Business Litigation Work of John H. Kim Earns Recognition on Top Lawyer Lists

HOUSTON – John H. Kim, founder of The Kim Law Firm, is being recognized for his business litigation work by two widely respected peer-review lawyer rating services.

Mr. Kim earned selection to Texas Super Lawyers’ list of Top 100 Houston attorneys for 2017, the fourth time he has received that honor. He also is recognized in the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America.

Mr. Kim represents both plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes lawsuits in Texas, nationwide and internationally. His clients include oil and gas companies and a variety of businesses, as well as individuals harmed by dangerous products. He is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Mr. Kim has been recognized by Super Lawyers each year since 2003, the year the legal guide began rating attorneys in Texas. No more than 5 percent of lawyers in the state are chosen annually for the honor.

Nominations must be made by lawyers, and a research team verifies professional achievements and other information. Selections are made after additional review by lawyers in the same practice areas. Honorees are listed in the October issues of Texas Monthly and the Texas edition of Super Lawyers magazine.

Best Lawyers is the oldest lawyer guide in the U.S. Those previously recognized by the publication scrutinize the caliber of nominees’ work and provide feedback. Then a research team checks votes and eligibility. To learn more about Mr. Kim’s listing, visit
