Kimberly Johnson is a trial lawyer specializing in complex litigation, mass and class actions, products liability, and catastrophic personal injury matters. She graduated from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, with a B. Mus., with a major in music education. After teaching orchestra for four years in the public schools, Kim earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Alabama School of Law.
Kim began her legal career as a judicial clerk, first with the Hon. W. Harold Albritton III, in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, and then with the Hon. Emmett R. Cox, on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Although she started private practice at a large defense firm, Kim has always enjoyed working with and advocating for individuals. She worked for another well-respected plaintiffs’ firm before coming to Pope McGlamry in 2012 as head of the firm’s legal department.
Outside of the firm, Kim is active with both legal and musical organizations. She has served on the editorial board of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s quarterly publication The Verdict and on the Georgia State Bar’s Committee on Electronically Stored Information. Kim also plays violin and viola in chamber groups (including Da Capo Strings and the Atlanta Wind Ensemble) and with the Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra. She is past-chair of the ACSO, and has served as the orchestra’s liaison to the Atlanta Music Club. Kim is also an advocate for music education and is on the board of the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestras of Atlanta.
Kim is an avid baseball fan and was thrilled to attend a World Series game with her dad last October. In addition to playing music with friends, Kim enjoys swimming and spending time in the mountains with her family.
