Myers was able to completely get my background expunged, everything was simply done through email or via phone call, hardest part was waiting on the court system

Professional, Caring, and Compassionate
Kim helped my family and I through all of the legal stages of caring for our parents as they declined mentally and physically, and then provided guidance regarding handling of the estate as dad passed, and then mom, 6 months later. Her legal counsel was professional, caring, and compassionate. Her dependable assistance was a valuable asset during a very difficult time. Kim’s focus is definitely on how she can help you - readily sharing her wealth of knowledge, experience, and skills. I highly recommend Kim for any and all estate planning and estate handling needs!

1000/10, would highly recommend, amazing lawyer
I worked with Kim on a contract that I had signed but felt like I was at risk. She was incredibly responsive, I told her it was a time concern and she got a very detailed, thoughtful, intelligent opinion to me on the contracts in a very timely manner. She was so great at answering all of my questions. She seemed to care about my situation which made me feel so helped and not just like a business transaction. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs help. I really enjoyed working with her at a time of high stress in my life. Amazing lawyer and amazing person!! Thank you Kim!!!!

Kimberly Myers - an excellent attorney
When I contacted Kimberly Myers to help me with some estate planning, it was a lucky day for me. Kimberly was very accommodating with her time in spite of Covid. She gave me her full attention and explained the procedures and legalities involved in very clear terms, I appreciated the excellent advice and recommendations she gave to me and how she involved me in all aspects of the estate-planning process. She is an excellent attorney, very efficient and, I might add, has a very pleasant personality which made me feel comfortable and made the decisions and procedures less intimidating. I could not have made a better choice and I very highly recommend her to anyone that is seeking legal help or advice.

Knowledgeable, Empathetic, Thorough, Friendly!
Kim helped us with my dad's estate. Things are still very emotional and she was very understanding. Great communication via phone, email, and in person. Answered all our questions thoroughly. Made sure we had everything we needed and was very accommodating with our schedules. I would highly recommend Kim and would seek her services again if the need arises.

Excellent attorney
My husband and I thought that working on estate planning for the first time would be complicated and time consuming. Ms. Meyers answered all our questions thoroughly and made the process flow smoothly. We found her to be friendly and very knowledgeable. We would recommend her services to anyone in need of estate planning.

Compassionate and Reliable
Ms. Myers has helped my father and I through several family concerns over the last 18 months. She worked with us through the sensitive and difficult issue of obtaining Guardianship. She continues to work with us through the continued legal responsibilities of Guardianship. She is reliable, honest, and thoughtful in her approach. She displays a personal interest in her clients which has decreased some of the tensions and nervousness that can occur during legal proceedings. We appreciate her honest, positive, and compassionate approach to her work.

Effective, Compassionate Attorney
Attorney Kim Myers has helped my husband and me through many concerns over the past five years. We appreciate her honest, positive approach to her work. Though her areas of specialization are Estate Planning and Elder law, her expertise reaches far beyond those areas. For us, she has been indispensable in forming the LLCs for our fledgling business. Beyond that, she has drawn up loan contracts for us and helped us to establish Power of Attorney for a residential real estate transaction. Perhaps most important, however, was Ms. Myers's clear, professional, compassionate manner as she worked with us to determine the estate plan that would work best for our family. We are grateful to have had such a competent, caring attorney to guide us. Her personal interest in her clients' needs sets her apart from others. She is definitely our go-to person for legal matters.

Excellent, trustworthy attorney
Ms Myers handled a difficult real estate issue for me, from foreclosure proceedings through closing. She kept me informed and explained the process and my options in a way that a lay person could easily understand, and she followed the process through to successful completion. I found her to be very competent, trustworthy and conscientious.
