Kevin Quirk and his wife Lori live on Mabry Lane in Historic Brookhaven, where they have been raising their 3 children for the past 19 years. Kevin is a candidate for Brookhaven City Council from District 3.
Kevin has lived in Atlanta since 1977. He graduated from Riverwood High School in Sandy Springs in 1980. He then attended the University of Notre Dame, graduating in 1984. After graduation, Kevin returned to Atlanta and went to work for Georgia Federal Bank, initially as an associate in the management training program and subsequently as a licensed investment representative. In 1986, Kevin left Georgia Federal Bank to continue his education, enrolling in law school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Kevin was a member of the North Carolina Law Review during his second year in law school and was a teaching assistant during his third year. During the summers, he worked as a summer associate at law firms in Pittsburgh and Chicago.
After graduating from law school in 1989, Kevin was hired into the honors program at the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., where he served as a trial attorney in the Antitrust Division until early 1992. In the spring of 1992, Kevin returned home to Atlanta to join King & Spalding as an associate attorney on the firm’s special matters team. In 1994, he joined his 3 brothers at Quirk & Quirk and has been a partner at Quirk & Quirk ever since, representing corporate and individual clients in a variety of legal matters. Kevin has represented clients in lawsuits in numerous municipal, state, and superior courts throughout Georgia, as well as in the Court of Appeals of Georgia and the Supreme Court of Georgia, and his firm has grown to 16 attorneys.
Kevin and Lori moved onto Mabry Lane in Historic Brookhaven in the fall of 1993 and have lived on Mabry Lane ever since. They joined Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church and School community, where Kevin has served as a member of the finance committee, a children’s liturgy leader, and a youth basketball coach and where Lori has served as a member of the school advisory board and also as a children’s liturgy leader.
Kevin also served for 3 years as a board member for the Historic Brookhaven Neighborhood Association. During his time on the Neighborhood Association board, the neighborhood successfully opposed a zoning variance that would have allowed for the construction of 30 residences where 4 formerly had stood. This experience enabled Kevin to appear before and work with members of the DeKalb County Commission. Kevin also worked with fellow neighbors and with DeKalb County officials to have speed tables approved and installed on a portion of Mabry Road that previously had been plagued by high speeds and auto accidents.
If selected by the residents of District 3, Kevin looks forward to serving District 3 and the City of Brookhaven as a member of the City Council.
