Knowlegeable, efficient and personal
Ms. Kim was so professional and experienced in all areas of bankruptcy. She guided my personal bankruptcy from a chapter 11 and then to a chapter 7 to the best possible outcome while at the same time protecting my corporation from creditors. She is such a pleasure to work with and was always there to answer any questions. I highly recommend her to anyone that I know that needs bankruptcy protection. rm

Chapter 7
I referred my mom to Caroline because she had previously worked on one of my associate's Chapter 13 case in the past that was successfully discharged. The stress of the current economy had led my mom into filing for Chapter 7. Going into this, we were very nervous as we did not know what to expect as my mom was a self-employed small business owner. She educated us, guided us seamlessly through the whole process and reassured us of a positive outcome. She explained every step thoroughly and was very quick to answer any questions we had. The case was discharged and my mom and I are very satisfied with her work. I highly recommend her to anyone that may need this type of help as she very straight forward and very knowledgeable in this field.

Professionalism!
Thank you Ms. Kim!! You made me feel at ease in a stressful situation. I appreciate your knowledge of the law, and especially the Long Beach court system. Ms. Kim helped clean up my case files by applying the appropriate code/law to each of my supplements, which made the process in court very efficient.

A+ Divorce Attorney
Caroline restored my faith in the divorce process. She listened to my needs and fought for my rights as a Father. Her attention to detail and experience is second to none. I got everything I wanted in court and as a law enforcement professional, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to represent them during this emotional and stressful process.

Bankruptcy - Chapter 7
Caroline Kim guided me and handled my bankruptcy case professionally and thoroughly from beginning to end. I had zero knowledge of the process and was so worried about how everything would work out. Caroline educated me, answered all my questions, and made sure to update me throughout the process. My case has now been resolved and I am so grateful to have hired Caroline as my attorney. She really is out to help people. I highly recommend her!

Carolyn is a professional and knowledgeable attorney that was able to get me all the parenting time that I asked for from the court. She filed every thing timely with the court. Never over charged for her services and always followed up on messages that I left. I’d highly recommend her to any father looking to spend more time w there children.

Exceeded all my expectations!
I want to first mention I started my divorce in Nov 2020. Due to pandemic delays my petition did not move forward as fast as I would have liked. My lawyer at the time did not give me straight answers or guided me regarding the process. I had two court dates and my lawyer could not attend the hearings to assist me. As a result, I lost precious time and money that I can never get back. Finally, in April 2022 I decided to work with Kim Law Group. I was immediately impressed with Caroline’s work ethics. Most importantly, I wanted my case to be a priority for her. I wanted my lawyer to show up for me in court to help me get results. Caroline has filed all the necessary paperwork: RFOs, Discovery Requests, etc. We have not wasted time since she took my case. She is very clear regarding expectations and she takes my case seriously. I had a court date at the beginning of this month. Caroline exceeded all my expectations! She was ready, she knew all the details of my case and what I wanted to get out of the hearing. She had her notes up to date and when the judge asked her for specific details, she was able to provide, dates, times and name of the person whom she had spoken to regarding the issue. What a way to show up for her clients! The opposing lawyer could not refute any information Caroline provided the judge with because she had detailed notes about their conversations. The judge granted my bifurcation of marriage request. This was my first victory and I could not have done it without Caroline’s help! Unfortunately, there are some issues we need to go to trial to resolve. However, we already got the date of the trial and I feel confident Caroline will once again be there for me and get me results. My divorce has been stressful I do believe all divorces are but ever since Caroline represents me, I feel less stressed because Caroline is there for me 24/7. Thank you so much Caroline for everything you do!

Great family attorney!
not sure where to start from, alot to share. Caroline Kim family Law attorney handled our child custody case. She literally took our initial case in a sunday, hours before court appearance, was not an easy road but in every court appearance she used to give her all and she always fought for my parental rights. Today finally after almost two years we feel lighter, less stress and super content and happy with our final court appearance. But more than anything much gratitud and appreciation towards her amd her firm. In my books Caroline is accomplishing with her mission in life very well. not only her knowledge, her confidence, her professionalism, her caring for other but yet her loyalty she has and keeps to her clients makes her different from many other attorneys out there. Besides that, when comes to finances she is SUPER understandable and easy to work with. She offers options to pay. She doesn't quit on her clients due to money reasons. Caroline is a complete package! I will recommend her sevices to anyone that is looking or in need or family law representation!. Last but not least, shout out to Jessica, her paralegal. like any office, there is always someone behind the scenes that we don’t see often but that we bug alot. based in my experience, I can tell that they both make a great team!!!! thank you both for EVERYTHING!!!!

Efficient
Easy to talk to and very flexible with arranging appointments for meet-up, discussion, issue, etc. Easy to get in touch via phone and email. Her assistant Jessica was also patient in explaining things to me and they will always provide e-mail copies of documents needed to be signed so it saved me time from travelling to their office just for a signature. Ms. Caroline does not like wasting time and she will solve your case as soon as possible, and in your favor of course. Will recommend :) Thank you, Atty. Kim!
