Clear cut, no BS lawyer
I recently came into possession of a building that had an illegal basement apartment. After offering them time and money to leave, they refused and I had an issue in my hand. The first lawyer I went to was in Chinatown and I assumed that it would be cheap but after a consultation with him and the price he was asking, I learned that he was going to rip me off, rather than it being a bargain. Searching google I stumbled upon Jakubowitz and Chuang by accident and decided to give them a try. I had a free consultation with William Chuang and found that he was very professional and reasonable. I did my own research about holdover cases before looking for lawyers and found that he told me everything and cleared up some misconceptions I had. I was about to do something stupid and he saved me from that mistake. The best part of the consultation is that he itemized all his fees. The first lawyer I went to merely gave me a price and expected me to pay. I saved around 600 dollars for the first legal steps with William. When in court with my tenants, he told me what would happen and I received exactly the result that I expected. Evicting my tenants was a very arduous journey but William made it easier by explaining all the steps involved and doing what he said he was going to do. Always available by phone, text, or email. When I received a letter from the housing department about the illegal basement tenants, I emailed William and he got back to me within an hour. Even on Sundays he responds which is rare for lawyers or any professionals. I'm going to have him be my personal go to lawyer from now on.
