Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I first got to know Kim when I was a prosecutor and she was a public defender in Alexandria. We had many, many serious cases against each other. Trying cases against Kim, I quickly learned that she was a force of nature. Kim is simply one of the toughest, smartest, and most dedicated criminal defense attorneys I have ever known. She now brings that same ferocity, passion, expertise, and savvy to representing her clients in private practice, with outstanding success."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ms. Stover is a fearless, superb criminal trial lawyer. Years ago, I remember watching her destroy a prosecutor at trial. She is my type of lawyer, a courthouse combatant. You cannot go wrong if you hire her."
