    • I recommend Evangeline Chan.
    • I hired Evangeline 1-6 months ago.
    • Evangeline handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.

    In July of 2014, I found myself in need of sound legal advice regarding the sale of my partnership share in a small business I owned. I had begun an event catering business in the city of New York with one other partner, and over the years I invested much time and energy into building a client base and profile for our company as well as planning for and executing various events. When I decided to transition to Los Angeles in pursuit of other career aspirations, but with the intention of also bringing our event business in some capacity, my partner had misgivings. My partner in our established LLC did not wish for me to retain any share of our business in New York, as partner or investor, once I moved. Furthermore, my partner had misgivings about allowing me to utilize any iteration of the name of our established business when opening shop in Los Angeles. I had issue with this because, as I was leaving within the first five years of our LLC's operation, much of my work for the company had not yet produced monetary reward. I believed that the seeds I had sown for our business would only begin to bear fruit in my absence, and I wanted very much for my initial investment of unpaid time and energy to be rewarded.

    Over the course of negotiations, Evangeline Chan offered sage advice about diminishing my partnership sale vs. selling my share outright and how to do so in the best possible way to protect my investments. Ms. Chan also advised me regarding the legal ramifications of utilizing an iteration of our existing LLC's name in Los Angeles, and she advised me regarding how to trade off the business I had established in New York when seeking clients in Los Angeles.

    Without Ms. Chan's thorough and compassionate attention, I would not have known to ask the right questions or to frame the sale in a way that would have been as beneficial to me in the long run. Ms. Chan, in an efficient and reasonable way, helped me to negotiate the buyout of my partnership with the provision that I would be free to do business as I saw fit in Los Angeles, independent of my New York LLC, but while trading off the work I had generated for the New York business.

    Ms. Chan was a delight to work with. She was punctual, responsive, insightful and efficient, and I would highly recommend her service to anyone in need of legal counsel.

    • I recommend Evangeline Chan.
    • I hired Evangeline 6-12 months ago.
    • Evangeline handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I would like to show my appreciation to Evangeline for assisting my husband and I in applying for his green card. She asserted thorough knowledge and experience with the USCIS by clarifying our concerns and explaining in detail the transition of my husband's E2 visa to one of a permanent resident. She made herself accessible throughout the day (and evenings!) and demonstrated patience in explaining what was pertinent in the process to ensure that our experience was seamless. Thank you Evangeline!

    MS. Chan is intelligent, persistent and was very patient with my friend who is also a "battered wife " she sent hours and e-mails and phone calls to follow up with us and all the required references. I highly recommend her to everyone I know
