Custody
Wendy was an incredible help to me in my custody case. It's clear that she's an expert in not only the court system, but also in how to manage an uncooperative ex-partner. Her advice led to me getting everything I wanted (over time). She was very fair in the way she billed as well and advised against things that would have made her money but been of little help to me. Very honest and realistic. Her depth of experience is worth paying for.

Excellent custody attorney
Wendy has done an excellent job representing my custody case. She has fought each case with her knowledge and expertise to gain an outcome in my favor every time. I would highly recommend her to represent your case in any custody situation.

Great Firm To Work With
I have been working with Wendy on my custody case for 12 years off and on. She has been, by far, the best person I have met to help me. My case is long and confusing and Wendy and her staff continue to work through it, successfully.

This woman and her team is absolutely AMAZING
I am a current client and have been going thru a very tumultuous and agonizing divorce for the last 2 years. Wendy and her team have NEVER let me down. They work with me and help me day and night. Oftentimes I am in tears wondering how I will survive and pay for all of this, and Wendy and her team is always there. I currently live out of state, yet somehow she and her team manage to keep things afloat. I am ever so grateful to all of them and I look forward to the day that my divorce is finally over.

HIGHLY recommend!
Wendy was highly professional and extremely responsive to any and all questions I had. Wendy, Seth, and all of the paralegals and office staff are highly competent and truly care about their clients and their children. Wendy was brilliant and ruthless in fighting for justice, and she advised me carefully and thoroughly in what was a fairly complex interstate custody case. While many lawyers may possess the legal knowledge necessary to help clients navigate the family court system, Wendy and her team also offer their clients the reassurance and peace of mind that is much needed during this difficult process. You are in good hands with Wendy Chan & Associates!

Integrity That You Won't Easily Find
By the time I found Wendy Chan, I was already 18 months into my very contentious and complex divorce situation. My previous attorney had fed me false hope and unrealistic timelines. I was billed for every little thing, including unnecessary enclosure letters. I pulled the plug well into my divorce process and took a leap of faith with Wendy. Right from the moment of the initial consultation, Attorney Chan gave me straight talk. She drew upon her vast experience litigating divorce matters in Lancaster County and her knowledge of the court officials and opposing counsel. She advised me where the juice wasn’t worth the squeeze, something a lot of the other divorce attorneys in Lancaster County won’t do as they are only interested in separating you from your money. Wendy and her incredible paralegals April and Lori fought hard for me – literally day and night. I was not simply a client for them, but a cause. They had genuine concern about my difficult situation and were personally invested in the outcome of my case. Wendy and her team have plenty of clients. That means they don’t need to create work out of thin air. They don’t waste time on unnecessary correspondence or cover letters. With this team, my multifaceted case was litigated efficiently and effectively. Yet, they are responsive to the point to where you feel like you are their only client. What was the final outcome? Something I didn’t think possible. We were delivered a massive victory on a certain matter which is what likely drew the other party into settlement, something they had previously refused. Then the Chan team opened their office on a day it was closed so that I could meet a necessary deadline on having the document signed and notarized. If you searching for an attorney, I’d wholeheartedly recommend Wendy Chan.

Wendy is the best
I Would highly recommend Wendy to anyone. She was awesome- I always felt important and like I was truly cared about. Everyone was extremely nice and caring at her office. During my situation, Wendy always got back to me very quickly when I emailed or called with questions. There were a few times when she even responded back to me despite it being a weekend, which was completely unexpected. She goes above and beyond for her clients. My case ended in my favor, thanks to her! She did a phenomenal job, I am forever greatful for her and everything she did for me and my family. I will absolutely use her again if the need ever arises.

Take no prisoners!
Wendy was ruthless in her defense of me and my grandchildren. I am so happy she fought on my side she made the opposing lawyer look like a fool. Wendy had no fear and supported our family through a dark time. Wendy’s first concern was my family, she was the rock we needed through a difficult time.

Custody
Wendy and her team are the epitome of consummate professionals who work diligently and strategically for their clients. They pay attention to the slightest details and keep you updated every step of the way. I had a difficult custody case dealing with my daughter’s mother in Nicaragua, but Wendy eagerly accepted the challenge, and I was awarded custody. I previously hired another attorney prior to Wendy with no success, but Wendy, hit the ground running with immediate progress. She values your time and works efficiently to get results. If it wasn’t for Wendy, I would still be in a custody battle.

Amazing!
She worked on my immigration fraud and divorce case and did amazing! I was going in expecting to have to pay something, ended up not owing a penny forever and getting $10k. Would highly recommend her to anyone for immigration or divorce!
