  • Michael E. Piston

    I endorse this lawyer. Ji Min is driven by a personal sense of devotion to her clients which causes to take every case she handles as a personal as well as a professional commitment to achieve the very best outcome for her clients. She doesn't hesitate to sacrifice her personal interests for theirs, frequently taking on additional work that she is not obligated to do in order make sure that the client's matter is handled in the most thorough and diligent matter possible. Anyone who puts herself in her hands is in very good hands indeed.

  • Jason P Benjamin

    I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Kim and I obtained a highly favorable result for our client. Half way through trial, the judge interrupted, took us in chambers and warned the opposing lawyer that he better settle the case ASAP and we did. It was a pleasure collaborating with Attorney Kim.
