good servise
i respect that man for his honest, care about getting rights back to their people, i appreciate that he comes from bellevue to meet with me in everett, so you don't have to be from bellevue to hire him, i definitely referred him to my friend's sister, i also liked that he gave me generous time on phone answering my questions even before i hire him, he understood my circumstances and worked with me about his fees.

The best attorney you can ever find .
I am in NY he is in WA. I spend a lot of time looking for answers ( many questions answers ) using AVOO because in real NY state lawyers keep big secrets with anything doesn't matter how hard you try to get help. I could not believe Mr. Andrew Y. Kim answered many of my questions and forwarded me. Thanks to him I found the way of fixing my problem ... and for free. This days having Obama care and paying to my divorce attorney in NY state I lost health insurance for over 6 month suffering Systemic scleroses disease. I feel so bad that the only my pay for Mr.Andrew help is just Thank You. The best attorney in the world. Wish he would be in NY state.

My Divorce Story
I met with Andrew Kim on September 23, 2014. I was nervous about meeting him but he has a very calm nature and made me feel comfortable. I was unclear on the divorce process since I had been married for 42 years. He was very professional and explained the pros and cons to obtaining a divorce at this time. In the end we decided to wait to start proceeding. I was very pleased that he did not try to push me towards divorce. I will definitely call Andrew Kim when I am ready to proceed and will recommend him to any one in need of his services.

Divorce and health insurance.
Andrew Y Kim helped me a lot on AVVO. I have received many answers from another lawyers who knew less then I do and could not get the right help....UNTILL Andrew showed up :) I am so impressed with his knowledge and his desire to help. I can't believe he helped me on line and for FREE.!!! I haven't sleep well for few days because of the stress. Andrew cured me. Looks like he is also a doctor on line :)) lol

Recommendation
I was injured in a car accident when the other driver rear-ended me. There wasn't much damage to my car and I didn't think much of it until I later felt some pain and stiffness in my neck and back. The other insurance paid for my car damage but said they would not pay for my medical bills and treatment. They said that my injuries could not be that bad since the damage to my car was minimal. That's when I contacted Andrew and discussed what my options were. We spent an hour going over everything and he laid out a strategy for proceeding with the claim. I was able to get the treatment for my injuries with Andrew's help and in the end settled my injury claim for a reasonable amount. This was the first time I was involved in an accident but Andrew and his office took care of everything. It was a great stress reliever for sure. I would highly recommend Andrew if you need a wonderful personal injury attorney and in fact I have already sent a couple of people I know his way!

Hard working and trusted attorney
Andrew took over a civil litigation matter from another attorney after the first attorney messed up our case. The case was in a lawsuit and we had no idea what was going on from the first attorney. Andrew immediately filed a couple of motions to get the case back on track. He took the time necessary to explain everything to us. We knew this was going to be a tough case but Andrew worked very hard preparing the case for arbitration. We are fortunate that he was our attorney and highly recommend him without any reservations. He is someone you can trust.

Excellent divorce attorney
I highly recommend Andrew for anyone that needs an excellent divorce attorney. When I was first served with the papers, I was very distraught, confused and upset. I didn't know what to do. I contacted Andrew's office and after meeting with him, I felt much better and my worries seemed to go away. The case was not easy for me and my emotions went up and down but Andrew was there every step of the way. He went above and beyond to respond to my numerous questions all times of the day. He is very knowledgeable, compassionate, patient, and effective as as my attorney. He negotiated a very reasonable settlement for me and I'm happy to start a new chapter in my life. I'm so happy to have had Andrew on my side and will recommend him to anyone that asks me.

My second greatest gift was given to me by Andrew
Andrew was so amazing. His staff was always friendly as was he. For me my divorce scared me but he worked with me to stay confidential and strong. When my divorce was finalized I thanked Andrew for the second greatest gift in my life. My first is my son and the second was my freedom back. I have recommend Andrew to one of my friends already and I will continue too.

I recommend Andrew Kim
Andrew Kim and his law firm have done an outstanding job for me. Andrew Kim Law Firm has proven to me that they are dedicated to their clients and have the best possible resources available. I have always been kept informed and am very impressed with the whole firm.

Regarding my dissolution case
I had a great experience working with Mr Andrew Kim for my dissolution case. Prior to that, I was working with another attorney, and had a very bad experience. He wasn't responsive, didn't give me enough details of the proceedings and was very difficult to work with. So I changed to Mr Andrew. And he quickly got all facts of my case and started working immediately. He was very prompt, and completely thorough, and explained to me all the details. He helped correct some mistakes made by the previous attorney. and things ended very smoothly at the end.

Great accident attorney
I want to thank Andrew Kim for his kindness. And also his staff members who worked so hard on getting the job done right. I enjoyed being kept informed and feeling like I was important and that all of my questions were answered. I loved his persistence, the honesty and the way this particular law firm runs their business. Keep up the good work!

Uncontested Divorce
I had a generally positive experience with Andrew, given it was my first experience with any attorney for personal matters. Andrew made it clear right in the begining that he would take the case only if I was sure the divorce would be uncontested. I got all the relevant advice and guidance during this process right up to the last step of going to court and getting all the papers signed, submitted and certified.

If there was a zero option I would select that.
I hired Andrew a month ago and paid him $1850 for his services and then the $260 filing fee for my parenting plan request. He was Johnny on the spot leading up to getting paid. Since then nothing. I have sent him a dozen texts, half a dozen emails with time stamps, left about 5 voicemails so far and nothing. I told him it was urgent as my son may be moved out of the state without my knowledge unless this parenting plan was completed. He may have just cost me my son. I am not rich by any means and the fact that I can count on my hard saved money to vanish for free is very insulting. Absolutely a thief. Takes your money. Disappears and never helps you.

Poor Excuse
No contact with me. No action taken on my case. Pacified me when I complained, but still no action. LOTS OF OTHER ATTORNEYS SAY HE’S INCOMPETENT AND AN EMBARRASSMENT!! Had to hire another firm! Lost my $2000 retainer to him even though he only billed one hour!

Ineffective Legal Services
Very poor choice in hiring him. Very little action on his part throughout the entire time we were working together. He did not advocate for my rights and the end result was devastating. Best advise for you today - do Not hire Andrew Kim!

Scam Attorney!!!
I can not believe this man is doing this to people!!! I hired him for a simple contempt hearing, paid him $1500 and then he went MIA!!! Nothing, no correspondence, no replies, nothing! Completely left me hanging out to dry! Would never recommend him to anyone!!

Terrible experience
I hired Andrew Kim for a very simple Child support Modification. He requested a $2k retainer. I did all of the work of getting my Ex's pay stubs and W2's. I emailed him everything, he filled out the worksheet and submitted it to court ONLINE. This process should have taken a couple weeks however he continued to stall. His response time was extremely slow, his voice mail box was always full and he clearly either didn't have time for my simple case or just didn't care. I was constantly emailing him asking for the status in which he billed me for these emails. Once he submitted it to the court it took 2 days, so all these delays had nothing to do with the courts and all to do with him. Once it was completed, and again I had to ask for the final papers because he hadn't sent them to me (he billed me for this email too) , I asked for a final invoice and money returned only to be ignored. After 3 weeks and probably 6+ emails to him I contacted the WA state bar and they got in touch with him, I heard from him the very next day. He would have probably completely written me off had they not got in contact with him. He sent over an invoice 2 weeks later and only returned $271 of my $2k that I gave him for a job that probably only took him 2-3 hours at most, he charged me $298 an hr. I DO NOT recommend Andrew Kim. I've dealt with a few attorneys in my life and he was by far the worst!!! Jessica

He Didn’t Fight For Me
Honestly I feel like he failed me, he didn’t fight for me. I paid him to represent me and instead he just filed the papers and agreed to basically everything the other person wanted. This was for a parenting plan. Out of all the things I wanted included I got nothing except the other party having every other Sunday instead of every Sunday. He failed me and I should be refunded for his lack of help. He also didn’t send me the papers until middle of June when I needed them sooner as we needed to pick our 2 week summers by the end of May. I spent money on something I could have done myself… filing my papers. Do not go to Andrew Kim for a family law attorney because he won’t fight for you, he’ll side with the other party acting as if he’s fighting for you. When you hire someone you expect them to be there for YOU and do as much as they can for you to help you in getting what you asked for and that did not happen here. If I have to go through this again I will not ever go to Andrew again as my money will simply just be stolen and not used for the intentions at hand.
