Attorney Kimberly Wilson White is the Managing Shareholder and founder of Wilson Law, P.A. She is dedicated to representing individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries due to negligent drivers, physician and hospitals; dangerous drugs and defective medical devices; or, premises liability. Additionally, Ms. White has litigated hundreds of mass tort cases in multidistrict litigation (MDLs) at both the state and federal level throughout the United States.
Kim strives to provide all clients with a high standard of legal representation, taking the time to listen to her clients and thoroughly understand the facts of each individual case. She treats her clients with the care and respect they deserve while providing an aggressive litigation strategy against large companies, including pharmaceutical manufacturers, corporations, trucking companies, and hospitals and healthcare providers. Kim uses her knowledge and experience to help regular citizens receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Kim was appointed to the consolidated MDL Plaintiff’s Steering Committee involving Pelvic Repair Systems Product Liability Litigation by the Honorable Joseph R. Goodwin, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. This multidistrict litigation involves lawsuits against manufacturers of dangerous transvaginal mesh devices implanted in women for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Kim has represented women injured by these products since 2011.
For this, and more, she has been featured in interviews by The Wall Street Journal, CBS Nightly News with Dan Rather, the Ladies’ Home Journal, and numerous other local television shows for representing plaintiffs hurt by defective medical devices and dangerous drugs.
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 her mother was a stay-at-home housewife, she was always 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 of Public Health (M.P.H) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011. Kim has one daughter who graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attends University of Virginia School of Law in Charlottesville, Virginia.
