Local Counsel for Employer Defense in the Western District of Pennsylvania

Attorney Kim Kisner partners with clients and attorneys outside of Pennsylvania to serve as their local counsel in Pennsylvania’s state and federal courts.

From pro hac vice admissions to offering guidance on local rules, judges, and mediators, to drafting motions and briefs or appearing at case management conferences, her services are customized to the needs of clients and attorneys. Kim is committed to ensuring her clients receive exactly the level of support they need in the most cost-effective manner possible.
