I am Kemp Brinson, an employment law attorney in Winter Haven, Florida. This is my personal blog. If you are looking for my law practice, go to brinsonfirm.com. I’ve lived in Winter Haven since 2004.

From 2008-2014, I hosted polklawblog.com, where I wrote long, boring articles about legal issues unique to Polk County, Florida. As the years went by, I itched to write about other things, like politics, the environment, and the arts. For a while, I scratched that itch by writing for Lakeland Local, a hyper-local news site focusing on nearby Lakeland.

Now, I have stopped creating content for polklawblog, and will instead write here. Once in a while, I still may write about a boring, complex legal issue. But, on Polking Around, I’m giving myself the freedom to talk about whatever I want. Please read, share, and argue with me to your heart’s content.
