Justine Kim is an associate in the Divorce & Family and Fiduciary Litigation groups. Given the emotional nature of this field of law, she strives to put her clients at ease during these times of difficulty by helping them achieve their goals through compassion.
Justine says she aspires to handle her clients’ matters in a way that she would want her own family members’ matters to be handled. “It is important to me that clients feel comfortable working with me and that they feel heard and respected,” she notes. “I like to focus on being empathetic in my work and put myself in the shoes of my clients – it’s my job to help create a plan to protect their interests and enact sophisticated legal strategies while staying compassionate to their situation.”
Justine was previously a Burns & Levinson summer associate. In her second year at Boston College Law School, she became a Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:03 certified student attorney. Through her clinical experience at the Boston College Legal Services Lab, she assisted indigent clients in divorce and domestic violence matters in the Probate and Family Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
