Level Headed and Effective
Kim represented me in my recent divorce and I am so thankful for her measured and well considered representation. It is because of Kim's calm and professional nature that I was able to successfully navigate the very stressful and emotional legal process. Kim cared about me and my family, and she represented me very well. I had very specific goals surrounding custody and finances and Kim delivered on them for me. Kim put in long hours for me, was always responsive and available when I needed her, and she never made me feel like a crazy person- when I'm sure I was behaving like one! If you are looking for an attorney who is an effective communicator, is knowledgeable and pragmatic, Kim is the attorney for you.

Mr. Rozier
Ms. Keyes was instrumental in my custody case. I truly believe if I had another lawyer I wouldn't have gotten the outcome that I did. Even considering the state I'm from, being very liberal. I was in a custody case in which I needed to get full custody of my son, stop paying child support to his mother who was non existent in his life for over multiple years, and my son didn't even live with his mother. My son lived with me, yet I was still paying child support. on top of all that I needed to relocate to NH for my son's best interest and for work related issues. The court case lasted for over almost two years, and Kim was always quick to respond to my questions and even suggested how we should handle the case even when I thought we should handle it more aggressively. In the end, I was able to relocate with my son, received full custody, and had child support dropped, and now my son's mother has to pay me child support. Even to this day If I need any more advise on family probate I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Kim, and highly recommend her services to anyone who thinks their case is too troubling, or impossible. With Kim nothing is impossible. I can't say it enough, her services were instrumental in my case and the final decision. Thank you Kim

Amazing lawyer
Amazing professional and to the point really knows the court system and is a phenomenal writer. Kim was really able to convey what I needed to tell the judge and put it all together in a timely fashion. In addition to being a great lawyer she's also a wonderful person and is very personable and easy to talk to I would definitely hire Kim again.

Responsive, compassionate and knowledgeable.
Kim was exceptional to work with and I've referred anyone else from my area to her, as well. She is an expert in the field and always considered all angles to my issue to ensure we employed the best strategy possible. She made a difficult and contentious situation bearable!
