Kimberly Wilson White
Education Vice President
Kimberly Wilson White, Managing Shareholder of Wilson Law, P.A. in Raleigh, NC, has been practicing law for 25 years. She received her law degree from West Virginia University, and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For nearly 20 years, Ms. White has represented plaintiffs in personal injury cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, defective medical devices, defective products and medical malpractice. Ms. White has been appointed to leadership positions by federal judges in various multidistrict litigations across the country. Recently, she was appointed by Federal Judge M. Casey Rodgers to the Expert and Science Committee in the 3M Products Liability Litigation pending in the Northern District of Florida. This litigation involves the use of defective hearing protection by U.S. Servicemembers, including many servicemembers from North Carolina.
As a member of NCAJ, Ms. White has served the organization as a lobbyist, PAC Trustee and member of the Board of Governors, Finance and Nominating & Awards committee. Over the past 10 years, she has also assisted with NCAJ opposition to proposed legislation impacting civil jury trials, specifically beating back, along with other NCAJ members, an effort in 2012 to pass legislation that would have afforded immunity for pharmaceutical companies from civil suit for injuries caused by dangerous drugs. But for the efforts of NCAJ, North Carolinians would not have the same access to the courtroom as other Americans who are injured by the misleading, inadequate warnings of drug manufacturers.
