Houston Lawyer John Kim Among Select ABOTA Faculty at Harvard Law

HOUSTON – Accomplished Houston attorney John H. Kim recently served on a team of the nation’s most talented trial lawyers chosen to provide young lawyers with intensive courtroom training at Harvard Law School.

Mr. Kim, founder of The Kim Law Firm, joined the faculty of the National Trial College of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) to help expose young attorneys from across the country through the rigors of all aspects of trial work for one week in July.

Nationally known for his high-stakes litigation wins for both plaintiffs and defendants, Mr. Kim is a past president of ABOTA’s Houston chapter. He and the other faculty members led the students in exercises encompassing all aspects of civil jury trials, from effective jury selection to persuasive opening statements and closing arguments.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for these young lawyers still early in their careers,” said Mr. Kim. “And it is energizing for me to work with them and the other faculty members, who are some of the nation’s most gifted courtroom lawyers. It was a thrill.”

Mr. Kim focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation and has experience in breach of contract, trademark disputes, product liability and catastrophic injury/death trials. He is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

According to the National Trial College, Mr. Kim is “best known for his knack with juries, his wicked cross-examination skills and his unusual approach to the law, even having animations on his award-winning firm website.”

Mr. Kim and his firm represent defendants and plaintiffs nationwide in cases involving oil & gas disputes, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, securities claims, tortious interference and trade secret actions. The Kim Law Firm has recovered more than a half-billion dollars for clients directly and through counterclaims backed by aggressive litigation. The firm represents entrepreneurs, business start-ups, mid-sized companies, and established national and international corporations in everything from contract and complex business disputes to insider trading allegations to product liability and intellectual property cases.
