SPEAKER: Kristin Kirkner, Esq.


SPEAKER'S BIO: 

Kristin Kirkner has focused her practice on family law and military family law since 2004.  By limiting her practice to family law, including divorce, paternity, custody, child support, alimony and military divorces, Kristin has been able to focus on the one area that best utilizes her negotiation and litigation skills. Kristin is Board Certified in Marital and Family Law in the State of Florida, and has been accepted in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit for the State of Florida as an expert in military divorces and division of military pensions.


Kristin is the Chair of the Marital and Family Law Section of the Hillsborough County Bar Association for 2014-2015, having served as the Chair Elect in 2013-2014, the Secretary from 2012-2013 and a member of the Executive Council since 2008.  Kristin was selected by SuperLawyers as a “Rising Star” in the area of family law in 2013 and 2014, an honor that is bestowed on less than 2.5% of lawyers each year and has been named by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys as a “Top 10 under 40” for Family Law in Florida.  Although the 2014 board certification in Marital and Family Law in the State of Florida is her most recent achievement, she has long been a high achiever, having graduated cum laude from Colorado State University with her B.A. in 1999 and received her J.D., cum laude, from Arizona State University in 2003.


Kristin is a member of the Family Law Inn of Court, the Hillsborough County Association of Women Lawyers and State Bar of Florida. Kristin was selected to participate in the Hillsborough County Bar Association Leadership Institute in 2008-2009, and she served as a volunteer judge for the Hillsborough County Teen Court program from 2005 to 2006.


Before opening Kirkner Family Law Group, Kristin was a partner at DeCort & Kirkner P.L. from 2010-2014 and an associate attorney at the The Law Office of Donald P. DeCort, P.A. from 2005 to 2010 and staff attorney at Bay Area Legal Services from 2004 to 2005, where she focused on domestic violence law and domestic violence injunctions.


Kristin grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and worked at LexisNexis before attending law school. She moved to Florida in 2004 when her husband was stationed at MacDill Air Force base, and found a true home in the Tampa Bay area.  Kristin is a proud military spouse and the mother of two girls.
