“ Suffering a serious injury has a tremendous impact not only on you but your family as well. Your focus should be on your rehabilitation and not dealing with insurance and legal issues. My role is to shift that burden from your and your family to me and my experienced staff so that you can concentrate on what is most important – your recovery. ”

Noteworthy Cases

  • Coroner’s Inquest into death of Mitchell Temple-Medhurst. Kim represented the family of this child who drowned while a resident in a children’s care facility.
  • Stephen v. Stawecki. Kim, together with partner Mark Lerner, represented the plaintiff in a fatality claim under Section 61 of the Family Law Act. The issue was whether the client met the definition of spouse having not lived together with the deceased for three years prior to death. The action was successful.
  • Saint Clair v. Anello et al. Kim acted on behalf of a woman who discovered a mass in her breast and was ultimately diagnosed with breast cancer. The action was successful with the court finding that an earlier diagnosis would have resulted in an improved outcome.
  • Altomonte v. Matthews. Kim successfully argued on behalf of a plaintiff with chronic pain that her injuries met the Bill 59 threshold despite the fact that she was able to continue with her employment.
