Life

Kim’s mission is to provide her clients with the highest-quality legal representation in a compassionate, caring, and respectful manner. Her clients know from day one that she is their voice when they are seeking fair treatment, recognition and compensation for injuries caused by negligent corporations, pharmaceutical companies, and health care providers. Kim understands that the only thing that makes a regular citizen equal to a powerful company is the justice system.

Kim was recently appointed by the Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, to the consolidated MDL Plaintiff’s Steering Committee involving Pelvic Repair Systems Product Liability Litigation against manufacturers of transvaginal mesh products. She has been interviewed by CBS Nightly News with Dan Rather, The Wall Street Journal, Ladies’ Home Journal, and many local television stations regarding her representation of plaintiffs injured by dangerous and defective medical devices and drugs.

Kimberly is a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ). In this position Kim has spent a great deal of time helping to ensure that North Carolina residents can access the courts when injured by the negligence of pharmaceutical companies. Kim has an “AV Preeminent Rating” from Martindale-Hubbell and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This means that Kim has obtained settlement amounts in excess of $2 million dollars for individual clients.

Kim grew up in southern West Virginia as one of nine children. Her father was a coal miner for 33 years and an active member in the United Mine Workers of America. Although Kim’s mother was a stay-at-home housewife, she was at all times in charge of running the household including managing the finances. Both of her parents placed a high value upon education and insisted that their children go to college. Today, all of her siblings are professionals in health care, pharmaceutical industry, education or law. Kim received her undergraduate (1991) and law (1995) degrees from West Virginia University and a Master’s in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011. Kim has one daughter who attends the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Outside of practicing law, Kim enjoys going to rock concerts, seeing movies, book club, exercising, traveling with her daughter and spending time with family and friends. She has seen the Rolling Stones live in concert in four different decades and on two different continents.
