Kimberly “Kimi” Wise
Senior associate attorney, Kimi Wise, has been practicing family law in the metro Atlanta area since 2018. Even during law school, Ms. Wise displayed a dedication to family law in the metro Atlanta area by interning with two Cobb County Superior Court Judges, interning at multiple family law firms in Cobb County, and working with Cobb County Legal Aid. In 2023, Ms. Wise was voted 3rd place in Best of Cobb Family Law Attorney and Individual Attorney.
Ms. Wise graduated Summa Cum Laude from Kennesaw State University in 2014 and obtained her Juris Doctor with honors at Emory University School of Law in 2018. She became a member of the Georgia Bar in 2018.
Ms. Wise has experience on the other side of family law, as a client, and believes that helps her relate to her clients in her practice. She loves practicing family law and trying to help people and families find resolution, which is why she now will also be practicing as a Guardian ad Litem.
When Ms. Wise is not advocating for her client, she, her husband, and three children, can usually be found at home, the ballfield, or their local Mexican restaurant.
