Prompt, Smart, and Empathetic
I only interacted with Kim briefly, but the questions I had surrounding a hit and run case were greatly appreciated. She didn't respond with any outlandish theatrics, and she presented what she through would be the next steps in my case during the consultation. She helped me make the right decision without the need for representation on a low level case. I will not hesitate to hire her if needed in the future.

Kimberly is a very professional lawyer
Kimberly handled my traffic violation case. She was very knowledgeable, capable and responsible and handled my case with the utmost professionalism. My case was dismissed - the best result that can be sought after. The whole process has been quite painless for me. I would definitely work with Kimberly again and would recommend her to anyone needing her advice/help.

100% recommend
Hired Kimberly to represent me, and she helped walk me through all the proactive things I could do to help. She walked me through what to expect, and promptly answered any questions that I had. Ultimately she was able to quickly get my case dismissed and my record sealed. The whole process can be stressfull but Kimberly did a great job at easing that stress by explaining what I should expect every step of the way.

10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND!!!!!
Kimberly Diego is an award-winning lawyer in Colorado, and I cannot recommend her services highly enough. She is incredibly intelligent, hard-working, kind, compassionate, and punctual. If you choose to hire Kimberly to help you with your legal situation, you will be in great hands--she has one of the very best legal minds in Colorado and is one of the most competent and professional attorneys in the state. She is so responsive via both text and email, and responded to my various requests and acted upon them immediately while also providing her patient insight and guidance along the way. In the courtroom, Kimberly commands the respect of her peers and the judges because of her legal acumen and alacrity. I am so grateful to have found such a hard-working and caring lawyer to help me with my case. Kimberly did considerable research for me, which she could not even do online (she had to go on foot to certain courthouses in order to review various documents for me) and was able to spot the errors in other attorney's filings, which proved to be very beneficial. 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND!!!!!

Very satisfied
I was told my case would be difficult but she was persistent and patient. I was given realistic expectations but they were very much exceeded. Cost was very reasonable and I never waited very long to hear back on any of my worries or questions.

Satisfied and Relieved
I hired Kimberly after interviewing several attorneys for my domestic violence case. What struck me about Kimberly was how straightforward and honest she was from day one. I got a lot of promises from other lawyers. Of course when you’re facing a warrant you are scared - or at least I was - and want to hear good news only, but what is most important when hiring an attorney is to hear the truth. Kimberly did take the time To explain the process from start to finish to me, and the process unfolded exactly as she said it would. In the end, we did get done what I was hoping for when we were able to get my case dismissed after showing the other party to be a habitual instigator and abuser. I am thankful for how easy this process was and how transparent it was most importantly. I hope to never need her again but if anything ever happens I know who to call.

Best money I’ve spent
My son had a little “entanglement” in the Wild West. I had to bail him out and get him in line. I also had to help him with a good lawyer. Kim delivered, better then I’d thought was possible. Kim rocks!

Case dismissed
I hired Kimberly to defend my daughter who was charged with assault in Denver. Being out of state it was very hard to know who to hire having now want to ask for a referral. Kimberly worked very hard to secure at dismissal and my daughters case, having to negotiate with multiple prosecutors to achieve this outcome. We are forever grateful and can now move on from this terrible ordeal.

Competent, Confident and Comfortable
My case was unique, but Kimberly made me feel comfortable and was extremely efficient in her ability and work. She is smarter than her higher priced competitors in Denver and really knows her specialty. I appreciate her as an attorney and also a friend and feel a great debt to her as my life could have been extremely stressful with a less competent professional. Thank you Kimberly. I would highly recommend this law firm.

Exactly what you would want in a representative!
I hired Kim to defend me in a very unfortunate situation I was involved with. I can't express how kind and informative she was so quickly once we began speaking. She had so much knowledge in the area I needed representation in and made me feel very confident in my decision to hire her. Her great work ethic and devotion to her job truly shows and i'll never forget what she did for me! You can't go wrong with Kim.

Honest Advice
I called several attorneys regarding a traffic matter. Almost every one of them told me I needed a lawyer and that I would need to pay at least $1000 for their fees. Well, I spoke with Kimberly and she told me I didn't need a lawyer and that whether or not I had a lawyer, she could already tell me exactly how my case would turn out - this ended up being 100% true. Thank you for being honest and straightforward, I don't have a lot of money to spare so Im thankful I did not spend money I didn't need to.

More than a dollar sign
I hired Kim after speaking to her over the weekend when I was calling every law office in the book but not getting any answers. I didn't end up hearing back from anyone else until the following week and when I did the conversations were brief and uncaring. My case got the attention it needed and it was resolved in a positive way because of the time she took to get to know me and my circumstances.

Dismissal Practically Overnight
I know that not everyone's case gets dismissed but I do know that had I made a different choice in attorney it probably would not have happened for me. She had to be very persistent in reaching out to the prosecuting attorney and it was clear from their interactions that there was a level of respect there that made negotiations easier. I am so happy with how the case turned out but more importantly with the hard work that was done on my case.

Honest Advice
I consulted with this attorney on a case for which I had already spoken to a few other lawyers in Denver. They tried to pressure me into signing an agreement and paying a retainer ASAP. She took the time to explain to me why my case was so simple that I could handle it on my own, because my result would not be impacted by hiring counsel. Basically I was going to get the same deal with or without a lawyer. I appreciated this advice which ended up being completely true, and saved me money I didnt really have to spare.

Competent and Effective
I retained Ms. Diego for a misdemeanor case. While the case itself was not too serious, it was serious for me because of my job and the license I hold. With diligence and thorough investigation, she was able to obtain an outcome which resulted in no impact on my employment.

Thorough Representation
I hired Kimberly for a felony case. The charge was serious, and I was facing the potential of jail time. Over several months, she was able to get me the resolution I wanted. I don’t think it was easy but she was very persistent. I am very appreciative of the assistance in what was very challenging time.

I needed help desperately...
I was in serious need of legal help. In total i was facing 2 felonies and 3 misdemeanors. I was in Jail and the courts made a mistake with my bail hearing so i could not get out of jail. Kimberly used her contacts to get a bail hearing moved up and set up. She was also t get hearings moved up to get my bail reduced. She was great and communicated with my family while i was in jail. She is a great lawyer and got a lot of work done before i even pleaded not guilty. As a result of her advice and work i was able to get every charged dismissed quickly. I was facing up to 15 years in prison and she saved my life . Not only that but she was able to get the charges sealed so it does not show up anywhere on my record for background checks without me even asking. If you are in desperate help like i was Kimberly is who you want.
