Hee Sun helped us with our estate planning. She is very professional and thorough. She was very good at explaining the process (especially since I did not grow up here). We had put this off for a long time since it seemed like a very drawn out, complex thing. Hee Sun made it seem easy.

Would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to do their estate planning.

Named as a 2016 Northern California Rising Star by Super Lawyers, Kim is knowledgeable, friendly and kind. She represents clients all over the Bay area, has clients in Southern California (where she originally started practicing law many years ago) and has offered to meet clients in the hospital or at their home in certain situations. She is familiar with various aspects of estate planning, both legal and personal and is well informed about international asset ownership, LGBT estate planning and blended or immigrant family situations.

Hee Sun has helped my family and I through a number of legal issues.

Throughout the many years of legal work she has provided, she has always remained straight-forward, detail-oriented and efficient. (like lots of lawyers)

Unlike lots of lawyers, however, she has always carried herself in a warm/positive manner, has always been responsive, and has always been a pleasure to work with.

Ms. Kim has been helping my husband and I create our wills. Estate planning is such a difficult business as is that it is nice to have someone explain the process in a way that we can understand. It has been an eye opener on what goes into planning who will take care of our children after we pass on, trusts to protect our assets, advanced directives on health... But she has been very good at explaining everything clearly to us. It's been a pleasure to work with her.

It has been our pleasure to work with Hee Sun Kim over the past two years. She guided us through updating our trusts and wills when my husband and I got married, a process that impacted nearly every one of our existing estate documents. Her up-to-date knowledge of estate planning and how it interfaces with probate and other legal issues were evident throughout. Her care in drafting documents, attention to detail and her patience when working with us made the process an enjoyable one.

Kim is very knowledgable and pleasant to work with. She gives her clients her full attention and truly listens to their concerns. Although tax and estate laws can seem extremely complicated, Kim is great at breaking a complex legal concepts into simple terms so you can understand the choices available to you. You leave her office feeling more educated on the law and confident that your estate is in good hands.

I have worked with Hee Sun Kim ("Kim") three times during the past two years. She created a living trust for me and my husband after we were married and has assisted me with the administration of two trusts for which I was a trustee (one of which is current).

My husband and I appreciate how Kim listens carefully before responding with useful advice. And she works efficiently: For my recent trust administration, she covered a surprising number of tasks during our initial meeting. As a trustee, it is comforting and valuable to have her professional guidance.

Hee Sun Kim is very knowledgeable about estate planning law. She is generous with her time and is very quick in replying to email or phone calls. She is in the city (San Francisco), but she has helped set up trusts for people in the Peninsula and other Bay areas. Always is very kind and gives great explanation so understanding one's estate planning documents is not daunting or overwhelming.

Kim just completed our living trust and it was a great experience working with her. She took the time to get to know us and to understand our needs. She explained in very clear terms a variety of options, and the pro's/con's related to each. She is very knowledgeable and responded to all of our emails and calls in a very timely manner. My wife and I feel very comfortable knowing that she will be our attorney going forward and that our estate planning documents will be updated as needed. I had high expectations of her given that a close friend of mine had recommended Kim and I can say that she certainly met and exceeded our expectations.

I have never met a lawyer so truly passionate about what she does. Hee Sun (Kim) has both broad and comprehensive knowledge of the law as well as specific knowledge of her particular specialization in estate law. She gives her clients her very best work, and she always wants to make sure they are comfortable with and understand the what and why behind their estate plans. Kim will always take the time out to answer any questions her clients have and to make sure things are done correctly. Kim is a trustworthy, amazing lawyer, and I can't say enough about her!

I have known Kim for about 3 years. We had a mutual client and her knowledge of estate planning impressed me enough so that I could refer other clients to her. She has a great work ethic, customer service and an understanding of client needs. I enjoy working with her and appreciate how she can understand the situation for estate transfer and develop some plans to provide for an easy transfer of assets to the beneficiary.

I am the father of two children. I've heard that in California you have to go to court if someone becomes incapacitated or dies and there is no estate plan set up. I met with Hee Sun Kim (Kim) about what I should do for my family. I could tell quite easily from our discussions that Kim is very passionate and knowledgeable about estate planning law. She provides both hourly and flat rate fee arrangements, and is willing to travel for those with mobility issues who wish to avoid having to come into the city.

She may run her own law firm, but this is after many years of working with bigger law firms that specialize in immigration matters, foreign assets, LGBT issues and sophisticated taxable estates or family structures. She never talks down to you. And she addresses each of your concerns and questions with great care. And her explanations of the complex trust world gives you confidence your documents are being prepared by a very capable, knowledgeable attorney. That she is not as old is an advantage because you know it is likely she will be around to help your children when they need to take over.

Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to get to know Hee Sun Kim (who goes by Kim) in a variety of settings, including working with and consulting with her on a number of cases (as a colleague, not as a client). She is very knowledgeable about estate planning and administration, and is very proactive about keeping up with changes in the law. Kim is also friendly, kind, approachable, and extremely ethical. She works hard for her clients, keeps her cases moving forward efficiently, and holds herself to a very high standard. I would not hesitate to work with her or send a client to her.
