For twenty years, Kim has consistently provided sound legal guidance to her clients through trusted and honest representation. Kim enjoys working with clients to reach an amicable resolution of their family law matters when possible, yet vigorously advocates for them in the courtroom when litigation becomes necessary.
Kim served as clerk to the Honorable Jane Marum Roush of the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia, for one year following her graduation from law school. Upon completing her clerkship, Kim was an attorney with The Susan Hicks Group and an adjunct professor at George Mason University School of Law for many years. She moved to Tennessee in 2006, where she continued practicing family law as an of counsel member of the Susan Hicks Group and with a domestic relations firm in Tennessee, where she also developed a practice in trusts and estates, advising clients desiring to protect their smaller estates. In 2013, Kim moved back to Northern Virginia and has been engaged in the practice of family law and estate planning since her return. She also helps educate her colleagues through her numerous articles and legal seminar outlines.
Kim received a B.A. magna cum laude from the University of Alabama, an M.S. from Florida State University, and a J.D. from George Mason University School of Law, where she was a member of the editorial board of the George Mason Law Review.
