Committed, and makes you feel at ease
Kim was referred by a family member for my custody case, she never stops working and communicates the process throughout so you’re never feeling unaware or unsure. She made me feel like she was part of the family and ready to go. Anyone looking for an Attorney that has your back call Kim.

Unexpected results
Kim was hired to take on a very difficult criminal case. Thing were rocky with many obsticales and she never backed down or have up hope. Through hard work and dedication she was able to take a case where I was wrongfully accused and have 2 felonies where I was looking at 50 years apiece dropped though we had to take a plea deal to save a little cash it was worth it . 50-100 years dropped and recieved 18 months of probation for a completely different crime I deserved to be sentenced to. In my eyes she is just as good as OJ's attornies.

Compassionate and Hard Working
I have had Kim help me on many cases over the years from ouil to suspended license tickets. Kim is a terrific attorney, the judge has even told me how lucky I was to have such a hardworking attorney. Any issue I have brought to her has been handled with professionalism and courtesy. I would definitely recommend attorney Kotowski to anybody that needs a good experienced attorney.

Excellent Attorney!
Kim Kotowski is a woman of integrity, who has exceptional knowledge of the law. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make her an outstanding attorney who is capable, meticulous, and diligent. She is a straight-talker who will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to know. I highly recommend her, and feel fortunate to have hired the perfect attorney.

Excellent family law Attorney
I was not looking forward to going to court but Kim was very assertive & organized and I felt comfortable in the courtroom because of this. She made sure that all the important issues were covered in court and that I always knew what going on. Probably most important, Kim really seemed to care about me & my son and doing the very best for us.

Great Attorney
Attorney Kotowski represented us in multistate custody litigation. She has excellant trial skills and let nothing stand in her was of pursuing our goal. If anyone wants an attorney who is a fighter and gifted with the power of persuasion Attorney Kotowski should be your choice!

Kim and her staff were excellent through the whole process of helping me gain custody of my daughter. They were always helpful and knowledgeable. It was not easy going to the Court as a single Father, yet Kim and her staff made the process a positive experience and I now have my child with me. I would highly recommend Kim and her staff.

Attorney Kotowski helped me with my Divorce and other issues I had after my divorce was done. I have referred many people to her. She took the time to explain the law to me, and strongly defended my rights as a single parent. She is tough in Court, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest smart aggressive lawyer in their corner.

poor communication
Kim was hired for a criminal case in which she never kept me informed, never returned calls or even sent me court paperwork. I never knew where I stood with the case and could never get a straight answer, only her answering machine.

No communication
She failed to return calls and emails after she demanded and received a retainer. We had to terminate her services. She kept the full retained and never gave any explanation.

Kim Kotowski is just another crooked lawyer
Kim Kotowski was representing me in a divorce. I retained her almost two years ago and have spent about $10,000 on her. I have nothing to show for it. I still don't see my kids, I don't have my personal belongings. She continues to postpone dated, continuances, etc. Then when she feels she made enough off of you, she drops you as a client. You will have nothing to show for it. Your right where you started from before you hired her. She never keeps you informed during the case process, but when she wants money, she'll badger you day and night demanding money. I think $10,000 later I should have seen results. Kim Kotowski has absolutely no consience and does not care about your case.
