Emily J. Kim is an attorney at Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy working in the Family Support and Health Care Program.

As a law student, Kim represented clients through two law school clinics on issues related to health insurance, special education, tax law, and family law.

“I work for the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy because our low-cost legal services help people break down barriers to health, financial security, and advancement that they played no role in erecting in the first place. I cannot imagine a more exciting or meaningful career than serving my community.”
