is my passion. Once a year I take a vacation to Europe and have been there about 19 times. Including 4 trips to Asia, I have visited about 35 countries. As soon as I return from my annual trip, I begin to plan my next one and read about that destination.”
