I retained Kim for my divorce on a recommendation of a friend. Kim was a great advocate, with sound advice and a champion for myself and my children. My divorce, like many, had some challenges and Kim was able to address them and keep the process moving forward. She was always professional offering great advice. Divorce is never easy and knowing that Kim truly had my back made it less stressful.

I have worked with Kim on several Collaborative Divorce cases as a financial neutral. Kim’s handling of clients is compassionate and respectful. Kim is very effective at helping clients find their voice so that they are empowered to make decisions and take an active role in shaping their financial and parenting future. This process enables the “no longer intact family” to continue to have an on-going relationship so that each of them could continue to co parent and be comfortable in each other’s presence during family milestones. Had this gone to litigation, the process would have continued for years and been destructive to the family. Kim’s understanding of the Collaborative process has helped her clients reach settlements that were tailored to meet their needs for future independence.

Kim is an outstanding advocate for her clients. She has an extraordinary comprehension of both the legal and personal issues her clients are faced with. She is kind and compassionate when addressing emotionally charged issues for her clients and zealously communicates to the Court and adversaries on their behalves.
