After initially desiring to be a physicist and later having an interest in mathematics, Mr. KIrklin decided to turn his attention to the legal profession after he was embezzled and lost $7,000 during his time at Harvard. He realized that he enjoyed presenting the circumstantial evidence during the accusation of the perpetrator that nonetheless did not result in a prosecution.
According to Mr. Kirklin, his career highlight involved prosecuting and winning a trio of cases in 1984 involving illegal price fixing by banks in which an antitrust case and two fraud cases were filed and tried separately. The case got national coverage and he gave talks in New York and Washington about his experience in trying the case.
