ALWAYS on Your Side

My name is Dawna Kim. Licensed in both California and Texas since 1993, I have been helping ordinary citizens accused of crimes for more than 25 years. Let me help you to resolve your legal issues. I will be on your side.

Just because you have been arrested, it does not mean that you are guilty of the crime charged.


Don’t let anyone treat you like a convicted criminal.


I can help you to resolve your legal issue.  I will be on your side.

Have you been arrested recently?

Was it the worst day in your life?

Now you must defend against the criminal charge brought against you. Whether it’s your very first arrest or your 10th, you should hire a lawyer you feel most comfortable with; one who will listen to you and bring you all of your options so that you can decide what’s right for you. One that you can trust to be on your side.
