This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Fair, impartial family mediation
Kim Torres came highly recommended to me. She is well respected in the legal community for good reason. Not only did she make efficient use of our time, she also offered realistic, no-nonsense guidance. She handled our case with compassion and professionalism. No negotiated outcome is ideal, but mediator Kim Torres is probably your best chance of settling out of court and getting on with your life.

Best Meditation Ever
Kim was very knowledgeable and put me at ease with my process of the whole divorce. Her responsive time is excellent especially through email since I work all the time. I would definately recommend her and use her services again.

Mediation Attorney | Jan 31
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Kim is the President of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the Florida Bar, with over twenty years of experience and an excellent mediator. As such, she is highly skilled and respected in this community. I had the privilege of observing her mediate several times. She works well with people and takes the time to listen, focus the parties and do the job right. I was actually surprised to learn that her rates are much more affordable than most mediators with her level of expertise and experience. I highly recommend Kim."
Family Attorney | Nov 21
