Kim & Bae focuses its practice in the following eight principal areas of law:
Commercial Litigation Kim & Bae’s primary practice area is commercial litigation. The litigation department, headed by BJ Kim, has extensive State and Federal trial and arbitration experience, and can handle a wide array of sophisticated issues. Kim & Bae represents diverse clientele involved in disputes arising from contract, employment, real estate, landlord and tenant, and fraud. The firm has a substantial and continuing practice defending and prosecuting all forms of business litigation in trial and appeals courts. The representation of our corporate clients runs the gamut of commercial litigation matters — from traditional civil and criminal antitrust litigation to commercial contract disputes and business tort cases.
Securities Arbitration When individuals have been victimized by the wrongful conduct of their trusted stockbroker and/or investment firm, securities arbitration provides a possible opportunity to recover monetary damages. Stringent rules are enforced with respect to securities trading on all securities markets, and violations of these rules are punishable by the courts. As an investor’s attorney, Kim & Bae is experienced in identifying improper investment practices and pursuing arbitration cases that compensate investors for their losses.

Real Estate Law The importance of retaining experienced legal counsel in all real estate matters for both residential and commercial properties cannot be overstated. The legal, regulatory, and compliance issues for this area of law have become increasingly stringent, with serious financial repercussions for committing even the slightest violation of any guidelines. Our firm will help you navigate through this potential mine field and achieve the results you desire.
Bankruptcy The Bankruptcy laws were created to assist individuals and businesses whose finances have become unmanageable. However, filing for bankruptcy may not be the best possible solution in all circumstances. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys will assist you in determining whether bankruptcy is right for you, and guide you through the process of rebuilding your financial well-being.
Criminal & Municipal At first glance, traffic tickets may seem insignificant and not worthy of hiring an attorney to handle. However, if handled in the wrong manner, these tickets can trigger surcharges from the Courts and DMV, cause insurance premiums to skyrocket, and even cause your driver’s license to be suspended. Our knowledgeable attorneys and staff can provide you with sound advice and legal representation to minimize costs and achieve the best results.
Family Law Our Firm’s family law and divorce attorneys represent clients through the changes in their family relationships and address the emotional, financial, and legal issues that arise in these situations including but not limited to: custody of children, child support, prenuptial agreements, alimony, property settlement agreements, and domestic violence.
Tax Appeal Given the recent economic decline in the real estate market, it might be worthwhile to consider appealing your property taxes, in the event they are excessive. Kim & Bae, P.C. has considerable experience obtaining property tax reductions and is well-versed in the procedural rules governing property tax appeals, having handled property tax appeals in numerous counties throughout New Jersey.
