About Andrea R. Kim

I knew that I was destined to be a criminal defense attorney at seven years old when my mother told me that I should be a lawyer because I argue so much. Throughout my life, I watched people I loved get chewed up and spit out by the criminal justice system and that cemented my passion for defending those accused of crimes in our complicated court system.I studied Political Science and Criminal Justice at Washington State University. I then attended Seattle University School of Law to fulfill my dreams of becoming a criminal defense attorney. During law school I interned with the Associated Counsel for the Accused, a public defender agency in King County. I then interned with the Honorable Wesley St. Clair in the King County Juvenile Court as a clerk. I finished my final year as an intern with the Federal Public Defenders office in the Western District of Washington. I also received the highest grade in the class for Evidence at Seattle University School of Law and am an expert on evidence issues in trial.I have been practicing criminal defense since I graduated from law school. I am committed to practicing in this area forever because I thoroughly enjoy helping my clients and their families navigate the complicated and scary charges against them. In my first job as a lawyer, I worked for Feldman and Lee primarily handling municipal public defense contracts. I have also taken private cases ranging in severity from as a simple shoplifting case to a felony drug case and everything in between. I gained invaluable experience as a public defender handling thousands of cases and taking many cases to trial. I have handled hundreds of domestic violence cases and DUI’s. My expertise on these cases caused me to become the trial trainer for all of the new associates hired by the firm.I am now an Associate Attorney with Gause Law Offices handling criminal and juvenile defense including misdemeanors and felonies. We are passionate about defending our clients!
