John C. Kim

Professionally, I learned the theories and concepts of economics, business, and the law in college and law school. For over 20 years now I have worked as an attorney in New York City and have operated a busy practice for 15. Across multiple practice areas over this span of time, I learned the mechanics – the nuts and bolts – of how best to serve my clients. JCKLAW has represented successfully thousands – yes, thousands – of clients. In doing so, we apply the law in helping our clients achieve real life goals – whether in buying a business or house, seeking reorganization of their debts, or having their O-1 visas approved, and with a caring touch. Make no mistake though – we bring experienced, hard-nosed lawyering and in depth knowledge to the table in all areas of our practice.

Personally, those who know me know I love art (almost as much as I love the law), specifically filmmaking. Apart from my professional life, I even carved out time to dabble in filmmaking myself over the years (even winning a few awards in the short film format in local competitions). In many ways movies were my first education, before my education as an attorney. To this day, they continue to teach me the primacy of empathy and help bring new perspectives to my life and to the application of the law for the benefit of our clients.

JCKLAW is a coming together of my professional AND personal identities. I am not a big fan of tropes used in marketing but our PASSION PERSPECTIVE RESULTS was not the product of a random motto generator, the words reflect who I am as a person and as an attorney.
