In late 2014, I was falsely accused of "internet stalking" by posting facts and my opinions on my private social media profile. It turned out my ex had a common acquaintance, masquerading as a friend, spying on my social media page.
I had no idea that simply posting facts, like sharing news articles online and my clearly stated opinions on the behaviors outlined in the articles, could result in potential legal action under the newly passed GA laws.
While it was a civil charge, these cases, in Georgia, are filed under Family Violence and can include measures such as temporary restraining orders. An unjust conviction could have resulted in my inability to renew my concealed weapons permit or even to shop in my local grocery store for fear of accidentally coming in close proximity of the accuser while simply getting a gallon of milk. They also threatened to restrict my freedom of speech and would show up in any future job interview background checks.
As a single father of three, I was concerned over these charges and the potential impact that they could have on both my children and myself.
Kim interviewed me, gathered needed evidence, such as the posts in question, and put my mind at rest that we would prevail.
When our day in court arrived, Kim quickly showed that I had not named anyone specifically in my posts and that my First Amendment Rights were protected.
Under tough cross examination, Kim got my accuser to admit under oath to the related behaviors I found objectionable (they had also been threatening $50,000 civil lawsuit for slander which "evaporated" as soon as she made the admission).
Kim cited the relevant case law, including at the time some higher court rulings that had just been handed down in cases similar to mine.
It took the judge about 2 minutes to declare that my accusers had "failed to meet their burden" and that all charges against me were "dismissed".
If you are looking for an experienced, thorough, and tough attorney to represent you in metro Atlanta, you have found her!
The only reason I only gave her "5 stars", is that they didn't have a HIGHER rating.

My 17yo son was charged with drug and alcohol related charges while on school campus. My first thought was to simply let my son stand before the judge without representation and accept responsibility for his actions. After deciding to hire an attorney with the hopes I could protect his future by getting him a first time offender status I looked up attorneys on the web. It was a crap shoot, any one of them would have taken his money and I had no idea who would be good for him.
Kim Frye was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier. During our first meeting Ms. Frye took a special interest in my son and recognized immediately that he needed help beyond the recent legal trouble he got into. She searched for the name of a counselor that she specifically wanted my son to see because he specialized in adolescent drug and alcohol abuse. That recommendation led us to put my son into an inpatient rehab facility for 60 days because my son was addicted to drugs and alcohol, something we could not see or accept prior to all this. Ms. Frye also advised my son of things he should accomplish after rehab such as community service. Once everything was completed and given my son's continuous attendance at AA meetings following rehab Ms. Frye was able to negotiate a dismissal of charges. I do not know of the legal challenges incurred but I do know the end results were exceptional.
I recommend her practice with enthusiasm.

Kim was thorough in her preparation, relentless in her defense of my case, brilliant in her courtroom strategies, sensitive to the needs of my family in this time of stress, and masterful in her presentation of my defense. The truth was heard, the jury verdict was "Not Guilty" on all charges, and my case was resolved satisfactorily. I give Kim my highest recommendation. She is a true and caring professional with an unmatched commitment to defending her clients. I have nothing but positive comments and accolades for Kim, and would recommend her, without reservation, to anyone in need of criminal defense. Quite simply, she is one of the very best in her profession.

Ms. Frye does not play around. She's very tough! You can count on her to do what she says. I felt like she truly had my back through the entire process. She's experienced, smart and serious about her profession. She is very well liked and respected in the court room. It was like watching bad-ass sunshine walk through those doors today.
She negotiated the best possible outcome for my case! I highly recommend her!

I received Ms. Frye's name from a co-worker. She highly recommended her and suggested I check with her on my son's situation.
Ms. Frye had a lot of expertise with clients that have a mental illness. She had previously worked with the local NAMI group, which let me know she cares and understands about those with mental illness. She had been involved with different levels of our situation prior and informed us of how the system usually works, since we had not been involved in legal issues before. It helped to know she "gets it" when it comes to mental illness, which the system does not.
She kept my son informed as each step progressed because he was the client, that is why I was not always up to date on every detail. I really appreciated her help and approach.

I was charged with 1st offense DUI along with numerous other moving violations. Although I was not intoxicated I declined the breathalyzer. Kim listened to my case and believed in me from the beginning. She set realistic expectations then delivered much more than she promised. This whole process took a total of 6 months, the most stressful, nerve-wracking time of my entire life. Because I put my trust in Kim the result of this nightmare could not have turned out better. She's highly professional, and is not satisfied until she gets the best result for her client.

I was facing a corporate scandal. From the first consultation I knew Kim was the lawyer for me, someone that knew the gravity of the situation and would fight for my life as vehemently as I would! Kim was able to intervene and handle the high paid corporate attorneys and eventually, dissuaded their interest in pursuing charges. Now I can move on with my life!

Two tickets that had gone into bench warrant status. These tickets were written 11 and 12 years ago, and the bench warrants had become attached to me, even though they were not my tickets. Kim helped me get these charges cleared up and dropped. She accomplished in three weeks what I had been unable to do in a year of trying to clear it up. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer.
