Kim is also a registered nurse and has been licensed to practice in Connecticut since 1994. "My background as a healthcare professional allows me to understand both the technical and the personal aspects of dealing with injuries and illnesses.”


Kim has successfully cross-examined doctors, nurses and other medical providers, from a variety of medical specialties, including, neurology, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, cardiology, hematology, internal medicine, breast cancer, oncology, pediatrics, geriatric medicine, podiatry, radiology, interventional radiology, orthopedic surgery, emergency medicine, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic and infectious disease.


“As a nurse, I understand the medicine. This gives me an advantage in presenting expert testimony at trial and cross-examining the defense medical experts, which has led to favorable results in settlement and at trial.”
