    I had the distinct privilege of working with Kim throughout our legal education. Kim is unquestionably a rising star in the field! Her knowledge of the vast idiosyncrasies of the complex issues of wills and business law is thwarted by few. Her tenacity, intellect, and devotion to her clients result in outstanding achievements. Without reservation, I give Kim my highest endorsement.
