Kim C. Martin

Kim Martin is a trusts and estates attorney whose practice focuses on estate planning for families with a special needs family member. Her areas of expertise also include guardianship (including guardianship transfers), divorce settlement agreements in cases involving a special needs child, and tax planning.

As the mother of two beautiful children, one of whom has Autism, Kim brings to her practice an appreciation for the unique challenges and joys of parenting a special needs child. Her favorite aspect of her practice is that it allows her to serve as a resource for families like her own.

Before joining Harrison LLP, Kim practiced at a boutique special needs planning firm in Atlanta. Her previous law firm experience also includes Lefkoff, Duncan, Grimes, McSwain and Hass, P.C., and Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams and Martin (now Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams, and Aughtry). She has also worked in the State and Local Tax Division of KPMG, LLP.

Kim is a frequent speaker on the subjects of special needs trusts, guardianship, and divorce for families that include a child with special needs. She has appeared on several podcasts, most notably Wealth Matters and ABC’s of Disability Planning. Kim has published articles in Trusts and Estates Magazine and Family Lawyer Magazine.
