Kim McGowan is an experienced trial lawyer and managing partner of the firm’s Duluth, GA office. She represents individuals and families in serious injury and death cases resulting from car, truck and motorcycle accidents, dangerous property conditions, dram shop claims, and work-related accidents. Prior to joining the firm, Kim represented several of the state’s largest insurance companies in complex litigation involving policy coverage and claim disputes as well as subrogation actions. This insider’s view into the way insurers defend cases is a true asset to her practice today, and plays a key role in the winning strategies implemented by the firm.
Kim has tried over 60 cases, routinely producing exceptional results on behalf of clients in matters with particularly challenging legal and factual issues. (To see a sample of Kim’s cases covered in the media, see below.) While her results have often come in complex cases, her philosophy and approach to the practice of law is simple and straightforward.
“We are completely committed to providing legal representation that is honest about what we can and cannot do, utilizes every available resource to our client’s advantage, and is rooted in a willingness to prepare and execute as much as necessary to achieve justice for those we serve.” – Kim McGowan
