Her ability to empathize with our particular situation was impressive, to say the least, and her resolve to see our case through to completion was both refreshing and truly sincere.

Bio

Like her Harris Cook colleagues, Kimberly Fitzpatrick is a skilled litigator with experience in a range of disciplines, including, Business Law, Personal Injury, Civil Litigation, Probate and Estate Law, Real Estate and Insurance Litigation. She’s also a certified mediator.

“What I enjoy most about my work is the opportunity to aggressively champion the best interests of my clients, many of whom have suffered a considerable loss or disadvantage,” said Fitzpatrick. “It’s very rewarding to see them emerge from the conclusion of a case considerably better off than when we started.”

Kimberly began her law career with a seven-year stint as a litigation paralegal. Prior to graduating from Texas Wesleyan School of Law, she joined the Harris Cook team where she now heads up the firm’s Arlington office.

Kimberly is actively involved in her professional community and the Tarrant County community, donating hundreds of hours of her time as a member, director or volunteer for the Junior League of Arlington, Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Arlington, Mansfield Cares, Tarrant County Bar Associations and the Arlington Bar Association. She currently serves as the mayor of Dalworthington Gardens. Through hard work, Kimberly established the annual Chili Cook-Off. In 2012, she was elected president of the Arlington Young Lawyers Association. She is currently on the board of directors for both the Arlington Bar Association and the Arlington Young Lawyers Association.
