"Your Advocate in Justice, Excellence, and Results."
I highly recommend Mr. Scott Kimberly to anyone in need of exceptional legal representation, especially regarding child custody matters. He has been an invaluable asset in championing my son's custody rights. His adeptness in cross-examination, direct approach, and unwavering work ethic have played a pivotal role in addressing the injustices my son encountered within the legal system. Mr. Kimberly is not only dedicated to securing favorable outcomes for his clients but also prioritizes ethical practices and “refrains from exploiting them financially.” His commitment to his clients' welfare extends beyond legal representation; as a father himself, he genuinely advocates for the best interests of the children involved. If you're in search of a lawyer who will fervently uphold fathers' rights and relentlessly pursue justice, Mr. Kimberly is unquestionably the right choice. I am deeply grateful for his expertise, dedication, and unwavering support throughout this painful and challenging journey for our son, grandchildren and extended family.

The best lawyer in Murfreesboro
I was referred to Scott from a mutual friend that we share. In the time of beginning the process of divorcing it was clear that I need representation and help to ensure I received what was fair to me under the law. When I first met him he made sure to come up, introduce himself and say "We are going to make sure you are taken care of." Any question I had about documentation, process, language was answered and explained while going through the 5 month process to reach the finish line. If you want the best, look no further.

Honest, Open-minded, & Organized
When meeting with Scott Kimberly, he listened to our situation and provided honest feedback (what we needed to hear) without judgment. He asked poignant questions that caused us to think deeply about our situation and ways to remediate it. His team was extremely organized contacting us throughout the experience and listing specific things we needed to complete within a timeframe. This helped us stay calm and feel a sense of control throughout the process. We highly recommend Scott Kimberly and his team if you find yourself in need of legal counsel and representation.

Great lawyer, better guy
Scott and his entire office have been nothing but wonderful from the very beginning of this process. Hiring a lawyer is intimidating, and stressful due to the circumstance, but Scott was the absolute best. Everyone at the office was always kind and welcoming, and I never felt rushed about. Would highly recommend. (Also, if Scott is your lawyer, you will win)

Had a need to hire a Family Law Attorney for guidance to resolve of a custody matter. Scott Kimberly was contacted based on his reputation to get things done. He took the time to educate me on the law in regards to the issues. He advised the steps needed to follow, the estimated cost to properly address the issues, and estimated time. Resolved to satisfaction for all involved. Excellent Service.

Great experience
After reaching out to several lawyers, Scott Kimberly was the most helpful. I needed a divorce filed quickly and their law office helped and started my case immediately. I had questions and concerns daily and they took my calls and answered my emails quickly. Even with COVID-19 slowing the process, they always stayed on top of each part of the process and made sure everything was done at an appropriate time without delay. They showed compassion for my needs and I highly recommend them.

Divorce
I won the free Valentine's day divorce for 2019. Scott couldn't decide between me and another candidate, so he decided to work for us both. Not only was he professional, but also prompt to answer any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend him.

The Right Decision
Upon first calling Scott's office, and explaining the charges brought against me; Scott assured me he would fight on my behalf since I was out of state. Scott was able to move my court date to a later date, so I had time to get my ducks in a row to fly back down to Tennessee. He worked with me and the judge and was able to successfully dismiss my case in exchange for community service hours. I did not have any priors to this incident and am glad Scott could keep my record as such.

Scott is a great lawyer! He got my charge retired in Rutherford County General Sessions... He has a good relationship with the DA’s Office and knows how to negotiate. I was told by other attorneys that evidence doesn’t get Supeoned in General Sessions. Scott and his staff took care of business and got the job done.. Highly Recommend!!!
