Outstanding, Conscientious Attorney
Of the many attorneys I have worked with both professionally and personally, Kim is by far the best. She is extremely knowledgeable, conscientious and resourceful. She does what is needed to protect and defend her clients, and she does it with great finesse. Importantly, she is genuine, kind and can be relied on to keep information confidential. She is a super star in my book!

I've been working with Kim on two separate issues and having her in my corner has relieved a tremendous amount of stress and uncertainty. I know I'm in great hands and I have my best interests being represented. Kim is professional, responsive and effective!

Wonderful to Work With!
The thing that I have enjoyed most about Kim is her care and consideration when working with her through my personal matters. She is thoughtful and has always been considerate of what I want through difficult times. I never felt pressured or that she had an underlying agenda. A fantastic lawyer and I highly recommend her.

Kim Baer is the best.
Kim is compassionate and caring. She returns calls. She will be there for you from start to finish. Big or small, if you have a case, she will represent you. Every time I have ever met with her she looks at me and responds to my questions. I have called her after hours and she has been there for me.

Best attorney in DSM!!
I've worked with Kim to set up my businesses and also on child support issues. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and I can tell she really cares about her clients. I would recommend her for any type of legal issue!

Awesome attorney!
I have worked with Kim on several occasions. Demonstrated a professional approach to my case, in a business suit we had she told me what i needed to hear not what we wanted to hear. Kim is confident, tough and knows her business.
