Great attorney who made process simple and seamless. I wish if I could choose 10 stars, very satisfied. He is very proactive and knowledgeable about the law. I was very impressed and felt being in good hands. Throughout the process, I got answers to any of queries with few hours of time. I am very satisfied with the outcome and wish him best for future.

Responsive, Quick, and Knowledge
The Kim Law Firm provided great services and I would 100% recommend them to anybody looking for an FCRA attorney. Anna, the paralegal, is amazingly helpful and quick to respond to any communication. Richard Kim kept me informed every step of the way and made sure I understood all the details of my case.

Great Service, Professional, Responsive
From the very beginning Rich was very clear on what he could do and what he couldn’t do legally. He took my case on a contingency basis and sued many defendants that were reporting inaccurate data on my credit reports. All of the incorrect information has since been removed and I was compensated. Rich is very professional and all of our communications took place virtually, by phone, and email. I would recommend the Kim Law Firm to anyone looking for a FCRA attorney.

Great Advice
Rich helped advise me through some tough legal issues. His reasoning was sound and logical. Best of all, I could tell he had my well being in mind first. Would recommend him to anybody looking for a credit repair/FCRA attorney.

Exellent
Richard is, awesome! He took care of everything to my satisfaction. Unlike some other law firms, Richard took care of me himself from beginning to end. I couldn't have asked for a better advocate. Thank you so much!

Highly Recommended!
In July of 2014 I retained the services of Richard Kim to help settle a financial dispute between a former business partner and myself. Mr. Kim quickly familiarized himself with all details of my case, conveyed a clear and concise plan of action, was always easy to reach and quick to respond, and most importantly maintained the highest standards of ethical conduct throughout the yearlong proceedings, culminating in a financial settlement in my favor. He would be my first call should I ever need to retain legal services in the future, and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing to do the same.

I'll never have another lawyer!
I have used Richard Kim’s services for a guardianship case involving a disabled sibling, and an elder abuse suit involving my mother being mistreated in a local nursing home, and I've been extremely happy with his work. His professionalism, follow-through, and doggedness in pursuing every avenue of the law are truly impressive. In the future, I have every intention of using Mr. Kim’s services again, for both personal and business-related matters. When I learned of the many honors and accolades he has already accrued in his career, I wasn’t surprised at all. I'm sure there are more to come!

Amazingly wonderful, kind and capable
My husband and I were being sued by an incredibly unscrupulous company. My husband was dealing with a life threatening illness and had to have surgery to prolong his life. After botched representation from a lawyer who was an acquaintance and my ignorance of court proceedings which upset the judge (rightfully so) Rich came in, worked over the holidays and saved me from these predators. He won our case and a judgement in our favor. He saved my marriage, gave my husband time to heal, and unraveled a mess that could've destroyed our life. He exemplifies 'due diligence'. I will consider him a friend for for life. His exemplary work ethics and professionalism are above reproach. Makes me emotional. Thank you Richard Kim. The world needs more attorneys of your character!!!

5 stars!
Mr. Kim did everything I could have asked for. He was responsive, quick, perceptive, and displayed keen judgment and perspective. He was also friendly and genuinely caring and concerned. I felt that he was right there with me from the get-go. Mr. Kim's delivery of his legal services was exemplary. With service like his, I expect that Mr. Kim will soon have more clients than he has time in the day. That would be bad for me, but I feel that others should have the chance to benefit from his professional skills. Mr. Kim told me that he values relationships with his clients, and he demonstrated this clearly in our work together.

Great Attorney
The second I spoke with Rich about my injuries, he took a personal interest in my well-being, and guided me through the legal process. With his help, I was able to more than triple the offer made by the insurance company for my accident. I definitely recommend Rich for your personal injury needs!
