Kim Coward Appointed to Board of Legal Specialization

We are pleased to announce that Kimberly Coward has been appointed to the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization by the North Carolina State Bar Council. Kim will serve as a member of the Board through the fall of 2018.

The Board of Legal Specialization was created in 1983 and held its first certification examinations in 1987. The Board was established by the North Carolina State Bar to create a method by which qualified North Carolina lawyers might become certified as specialists in designated areas of the law. The North Carolina program is one of only 19 state legal certification programs in the United States.

Kim specializes in residential real estate transactions in Western North Carolina. Indeed, she is the only Board Certified Specialist in Real Estate Law – Residential Transactions, west of Asheville. A graduate of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Kim joined the firm in 1988, following law school. She holds an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Iowa State University. She is listed in the Women Leaders in the Law by Legal Leaders™, American Law Media and Fortune Magazine, and was named Business Person of the Year 2001 by Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce.

Kim serves as an Advisory Member on the North Carolina Bar Ethics Commission, and is a member of the Real Property Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association. From 2007 to 2013, she served on the Real Property Subcommittee of the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization, and chaired that committee in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. The Board of Legal Specialization oversees the Real Property Subcommittee and eleven other specialty practice areas in the State.

Kim is a career long partner in the firm. She is located in our Cashiers office where she focuses primarily in the areas of real estate transactions, land use and zoning, homeowner/condominium association law, and corporate and business law.
