If you are looking to lessen the emotional and financial strain that often accompanies transitions in your marriage and family – such as divorce, separation or child custody disputes – consider collaborative law or mediation.

These alternatives to traditional litigation are non-adversarial, cost-effective, client-controlled and seek to preserve the dignity and emotional well-being of all.

My legal experience and training in relationships, problem-solving and negotiation help me represent and guide clients to arrive at the most agreeable resolutions for all, while respecting and honoring relationships.

Glad to have Kimberly assist me through the divorce
Kimberly was friendly and helpful in all phases of my divorce. Although it was not a contested situation, she was able to help me make good decisions. Thank you Kimberly.

Excellent collaborative-law divorce help
Kimberly Miller represented me in my divorce in late 2019. Kimberly is well experienced in the collaborative law model for less antagonistic divorce proceedings. In our initial meeting, she listened well and understood the nuances of my financial, family, and emotional situation. She was very comfortable with her collaborative law colleague whom my ex-spouse had chosen for representation. I was impressed throughout my relatively short time with Kimberly with her ability to roll with the changes and to assess my varying needs as negotiations proceeded. She was very responsive to my requests. She thoroughly knew the law and how it protected me in the context of divorce in this state (Minnesota). And she skillfully managed our in-person negotiations when the final financial details (splitting equity of house) needed to be agreed upon. I trusted her implicitly throughout, and she worked most efficiently and expediently to bring the divorce to a close.

This is the person to choose.
I am a woman who likes facts and knowledge up front. Divorce is an emotional time for anyone, and a person who takes charge with confidence and logic is exactly who I was looking for. My ex husband and I are lucky enough to be on amicable terms. This probably isn't something a divorce attorney sees often. Kim, (who is representing both of us, but legally me), took me aside to make sure our arrangement was agreed upon. I got the feeling that she was giving me the opportunity to discuss problems that woman may hide. There are many reasons I would recommend her. But, if you're looking for a special type of person who can be strong willed and compassionate, you found her.

Creative and Effective
I am so glad that my Ex and I opted to take the collaborative route for our divorce, because litigation would have made a fraught situation even worse. Kimberly offered creative, pragmatic options to relatively quickly achieve our goal of a fair settlement . She was a pleasure to work with, and it was apparent in our meetings that my Ex's lawyer also held her in high regard.

Fair, clear, as painless as possible
From the first time we met her, Kimberly was clear, concise, up front about costs and what she was and was not willing to provide for services. She was always prompt in responses, was willing to work with us, and guided us through the painful process of divorce with as little drama as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a family lawyer.

Fair & Focused on our Goals.
Kimberly helped me and my ex-wife navigate our collaborative divorce with dignity, emotional intelligence and the common goal of protecting our children's future above all. It is not always easy (or nice) even when things are "friendly" but Kim made this difficult and painful process, easier to manage and complete.

Great client service and advice
Kimberly was very thorough and generous with her consultation and throughout the collaborative process. She is a great communicator and is careful to explain how the process works and what to expect at each stage. She is an advocate but also a realist and attempts to reach results that are fair and consistent with the goal of maintaining positive parenting relationships post-divorce. Highly recommend her services to anyone interested in collaborative divorce.
