Bio: Kirby McDonald was born and raised in Boone County. He is a proud graduate of Valley Springs. Kirby attended the University of Arkansas for his undergraduate, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in Political Science. Upon completion of his undergraduate, Kirby enrolled in the University of Arkansas School of Law.
While in law school, Kirby clerked for Jeff Slaton, P.A., and gained insightful knowledge running a general practice law office, with an emphasis on a client-driven practice. Additionally, Kirby participated in several legal clinics, in which he was a special rule 1.5 certified attorney, during his time at the University of Arkansas School of Law. He participated in the Civil Clinic where he represented low-income clients in wage theft matters, the Criminal Defense Clinic, where he gained experience representing underserved clients charged with misdemeanors, and he also worked in the Wills Clinic, where he paired up with habitat for humanity to assist in drafting estate documents for single mothers.
Upon completing law school, Kirby passed the bar, and began working for a law firm in Little Rock. While in Little Rock, Kirby’s legal focus was Social Security Disability, where he represented and fought for clients to be awarded the disability benefits, they earned during their working career. Kirby also represented wrongfully injured clients, whether they were injured in a car wreck, slip and fall, dog bite, or any other form of negligent injury, Kirby was in their corner to make sure they were given the time they needed to heal, and a fair outcome once their claim wrapped up.
After three years of living and working in Little Rock, Kirby came back home. He joined the winning team of Sprott, Golden, and Bardwell in October of 2019. He will be working out of their Fayetteville office, but will be serving clients all over North Arkansas.
When Kirby isn’t at work, you can find him enjoying the wonderful bounty of the Ozarks. Whether it be hunting and fishing with his family, canoeing with his wonderful wife, or hiking with his trusty companion Gunther (the dog), he takes every chance he can get to spend time in the marvelous outdoors we are blessed with here in the Ozarks.
