Kim’s competitive drive dates back to her days as a collegiate hockey First Team All-American and Player of the Year. She brings the lessons learned from those days to the representation of her clients in litigation and negotiation.
On behalf of commercial clients, Kim handles a variety of matters including breach of contract, fraud, breach of warranty, civil conspiracy, and constitutional violations. Kim also defends a wide variety of construction clients in matters involving mechanics liens, construction defects, and title disputes.
Prior to joining the firm’s Construction Service Group, Kim developed a diverse legal background. She spent a year working for a Justice in the Illinois Appellate Court, followed by two years as a law clerk at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent plaintiff litigation firms, where she gained invaluable experience she uses to defend her current clients.
Kim is also a coach for Chicago-Kent’s trial advocacy team, where she provides guidance on courtroom strategy and techniques to law students, and keeps her own trial and evidentiary skills sharp. As further evidence of her ability to dive into a topic and successfully develop new skills, she also holds a United States Coast Guard Master Mariner license.
