Kimberly attended Bishop Verot High School and was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2006, after attending Florida State University and Florida Gulf Coast University, graduating cum laude with a B.S. in Forensic Psychology. Honors included Moot Court Honor Society, Phi Alpha Delta, the Family Law Clinic and the Order of the Barristers Award. After graduating from Nova Southeastern University School of Law, she began her practice in insurance defense and criminal law. As a prosecutor, Kimberly gained extensive trial experience and became the court chief of the juvenile division and head of the special victims unit, prosecuting cases involving human trafficking, homicide, animal abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, injunctions and sexual assaults. Some of these were high profile cases that received notice in local newspapers.

Kimberly began focusing on the needs of families and abused children, both as a family law attorney and counsel for the Guardian ad Litem Program. She became a Certified Florida Supreme Court Family Law Mediator and began conducting investigations as a private, court appointed Guardian ad Litem for children in family law cases.

Her legal career has focused on helping children and families, through collaboration with mediators, attorneys, therapists, forensic accountants, physicians, educators and tutors, addiction specialists, the Department of Children and Families, law enforcement, the Children's Advocacy Center, case managers and other governmental agencies.

Kimberly has been involved in organizations such as Calusa Inns of Court, the Association of Family Law Professionals, the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association, the Lee County and Hendry-Glades Bar Association, the Bishop Verot Legal Society and the Florida Prosecuting Attorney Association. When not working with families, Kimberly can be found backpacking overseas, working out or spending time with friends and family.

Amazing Attorney Who Truly Cares
Ms. Erwin is one of the best. After consulting many Attorneys to handle a family matter-I found Ms. Erwin. Not only did she actually care about what I was going through, she helped me tremendously. I am forever in her debt. If you’re looking for an Attorney that truly cares about you and what you’re going through -then Ms. Erwin is the Attorney that you need to hire.

Free consultation experience
This morning I called her office looking for a free consultation. I was able to be put on the agenda the same day and experience a pleasant experience. Kimberly, more than just being an attorney, she showed to hold strong moral values. She was kind enough to lead me in the right direction and provided highly important information. If only I could afford her valuable time and professionalism for her to fight for what is right and not for who believes to be right! God bless you Kimberly and flourish your career!
