Knowing the Client’s Needs From the Inside Out
Kim’s career path is not typical for most attorneys, and that’s been a boon to her labor and employment practice. Her first professional stint was in corporate retail, where as a human resources manager she dealt firsthand with the issues facing corporate clients. With years of experience as a plaintiffs’ attorney, she can play a savvy devil’s advocate in counseling clients on employment and litigation matters in wage and hour class actions and in individual discrimination and/or harassment cases. When she’s not serving clients, she serves on the Leadership Council for the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice. Her professional accomplishments and leadership in the community have earned her distinctions that include the Top 40 Under 40 National Black Lawyers, making her one of Pillsbury’s rising stars.
