Kimberly L. Wald

Attorney

“I believe that my most important role as a lawyer is to not only advocate for my clients, but also to be an advisor and a counselor. It is an honor to help injured clients and their families, and my goal is to not only meet, but to exceed my client’s expectations.”

Kimberly is a South Florida native, born and raised in Fort Lauderdale. She is dedicated to her community and seeking justice for her clients.

In 2016, Kimberly was recognized by the Daily Business Review as one of the “Most Effective Lawyers” for her involvement in a $4million medical malpractice arbitration. Later that year, she second-chaired Konzelman v. RJ Reymonds, a products liability tobacco trial against the second largest cigarette manufacturer in the United States. In that case, Kimberly helped obtain a $28.795 million dollar jury verdict. Recently in 2017, Kim was second-chair in two additional landmark tobacco trials, resulting in over $11 million dollars in jury verdicts. She also has served as a guest lecturer at Nova Southeastern Law Center’s Shepard Broad Law Center and serves on the faculty of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy.

While at Tulane, Kimberly studied abroad at the Copenhagen Business School where she took additional legal studies courses including International Law. After graduating cum laude from Tulane University, Kimberly attended Nova Southeastern Law School. During her first year at law school Kimberly competed against 100 of her peers and won the 1L Feinrider Moot Court Competition. She also served on the Moot Court Honor Society’s Executive Board as the Executive Justice for Teams and was invited to be a member of the Nova Law Review. During her third year in law school Kimberly served as Associate Managing technical editor with the Nova Law Review.

Kimberly began her legal career as a law clerk with Kelley/Uustal, working in the mass tort and medical malpractice areas. During her last year of law school Kimberly served as a Certified Legal Intern with the Office of the State Attorney for the 17th Judicial Circuit where she tried numerous misdemeanor cases.
