Great Experience
I went in there for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Great experience. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Posted by Susan | July 17, 2015
He made bankruptcy palatable.
Mr. Song was a great lawyer to work with, quick to respond, take my phone calls, and knew the answers to whatever I asked. He helped me through the minutiae in paperwork and met with me on a Saturday. I trusted him to know how to honestly and accurately work within the "system". He was always polite and professional.

True Hero
I hired Mr. Song after contacting several lawyers and talking through my situation with them. I chose Mr. Song because of all the lawyers, he was the only one to come with confidence and laid out a plan. He clearly had my best interests in mind throughout the process, communicated every step of the way, and made sure I was getting the best possible outcome. He far surpassed my expectation and the outcome was the absolute best possible outcome I could of wished for. Actually, he exceeded what I even thought was possible, literally changed my life with the outcome he achieved. I cannot praise his work enough, I will recommend his services to friends and family.

Great Korean Lawyer
Young is very knowledgeable overall in many areas of law. He helped us close our family estate after my fathers’ passing. Young is very compassionate, kind and competent. I recommend him, particularly if your family needs a Korean speaking lawyer.

Delivered great results
We hired Mr. Song as our attorney when filing for bankruptcy. He made us comfortable through a difficult financial and legal situation. His professionalism and demeanor instilled confidence in his experience and ability. While always informative and realistic, he guided us through the bankruptcy process, advocated in our best interests, and obtained our most optimistic results. I would surely recommend his services in all legal areas in which he practices.

Helped my mother with a divorce
Helped my mother with a pretty clear-cut divorce. Went with him because he 1) is fluent in Korean so was able to help translate easily and 2) did not waste time and was very honest/transparent throughout the entire process. He also helped offer advice on another breach of contract case that I may be pursued in and I would definitely go with him again but I recently enrolled in legal services via my employer.

Knowledgeable, Excellent Advocate, Responsive
I had pleasure of working with with Young Song during recent negotiations on the sale of a small business. As counsel for the other side (the sellers), I was impressed by his ability to work with all concerned in resolving several important business issues, crafting language satisfactory to all parties, etc. that resulted in a very successful transaction. Extremely responsible, good communicator, and would recommend him highly. I look forward to future dealings with a worthy advocate and knowledgable attorney even when he represents the other side! Recommend him without reservation.
