“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” — John Holmes
As the descendant of a long line of Kansas farmers, Kim Roepke respects and understands the problems of injured workers. Ms. Roepke received her B.A. in 1981 as a graduate from the University of Kansas. After time spent raising her two sons, she attended law school at the University of Missouri in Kansas City where she received her J.D. in 2003.
Ms. Roepke moved to Colorado after graduating from law school and became involved in volunteering with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). After passing the Colorado bar, Ms. Roepke set up a law partnership and began practicing family law. She volunteered as an attorney advisor and speaker for the Children and Families in Transition (C-FIT) program. She has handled pro-bono cases and has been appointed by the District Court Magistrate as Guardian ad Litem on several cases.
Kim Roepke began working with Steven U. Mullens several years ago, when she was helped one of her clients find representation for a serious work comp case involving the death of a worker. Ms. Roepke assisted Mr. Mullens in working on the case, and after the case concluded Ms. Roepke joined the firm. Since that time Ms. Roepke has centered her practice on work comp cases and worked exclusively for Steven U. Mullens, P.C. as an Of Counsel attorney until that firm’s closure in 2015. Kim then joined two other partners in forming Turner, Roepke & Mueller, LLC, and continued representing injured people until proudly joining Franklin D. Azar & Associates, P.C., in early 2020.
In addition to the practice of worker’s compensation, Ms. Roepke also handles Social Security Disability. Kim is active and contributes to several local organizations. She is a regular at the gym and enjoys tennis, skiing and hiking. Her hobbies are music, movies, cooking and Jayhawk basketball.
