Following her clerkship, she joined a nationally recognized full-service defense firm, where she litigated a variety of cases including dental malpractice, nursing home negligence, insurance coverage disputes, premises liability and professional malpractice. As a defense attorney, Kim worked with major insurance companies, gaining insights useful in representing injured people and their families.

In addition to her law degree, she earned a Certificate in Health Law. To her representation of injured people and their families, Kim brings her experience as a registered nurse who provided hands-on care to patients at home, nursing homes, and medical office settings.

"My background as a health professional allows me to understand both the technical and the personal aspects of dealing with injuries and illnesses. My experience as a defense attorney has given me an insight into the tactics and strategies used by insurance companies to limit the amounts they pay on claims. The combination gives me a unique ability to help injured people obtain the compensation they deserve."
