Brian Kimninau

Family Law Attorney

home-brian

I attended the University of Arizona, College of Law and graduated in 1997. I was admitted to the Arizona and Federal bars in late 1997. I have concentrated my practice in Family/Domestic Relations law, juvenile law, criminal law and general civil litigation. I am currently in practice and sit as a judge pro tempore for domestic relations and juvenile cases. I have been married for 28 years and have two children, 26 and 21.

I enjoy outdoor activities and remain active in sports. For the last ten years, I have been active with our local little league, the Flowing Wells Continental Little League. I have been president, player agent, umpire, coach and manager. My son has just about aged-out of the little league program and I will likely be looking for another hobby.

Licensed in US Federal and Arizona State Courts
Member of the Pima County Bar Association
Judge Pro Tem with the Pima County Superior Court and Juvenile Court
Member of Association of Family and Conciliation Courts
Experience in Family law ans Juvenile Trials

I was a sole practitioner from 1997 through October of 2011. My practice was concentrated in domestic relations. I have extensive experience dealing with the issues that come up in family law and juvenile cases. During my many years in this field, I’ve developed a working relationship with the other attorneys in this field. I’ve found that, all too often, people allow the emotional storm that comes with a family law case to cloud the outcome they seek. You will find that one of the most helpful parts of having an attorney is to help you identify your desired outcomes, letting you really know what to expect and then guiding you to that goal.

Brian Kimminau's Outlook on Family Law

Family law cases are seldom happy affairs. Expect some emotional pain regardless of the feelings you have at present. My goal in every case is to obtain a result that serves the client. Knowing that, every client needs to evaluate what they want and what they can reasonably expect from the court system. That’s where an experienced attorney really makes the difference. There really is a reason you’ll hear attorneys referred to a “counselor.” Part of obtaining the desired result is keeping the client fully informed of both what is happening in the case and what can be reasonably expected. I do that in every case.
