Bio

Kim House focuses her practice on the defense of catastrophic loss matters, including product liability cases, construction and industrial accidents, premises liability, hotel liability, medical malpractice and other general casualty matters.

Kim earned her J.D. from Wake Forest School of Law in 2008.  She was a Student Trial Bar Member and co-chaired the Zeliff Trial Competition in 2008.  She earned her B.A., cum laude, in Political Science from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 2004.

Upon graduating law school from Wake Forest, Kim worked at a boutique construction litigation and products liability firm in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  During that time, she represented architects, engineers and manufacturers of construction materials in all phases of litigation from pleadings to discovery to trial and appeal.  With her colleagues, Kim acted as national counsel for a leading window manufacturer, coordinating litigation with local counsel to effectively and favorably resolve claims throughout the country.

Kim sat second chair at trial defending an architect against a construction defect claim by a developer for $9 million.  Pre-trial the demand was reduced to $3 million, but after two weeks of trial, the twelve-member jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the defendant.  The verdict was featured in North Carolina Lawyers Weekly.  Kim also successfully represented an architecture firm at arbitration against a developer with a multi-million dollar claim.  After arbitration, the matter was resolved for under $10,000.   

Ms. House is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Kim has been selected as a 2016 Pennsylvania Rising Star by Super Lawyers and Law & Politics Magazine.  Rising Stars are the top 2.5 percent of attorneys in Pennsylvania who are 40 years old and younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less.
