Stephen has been my lawyer for many years and has represented me in both personal and professional situations. Stephen is an excellent listener, is always very well prepared, pays attention to details, offers exemplary council, and consistently follows up and follows through on his commitments. In each circumstance he was able to reach a positive outcome on my behalf.

Chong - will and estate preparation
Steve assisted in updating our will and estate planning. He was thorough in considering all issues that we needed to address both now and in the future. He gave careful consideration to tax planning.

Stephen Chong
Stephen was recommended to me by Russ Divine. My family was in need of a local legal assistance at a time of a serious health issue. Stephen was able to see us immediately and assist with the execution of many legal documents. Without knowing us very long, he made us feel very comfortable and explained everything we were signing thoroughly. I have since contacted Mr. Chong on other legal issues and he has been extremely responsive and informative. He makes the legal world an easier place to navigate to those of us who are not familiar with the many aspects of family trust and other.

Review of Steven Chong legal services
Steve has represented me in two successful business acquisitions. I found his counsel helpful in the deal structure and evaluation of legal issues, while at the same time he has a good sense of business issues and considerations. I look forward to working with Steve again.
