Attorney Steven Kim is a zealous advocate for his clients. As the principal attorney of the Law Office of Steven S. Kim, attorney Kim takes great pride in the top reputation he has garnered in the greater Boston legal community for his direct, even handed, honest, and no nonsense approach to tackling the multitude of legal challenges that his clients have faced.
Steven Kim attended Boston College for his undergraduate education. He subsequently received a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration also from Boston College prior to attending Law School at Boston College Law School. While he was a law student, the tragic events of September 11, 2001 occurred which influenced the trajectory of his life. With a renewed desire to serve our country in the post 9/11 era, Steven Kim joined the military. He is a veteran, and former army officer, Captain, Judge Advocate, having deployed and served honorably in the war in Afghanistan with the 26th Yankee Brigade of the Massachusetts Army National Guard.
Steven Kim started his legal career as a law clerk to the Justices of the Superior Court of Massachusetts, upon graduating from Boston College Law School. As a law clerk to some of the brightest and seasoned trial judges in the courts of the Commonwealth, at the outset of his formative years as a legal practitioner, Steven Kim was able to form the foundation of his legal research and writing skills and learned to craft legal arguments and persuade others effectively from his direct experiences working with the very judges who preside over the courtrooms of Massachusetts.
After clerking, Mr. Kim began is career as a litigator and trial attorney as an Assistant District Attorney for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office in Boston. As a prosecutor in the busy urban courts within Suffolk County, Mr. Kim honed his skills as a courtroom lawyer and gained familiarity with the nuances of the different courts necessary to be a confident, and seasoned trial attorney who does not fear taking a case to trial in any court in Massachusetts.
Attorney Kim’s formal legal education and early career track naturally allowed him to develop as a litigator known not just for his effective research and written motion advocacy, but also as a formidable trial attorney with an instinct for reading the pulse of a jury. Over his fifteen plus years as an attorney, Mr. Kim has evolved his practice, transferring the skills he learned as a trial attorney in the criminal law context to civil litigation as well and has become a capable and trusted lawyer for many of his clients’ diverse litigation and transaction needs.
He has successfully prosecuted and defended hundreds of criminal cases that run the full spectrum of seriousness ranging from petty theft and shoplifting to more serious charges like assault and battery and drunk driving/operating under the influence of liquor, to very serious crimes of violence and sexual assault, drug related crimes, and even complex “paper crimes” and “white collar” offenses such as fraud, identity fraud, conspiracy and larceny.
Attorney Kim has also successfully represented clients in civil litigation matters involving contract disputes, claims of fraud, unjust enrichment, consumer protection violations, personal injury, and other disputes involving large sums of money. He has successfully obtained many favorable negotiated settlements in serious bodily injury cases over the years, as well as settlements and other successful outcomes for his individual and business clients in lawsuits over business disputes. He has tried to verdict several complex civil cases. He has also successfully brought cases on behalf of individuals who have suffered severe violations of their constitutional civil rights at the hands of law enforcement and corrections officers. He regularly practices in all of the courts throughout the Commonwealth, in both Federal and State Courts (including the Superior Courts and the District Courts and the Boston Municipal Courts).
Steven Kim also has developed a niche in the last decade representing individuals in residential real estate transactions. He brings the same direct and zealous approach from his litigation practice to his real estate clients, offering a refreshingly client centered, “white glove” attention to detail and easily accessible approach to representing buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of their homes. He intentionally limits the number of clientele he serves in his real estate practice so that he can individually cater to and attend to each transaction personally and have the ability to respond to his clients with little wait time.
Aside from the assurance that you’re in capable hands evidenced by his resume of cases and prior experiences handling difficult actions and transactions, trusting your legal needs to the Law Office of Steven S. Kim will mean that you are engaging an attorney and a legal team that is dedicated to the often touted, but very seldom delivered promise that you will be represented by and associated with honest and good people who have your best interests in mind, an attorney who still believes in the bond of his word and the seal of his handshake.
