Sharon H. Kim
Knoxville has been Sharon’s hometown since immigrating from Seoul, South Korea as an infant in 1985. She graduated from Farragut High School and earned her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Tennessee. After graduating from college, Sharon lived in South Korea for two years where she taught English as a second language to Korean middle school students.
In 2011, Sharon moved back to Knoxville to earn her J.D. from the University of Tennessee’s College of Law. As a third-year law student, Sharon clerked for the Honorable Judge Bill Swann of the Knox County Fourth Circuit Court and served as a student attorney for the Innocence and Wrongful Convictions Clinic. In recognition of her advocacy on behalf of the clinic’s clients, Sharon received the 2015 James L. Powers III award.
Prior to joining Frantz, McConnell & Seymour, LLP in 2020, Sharon practiced with the law firm of Finkelstein, Kern, Steinberg & Cunningham, P.C. for nearly five years. Throughout her practice, Sharon’s focus has been in the areas of general civil litigation, appellate practice, probate administration, Tennessee Adult Protection Act litigation, contract law, real estate law, and construction law. Sharon is also a member of the Knoxville and Tennessee Bar Associations. Guided by her commitment to best serve her clients, Sharon believes in being direct, thorough, and efficient – all while maintaining a respectful attitude.
Aside from being a lawyer, Sharon is a 4th degree Taekwondo black belt and an instructor for Tennessee Taekwondo Judo College. Outside of work, Sharon enjoys singing karaoke (privately), exploring local craft breweries, playing recreational soccer in the Knoxville Metro Soccer League, and spending time with her husband and two dogs – Tyson and Nemo.
