Kristin Renea Brown

About me

I became an attorney as a "second career," though it was always a first love and a goal for me.  I practice strictly criminal defense because that is where my passion lies.  I have a strong faith that I am where I am because that is where I am supposed to be.  


Things about me outside of the practice of law: 


My hobbies include traveling, learning, reading, running, weight-training, yoga and pilates, wine, and spending time with family and friends.

  • Scott Russell Shinn

    I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Kristin Brown. I had the opportunity to spend three rather intense weeks with her and our classmates during the Trial Lawyers College and was completely impressed with her knowledge and comfort in trial settings. She combines poise and passion into an almost-unbeatable package. If you are considering retaining Kristin - don't wait! She's the real deal and you won't be disappointed in her representation.
