    Don Kilmer

    Don Kilmer’s non-fiction writing has been limited to legal briefs and essays. Any fiction in those endeavors was unintentional. As an attorney-at-law his federal practice concentrates on the founders’ interpretation of the Second Amendment.


    He has successfully litigated significant civil rights cases in the federal court system on the First Amendment Freedom of Speech and Association, Fourth Amendment violations by government actors, Fifth Amendment protections, and Eighth Amendment principles.


    He also represents persons accused of weapons crimes in federal and state courts. He advises and represents businesses in the firearms industry and assists those businesses with regulatory hearings and compliance with federal firearm regulations.


    The purposefully speculative prose presented on this website are Don Kilmer’s first forays in writing for entertainment.

They live in Arlington, Mass. with their children near the historic Battle Road Trail to Concord. His favorite horse is named Nero.
