Sarah Kim is an attorney engaging in general practice as a solo practitioner. She has practiced law for over a decade and has licenses in both New Jersey and New York.

Sarah has been a resident of the Borough of Ridgefield along with her husband Thomas Kim since 2018.  Prior to that, she lived in West New York, North Bergen, Cliffside Park, and Palisades Park.   She came to New Jersey in 2008 for a job upon graduating from Albany Law School in New York and ever since then has found it to be home.

Sarah holds three Bachelor of Arts degrees in Philosophy, Government, and History from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Arts in International Cooperation with a minor in Korean History from Yonse lGraduate School of International Studies (GSIS) in Seoul, South Korea.

While living abroad, she worked as a volunteer for a civic groupfighting for the rights of the families whose loved ones had gone missing or found dead under mysterious circumstances during the South Korean authoritarian regimes from 1970s to 1990s. Through this experience, Sarah witnessed firsthand the significance of civic empowerment and participation in governance through the democratic process in bringing social reforms and holding those in power to account.
