Kimberly C. Brown earned her law degree from the Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, graduating in the top one-third of her class, after working as a nuclear process support chemist at the former named Westinghouse Savannah River Site.  She is licensed to practice law in the State of Alabama and is the Owner/Managing Partner of the Kimberly C. Brown Law Firm, LLC. 


Kim is known for being professional, direct and articulate.  She is sought by clients from all walks of life for her knowledge, advocacy skills, and client-focused results.  In 2016, Attorney Brown was nationally recognized as being one of the “Top 10 Under 40” by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys.




A native of Alexandria, Louisiana, Attorney Brown has an unyielding commitment to advocating for people and standing for what is right.  This passion for championing the rights of others is what sparked her transition from science to law.  Her career as a chemist and now an attorney has sharpened her research and analytical skills and has prepared her to represent you!


 Kim is capable to serve in various capacities including defending persons accused of commitming crimes, representing families and mentally ill persons in the involuntary commitment process, representing plaintiffs and defendants in all types of family law cases and advocating for the best interest of children as a guardian ad litem.


Outside of the courtroom, Attorney Brown enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, working out, and traveling.

Very Informative
I appreciate Kim, though she wasn't able to take my case, she referred me to another lawyer that could. She listened to my concerns and was very helpful in general. She is very knowledgeable about the law.

Authentic Legal Counselor
Attorney Brown is one of the most authentic attorneys I have ever met. She is considerate of one's personal feelings. However, she does not allow that to interfere with providing the best, unbiased legal counsel. When I approached Kim regarding my situation, I was extremely nervous due to my fear of the unknown. She thoroughly presented all available options and legal implications for each option. I was able to make an informed decision regarding my situation. I have no doubt that Attorney Brown will aggressively work for my best interest while maintaining her professional integrity.

A trusted resource!
Kim was extremely proficient and knowledgable during my case. There was never a doubt in my mind about her ability to aggressively represent my best interest. I was at ease with her ability to explain all legal implications. Ultimately, I felt assured in knowing that she would provide me with relevant and timely information in a manner that would allow me to comfortably make informed decisions regarding my situation.

Beyond my expectations!
Attorney Brown is one of the best attorneys my husband and I have encountered. My biggest pet peeve with the judicial system is the lack of communication and punctuality. This was definitely not the case with Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Brown was very informative, kind and unlike some attorneys she was very concerned. When our case was presented we knew what expect good or bad. We never had that unsure feeling.

Great lawyer for a first time client!
Attorney Brown was professional and very knowledgeable about my concerns. This was my first time needing the assistance of an attorney and I could not have chosen a better attorney for the job. Her direct knowledge base of gender bias, unequal pay for women and prejudice in the athletic industry gave her a great advantage with my case. Her even temperament gives you the confidence that she will remain calm and just get the job done. I would recommend Attorney Brown for any case at any level!

Exceeded expectations
When I needed to enlist the services of Attorney Brown for my divorce I was not sure what the process was or what to expect. She did an excellent job explaining my options after taking the time to throughly listen to all the details of my case. Through each step of the case she was very compassionate of my feelings and made sure I understood everything aspect. My divorce was contested and she did an great job representing me as well as questioning my ex spouse in the courtroom. The results of my divorce turned out better than expected for me and I could not have been more pleased. So if you're looking for an attorney more concerned about helping you and getting you the best results I highly recommend her.

A Trusted Excellent Choice
Working with Kimberly Brown was a great experience. She was professional but more importantly, she listened to my concerns and needs in a way that proved that she cared about me and not just winning a case. I was very pleased with having her as my lawyer.

Stay Far Away!
Kept trying to push me in a direction I clearly told her upfront that I didn't want to go. Sloppy work. Became unresponsive and very difficult to get hold of. Eventually, let her go.

Each time I was always amazed and very proud of her analytical objectivity, thorough understanding and accurate interpretation of the law, ability to adapt in difficult situations, and her attention to detail. I believe it is because of these attributes she has earned a reputation in the Madison County legal community for providing quality and ethical representation for her clients and working with opposing counsel fairly and professionally.
