Kimberly H. Phillips, Esquire

As a young student in Norfolk, I always wanted to be an attorney. I come from a family of public servants and I very much wanted to serve my community too. I dedicated my practice of law in the area of family law for the entirety of my legal career wanting to hone my skills for the benefit of my clients and the practice area.

Recognizing that people in need of family law assistance are often at one of the most stressful times of their lives, it is critical that I listen to the client and that I communicate in a manner that the client can understand. I am committed to tailoring a strategy for my clients that aligns with the stated goals.
