  • Charles Wesley Fowler

    Kim has an extensive medical malpractice background. She has experience defending those claims and has been a nurse for 15 years. That's hard to find in a lawyer. It makes her uniquely qualified to evaluate and handle these complex matters.

    I endorse this lawyer. Kim has all the abilities needed to make a great lawyer - she knows the law extremely well; she is a great communicator and can present a case well in court; she is a strong advocate for her clients, and she is exceedingly ethical. I would recommend her to anyone.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censured
    issued in TN, 2016

    updated

    When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
