Kim Hammit brings experience in business formation, estate planning, real estate law
We are proud to welcome Kimberly Hammit to our firm. She comes to us from a solo practice in Port Orchard where she served small businesses and individuals in estate planning, business formation, and real estate law.
In addition, she looks forward to working with our personal injury and employment attorneys to add those foci to her practice.
Kim is a bit of a maverick. Instead of law school, she chose to study through the WSBA (Washington State Bar Association) APR 6 Law Clerk program. It is based on the venerable practice of reading for the law which predates law schools by centuries. She combined working as a law clerk and intern with studying on her own and with a tutor the same courses offered in law schools. The requirements included reading 12,000 pages of casebooks and 48 monthly exams, all overseen by the state bar association. She took the same bar exam as law school graduates.
She was admitted to the Washington State Bar in 2013. Using the skills she gained as a law clerk, she opened her own law firm that same year.
Kim loves challenges, maintaining high integrity and a sustainable lifestyle
“I decided to join forces with GSJones,” Kim said, “in order to devote more time to practicing law as opposed to managing a law firm and to further develop my skills with a highly-regarded and well-rounded practice.”
Kim, her husband, and three children enjoy the Peninsula outdoor lifestyle—camping, boating and gardening. Avid DIYers, Kim and her husband enjoy teaching sustainable living skills to their three children. The family raises livestock, gardens, hunts and fishes together. And most exciting of all, they are restoring a 1965 Chevy Bel Air. They love to tackle anything they can with their own hands, no matter how great the challenge.
