Covington, Washington (July 6, 2016) – Esteemed criminal defense lawyer Attorney Kim E. Hunter was recently named Special Conflict Counsel to the City of Auburn, WA and the City of Renton, WA. She was reappointed to the rule last June of this year. Attorney Hunter also holds this position for the City of Des Moines, WA, and has served the city for many years.
The role of Special Conflict Counsel is to take over cases that are ongoing if a public defender could not continue in a case due to its complexity or in the event that some kind of conflict arises. The position requires handling a case on short notice and coming up to speed quickly which is something not every lawyer can do very well.
“It’s honor and privilege to be selected again as Auburn’s Special Conflict Counsel. I’m looking forward to serving the City of Auburn in this capacity as I have also done for many years for Des Moines and have also just accepted for the City of Renton”, Attorney Hunter says.
Attorney Kim E. Hunter’s practice has an emphasis in DUI, domestic violence and criminal defense areas which makes her appointment to the position of Special Conflict Counsel the most logical choice. She has a reputation for being a zealous and compassionate advocate for all her clients dealing with misdemeanor charges. Her experience of representing clients from Auburn, Puyallup, Tacoma, Kent, Federal Way and other nearby cities in Washington State comes highly valued for Ms. Hunter’s new responsibilities.
Beyond her experience representing clients, Attorney Hunter has earned prestigious accolades as well. For five consecutive years (2010-2015), she was named Washington Rising Star, a title only given to some of the most notable up-and-coming attorneys, by Super Lawyers Magazine. Recently, she was also awarded the Washington Super Lawyer name by Super Lawyers Magazine, and again in January 2016. She is also a proud recipient of the Washington State Bar Association’s Pro Bono Award this year, an award she has been honored with every year since 2004.
