WELCOME TO THE
LAW OFFICES OF ERNEST J. KIM
For over a quarter century, we have assisted countless families like yours with their estate planning and succession needs. Many of our clients consulted with multiple attorneys before choosing to work with our firm, and some of our best clients are lawyers themselves. The reason for our success is that we continually research best practices in the estate planning field, and can provide more creative options and strategies to meet our clients’ goals.
The sudden illness or death of a loved one is an unthinkable event and a lifechanging hardship for the family to overcome. Should your family also have to worry about going to court, paying bills, and paying taxes too? The greatest gift you can give your family is your guidance and planning, to help them through the most difficult times in their lives.
