Kim L. AnglinSenior Litigation Counsel
One of the basic tenets guiding Kim Anglin in her practice of law today is the fundamental understanding that we are all entitled to basic human rights. Her interest in the civil rights of all has guided her through her undergraduate degree in anthropology as well as in her choice to practice law. During her law school days at The American University, she became involved in the Human Rights Brief which is still published today and was given the honor of a Dean's Fellowship with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. Continuing in her quest to understand and help people, Anglin studied law abroad at Oxford University and at the Université de Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne, taking international law courses alongside students, scholars and international lawyers from around the world. Even before studying law, Anglin went to migrant work camps in Northern and Central California to see for herself the conditions under which the people who underpin the agriculture of California live and work. It was a great learning experience along with fellow students from the University of California at Davis.
Once she began to practice law, Anglin found her calling representing people in the area of labor and employment law. Labor and employment law is an astonishingly wide practice area that touches peoples' lives every day. "I am proud of the work I do helping clients who have suffered at the hands of their employers including those who have been deprived of food and water, those who have been discriminated against on the basis of who they are and where they came from; those who have suffered harassment and retaliation for speaking the truth; those who have been robbed of wages, of healthcare and social security contributions; and those who have been wrongfully terminated." Without the Plaintiff's bar to protect individuals, their basic rights would remain violated. I am honored to be a part of a group of attorneys that work hard to protect those in need.
During her career, Anglin has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for her clients in class action and individual matters. Most importantly though, she has been a part of helping her clients regain their confidence in themselves and to know that they are able to assert their rights to wages, to a discrimination free work environment, and to a workplace where they no longer suffer retaliation. Anglin is certified to practice in the United District Courts for the Southern, Eastern, Central and Northern Districts of California as well as before all of the courts of the State of California. Anglin has also been admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in multi-district complex litigation.Affiliations
