Kimberly really cares about her clients. She represented me on a DWI case and she really knows her stuff. She was right on everything she told me to expect and made the nightmare a lot easier. She is so reasonable and will really listen. I strongly recomend her.

Ms. Lerner handled my situation with such compassion. She is so smart and well respected in the courts. She was able to show the DA the situation without going to trial and my case was dismissed. She does not give up.

Kim Lerner is an exceptional attorney who is truly passionate in her quest to help each and every client. Choosing a criminal defense attorney is a challenging task because many will tell you how great they are, but you should be skeptical of such self promotion. I have been practicing law for over 20 years in both state and federal court and have represented clients throughout the country and I can unequivocally state, without hesitation, that Kim Lerner is among the best there is. She cares. She works hard. She is intelligent and has great instincts. Rest assured that in a business where second place is last, that you can trust Kim Lerner to get you the best outcome possible.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Kim and I worked side by side as prosecutors in the district attorney's office where I witnessed first hand her dedication and commitment to her cases. She has a tremendous amount of experience in criminal law and I'd highly recommend her to handle any criminal matter.
