As Chief Marketing Officer, Adriane leads KJK’s strategic marketing, communications, business development, advertising, public relations, event planning and branding. She is also responsible for practice development, working to best align the scope of services KJK attorneys offer with the needs of current and prospective clients.

Adriane leads the firm’s innovative “Connective Counsel” and “Advise – Advocate – Innovate – Build” approach to client service, which looks at each client matter holistically and with an eye toward achieving the big-picture goals of corporations, small businesses, non-profits and families. She is also often called upon to contribute her expertise and creativity to assist KJK’s clients with their own marketing strategies.

Adriane’s years as a professional skier and collegiate volleyball player honed her skills in both individual achievement and team collaboration, which she puts to use in working with KJK’s attorneys and professional staff, as well as clients and civic partners.

“I try to take everything I do in a direction that demonstrates how KJK is different from other law firms. We aren’t stuffy or formal. We take a personal approach to how we deal with each client and the issues they face.” – Adriane E. DeFiore
