Aaron Humphrey, Esq.
Associate Attorney

Attorney Aaron Humphrey has been engaged in the legal services industry for over twenty years, having previously served as a paralegal prior to attaining his doctorate degree in law.

As an attorney for more than a decade, he has handled or actively assisted in a wide array of cases in both state and federal courts, administrative investigations and hearings, and other legal issues involving numerous areas of law, from workers’ compensation, employment discrimination, sexual harassment and civil rights violations; business formation, real estate transactions, residential and commercial lien foreclosures, and residential mortgage loan modifications; to aggravated assault and battery, domestic violence and stalking, including cyberstalking; as well as representing debtors filing for bankruptcy. 

His passion, however, and the focus of his practice is Estate Planning, Trust Administration, Probate and Guardianship.


Attorney Humphrey first became interested in law during college where, after a rigorous and lengthy interview and screening process, he was appointed by the university’s Dean of Students as a Justice of the Student Judicial Board, serving on a peer panel of student Justices hearing matters of fellow students’ alleged violations of the university’s Student Code of Conduct. His genuine dedication to this essential role at the university was readily apparent, and he was ultimately promoted to the position of Chief Justice of the Student Judicial Board, presiding at more than one hundred twenty infraction hearings during this time. His devotion to excellence while serving on the Student Judicial Board eventually resulted in him being appointed as the university’s Student Liaison to the Florida Board of Governors, the administrative board that oversees the operation and management of the State of Florida’s public university education system. When he was subsequently accepted to law school, he excelled in his various studies of wills, trusts and estates.

Consequently, he was presented the invaluable opportunity to clerk for an established estate planning and probate attorney. During his mentorship, his natural talent and skills in this particular area of law flourished, and he has remained passionate about and committed to Estate Planning and Probate ever since, thereafter expanding his practice to also include Trust Administration and Guardianship.

Attorney Humphrey possesses considerable legal knowledge and experience, along with a sincere work ethic and meticulous attention to detail. He conducts himself professionally with compassion, sensitivity and candor when counseling and representing clients. All of these commendable qualities make him an indispensable addition to our legal team at KWG Family Legal and Mediation Services, LLC.

Outside of his legal vocation, Attorney Humphrey is married; and he and his devoted spouse, a highly skilled bankruptcy paralegal with more than fifteen years’ experience who serves at an established Fort Lauderdale law firm, are practically inseparable from one another. They enjoy hosting backyard barbeques, pool parties and dinner parties at their home, or spending the day picnicking and swimming at the beach with their friends. They also enjoy traveling together to visit their family, going camping, and going to theme parks, especially ones with rollercoasters.

Attorney Humphrey likewise enjoys white-water rafting and sky diving. He is also an avid reader with an extensive personal library, as well as being an accomplished pianist with a love for all genres of music but especially ragtime and jazz. He is very involved in his church’s music department, singing bass or bass-baritone in the choir, performing vocal solos, performing in the hand bells ensemble, and playing the piano during Sunday morning service, as well as at occasional weddings and other special events for fellow church members.

I have had the pleasure of working with Kristen on a Collaborative case, co-presenting with her on presentations, and working on various committees and projects together. I have also mediated with Kristen and through these experiences I have learned that she clearly cares and advocates for the needs and interests of her clients while working Collaboratively with the other professionals on her case. She recognizes the value of peacemaking and protecting family relationships and focusing on the best interests of the children in family law cases. Kristen is a patient, kind, calm, highly effective, efficient and a highly competent Collaborative professional. She is one of my top referrals to clients when discussing the Collaborative process and when clients need more information about family law matters.
