Sung-Yon Christine Kim
Litigation Attorney at Seattle, WA
also known as S. Christine Kim, Christine Kim
I began my legal career at Buckley and Associates in 1999 as a case manager, and later a legal assistant. Inspired by my mentor, Mr. James Buckley, giving voice to individuals that could not be ignored in their fights against the insurance industries, I followed in Mr. Buckley’s footsteps and earned my Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Oregon School of Law. While in law school, I served as a senior editor for the Oregon Review of International Law, a member of the Moot Court Board, and a judicial extern for the Honorable John V. Acosta, United States District Court, District of Oregon.
I returned to Buckley & Associates as a litigation attorney handling personal injury claims fighting insurance companies that are reluctant to fairly compensate those that are hurt through no fault of their own. I feel fortunate in being able to connect with and advocate for my clients, particularly based on my own experience of having difficulty communicating when I first came to the United States and could not speak English. I also feel fortunate in being allowed to attend Trial Lawyers College in September 2012 where I learned from and became a part of a community of passionate and dedicated lawyers who are committed in the pursuit of justice for their clients.
