Kimberly A. Beatty

Attorney at Law

Kim has returned to Reese-Beisbier & Associates after spending two years in the public sector working side-by-side with both Superior Court and Juvenile Court judges as a staff attorney. During the last two years, Kim has gained a crucial understanding of the inner workings of the judicial system, and was eager to return to RBA to add those tools to her skills as an advocate and litigator. Kim is also a registered civil and family law mediator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution.

Prior to working in the public sector, Kim practiced exclusively in the area of family law. Kim has both litigated and resolved a wide range of domestic cases, including both bench and jury trials. Kim has won an appeal to the Supreme Court of Georgia and is well-versed in appellate issues.

Kim grew up in upstate New York and attended St. John’s University in New York City, where she graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Sport Management. While at St. John’s, Kim received the Michelle Doherty Award, which is given annually to the female with the highest grade point average in the Sport Management program. Kim then attended John Marshall Law School and graduated valedictorian of her class. During her time at JMLS, Kim also interned with the Georgia Public Defender Counsel, Appellate Division, working on adult and juvenile appellate cases throughout the state of Georgia.  Following law school, Kim spent time interning with the Honorable William S. Duffey, Jr. in the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, before beginning practicing family law in November of 2012.

Kim is actively involved in the community, as a member of the Forsyth County Bar Association, the Family Law Section of the Forsyth County Bar Association, and the Family Law Section of the Georgia Bar. Kim has also served as the Regional Georgia High School Mock Trial Coordinator and continues to support that program as an evaluator.

Kim lives in Cumming, Georgia, with her husband, Eddie, and spends her free time traveling, attending concerts, and spending time with her family and her two rescue dogs.
