Thank you, Kim and Cat.
Kim and Cat brought me through my protection order process with the utmost professionalism, sensitivity, and compassion. I could not have asked for a better team to fight for me. The burden of this painful process was lifted from my shoulders-- I felt I could trust Kim completely to fight for me and leave nothing unsaid. Kim talked to me on the phone multiple times to ensure I felt informed and answered all my questions. Kim and Cat helped me regain a sense of empowerment and control over my life, and I'd recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Compassionate
I hired Kim Reid to help me with Domestic Violence Protection Order. I was scared and intimated by the entire process. Kim stepped in and made the process so much easier to deal with. Without her I do not think I could have navigated such a difficult situation. After the order was entered I hired Kim Reid to do my divorce as well. She was so professional and her Paralegal Cat was also amazing. Very quick to respond and kept me informed of what to expect throughout the entire process. They never lost sight of the fact that even though they do this kind of work often I was overwhelmed with the process. They explained the process every step of the way. Kim was amazing. I couldn't have made it through this process without her.

Compassionate and tough
Kim had been my attorney for many years, through a dissolution and protection order renewals. I will be her client until she retires. Kim and Cat are caring and kind.

Kim is an awesome and personable attorney!
I originally learned of Ms. Kim Reid through a old friend of mine. Kim is very knowledgeable in her field. She was extremely thorough on my complicated 3 year case and in the end I got the results I desperately needed. On top of that she is very personable and easy to communicate with. I have already recommended 2 friends who are currently using Kim for different types of cases than my own. I would recommend her to anyone.

Thank You, Kim . . .
My divorce was the most stressfull and frustrating event I have ever lived through. My ex was bound and determined to completely disable and discredit me. Kim was there for me at every turn. Not only did she represent me fairly and squarely at court but followed up on everything I asked for. There were times when I was hitting rock bottom but she was there with the human touch that is quite often missing in attorney-client relationships. She assured me that life would go on regardless of the result. She didn't paint a rosy picture for me, but offered the clear facts and her personal advice. It was hard to take but, in the end, she was right on the target. I lost a lot . . . but that was inevitable -- I didn't have the money to fight it! Kim assured me that there was more to the battle than winning possession or investments or security. She convinced me that my life would go on with the settlement that was offered and that I would actually come out the winner -- I just had to be patient and believe in the process. She was right . . . three months down the line since the divorce was finalized, I have a new home, a new car, and my savings aren't completely at drop bottom. It could have been worse if I had followed my instincts to fight to the death. Thank you, Kim, and your wonderful assistant, Cheryl, for all the support and professional representation through this ordeal. I am happy and I am relieved and I am glad that I hired the two of you to assist me with my divorce. Hopefully, I won't need your services again, but if I ever do, I'll be back. I can attest to your honesty and to your professionalism and to your straight forward and upfront advice. Life isn't always a bed of roses, that's for sure . . . and sometimes when we are in difficult situations, that's all we want to see because we've been dealt such hard blows. Being able to explain the reality of the situation and to guide me through the dark times was key to my coming through the other end. Every time I lock the door behind me when I come home now, I no longer feel the strain of a bad marriage . . . my life looks a little different but that's because I gave up a lot to gain a lot more . . . and that was in large part due to you. I will always remember you pulling me through. Thank you, Kim!

Someone you want in your corner!
Kim and her assistant helped me and my family through the toughest time in our lives. I switched to her from a different lawyer and it was the best decision I ever made. She fought for me and worked her ass off !! She is worth every penny !!!!

Priceless
Kim has been on my side through the entire process, even when I said or did less than intelligent things. Family law must be very difficult to work in, especially as emotions run high and difficult situations present itself. Kim has always been professional with a bit of conviction, which I needed from my lawyer to get through my case. Her drive and devotion to her clients is refreshing. I am grateful for the recommend every time I have to go to court.

Worth EVERY Penny!
I was caught up in the family law system for a total of 14 years. In the past, I felt all my money went to hearing being continued, postponed, and sent to mediation.-never any resolve. Ms. Reid put an end to all the non-sense and our family has had closure for 3 years. She is the most compassionate attorney I have ever retained. She listened, asked appropriate questions, and what I liked best is that if I was requesting something she thought was not appropriate she told me and explained why. She had my best interests in mind. Not to mention she took the bull by the horns and gave my family the closure we longed for.

Very happy
After dealing with my matter alone I was directed to Kim, she put the interest of the kids first . I am very happy with the outcome. And would not think twice about hiring her and her team again!

Treated like a human
After paying everything I could to other local attorneys, Kimberly Reid was put on the case. I will not go into details regarding the case, however, I would not hesitate to hire her again; she brought a very much needed level of honesty and straight-forward practices to an otherwise incredibly lacking Thurston County.

Family law / guardianship
I retained $1250.00 Kim Reid to do a guardianship case and she took that money and applied it to another family law case I was making payments on that she over charged me for. Kim Reid never went to court on my guardianship case after I paid her.
Posted by anonymous | February 6, 2015
Waste of time and money
I hired Kimberly for a simple civil case , she met me a few times and basically trained me to speak at my own court case, well my past experience with court I think the lawyer speaks for you right, well she charged me big time for me to speak for myself and lost the case while she sat there and tried to look pretty, well folks that don't get it, so my advice to you avoid this wasteful resource you will thank me for my advice seek a real lawyer if you want results.

Response from Kimberly Reid July 7, 2015
After reading this review, I am baffled. This is not procedurally accurate for any process that I am involved in for family law. Clearly no one would be speaking on their own behalf with me sitting by, if they had actually hired me to represent them. I am fair priced and very reasonable with my clients and their expenses as to not "charge them big time". Unfortunately anyone can write a review on this site, whether I have actually represented them or not. My work speaks for itself, as my actual clients have outlined.

Save Your Money
The most frustrating and stressful experience I've ever had. Ms. Reid is unprofessional at best. She is more than accommodating right up until the time that she receives the money to retain her services. After that, she is impossible to get a hold of, and does not respond to voice mails or emails. She loses paperwork, and fails to file important documents. Be careful...she is a good head-nodder. but in the end, totally ineffective and a complete waste of money.
