Kim began her career as a general practitioner, but soon gravitated to Elder Law, Estate Planning, and related practice areas. “I chose to focus on this area of the law because I believed it would give me the opportunity to help people when they need it most… and it has,” says Kim. “Nothing gives me greater professional satisfaction than helping clients receive the long-term care they need while protecting their life savings at the same time. I also strive to help my clients remain independent for as long as possible, live their golden years in comfort and dignity, and cope during times of family crisis.”
Kim was born on Long Island and continues to reside there with her husband and two beautiful children.
