Kimberly became a criminal defense lawyer because she has a strong personal belief that every person is entitled to a legal defense ? a principle so important that it was specifically written into the United States Constitution. Diego notes that although criminal defense is a little-regarded area of law, it is vital to a just society and a field she finds personally rewarding. Kimberly's practice is rooted in the idea that every client is entitled to a rigorous criminal defense. She places a priority on giving each case her personal attention, a commitment to service that is reflected in her successes.
