Client Protection
Alan Kan was extremely pleasant to work with! He reviewed multiple documents for me and highlighted areas in which he felt I was not protected enough. He wrote revisions that I passed on and they were all amended and I was better protected. Thank you Alan for your hard work and professionalism!

The most helpful attorney bar none
I live in California and contacted Alan after finding him on Avvo. I had already lost a BIG lawsuit by trying to represent myself. When I contacted Alan the judgement agaist me had been set.. I asked Alan to do his magic to get me out of this mess. Alan did. Alan was very resourceful, understanding and assertive. I listened to his advise, he was always right on target in negotiating with the other party. His knowledge of the law and thorough planning save me a lot of money. If you need an attorney in Atlanta, Alan is your man. He will understand your situation and help resoulve your issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Alan is the lawyer for you.

Best experience with an attorney I ever have had. A pleasure working with.
I have used several attorneys in the past, most of which were unreachable or took forever to hear back from. Alan Kan is a cut above the rest, he is extremely responsive even on the weekend. From the moment I spoke with him over the phone I had a good feeling about him. This feeling was validated when we met for the first time. I was treated with respect and dignity. Alan took the time to listen to me even though some of what I had to say may have been irrelevant. I was updated regularly on the status of my case and the thoroughness was amazing. Pre-hearing he set us aside to inform us about what to expect. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone in need of his services / expertise. Alan will be my go to attorney any time I have a necessity for his specialties! Thank You Alan YOU'RE THE BEST!

True Representation
As a result of home financial issues and a family medical emergency, I pursued Mr. Khan's legal advice. Mr. Khan immediately obtained critical details to bring about a real solution. Mr. Khan immediately returned all calls and even when he wasnot on the phone, he had his team of experts working on the case. Mr. Khan has restored my faith in true legal representation.

Identity theft victim
Being a victim of fraud and identity theft it was imperative for me to find a lawyer who was trustworthy and honest. Alan definately displayed these characteristics, and did his utmost to ensure that my case could be resolved. I found him extremly knowledgeable concerning the applicable laws, and he kept me informed every step of the way. He was able to work with the creditors involved, stop harassment from debt collectors, and remove negative items from my credit report. I not only got my case resolved, but I sincerely felt that we had developed a great partnership. I have since used him for a variety of different situations, no matter how big or small.

Property Manager
Alan has done a great job working with us over the past year. He has always made himself available when needed. All of the Board members think he has done a great job for us helping on bankruptcy cases and lawsuits he filed on behalf of the HOA Board.
