Arkansas Injury Attorney
Kirby McDonald grew up in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Northern Arkansas. From a young age, he developed a passion for preserving God’s bounty and helping those around him. Growing up, he was active in his community, helping others repair their homes after storms, teaching vacation bible school at Valley Springs First Baptist church, cleaning up the public lands around his home, or volunteering at local basketball camps and youth leagues to help the next generation develop their athletic skills.
As Mr. McDonald matured into adulthood, his passion for helping others drew him to law. After obtaining his B.A. from the University of Arkansas, he attended the University of Arkansas School of Law. While in law school, Mr. McDonald fed his passion for helping people with any volunteer opportunity he could get his hands on. When he could take time away from his studies, he volunteered through Habitat for Humanity to write wills for single mothers and he represented undeserved communities for wage theft issues through the law school clinic. He also gave his time to the indigent population of Washington County by working in the criminal defense clinic.
Upon graduating from law school, Mr. McDonald was drawn to Rainwater, Holt and Sexton due to their commitment to serving people of the state of Arkansas. He now works in their Social Security department fighting for the benefits of hardworking Arkansas citizens. He is passionate about this line of work, because he knows he is doing his part to give back to the people of the state, who have worked to preserve this great state.
When Mr. McDonald isn’t zealously fighting for his clients, he enjoys giving back to his community, and taking in the spoils of our great state. Mr. McDonald is very active in the Hat Club of Little Rock, which raises funds for numerous charities in Pulaski County, such as the NICU Unit at Children’s Hospital and the Arkansas Food Bank. You can find Mr. McDonald on one of the numerous trails in the Ozarks, with his trusty hiking companion Gunther, a best friend and rescue dog he took in over eight years ago, or if the water is right, you will find him in the back of a canoe taking in the wonders of the numerous natural streams of Arkansas.
