Ami P. Kim


Ms. Kim is a graduate of St. John’s University School of Law where she served as Editor-in-Chief of “The Forum,” the law school newspaper, and as President of the Criminal Law Society. During law school, she interned at the Innocence Project where she helped prisoners gain access to post-conviction DNA testing for the purpose of exoneration. Since 2011, her practice has included criminal defense and civil rights litigation involving police misconduct. Her practice has also focused on political and religious asylum cases in Immigration Court. Additionally, she has experience handling cases involving the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. Ms. Kim works as Of Counsel to the Law Office of Rochelle Berliner as well as to other attorneys. She is admitted to practice law in New York State and is a member of the Queens County Bar Association.


Regardless of the allegations, Ms. Kim believes that everyone is entitled to a fair process and protection from the potential abuse by the government. Whether that means advocating for the best possible disposition during plea-bargaining, taking a case to trial, pushing to have a conviction vacated or re-evaluated, or pursuing a civil rights claim, she strives not only to be a voice for her clients, but also to help them navigate through the system so that they may make informed decisions.


Prior to starting her legal career, Ms. Kim attended Parsons School of Design and the State University of New York at Binghamton where she earned her degree in Fine Arts and Philosophy. She has previously worked in advertising and graphic design and has also owned and operated a retail business.
