Chong est un excellent avocat .hommes et femmes de toutes races, langues et couleurs je vous recommande cet homme sans re.
Ayant accuse de terroriste dans une affaire d'eglise tres compliquee .le systeme de justice criminel m'avait oblige de trouver un avocat pour me representer. vu la complexite de l'affaire et les exigences du moment. je connais mr chong par le biais d'un autre avocat ami . Depuis ce jour, il a travaille sur la requete visant les moyens de rejeter le plus rapidement possible les demandes frivoles des plaintifs par le tribunal. Alors je suis libere avec satisfaction de son travail comme avocat. Donc, mes experiences avec lui. il sait bien l'art du metier et il sait aussi tenir ferme devant l'enfer des juges pour defendre ses clients. tout ce que un client aura besoin d'un avocat comme qualite relative a l'exercise de cette profession il le trouvera en lui .il peut aisement faire de l'accroissement des relations professionelles en se faisant l'ami de tous les clients. Mais il travaille avec modestie, prudence, tenacite, en bon strategiste, avec patience, tres collaboratif et tres jovial. Mr chong s. Kim est un bon investigateur il sait bien le processus d'evaluation des circonstances .remarquablement il s'est soucie de ma situation financiere il n'est pas cupide. Or, l'argent n'a jamais ete constitue le moyen de blocage entre lui et ses clients de sa part il cherche toujours une voie favorable pour mettre ses clients en totale confiance. en ce qui me concerne il faisait comme s'il me connaiterait longtemps. En consequence ;il travaille dans les domaines varies du metier. Il est tres habile, diligent et consistent .merci avocat chong s.Kim continue comme tu as commence dans cette carriere. Finalement, si vous voulez constater si mon temoignage est vrai au sujet de cet homme. n'hesitez pas de faire appel a lui pour votre representation legale quel que soit le cas. Venez et vous voyez! C'etait pasteur Emmanuel. Le 28th August 2016.

Chong S. Kim is a genuine man.
I had never met Mr. Kim before he became my attorney. I have dealt with my fair share of attorneys but my experience with him is by far the most appreciated yet. This man is helping my family and I keep our home when we were supposed to be homeless. He has such a genuine heart and cares about the well-being of his clients. I feel blessed to have him helping me during this tough time and working with me. May God richly bless this man!

Lawyer Level: Outstanding!!! Awesome!!! The Best!!!
One of the best things in my world is that I have rock star attorneys named Chong S. Kim and his equally awesome partner, Leonard Boyer. I've had the pleasure to work with both on my case and these gentlemen are lifesavers! They are Knowledgeable, Honest, Professional, Available when you need them, Responsive, Open and most of all Caring!!! They take the time to get to know you as a client and find out what your goals/needs are and do their level and legal best to help you achieve them. Both are calm, caring individuals and they work together seamlessly. They were great at communicating with me, in person, on the phone, via email etc and effortlessly helping to alleviate any fears I may have had during the course of my case, etc. These gentlemen will be my attorneys for life and in addition to them doing everything and more that they said they could/would do on my behalf, I am happy to recommend them and endorse them.

Best Immigration advice I have received!
I have a complicated situation regarding my H1B visa and the green card application. I called many lawyers and Mr. Kim is the only one respond me and he contacted me within 15 minutes after receiving my voice mail. His suggestions show his great knowledge and experiences in immigration laws and helped me sort through my situations within a very short time. 金律师是我接触过的最负责、最及时与客户联系的律师。他针对我移民申请的建议一针见血,非常精准。我推荐有此方面需要的朋友与他联系。

Chong Kim is an excellent attorney-he represented me in a bail reduction hearing in my aggravated I had an agravated assault charg.-I was told by othersin jail and other attorneys that I interviewed that I would never get a bail reduction!!Howeve,r, Chong Kim represented me with dilligence and his expertise and knowledge gave him the fire in court. I was granted the bail reduction, which enabled me to bail out and taste freedom again. without him, I may still be a prisoner thank GOD for Chong Kim-he is an attorney that anyone would be in the best position to have him as their legal representative in any court-of-law!!!!and he i s excellent in immigration law!!I, he helped some friends of mine iimmigration distress Iwould hire him to represent me in any legal action!!!

When I realized I was at my lowest ebb and my cry for help wasn't heard from anyone ,I called Mr Kim and he immediately made an appointment to see me despite his busy schedule .Immediately I walked into his office I felt a sense of victory ! He was very professional adviced me of his plan of action ,explained everything in depth to me .I was so amazed because I had been to several attorneys who had mislead me .Mr Kim prepared my paperwork within a short time because there was a deadline . I feel very blessed to have such great counsel . Mr Kim is so reliable ,honest,wise,kind and affordable .He believes in honesty and has a great sense of memory so don't lie to him .I will refer him in a heartbeat and know any potential client will never be disappointed !

Excellent Immigration Attorney
Mr. Kim is an excellent attorney. He guided me through the entire process of obtaining an EB5 visa, when several other attorneys I contacted told me it could not be done. I am grateful to Mr. Kim. He is very knowledgeable and passionate. He calmed my fears, and his communication and answers to my questions were always patient and understanding.

Chong is my attorney in regards to a custody issue that I have. He is always avail when I have questions that needs answers about my case. I am SUPER happy with him as my attorney.

Honest, Trustworthy, RELIABLE!!! Diamond in the rough... Best around
Why do I say diamond in the rough? I have had a bad taste with the majority of attorneys and I am sure many others have as well. When people talk about attorneys they all categorize them in the same category...Greedy. I understand everything costs money, but he exceeds expectations and is reasonable. Mr. Kim is far from the others attorneys you usually find. The man truly cares for his clients and always does whats best for them not whats easiest for him. He has gone through so much time informing me and extending my personal knowledge throughout my cases. Every case that he has handled for me he spends time to make sure I understand the issue and what he believes is the ultimate solution. Mr. Kim has handled various commercial cases for my various businesses from litigation, labor, taxation and the list goes on. No secretaries... None of that... YOU SPEAK WITH MR. KIM when there is any issues at hand. In any event communication is key and there is absolutely no lack in that. The man has various years of experience under his belt and if he doesn't know the answer he will find it. I feel confidence when he is representing me and I will continue to use Mr. Kim for years to come. I recommend Mr. Kim to anyone who is in need of representation to seek him as their counsel.

I recommend Mr. Kim highly as attorney
Mr. Kim is a great attorney. He helped me settle one lawsuit and got a dismissal of another. I recommend him highly. 김종수 변호사 강추입니다. 5, 6年 전에 나도모르게 크레딧회사 들에게 소송을 당했읍니다. 억울하지만 파산으로 정리하는것이 여러면에서 최상의 선택같아서 김변호사 한테 의례 했읍니다. 김변호사 조사결과 내 크레딧스코 가 780점 이라고 하면서 싸울가치가 있다며 파산은 마지막 선택으로 하자고 하더군요. 변호사 비용은 좀들었지만, 시간은 좀길었지만, 상당히 만족스러은 결과 을 갇다 주었읍니다. 한 문제 ($3500)는 500불 에 합이하고 (변호사비용 절감하기위해서), 다른문제 ($35000)는 기각 시켜읍니다. 김변호사 말투 가 직설적이어서 오해을 했지만, 상당히 양심적이며 변호사임무와 손님을 위해서 물불을 가리지않은 변호사라는 느낌울 받았읍니다. 상당히 인간적이다는 느낌을받았읍니다. 김종수 변호사 강추입니다.

Excellent Attorney/ Happy Client
Excellent Attorney ~ Attorney Chong Kim is a great lawyer. He represented me on behalf of my lawyer Attorney Leonard Boyer who is also an Excellent Lawyer over a Landlord/Tenant case that was taken care of and was very professional and knew exactly what to do . He put alot of pressure of my shoulders. He is well organized and in appearance very professional and easy to speak to. He listens to all your concerns and does his best to protect you when it comes down to walking into court. I would hands down recommend him to anyone & I am happy that he represents me and my family until this day on. Happy Client.

Highly Recommended.
After acquiring several more traffic violations because of my lead foot, I contacted Mr. Kim. He dealt with my violations with the greatest of ease and kept me informed every step of the way. When all was said and done, I walked away with a slap on the wrist and a small fine.
