Kimberly Mae Surratt

About me

Kimberly M. Surratt, Esq. is a graduate of the University of Nevada and the Golden Gate University, School of Law. She is a member of the Washoe County Bar Association, State Bar of California and State Bar of Nevada. She is also a founding member of Collaborative Professionals of Nevada, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, Nevada Justice Association and American Society of Reproductive Medicine.

Ms. Surratt is a highly respected attorney in the Northern Nevada community and her interests are in the areas of amicable divorce with integrity through alternative dispute resolution and family planning. Ms. Surratt opened Surratt Law Practice, PC to assist people at their most difficult times in life. Despite Ms. Surratt's skills in mediation and collaborative practice, Ms. Surratt's distinct talents can be used in litigation, as well as mediation and collaborative practice. Ms. Surratt's goal is litigation with integrity and exploring options for out-of-court handling of family law matters at all opportunities. Ms. Surratt has learned that when her client's are informed and invloved in the process of their conflict that they make better decisoins for themselves and their children than a judge or lawyer would.

Ms. Surratt also does a significant amount of work in family formation law, including surrogacy, egg donations, guardianships, adoptions and gestational carrier law. Family formation is an area of law that requires patience and skills of a mediation trained professional to assist people so that their family formation matters do not become conflicts.

  • Jason M. Frierson

    I first met Kim when she was advocating for family law matters and I was serving in the Legislature. She was so passionate and committed to her cause that I thought of how wonderful it would be to work for such an attorney. She modernized Nevada law with respect to gender neutrality and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) but drafting legislation that was signed by the Governor. It couldn't have been any more apparent that I needed to work for this attorney! The experience I am gaining with ART cases as well as divorces, custody, termination of parental rights cases and estate planning has been invaluable and her commitment to community causes makes our office a rare gem in the legal community.
