Highly Recommend! Best Decision to Hire Jimmy!
We were referred to Jimmy Chong by another attorney, who recommended him based on the respect he has earned amongst his colleagues, his varied expertise, and success rate. It was the first time ever needing to hire an attorney and we had no idea he would not only be successful with our case, but through his kindness, immense support and compassion beyond our expectations, he made a difficult time considerably easier. He is very honest, as he explained everything very clearly so that we could make informed decisions, he answered all of our questions, and as things progressed he kept us informed. Jimmy made time for us when needed and not only met all deadlines, but ahead of time, relieving much anxiety. I would recommend him to anyone considering hiring an attorney. Without a doubt, if I ever need an attorney again I would first go to Jimmy.

Professional and Personable
Jimmy represented me in during a difficult time and truly helped resolve all of my issues with a positive outcome for me . He was both personable and professional at the same time. I found he was easy to communicate with in that he or his office kept me updated consistently regarding my case, and I never had trouble reaching him when I needed. He knew the law and was always extremely prepared. I would absolutely recommend Jimmy to anyone needing an attorney in the future.

Expert Car Accident Lawyer!
When I had my auto accident, I knew I needed someone to stand up and represent me. With the severity of the crash and injuries I sustained, the medical bills were a nightmare and dealing with the insurance claims seemed impossible. When I met Jimmy, he right away explained the direction we should go with my case and what needed to be done. Jimmy was able to settle with the hospital on my behalf and saved me thousands of dollars in medical bills. Also, when my auto insurance money was exhausted, Jimmy found a way to get me more funds while unemployed and recovering. Jimmy is an efficient and experienced car accident lawyer. I am grateful that he represented me during one of the most challenging times of my life!

Best Lawyer Ever!!!
i did business with Mr. Chong and his law firm from december 2018- december 2019 in regard to an automotive accident i was involved in where i received neck back and head, one of many in my life, injuries. Right from the outset Mr. Chong was very transparent about his process and was very reassuring that he would be able to help resolve my issues. This man went above and beyond and not only got me enough to cover and and all medical bills from the accident but a nice take home settlement for my pain and suffering as well which is more than i could've ever asked of him. He also kept me up to date quite frequently either through calls from the man him self or through his paralegal Melinda who was also very kind and helpful. All in all this was a painless and wonderful experience dealing with him and his associates and i cant recommend him highly enough.

Outstanding service
Having work most my life with lawyers, I can say I have met all kinds but, with out a doubt, Jimmy Chong is not only an outstanding lawyer but an incredible nice person to know and work with. I met Jimmy for the first time when he came to my house to listen to my problem. After having retained they "go to law firm" in Philadelphia that never met with me once in over a year, I was shocked that Jimmy volunteered to visit me at my home. Jimmy is a lawyer's lawyer whose knowledge, empathy and kindness are unparalleled in any profession let alone the practice of law. What he was able to accomplish for me was just short of a miracle. I will be forever in indebted to Jimmy for his help and friendship. I, without any reservation, recommend talking to Jimmy before you retain any lawyer. You will be glad you did

A lawyer and a good man
I was very impressed with the CHONG law firm. Me Chong cared. I am very glad to have him on my side. His firm called me several times to make sure I was ok, I had seen a Dr and let me know they would be looking after me. I am a rehab Dr that sees accident patients for a living and mr Chong is my new lawyer. Blessings Dr Paul Teich

Auto Accident Victim
Jimmy Chong was my lawyer when I was involved in an auto accident where the other driver was at fault, and I suffered back and neck injuries and damage to my vehicle. Jimmy is an experienced personal injury attorney who specializes in auto accidents. Because he has handled many of these types of cases, he thoroughly understands and explains the process of an auto accident case to his client each step of the way. He returned my phone calls and was responsive to my questions. Even when I had no questions, he and his professional staff kept me informed of the status of my case each step of the way. He carefully advised me as to the pros and cons of settlement and trial. He skillfully negotiated with the insurance company to obtain the best possible settlement for my case. As a result of all of his diligence and hard work, my case reached its best possible outcome. If you are injured in an auto accident, I highly recommend that you contact Jimmy Chong at The Chong Law Firm.

Remarkable
Jimmy is amazing. He is very friendly and professional at the same time. I was in a car accident on Christmas with a very shifty indicidual. The other driver kept changing the dates and times managing to stall for an entire year. Jimmy kept in constant contact with me the entire time. He walked me through the entire process and made sure I understood what was going on and why. There weren’t any surprises with him and his staff is also very courteous as well. If I ever need help again I will definately call him again.

Injury Case
Jimmy was exquisite with his legal knowledge about my son's rights and was able to obtain maximum compensation for his injury that occurred at daycare due to negligence. Very professional, communicative, and prompt with proceedings. Ease of access, and attentiveness to detail allowed my wife and I to feel good about the ultimate conclusion of this case. We can finally now move on. I recommend Jimmy 100 percent!

Best decision I made!
After I was in a terrible accident, there were many decisions to be made. The very best decision I made was to hire Jimmy Chong. Attorney Chong treats each client like a family member. He assists clients every step of the way. He found the best doctors and demonstrated sincere care for my health. If you don't have a lawyer in the family, I highly recommend Jimmy Chong.

The Real Deal
Jimmy Chong is the best lawyer in the tri-state area, hands down, bar none. The man makes miracles happen. Jimmy took my case when there was nearly no time to even file, better yet make a case. He had 2 months to go through thousands of papers just to file before it was to late. Not only did he reach the deadline but he made it his personal crusade to represent me with every ounce of his skill. I thought it was a lost cause and i had no hope. He changed my mind. He saw the injustice that was being done unto me and took it upon himself to make it right. The man was a bulldog and gave their defense no quarter. He was able to prove that each and everyone of the defenses witnesses lied under oath. He made me believe in myself when the time came and gave me the push I needed to confront the people that wronged me and made me want to fight for myself again. He won my case in grand fashion. He is the smartest, most honest and trustworthy person I know. I will forever be grateful to Jimmy and his staff. If anyone in his area of service needs a lawyer i strongly urge you to hire this man. He can and will only do right by you or darn near die trying. I love Jimmy for everything he has done for me. Call him if you want to win.
