Kim joined Elk & Elk in October of 2009 and currently leads the firm’s motion and appellate practice department. Kim has successfully argued appeals in 10 of Ohio’s 12 Appellate Districts and the Ohio Supreme Court.

Kim’s litigation practice includes personal injury, medical malpractice, and employment matters.

She has successfully litigated dozens of cases including obtaining a record verdict in Fulton County, Ohio.

Her medical malpractice experience has put her in a position to play a key role in many complex cases, including those stemming from the fertility clinic disaster at University Hospitals.

Her personal and professional interest in civil rights and discrimination work was fostered by Kim’s early affiliation with a non-profit where her services were available to those otherwise unable to afford representation. Kim continues to provide pro bono assistance in these areas through non-profit organizations as often as possible.

Kim is honored to be accepted as a member of the Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum and named as an Ohio Super Lawyer “Rising Star” since 2014.

Client Reviews

Joyan M. – August 2019

I was represented in a car accident that was not my fault from a lawyer at this company attorney Kim Young. I appreciate the thoroughness of this attorney and the compassion that she has shown me throughout the whole process. Though it was a lengthy process I will say that the outcome was very acceptable because my lawyer fought for me. Through attorney Young’s dedication and expertise, I walked away knowing that my lawyer who I hired to fight for me for justice and a fair settlement did just that. I was very happy with attorney Young’s representation of my case and would highly recommend Elk and Elk Co., Ltd to anyone seeking legal representation.
