“Kim handled my divorce, and I was very impressed with his professionalism and thorough review of even the smallest details. Divorce is stressful and sometimes difficult to think about objectively, but Kim makes it easier by offering sound advice, along with being very personable, non-judgmental, and easy to work with. A big plus is that his rates are very reasonable compared to most of the big-name, hard-hitter attorneys one sees on every billboard and TV station locally. You cannot go wrong in hiring Kim Pettit to handle your divorce.”
