Kimberley Motley left her husband and three kids in the US in order to work as a defence lawyer in Kabul, Afghanistan. Today she is the first and only foreign lawyer who litigates in Afghanistan's courts. For over five years now, human rights cases and troubled expats have motivated her to stay, but personal threats and general conditions in the country make it harder and harder for Kimberly to continue her work.
