Welcome to The Kirlew Law Firm

The Kirlew Law Firm, PLLC is a boutique law firm that serves individuals and businesses throughout Miami and the greater South Florida area. We maintain a limited statewide and national practice for complex cases. What makes us different is our commitment to client communication, proper preparation, and zealous representation. We believe that our clients deserve individual attention and the full commitment of our staff. When you call our offices, your concerns will be addressed by an attorney, not a receptionist or call center. We pride ourselves on our commitment to client communication. We stay on top of your case from beginning to end and make sure we are communicating and collaborating with our clients along the way.
Our lawyers are specially trained, highly skilled and possess a unique depth of experience in our practice areas. Each case is approached in a systematic and comprehensive manner. With over 50 years of collective experience in and outside of the courtroom, our attorneys and support staff are among the best you will find anywhere. We know what it takes to win. Our primary objective is getting our clients a fair and just resolution to their legal disputes.

Our Approach

Listen, prepare, communicate and execute. Initially, upon being retained, our Firm sets up an intake where we meet with the client and their family to discuss the client’s objectives and get input on their version events. It’s important that before we do any substantive work on a case, we have an in-depth understanding of the client’s perspective of their case. We also want to know as much about our client as possible: their career objectives, their family needs, their economic situation, and their future plans.

Once we have a solid understanding of our clients, their families, businesses, and objectives, we sit down with our investigators, mitigation specialists, social workers and the other members of our team to develop a legal strategy that best fits the client’s needs.   In the Firm, we call this a “staffing”. This is when all the professionals that assist in preparing a case come together to review the facts of the case and the investigative results to offer their professional insights into how best to implement the client’s objectives. We do not employ a one size fits all approach to legal representation. Staffings are an ongoing process and it will frequently involve the client(s) coming in and meeting with our team to discuss objectives, investigative results, and strategy. We then execute the game plan according to the objectives and parameters discussed with the client and the other professionals involved.

We work for you!

Whether you are facing a federal investigation or indictment, a serious felony in criminal court or a contested dispute in family or civil court, our lawyers are working for you and your best interests. You, your family and business are what matters to us. We are a small firm that focuses on individualized representation. We do not have a one size fits all approach to litigation. Your case is handled in a manner that is unique to your specific circumstance and facts. We do not operate a conveyor belt system of case management where your case is handed off from receptionist to paralegal. We focus on the details to make sure we get the job done right the first time. Our goal is to get the job done as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.

  • review rating 5  Brian represented me and my children in a very complex case. Though our case was very sensitive in nature Brian and Heidi fought for us till the end and won our case. I have had bad attorney experience in the past. I have had an attorney out of FL who took our case and didn't do anything. My husband and I are out of state and couldn't afford being present in court back and forth between states to resolve the matter. Though we were financially strained, Brian and his team worked out a feasible arrangement with us so we could be able to afford his services and resolve our case. I have never met anyone so kind and passionate about their work than Brian and Heidi Kirlew. I will recommend them to anyone who is going through sensitive family matters and require attorney representation. Brian has fought hard for our children and made their dreams of being with their mother a reality. What I appreciated the most was the fact that Brian and Heidi took the time out of their busy schedule to contact me directly when needing to discuss my case. That meant a lot to me. That to me meant that the attorney cared and made me feel like I mattered and I'm not just another case or just another means of revenue. Once again Thank you Kirlew Law (Donia Servius)

  • review rating 5  If unfortunately you are in the need for a knowledgeable, credible, professional, sincere, efficient, competent, super defense attorney BRIAN KIRLEW is undisputable the ONE. Mr Kirlew communicates in a timely, effective manner and this is his norm. My son in law was arrested, facing a mandatory life in prison for an alleged first degree offense. Immediately after Mr Kirlew was retained he started working on the case. With skillful, strategic expertise he worked the case and after approximately 4 months he informed us that my son in law will be released in an additional 7 months. This was great news but within a few weeks thereafter he again informed us that he had much better news after skillfully negotiating with the state attorney, that reduced the original charge to an assault with a deadly weapon which had the case closed after 5 months and 5 years of probation. The cost associated with this case is a non factor, Mr Kirlew is worth every penny because my son in law freedom is PRICELESS. My son in law is now able to take care of himself and his family and live a productive FREE life. THANKS Brian for all you have done for us.
