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. With over 20 years’ experience in employer defense in the local courts, Kim is well-positioned to support litigation attorneys, corporate and in-house counsel with as little or as much support as required.

Kim serves as local counsel in Allegheny County and throughout Pennsylvania for parties located outside of the county or, for federal matters, outside of the Western District of Pennsylvania. 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.
