Wilson, Dabler & Associates welcomes to the firm Kimberley A. Nelson, our new associate attorney. Kim will be practicing in the areas of Family Law, Probate and Domestic Violence primarily, although she has a background in Criminal law in both Missouri and Illinois as well. She graduated from St. Louis University School of Law in 2018 as a Dean’s Scholar at the law school and practiced in the state of Missouri, until relocating to Illinois in 2021. Kim will be a great asset to our staff as she has been able to take over the workload of our former associate Sara Rice, who recently became an associate judge in St. Clair County, as well as being available to take on new clients as needed immediately.
With her extensive experience in Family Law, Kim is well-equipped to handle complex divorce cases, child custody disputes, and prenuptial agreements. Her understanding of Probate law allows her to guide clients through the legal process of estate planning, drafting wills and trusts, and administering estates after a loved one’s passing.
Kim approaches every case with empathy and compassion while fiercely defending her client’s rights. She believes that open communication is key when working with individuals facing challenging circumstances. By building strong relationships with her clients, she aims to understand their unique needs and provide personalized solutions tailored explicitly for each situation.
Having practiced law both in Missouri and Illinois gives Kim a broader perspective on the differences between state laws.
