vCard

Kim has represented clients in complex litigation and appellate matters for more than 20 years. She has broad experience handling declaratory judgment actions, defending bad faith and extra-contractual claims and analyzing complex contractual issues. Kim also assists her insurance clients by drafting coverage opinions, reservations of rights and denial letters.  She has defended first-party and third-party claims in cases involving commercial general liability, property, auto, homeowners and professional liability policies. She has particular familiarity with the construction and trucking industries.

In each representation, Kim frames and argues the complicated issues and positions that her clients seek to communicate in a manner that is easy to understand for judges and juries alike. Kim’s efforts are responsible for the development of favorable case law positively affecting the insurance industry. In a recent lawsuit, a Texas appellate court expressly approved a jury charge Kim drafted in a Hurricane Ike case on an issue not previously addressed by the Texas Pattern Jury Charges.

Kim has handled civil appeals across the state and in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and has written more than 75 appellate briefs during her career in a wide variety of practice areas.
