Davidson appointed to state parole board

A veteran attorney has been appointed to the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles by Gov. Kay Ivey.

Kim Davidson was announced as the new member on Tuesday in a press release from the Board.

“It is an honor to become part of this team, and I am looking forward to working with fellow Board members,” said Davidson. “I am genuinely committed to leaving a positive impact on people I serve by making careful and informed decisions focusing on public safety, offender accountability and victims’ rights.”

Davidson has a long career practicing law and graduated with a Juris Doctor from the Birmingham School of Law and became a member of the Alabama State Bar in 1996. Since then she has led the Law Office of Kim Davidson located in Vestavia Hills.

Board Director Cam Ward said Davidson is well suited for the job.

“Kim will be a great addition to the Board of Pardons and Paroles,” he said. “Her legal background in family law and mediation makes her well suited for this position. I look forward to working with her in this new role.”

Davidson will be replacing Dwayne Spurlock who had served since 2018.
