South King, Washington (September 2, 2015) – Kim E. Hunter, a reputable criminal defense and DUI attorney serving Kent and neighboring locations, is honored to have been named a Super Lawyer, after being a Rising Star for the preceding four years. The recognition was bestowed by Super Lawyers, a nationwide rating service of noteworthy practitioners who have achieved high levels of peer recognition and exceptional legal track records. An article about Ms. Hunter’s recent achievement can be found in the latest print edition of Super Lawyer Magazine.
The Super Lawyer title is given to attorneys who have shown commendable dedication to their fields of practice. Candidates aren’t merely nominated by peers; they are voted upon. An appointed committee then chooses which nominees will be presented, taking into account factors like special cases, dismissals, and acquittals, as well as the lawyer’s contribution to the community, feedback from clients, and relationships to judges and peers in the criminal justice community. “What matters most to me as a lawyer is my reputation, and for me this recognition from Super Lawyers Magazine is a great indicator that my reputation is solid, both with clients who I have helped and also with my peers. I’m honored to have been named a Super Lawyer this year,” said Atty. Hunter.
She is also a recipient of the “Pro Bono Award” from the Washington State Bar for 10 consecutive years. This award program aims to identify and honor individual lawyers and firms, government attorney offices, corporate law departments, and other institutions that have improved or delivered volunteer legal services to those in need. “I am always especially honored when I can help a client out of a tough situation. The practice of criminal defense, while being very challenging is very rewarding and fulfilling”, added Atty. Hunter.
Ms. Hunter believes that every individual should have access to compassionate and competent legal defense. She has worked as Public Defender, and her former experience as a prosecutor from the Spokane County Attorney’s Office gives her the edge in criminal defense practice. She has participated in nearly 20 jury trials, as well as multiple bench trials, motions, and extensive court appearances.
Atty. Hunter focuses on criminal defense, helping individuals charged with driving offenses, DUIs, and other misdemeanors. For more information, visit www.KHunterLaw.com.
