Summary

Kristen focuses on family, criminal, and animal matters. Family law matters include divorces, changing or modifying custody orders, child support issues, child custody issues, and paternity actions. Kristen helps her clients be prepared for the legal issues that come during emotional times when family dynamics are changing.

Animal matters are an area of law that is growing. Pet owners find themselves facing fines and possible jail time. If you're a pet owner and find yourself facing some sort of legal problem, Kristen can help. Kristen has volunteered at Spay & Neuter KC on numerous occasions and has a passion for helping families keep their pets safe, healthy, and out of legal trouble.

Thurmond Law Firm can help individuals facing many types of criminal problems, such as theft, destruction of property, trespassing, assault, resisting arrest, domestic violence, harassment, and more.

Originally from Nixa, Missouri, Kristen came to the Kansas City metro area to attend William Jewell College and fell in love with the city. She decided to go to UMKC School of Law and build connections in Kansas City.
