 Judge Albert D. Kirby, Jr. grew up in Sampson County on his family's farm. The farm was diversified, which included pork (raised them on the ground), tobacco, soy beans, produce, among other things.  He farmed through his school years and continued farming part-time during college and law school and even after he began practicing law.  He graduated from Clinton High School and Wake Forest University and went on to Campbell University School of Law.  After being admitted to the bar, he served as Assistant District Attorney in Cumberland/ Hoke (Prosecutorial District 12) and Pitt (Prosecutorial District 3).  His work in these positions was chiefly as a prosecuting attorney, working to enforce the laws in criminal court.  While in Pitt county, he joined the adjunct faculty at East Carolina University, teaching criminal law courses. After working as an adjunct, Judge Kirby became a full time professor of criminal justice.

He was appointed as Senior Resident Superior Court Judge (District 4) and immediately impaneled a series of meetings with Sheriff's offices and local police chiefs to listen to their concerns and identify and set measures to improve the safety of law enforcement officers and the general public; during his time on the court, he has worked to support the work of the law enforcement officials and the courts and promote public safety.
