Absolutely worth your investment
Kim Jinks provided me with excellent legal services over a 3 year period and counting. I went through an extremely high conflict divorce, which came with its fair share of emotional roller coasters making a straight-shooting lawyer absolutely necessary to keep me from falling off the deep end. This is the type of lawyer you see in the movies where you actually put your full trust in your lawyer, and it was absolutely worth it. I was in court at least eight times. Custody issues with multiple children, ex in-law drama, you name it. Kim made herself available to me for whatever I needed. I shopped around for lawyers (paying all of them a consultation fee) and it was very clear to me that I would have a good working relationship with the Jinks Law Firm. I watched my ex go through five lawyers while mine was highly intelligent, consistent, and persistent (my ex’s clearly were none of those things). She is 100% honest (brutally, sometimes) and I cannot imagine where my life would be right now had I not hired her at the start of my divorce. I landed on my feet and I truly attribute most of that to the investment I made in Kim. High-quality & high-class. I couldn’t be more grateful!

Adaptive, sympathetic and assertive
Ms. Jinks was phenomenal with handling my case. When ever we were building any file, she would listen and let me speak to ensure the message was conveyed clearly to the court. I feel like my case was a little different than most but Ms. Jinks did whatever she had to, to make sure I was taken care of. Everything that I was looking to have resolved in my case was handled. When in hearings, Ms. Jinks made sure that my voice was heard and did not let anyone step on me. She is both sympathetic and assertive. I appreciate everything Ms. Jinks did for me and my family and will absolutely hire her again if need be. Thank you, Kim!

Great and too the Point
She works well with her clients to minimize fees. Just as an example, I was just over $12,000 and my Ex-wife was almost $45,000. She is truthful and upfront and stops you from arguing meaningless points, but will fight hard for things that you win and will. I couldn't have asked for someone better and my team won the race - No doubt about it

Great Experience, Excellent Service
I hired Kimberly to represent me in my divorce. As most, the divorce process can be ugly and emotional. Kimberly was able to help me manage through the tough times and act as my advocate and advisor at the highest level of professionalism, competence, support and understanding. I highly recommend her for marital issues and divorce representation.

Painless as possible
Used Ms Jinks during my divorce. As most dad's, I was concerned about seeing my children as much as possible. With a negotiated settlement, Ms Jinks was able to provide me with a settlement that was acceptable for both me and my ex.

Knowledgeable, skilled, compassionate, and always professional!
Represented me in a complex, high conflict divorce involving child custody issues, domestic violence, support (child and spousal), and the enforcement of a contested prenuptial agreement. Always available to honestly answer questions and squelch concerns. (I wasn't looking for an attorney that would simply tell me what I wanted to hear. I wanted "reality".) She was aggressive in the courtroom when it mattered most! Although I hope to never need a Family Law attorney again, if I do, it will be The Jinks Law Firm that I contact!

Great lawyer!
I hired Kim to represent me in my alimony modification case. She was very attentive and understood all aspects of my case. Most importantly we ended up resolving our issue in mediation which is something I never thought could have happened! Kim was an excellent lawyer and I'll definitely use her again if something else arises.

Great Attorney/Reasonable rates/Knows her stuff and isn't afraid to fight for you.
I have nothing but great things to say, Kim was fantastic to work with. She CARES about her clients, is extremely knowledgeable in her field and gets the job done. When my case was over I felt like I had made a new friend, extremely compassionate and prompt in dealing with my needs and concerns. Fees were reasonable and up front. I would use her again in a heart beat (hopefully I won't ever need to) and would definitely refer a friend. Excellent Attorney.

The nervous dad
For years I periodically consulted with lawyers about my situation. I never had a confident feeling till meeting with Ms Jinks . I needed to remove my child from a toxic and abusive situation and she was instrumental in this . She is extremely professional and won my child her freedom and piece of mind . I could not have done it without her . I recommend Ms. Jinks without hesitation to anyone who asks . She shows strength as well as compassion which I feel are all important in Family Law . Thank you for everything Kim . You gave me strength and confidence throughout my case . You sugar-coated nothing and gave it to me straight and in the end you were the perfect advocate for my child and I , through many frustrating moments as you recall. Thank you.

Totally Satisfied
Kimberly A Jinks was recommended to me by a friend and fellow attorney to handle my divorce. She was quick to respond to all my questions as well as very knowledgeable in her field. I would highly recommend using her as I was totally satisfied.

Not useful and very money minded
I only had one consultation with her. She charged $300 for an hour and mostly she was more concerned how I was able to going to pay her retainer, she was very specific to tell me I have to pay her $5000. Eventually I did consult another lawyer who gave me free advise, and answered all my questions patiently for more than an hour. I have no idea how she has so many good reviews.
