Sierra K. Kimbrell is a native of northeast Georgia, having been raised in White County and graduating from White County High School. During her senior year at White County High School, Sierra participated in the Youth Apprentice Program, where she began as a legal intern for Attorney Troy Millikan in Gainesville, Georgia. Upon graduating, Sierra continued to work as a paralegal for Mr. Millikan while attending North Georgia College & State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in a major of Political Science and a minor in Business Administration. After completing her undergraduate work at North Georgia, she joined the firm of Coleman, Chambers, Rogers, & Williams, LLP, as a family law paralegal for two years where she was inspired to attend law school.

After finishing her legal studies in two and a half years, Mrs. Kimbrell graduated early, cum laude, from Atlanta's John Marshall Law School in December 2016. While at law school, Sierra was a member of the Moot Court Board and Mock Trial Team. Among the multiple competitions she competed in, she was awarded Best Oral Advocate and Best Appellant Brief by the Honorable Judge Dillard, Judge McFadden, and Judge Ray, of the Georgia Court of Appeals in the 2015 G. Alan Blackburn Moot Court Competition, and semi-finalist at the 2015 Mercer National Moot Court Competition for Legal Ethics and Professionalism. In the fall semester of her second year in law school, she was appointed by the Associate Dean of Academics to serve as a legal research and writing mentor for the incoming 1L class. Also, while in law school she was a legal intern for The Orlando Firm, P.C. in Atlanta, Georgia in the spring semester of her second year. In her third year, she was a Judicial Intern for the Hall County Juvenile Court for Judge Burton, Judge Toller, and Judge Diaz. Thereafter, in her final semester of law school she was a legal intern for the Hall County District Attorney's Office where she was sworn in under the Third Year Practice Act by the Honorable Judge Jason Deal, which allowed her to handle committal hearings for the District Attorney's Office on a weekly basis. Upon graduating from law school, she received two medals for her active role in the law schools Advocacy Board and received Atlanta's John Marshall Law School Award for Excellence in Appellate Advocacy.

Throughout her studies in law school, she returned to Coleman, Chambers, Rogers, & Williams, LLP, and worked as a Law Clerk at various intervals, but officially joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in May 2017, after passing the Georgia Bar Exam. As a Family Law Attorney, Mrs. Kimbrell assists clients with cases involving: Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Alimony, Modifications of Custody, Modifications of Child Support, Modifications of Alimony, Contempt Actions, Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements, Temporary Protective Orders, Temporary Restraining Orders, Grandparent Custody and Visitation, other Third Party Custody and Visitation Actions, Paternity, Legitimation, Multi-State Action, Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), Domestic Violence, Name Changes, Juvenile Court Actions, and Adoptions.

Sierra has worked under and trained with Candace M. Williams, Bob Coleman, and Natalie Teston for the last five years prior to joining the firm as an associate attorney. Sierra is directly involved in all aspects of the court process from discovery, depositions, temporary hearings, emergency hearings, hearings on temporary protective orders to final hearings. Sierra assists her clients in determining the best custodial calendar to adopt based on real life schedules, not templates or cookie cutter forms.

Sierra lives in Helen with her husband Cody, who is a lineman for Georgia Power, and their three dogs: Diesel, Beaux, and Burke. When Mrs. Kimbrell is not practicing law, she enjoys taking trips out west and to the beach, riding her two horses, hunting and hunting and fishing with her husband. She enjoys being born and raised and raised in a small town, and that her career now allows her to give back to the community that supported her every step of the way. She truly believes that, "footsteps in the sands of time are not made by sitting down," which is a quote she found when she was a child, but it has stuck with her throughout her life and continues to be words she lives and breathes in her personal life and law practice.
