Attorney Kimberly Diego is a native of Texas with deep roots on both North and South American continents. Fluent in Spanish, she attended high school in Argentina, Colombia, and Puerto Rico. Also as a high school student, she took classes at the universities of Oxford and Harvard.

She obtained her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, and her law degree at University of Colorado. While in law school, she completed the Criminal Defense Clinic and interned with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office. She was admitted to the Colorado bar in 2008 and now practices criminal defense law in Denver. She is also licensed to practice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

Kimberly became a criminal defense lawyer because she has a strong personal belief that every person is entitled to a legal defense  a principle so important that it was specifically written into the United States Constitution. Diego notes that although criminal defense is a little-regarded area of law, it is vital to a just society and a field she finds personally rewarding.
