"Without Kim's help, things could have gone terribly wrong with the landlord of the past space I was leasing. She was extremely timely in all of her responses, she made sure I understood everything clearly, and she did far more than what was required of her. Without her help during that extremely difficult time, I don't believe I would be in as good of a place mentally or financially. I don't believe I could ever thank her enough. -Jeremiah"
"Kim always responds promptly to my questions and requests and can quickly identify my organization’s specific legal needs. She is very knowledgeable and treats my concerns as her own. She assisted us with a particularly difficult contractual situation, where we believed we were trapped in an unfair, one-sided agreement. She thoroughly analyzed the contract, determined a strategy to extract us from the agreement without committing a breach, and assisted us in implementing the plan. Due to Kim’s strategy, we were able to convince the other party to agree to a mutual cancellation of the contract. We couldn’t have been happier with the result: not only were able to put an end to a burdensome and outdated agreement that was harming our organization, but we were able to maintain an amicable relationship with the other party as well. Kim is thorough, prompt, friendly and knowledgeable in her approach and interactions. Kim is the first person I call with a legal question. I highly recommend Kim to anyone seeking an attorney."
