Amber Kim is unrelenting in her efforts to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients. For seven years, prior to and during her law school studies, Amber worked for Lanak & Hanna in various capacities as a key member of several practice groups, including contractor surety, probate surety, and creditors’ rights. During this time, Amber developed skills that allowed her to take on increasing responsibility and increasingly complex matters, all giving her a significant edge as she starts her career as a lawyer.
Amber’s dedication and work ethic are shown by the fact that she not only completed law school while working at Lanak & Hanna, but also completed separate court work to obtain a paralegal certificate. In law school, Amber was the recipient of the Witkin Award for Academic Excellence, in Consumer Law and Finance, in recognition of her achieving the highest score in the class. Amber was also a contributing writer for the Western State College of Law Student Bar Association’s newspaper, “The Precedent.”
Amber is public-service focused, regularly participating in philanthropic events, including charity walks.
