About Kim

Kim focuses her practice on both civil litigation and family law. She works closely with Duncan and Chris Griffiths in several fields, such as real estate disputes, insurance bad faith, construction defects, commercial litigation, and other business torts. Kim enjoys problem-solving, writing, and using creative strategies to help clients overcome their legal challenges, no matter how complicated. Her clients have included individuals, homeowners, companies, business owners, and community associations. Regardless of the case, Kim prioritizes each client’s needs and approaches each task with an open mind.

Kim also has considerable experience working on both civil litigation and complex family law appeals. For example, Kim was instrumental in a case involving residential real property and Colorado’s spurious lien statute. On top of obtaining a favorable result for the client, the Colorado Court of Appeals selected the outcome for publication. More recently, Kim helped a client recover hundreds of thousands of dollars in prejudgment interest after a trial court erroneously denied such relief.

Before joining the firm, Kim worked as a law professor’s teaching assistant to help law students improve their legal writing skills. She also gained experience in litigation while serving as a student attorney in a consumer dispute clinic. Her law school even selected her to compete in an annual negotiation competition hosted by the American Bar Association.

Finally, Kim’s ability to overcome legal obstacles primarily stems from her athletics background. She has run marathons, worked as a ski instructor, and even a contestant on American Ninja Warrior Season 7. Outside of work, Kim enjoys skiing, traveling, running with her dog, and spending time with friends and family.

“Every client deserves an attorney who is committed to excellence every step of the way.”

Reviews 

Kim was a human first, lawyer second. She was empathetic to my situation, and laid out everything in terms that I could understand.”

Former Client – August 2020, Yelp Review

Even after everything was said and done, she checked up on me, wishing me well. I truly wish I could describe how phenomenal Kim is, but I can’t even begin to scratch the surface.

Former Client – May 2020, AVVO Review

Through much hard work from the entire team, a vigorous representation of my interests and a very effective design and implementation of legal strategy, Griffiths Law was able to get my case resolved. I cannot say enough good words about Griffiths Law.
