About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Since first stepping in front of a jury, John felt a calling to fight for justice in the courtroom. Often times, the courtroom represents the last resort to resolve a grievous situation. John has dedicated his career to helping folks navigate the precarious litigation process and bring justice on behalf of victims. He is a firm believer that every person deserves the best legal advocate in the courtroom – and relying on hard work, trusted experience, and trial acumen will help achieve the justice his clients seek.

John has extensive experience in civil and criminal litigation. Prior to starting the JK Law Firm, LLC, John served as claims counsel for a Fortune 500 insurance company, where he successfully defended all facets of personal injury and tort litigation brought against his clients. He previously worked for a boutique law firm in Atlanta focusing on the defense of general, complex, motor vehicle, and trucking liability cases.

Prior to transitioning to civil litigation, John served as an Assistant District Attorney in Spalding and Fulton Counties and successfully prosecuted numerous felony cases through trial. Following law school, he gained insight into the judicial process by clerking for Floyd County Superior Court Judges. John’s passion for the courtroom dates back to law school, where he was a participant of the Prosecutorial Justice Program under the Third-Year Practice Act. During law school, he served as President of the Asian Law Students Association and the Education Law Students Association.

John is a Northern Virginia (NoVA) transplant who migrated south for law school and has called Georgia home ever since. He received a B.A. in Political Science from Virginia Tech and received his J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law.

John lives in Gwinnett County and enjoys playing golf, tinkering with his Triumph motorcycle, and is an avid Hokies and Bulldogs fan.

Hired for traffic violations
John was fairly communicative and appears to be readily available for consults at any time. This was my first time hiring a lawyer and John was patient and informative. Just three business days before my court case, I hired John and he was able to negotiate my traffic tickets to a very fair outcome.

Very Satisfied Client
John Kim is a very professional and competent lawyer. He responds in a timely manner and gave the best legal advice for my situation. I was in a tight situation at work and the owner threatened to throw us in jail. Even though I was ready to accept the punishments, I wanted to make sure I would be punished fairly. That is when I contacted John to help me with legal advice. He expertly explained my situation and all the possible outcomes. Even with an already busy case load, he made sure to have time for me and was always upfront. His knowledge of criminal law and intricate strategy is what gave me peace of mind at night. I strongly recommend John Kim to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer.

The best lawyer!
John went above and beyond for my case! Not only did he ensure a great result he definitely delivered! I was in an accident and was so stressed but I didn't have to worry about a thing! He took care of me every step of the way. I'm so happy I went with him. Talk about stress free service!

Car Accident (Hit & Run)
Recently, I had a hit & run accident in which a car suddenly cut in from the next lane crashed into the side of my car and ran away. John Kim led me everything I needed, from injury treatment, repairing damaged cars. And most importantly he closed my case with a favorable result through good negotiation with the insurance company. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Attorney John Kim once again for his skillful negotiation with the insurance company based on his many case experiences while working as a district attorney and in a large insurance company.

Car Accident
I was very worried after my car accident but Lawyer JK made sure everything resolved smoothly. I also thank him for being so kind and explaining everything in Korean so I understand. If I need a lawyer again, I will call Lawyer JK. Thank you!

Well above and beyond
First I wanted to express my gratitude to Mr. John Kim for helping recently. We hired John for aggravated assault charge. We were never involved in any other legal actions before, and was completely lost. After having consultation with John, we knew that he would be the best lawyer to represent us. He gave his insights on possible outcomes, and showed us different tactics to approach each individual situations. He really cared for us not only as a client, but as a person as well. John was always available when we had any questions and he would always give his best advice to us. As a result, John was able to dismiss our case and we couldn't be happier about the outcome. I highly recommend John to anyone seeking legal advise.
