Kirby Farris, the managing partner of the law firm Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP, has long been an avid believer in pursing justice for those injured and killed as the result of a personal injury. After first distinguishing himself as a long-term employee of the Norfolk Southern Railway Corporation, Mr. Farris saw first hand the devastating and life-altering impact of work place injuries to railroad workers during the eleven years he worked as a laborer in the Maintenance of Way department. For almost two decades, Mr. Farris has dedicated his practice to representing victims of personal injury and Federal Employers Liability Act, commonly known as FELA.

FELA is a federal law that protects and compensates railroad workers injured on the railroad. Mr. Farris is recognized as Designated FELA Counsel for the Transportation Communications Union (TCU). This designation is not only an honor for him but the realization of a longtime goal. After working for Norfolk Southern and representing injured workers on the railroad, he has also seen how properly handled claims for injured railroad workers can help them overcome the life altering impact of a workplace injury.

During his years in the railroad industry, Mr. Farris witnessed many times the fact that quality legal representation could seriously impact a fellow employee’s legal claim. He also saw, first-hand, how greatly an injured person’s quality of life could be affected by whether or not he or she was able to find justice through our legal system. Mr. Farris’ empathy for clients and their families continues to reinforce his determination to be ever diligent in representing their legal interests.

Mr. Farris received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Alabama and his law degree from Birmingham School of Law. After graduation from law school in 1994, he went on to serve at Birmingham School of Law as an associate professor of torts, civil procedure, and agency & partnership law, while also working to establish his legal practice. He was quickly rewarded with the trust and respect of his legal colleagues which allowed him to establish the law firm of Farris, Riley & Pitt in 1996, based largely on the referral of plaintiff cases from his legal peers throughout Alabama.

Mr. Farris focuses his practice on railroad litigation (FELA), FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), Personal Injury and wrongful death. He has been awarded numerous multi-million dollar settlements, and handles FLSA class actions all over the U.S. Mr. Farris is a member of the American, Alabama and Birmingham Bar Associations. He is also active in the Alabama Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice. Mr. Farris is a native of Lynn, Alabama and presently resides in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife Tammy and their three children.

In addition to practicing law, Mr. Farris along with his law partner, Ken Riley, underwrite a legal call in show, LawCall, which airs live every Sunday night on Fox 6 WBRC. LawCall features guest attorneys from all over the State and allows viewers across Birmingham the opportunity to have their legal questions answered live.
