Katie A. Kiihnl has dedicated her legal practice exclusively to the area of family law. After holding internships in various legal fields during law school, she found her calling in family law, which allows her the opportunity to maximize her unique skill set and personal experiences.

A child of divorced parents, Ms. Kiihnl found her passion in representing parties in child custody cases, including divorce, modifications of custody, third party custody cases, paternity and legitimation. Ms. Kiihnl has published articles on both the financial and child custody aspects of divorce litigation. While in law school, she was trained as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) to represent the needs of children in deprivation cases. Ms. Kiihnl also donates her services to the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation’s pro bono and “reduced fee” guardian ad litem programs to ensure that the interests of children in child custody cases are protected.
Outside of her legal practice, Ms. Kiihnl is involved in various divisions of the State Bar of Georgia. She is an active member of the State Bar of Georgia’s Family Law Section and the Young Lawyers Division. Ms. Kiihnl is a graduate of the State Bar of Georgia’s Leadership Academy, and is active in the YLD Family Law Committee, which sponsors the annual Supreme Cork Silent Auction and Wine Tasting to benefit Atlanta legal charities. She regularly participates in the State Bar of Georgia’s High School Mock Trial Program and the Georgia Moot Court Competition for law students. Ms. Kiihnl has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Atlanta Magazine’s Super Lawyers, and was selected to serve as the moderator for the “Ask the Experts” child custody roundtable at the State Bar’s annual Family Law Institute. While in law school, Ms. Kiihnl was honored to receive the Custer-Tuggle Award for Excellence in Family Law, as well as the CALI award for the highest grade in family law.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Katie and I worked together as co-chairs of the Young Lawyers Division Family Law Section. Katie was a great co-chair and her involvement has been very beneficial to our committee. Katie is also an excellent advocate who works hard to get the best results for her clients. She is a great attorney who is able to work with her opposition to reach reasonable resolutions. But she is also more than capable of taking her cases before the court for a hearing if that becomes necessary.
