Kristen S. Simpson, Family Law Attorney
Kristen’s particular passion for family law and related issues comes not just from a rational decision alone but also from having lived many of the experiences herself. It is to her that her clients do this.
Her family moved from Illinois to Mayfield, Kentucky when she was seven years old and she graduated from Mayfield High School with honors. She received the William C. Parker Scholarship and the Gates Millennium Scholarship, both of which completely covered the cost of her tuition at the University of Kentucky.
A small-town girl in a school that had double the population of Mayfield was a terrifying experience. Kristen provided income for herself working part-time at the student book store and waiting tables. Despite the jobs that she kept, she managed to keep a high-grade point average and eventually became a tutor for other students. She belonged to the Communications Honor Society, as well as the Future Minority Law Student Association, and was elected treasurer and fundraising director of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity. She graduated with a B.A. In English and Communications in 2005.
