    "Top-notch" would be an understatement when describing Kim's skills as a family law attorney. I had the pleasure of working with Kim during my tour as a legal assistance attorney in San Diego. Divorce is a fact of life in the military, and the issues can get complex. Kim's was always willing to discuss a case and point me (and my client) in the right direction. When a case was too complex for the legal assistance office, those servicemembers who selected Kim as their attorney always had glowing reviews of her professionalism and advocacy of their case. Civility, professionalism, and expertise. Kim has them all.

    Having faced Kim as opposing counsel, I can say without hesitation that Kim is a top notch attorney. Her knowledge of family law is comprehensive. She is very pleasant to work with and always stays true to her word, but she is a fiery advocate for her clients in court. Any client who needs a family law attorney will be very happy they chose Kim as their counsel.
