Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Kim is a highly capable, nuanced, resourceful, solutions-oriented attorney. I was lucky to work as collaborative counsel (across the table) with Kim on several family law matters during the years that she was practicing in Asheville, NC. In addition, we trained lawyers together for several years, teaching them the collaborative process. She remains a trusted friend and mentor to me. Kim now connects lawyers around the world, improving their lives and helping those of us in the legal profession embrace our power to improve the world through our work. Kim always brings the energy of four people to any project she takes on. It is my honor to recommend her without reservation.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Throughout her legal career, Kim has taken bold leadership initiative as a peacemaking lawyer long before it was fashionable. Truth be told, Kim was probably key in ushering in the fashion with her Renaissance Lawyer vision, ground-breaking Cutting Edge Law website for collaborating lawyers world-wide, leadership roles at International Academy for Collaborative Professionals, and Healers of Conflicts law practice. I have had the pleasure to be mentored by Kim, to work on opposite "sides" from Kim in collaborative family law cases, and and to work alongside Kim to teach Collaborative Law educational seminars for lawyers, law students, therapists and financial professionals. In all instances, Kim has been resourceful, intuitive, and tenaciously committed to helping clients and attorneys discover routes to resolving issues by mutual agreement. I endorse Kim without reservation.
