She is prompt in responding to your call or your email because she empathizes with how worried or anxious you feel about your situation.

Guardianship petition
The case involved requesting the court to assign an independent professional guardian to manage my aging mother's health care and finances, in place of a family member who had a financial conflict of interest and also lacked health care expertise, resulting in rapid erosion of mother's health and mental capacity. The incumbent family member counter-petitioned the court for guardianship. The result, thanks to Ha, was that the judge assigned a guardian who is independent of all family members and is doing what is in the best interests of my mother.

Former Satisfied Client
For three years, combed throughly on mountain piles of documents and the outcome prevailed on my case. She had the best interest for me and my family. We won a judgement on my case. We're grateful to her and her passion for justice.
