Get to Know Kim Keheley Frye: Cobb County’s Criminal Defense Attorney

By November 21, 2022No Comments

Kim Keheley Frye knows that the State does not always fight fair. That’s why she has dedicated her practice to defending her clients and their rights to the fullest degree.

A former prosecutor and lifelong advocate for justice, Kim has seen enough unjust cases to know that sometimes the government gets it wrong. Sometimes people are getting in trouble for the first time ever. Sometimes they’ve made an error in judgment that could completely change their life. Sometimes they are innocent.

And they need someone on their side.

That’s where Kim comes in.

Cobb County Criminal Defense Attorney: Kim’s Background

Kim was born and raised in Cobb County. After graduating from North Cobb High School, she studied Criminal Justice at the University of Georgia and went on to get her J.D. from Georgia State University College of Law.

During her time at Georgia State University College of Law, Kim was honored to be a State Finalist in the Trial Competitions with the Student Trial Lawyers Association and a Member of Honor Court.

Kim Keheley Frye’s Experience was Shaped By Her Time as a State Prosecutor

Soon after graduating she began as an Assistant District Attorney for the Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit, and later she worked as an Assistant Solicitor General for the Cobb County Solicitor General’s Office. 

Her experience as a prosecutor inspired her to open her own law firm – but this time, as a criminal defense lawyer.

The Frye Law Group

Kim founded the Frye Law Group in 2008 as a firm devoted to defending the people from unfair charges from the State. Clients typically come to Kim in crisis, and she takes the time to learn each client’s story thoroughly. This way, she can help her clients to understand the system they’ve been thrust into and what’s at stake in their case.

“My philosophy has always been that if you want to enforce the law, you must follow it. If we shortcut evidence and truth because we believe the person to be guilty, or if the government uses trickery and deceit to get the ‘bad guy,’ then all of those things will be employed against the innocent, as well.”

Since earning her law degree, Kim has taken over 60 cases to jury trial as lead counsel. Each case she takes helps her work towards justice for people victimized by the State. Kim has served as both President and Vice President of the Cobb Bar Association Criminal Defense Section, and as a Board Member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense. She has also presented at both national and international conferences regarding DUIs and professionalism.

During her time as an attorney, Kim has been admitted to the Superior Courts of the State of Georgia, the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Georgia, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

She is a member of the Georgia Bar Association and The Cobb County Bar Association, as well as a Life Member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys. Other associations she is involved with include:

  • DUI Defense Lawyers Association, Charter Member
  • Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, Member
  • Atlanta Lawyers Club, Member
  • Cobb County Bar Association, Criminal Defense section, 3 time Past-President
  • Cobb County Bar Association, Solo/Small Firm section, Past-President

She was awarded the Jimmy Berry Champion of Justice Award in 2022 for her work as the criminal defense section of the Cobb County bar during the pandemic years.

Other Cobb County Activities

When she’s not in the courtroom, Kim enjoys singing karaoke and trying out local restaurants. She’s the proud mom of two sons who have helped her understand how difficult it can be to be a young adult today. 

She is an active participant in the Due West UMC Treasure Chest, the L’il Lambs Closet Consignment sale at First United Methodist Church, the Sleighbells on the Square, and the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta.

In 2006, she was honored to receive the Ruth Northcutt Community Service award.

If there’s a game on, you can find her cheering for the Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Bulldogs. Go Dawgs!
