Kim Pittman has been practicing family law for over a decade. After graduating cum laude from the University of Maine School of Law, she practiced in a small Portland firm for a year before striking out on her own. After three years of solo practice, she became a Partner at Vincent, Kantz, Ruffner & Pittman. In October 2011, the Law Offices of Vincent, Kantz, Pittman & Thompson were formed.
Kim specializes in all areas of family law, including divorce, child custody, support issues and parental rights and responsibilities. Her practice also includes representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants in Protection from Abuse and Harassment matters. She also represents parents in Protective Custody cases.
Kim has a keen understanding of the emotional and financial toll extensive litigation can take on her clients. This understanding balanced with vigorous advocacy for her clients has earned her a reputation as a compassionate yet aggressive attorney. No two cases are alike, and Kim works with her clients to come up with the best strategy to see them through to a positive outcome.
Kim is passionate about giving back to the community. She is an active volunteer with the Volunteer Lawyers Project where she is a member of the Board and has been recognized yearly by the Katahdin Counsel for her commitment to pro bono opportunities in the state of Maine. In 2012, she received the Minott-Crowley Award for Excellence in Volunteerism.
Kim works closely with Family Crisis Outreach and the Volunteer Lawyers Project to ensure justice for all Mainers, regardless of their income level. She is a regular volunteer at the Portland District Court Domestic Violence Advocacy Program and donates her time and expertise once a month at Portland’s Courthouse Assistance Program, or CHAP. She recently developed a program at the Windham Correctional Facility known as AIM, or Advocates for Incarcerated Mothers.
