Amazing!
I could not be happier with our lawyer T. Ethan Choi. In fact I cannot even think of a way that his service can be improved since it is top notch. The same can be said of the paralegal working with him in the office. I completely trust his judgment and would recommend him to anyone. He is very kind and patient as well.

Ethan Choi –Elder Law Attorney – Highly Recommended
Mr. Ethan Choi was highly recommended by a very close friend of mine. Ethan does outstanding work. Ethan is extremely professional, knowledgeable, honest, respectful, compassionate, sincere, and detail oriented. Ethan is also a very good listener. That is a very important attribute to have. Ethan’s knowledge of The Medicare and Medicaid Systems always impresses me because everyone knows how complicated and challenging it can be to deal with. Ethan is also very fluent in English and Korean. Lastly, I always appreciate Ethan’s hard work and dedication; I would highly recommend Ethan’s services.
