The J. Kim Wright Experience: What Others Say About Kim

I had difficulty maintaining two personas–one at home and one at work. It took only a phone consultation with Kim for me to realize that things could be better. Kim is different from others I have worked with. Her energy is endless. She shares connections with people to the benefit of both parties. She always makes me smile and laugh. She is candid and honest and has a wealth of knowledge that no other person has as to alternative legal practices. She is a true motivator. -Katherine R. Bachelder, Fairbanks AK
At the immediate outset, Kim put me at ease in speaking with her about the issues that I wanted to gain focus on in my life. She helped me through some of the biggest growing pains in my professional career by giving me a fresh perspective that honored who I was while supporting me along my journey. Most importantly, she reflected my truest needs and desires and helped me to navigate decision-making from that place. -Ngoc H. Nguyen Weiner, New York, NY
The Kim experience is the experience of attuning to the energy of a person who consistently consults and trusts her intuitive guidance. She models the way. She inspired me to look out with curiosity and to look for opportunities to practice embodying my values rather than to wait for someone else to do it. The results? I am daring more, to show myself, to ask for what I want. I feel more alive. -Annabelle Berrios, San Francisco, CA
The contacts I made through Kim included collaborative law practitioners and social justice activists, including pioneering entrepreneurs in such areas as Sharing Law, Understanding-Based Mediation and Conscious Contracting. I have since started a monthly phone support group for lawyers interested in developing more collaborative and “cutting edge” practices. The group is small but continues to this day. We help each other proofreading and referrals. Recently, I wrote an introductory article about the field of Integrative Law that is being published in my local Bar Journal. I appreciate that Kim continues to support and advise me even though we now longer have a formal coaching relationship. I am, indeed, in a whole new place in my life because of Kim Wright. -Ken Haldenstein, New York, NY
The Kim Experience gives you a strong dose of three Cs – Connection, Creativity, and Consciousness. Connection- Kim opened her vast network to me. I was not alone after all. Creativity- Kim loves to help people with creating new approaches to our work. Consciousness – Kim will show you that you do not need to fit who you are into someone else’s idea of a lawyer. By doing this she helps us live authentically and in integrity with our true selves. -Glenn Meier, Las Vegas, NV


Several years ago, I was a burned-out, frustrated family lawyer. I was disillusioned with the court system and the damage it does to families that are already in distress. Fortunately, I met Kim and some time after that, Kim became my professional coach. Now, my family law practice is almost exclusively focused on collaborative law and mediation. I have not had a custody or divorce trial in years. I have become a collaborative law trainer and have made presentations about collaborative law internationally. I have a thriving solo practice and my personal ethics and values are perfectly aligned with my professional work. My life is in balance in a way that seemed impossible before I started working with Kim.

How did all this happen? Kim led me to the answers by her unwavering support, inspiration and a lot of humor. My inclination towards self-doubt disappeared as Kim first helped me dream and then helped me, step by step, to start living the dream. I still call on Kim from time to time for a “tune-up” when I need direction and inspiration.

If you want to undertake a transformational journey with the best possible guide, Kim is the person you are looking for. –Mariette Geldenhuys, Ithaca, New York. Founder, Ithaca Area Collaborative Law Professionals
