HOUSTON – Trial lawyers John H. Kim and Denise H. Kim of The Kim Law Firm have earned recognition in the 2022 edition of the respected peer-review guide to the nation’s top attorneys, The Best Lawyers in America, for their commercial litigation work.
This is a repeat appearance for both, with Mr. Kim first receiving honors in 2016, and Ms. Kim in 2020. Mr. Kim, founder of the law firm, is in this 29th year and balances a robust practice focused around high-stakes and complex litigation matters, while also serving on key professional committee organizations.
“John Kim is a fabulous lawyer,” one pleased client told Best Lawyers in supporting his selection.
“The Kim Law Firm has the unique ability to concisely present complex cases to jurors resulting in great verdicts for its clients,” said another commercial litigation client.
And another client said this: “I tried a contract dispute with John Kim a number of years ago. His cross examination of the other side’s main witness was something to behold.”
Earlier this year, Mr. Kim was named the 2021 National Vice President of the American Board of Trial Advocates Foundation. In March, he was appointed to the Texas Supreme Court Advisory Committee which assists the high court in developing rules and procedures for courts throughout Texas.
Ms. Kim is a former prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office who as a civil trial lawyer, focuses her practice on complex business disputes. Clients turn to her for counsel on a range of matters including construction defects, products and premises liability, insurance defense, legal malpractice, financial professional responsibility, the Deceptive Trade Practices Act and oil & gas disputes.
One client commented: “I recently tried a 3-week jury trial with John and Denise Kim representing my co-defendant. They are outstanding trial lawyers and always adhere to the highest standards of ethics and civility.”
“Called on the eve of trial, veteran trial lawyers John H. Kim and Denise H. Kim … obtained a take-nothing verdict in bet-the-company litigation that had sought over $17 million in damages plus punitive damages,” noted another pleased client of the firm.
