Considered one of the most effective defense attorneys operating in Afghanistan, Kimberley’s ground-breaking legal work has made headlines around the world. Representing both Afghans and Westerners her radical approach has seen her successfully overturn sentences for men and women who have become subject to appalling miscarriages of justice.
Kimberley is best known in Australia for her work in returning two Australian children taken illegally to Afghanistan by their father in 2015. She also represented former Australian soldier Robert Langdon and was responsible for successfully arguing for a Presidential pardon which resulted in his release from Afghanistan’s most notorious prison.
