Kimberlee Colbo, Member
After graduating from University of Washington School of Law in 1992, Kim joined Hughes White Colbo Wilcox & Tervooren, LLC, where she currently represents clients in matters involving all aspects of insurance defense including bad faith and coverage, manufacturers and retailers in product liability matters and employers in wrongful termination and discrimination matters. She also represents individuals involved in divorces and child custody disputes. Listed as one of The Best Lawyers in America© since 2008 in the areas of Insurance Law and Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants, she’s also been honored as a Super Lawyer Alaska for Personal Injury Defense since 2009 and was named the Anchorage Insurance Law “Lawyer of the Year” in 2015, 2017 and 2019 by Best Lawyers in America. She has tried nearly 30 cases to verdicts before juries in both state and federal courts in Alaska. She also has had 17 appeal decisions published by the Alaska Supreme Court.
Kimberlee was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers on March 7, 2020. Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows.
While juggling a busy practice and serving as the firm’s chairwoman, Kimberlee still finds time to volunteer outside the firm as a board of director member for Life Alaska Donor Services and the Alaska Bar Foundation. In December 2017, Kimberlee was named the December Volunteer Attorney of the Month by the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault (ANDVSA). She is also active with the Rotary Club of Anchorage Russian Jack, having served two terms as its president, among other offices.
Kim lives by the Golden Rule when it comes to her clients. “I endeavor to provide the service to my clients that I would want if I was in their shoes,” she says. “My goal is to listen to what they want and work with them to achieve their goals in a cost effective and efficient manner.”
When not working or volunteering, Kim hones her golf game (aiming to break 100) and cheers enthusiastically for the University of Southern California Trojan football team.
