About Kimberly Gray, Management Partner

Kimberly Gray has over 19 years of experience in the practice of Family Law. Ms. Gray began her career working for Jackson County, Missouri as a Hearing Officer before clerking for the Honorable John R. Gray (no relation) and then advancing as an attorney or the Juvenile Officer for Jackson County Family Court. She joined Cordell & Cordell in 2009 and has actively practiced and litigated in Missouri, Tennessee, and New York. Ms. Gray opened both the Nashville, Tennessee, and Buffalo, New York offices of Cordell & Cordell. After starting as a Litigation Attorney with Cordell & Cordell, she has advanced in management to her current position as a Management Partner of the Firm where she is based in the Town & Country (St. Louis), Missouri office. She currently oversees 28 offices of the Firm.

Having first chaired more than 300 cases throughout her legal career, Ms. Gray has been recognized by Cordell & Cordell and the legal community for her litigation skills. She has also handled several appellate decisions in both Missouri and Tennessee resulting in favorable outcomes for her clients. Her tenacity as a litigator is apparent when she successfully appealed the same case twice, both times having the Western District of Missouri Court of Appeals correct trial court errors. “Children need both parents actively involved in their children’s lives, so I work hard to ensure my clients attain equal parenting time.”

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
  • “It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
    – Mason B.
  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
    – Mark L.
