“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling.” – Fabienne Fredrickson
Juanita Kimble has always had a passion for both solving problems and being helpful to others when possible. She can do that and so much more as a criminal defense attorney!
Juanita began her legal career in 2012, knowing early on she intended to focus on criminal defense. Since then, she has become a strong and unwavering advocate for those who trust her with their defense. Juanita served as a Public Defender for several years in the City of Atlanta, where she not only represented hundreds of people facing various types of charges, she was known as the go-to person other attorneys sought for advice on how to get things done in the courtroom, how to handle particularly tricky client situations, as well as for her savant-like knowledge of the criminal code. Given her innovative and zealous defense techniques, she was quickly promoted within her office, asked to mentor and train other attorneys, and recognized for her advocacy and professionalism.
Here at EHG Law firm, we understand how stressful facing criminal charges can be, and as a result, Juanita takes a very hands-on approach when helping clients. She makes it a point to ensure her clients understand what’s happening at every stage of the case and are given the information necessary to make the best decision for their situation. Here, her natural patience and compassion shine through as she counsels, listens, and cares about what really matters to our clients.
Knowledge of the law is an important part of being a defense attorney, so Juanita has prioritized ensuring her legal education and training go beyond what is necessary to provide the best defense for our clients. Although we handle various criminal cases, Juanita has gained rare, specialized training in DUI and traffic defense. She has not only studied the same techniques taught to police officers, but Juanita has become a fully credited Instructor of DUI Detection and Field Sobriety Testing. She is also trained in Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) and the Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) program; courses typically saved for specialized law enforcement. As an expert, she now teaches attorneys from all over the country about DUI Defense, including most recently in Alpharetta, Dunwoody, and Savannah. She’ll be teaching again in Las Vegas in the Fall of 2023.
Although she’s known and loved throughout Georgia, Kentucky is the place she’ll always call home. Growing up in Lexington, she developed two great loves – bourbon and the Kentucky Wildcats! Indeed, she met her husband Mike while attending the University of Kentucky, and they now live locally with their beloved pooch Cairo.
