Portland Private Investigator
Kim is an amazing investigator and brings a wealth of experience to the team. She has worked as a Legal Assistant/Paralegal for the past 20+ years. In 2012, Kim became a DPSST licensed Investigator. She was fortunate enough that right after becoming licensed the attorney’s she worked for saw her potential as an investigator and immediately started giving her difficult cases. Within her first year of being licensed she had already worked Ballot Measure 11 and Jessica’s Law cases, along with various other felony cases.
Kim has worked hundreds of criminal and juvenile cases, including Murder (Attempted Murder, Aggravated Murder, and Criminally Negligent Homicides), Sexual Abuse (including Jessica's Law matters), and various other felony and misdemeanor cases. She also conducts home visits on behalf of the attorney’s that represent the children currently placed in DHS Foster Care system.
Most of the clients she works with are incarcerated which requires close one-on-one work within the jail and/or prison systems. Whether it be a hardened criminal or a first-time offender, she believes, that no matter the crime, the client deserves an investigator that shows respect, who is non-judgmental, and who is dedicated to leaving no stone unturned.
On September 10, 2018, Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer (Invasive Ductal Carcinoma) and her life as she knew it was turned upside-down. While it has been a long, difficult road, Kim is back to work full-time and feeling better.
Kim was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. She is a dog-mom to her three French Bulldogs, Murph, Frances and Penny Lou, who can be found in the office with her almost every day. Kim’s hobbies include her “dog babies”, spending time outdoors, camping, fishing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
