Meet Attorney Kimberly A. Butler

Kimberly Butler has been working with North Texas families since 1997. She started out working with troubled youth and their families as a juvenile probation officer in Denton County. Her love and belief in the inherent goodness of children fueled her work to reach the youth of Denton County and show them there is another way through life.  In many children’s lives, it takes just one person to show their genuine care to have an impact on their outcome in life. Kimberly still hopes today that she may have been that person for even just one child. Kimberly practices in all areas of family law including juvenile law and CPS defense; guardianship, testamentary planning, and probate matters; and other general civil matters.

Kimberly has garnered an excellent reputation among her peers. In 2019, she was also awarded as a “Top Attorney” of the greater Tarrant County area in 2019 by the 360 West magazine as selected from a peer-based poll.

Personal/Hobbies

Kimberly grew up in Denton County, a proud member of the Lewisville Fighting Farmer Class of ’88!!  She has served the Denton County communities throughout both of her adult careers as a Juvenile Probation Officer and as an attorney.   Kimberly now lives in Trophy Club with her fur-baby, Lex Luthor, the dog who sleeps on a Superman blanket.

     

Kim enjoys spending time with family as often as possible and travelling when she can, preferably to see her three incredible nephews, whom she adores!

When Kimberly is not hanging out with the ‘rents,’ she is busy digging deep into her ancestry learning about the people and paths that were travelled to the time where she finally became a citizen of this awesome planet.
