A familiar face will soon be navigating the halls of the Cullman County Courthouse. Cullman’s own retired District Judge Kim J. Chaney will be playing a new role; advocating for his clients as an attorney in private practice. Chaney, who was the longest-serving District Judge in Cullman County History, with more than 27 years on the bench, is no stranger to the stress and frustration a legal dispute can have on individuals and families.
Chaney said: “I know bad things happen to good people. Whether dealing with a debilitating accident or injury, a family court issue, or any other serious legal challenge, “ I want to use all my legal experience to provide legal representation to help the good people in Cullman County find justice within the law.”
Kim J. Chaney is credited with initiating many significant criminal justice programs, including The Cullman County Drug Court, Cullman Community Corrections alternative sentencing program, and the Mitnick Boot camp program, which helps troubled juvenile offenders across the State.
Chaney said, “I have dedicated over 35 years of my life to the legal profession; working as a deputy sheriff, Cullman Assistant District Attorney, and Cullman District Judge. As I look back over the many years, I am starting to feel a little old,” Chaney joked, “But I also feel as an attorney in private practice, I have gained valuable experience and knowledge of the legal system that can help and benefit my clients in the courtroom.”
