Kim Truongle is Managing Attorney for the Heard Merman firm. Kim applies over 15 years of experience in prosecuting mass tort cases to lead the firm’s mass torts division, handling cases against large pharmaceutical and device companies who market and distribute defective products.
Prior to joining the Heard Merman family, Kim worked for over a decade with esteemed hall-of-fame trial lawyer Howard Nations and was integral in running his firm’s mass tort division. She has worked on negotiations and administration of several multi-million dollar settlements with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and takes pride in the way she and the Heard Merman team treat each mass tort client as an individual.

In addition to running the firm’s operations and mass tort division, she wears many personal hats, but the most important hats she wears are those of wife and mom.
