Ms. Shields handled my divorce in a very professional and caring manner. She was personable and was very knowledgeable about preparing and finalizing my divorce, she was very formal in the courtroom and my divorce was done in a timely manner. I was very pleased with her and would hire her again to handle any matters. I recommend Ms. Shields to anyone.

I met with Kimberly in 2011 for a consultation on a divorce. She was very professional in appearance and manner. After I explained my situation, she assured me she would do everything in her power to meet my needs and she did. She cared about my needs and emotionally supported me. She took away my fears by stating "Let me do the worrying, that's my job." Kim guided me through the process every step of the way. The results were impressive and resolved in a timely manner. It all came out in my favor. I kept the house and all of my belongings. This result was undoubtedly all because of Kimberly Shields' professional knowledge of Tennessee divorce law and her hard work. All I can say is I would highly recommend Attorney Kimberly Shields. Thanks again Kimberly." - Lisa M.

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.
