Kimberly Young

Mayfield Heights, Ohio

Kim joined Elk & Elk in October of 2009 to expand the firm's expertise in handling employment-related matters. Kim's interest in civil rights and discrimination work was fostered by her affiliations as a student-practitioner at a non-profit and the Cleveland-Marshall Employment Law Clinic where her services were available to those otherwise unable to afford representation. Her focus at Elk and Elk is Fair Labor Standards Act enforcement and other specialized employment matters.

Kim is honored to be listed as an Ohio Super Lawyer “Rising Star” for the years of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
