Kim Greylek is the third Assistant District Attorney assigned to the Special Victims Unit, following Casey Novak, who replaced Alexandra Cabot. Under the purview of the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women, she handled cases relating to women's rights and abuse in Washington D.C.; her colleagues back there gave her the nickname "The Crusader".

Perhaps due to the circumstances under which she was hired (Novak was censured for violating Brady rules in a trial involving Detective Chester Lake), Greylek has taken a tougher line with the Special Victims Unit.

As of episode 15 of Season 10, Greylek has returned to Washington, DC; Alexandra Cabot returned to fill in for her as interim ADA for the Special Victims Unit. Cabot explained that a change in the administration in the DA's office was the reason for Greylek leaving, returning to work with the Justice Department, and Cabot returning.

Greylek was a tough but determined ADA, who often hated being excluded and was often firm in the courtroom and the squad room, particularly with criminals and their lawyers. Despite this, she always remained persistent and sometimes became upset or disturbed by certain criminals. Her tough attitude, however, often subjected her to angry or upset reactions from criminals and suspects, which resulted in one woman assaulting Greylek in the courtroom, causing Greylek to bleed from the neck.


  • She is the shortest serving main character in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the shortest serving main character in the Law & Order franchise. Alongside that, she also has the shortest episode count of any main character in the franchise and is the only main character in SVU to appear in one season.
