Our Team

Kimberly Benjamin
Kimberly Benjamin
Kim is an award-winning trial lawyer in criminal and DWI defense. Her knowledge of DWI / DUI defense is often sought by other attorneys because she is on the faculty of the National College of DUI Defense and the co-director of the Missouri Bar and Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' (MACDL) annual DWI seminar. Kim is a regular speaker at national and Missouri legal programs, such as the National Child Abuse Defense & Resource Center, Missouri Public Defender System, Missouri Bar, and the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association. Kim serves as the Vice President of Missouri DWI Defense Institute and is a past president of MACDL. Other lawyers regularly ask Kim to teach them how to try a case and to watch her in trial because she is a faculty member with the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College who teaches trial skills to criminal and civil lawyers across the country. As a result of teaching civil lawyers how to try a case, she has expanded her practice to include fighting for clients in the court room in personal injury, car accidents, semi-truck accidents, and nursing home abuse and neglect cases.
