Expungement of records
Ken did an excellent job in expunging my son's background record. He clearly explained the process and what it would take for my son to have a clean record.

I received Ken's info from a friend who had good things to say about it. He lived up to the billing. He was able to get my Son's case handled efficiently so that he could get his license back that he needed while at college. Thanks Ken

Traffic Court
I got a 40 over traffic violation on I-88 near the Chicago burbs. Court appearance required. Maximum is 1 year and or $2500 fine. Honesty I was very nervous about this case. I've never been to court before. So I contacted several lawers the night getting pulled over and Ken Wang was early to get back. I explained the case and he gave me all the potential outcomes from his experiences. He took care of everything paperwork wise and he even sent a litigation letter on my behalf. He let me know every step as he took it to plea my case. My biggest concern was going to jail. Thankfully enough, I got out with no jail time. Just Court Supervision and a much smaller fine then I expected.

Experienced, hard working lawyer who gets the job done!
I hired Ken to assist me with my traffic ticket case. If I did not hire Ken, I would of had a license suspension starting in August. Ken is very professional and knows exactly what he is doing. He is very friendly in person and gets the job done. Highly recommended.

The Best Lawyer EVER.
I am a college student with bright horizons. Long story short, I got myself into a little mess when I was caught underage at a bar using someone else's ID. I needed to get this expunged off my record because I am applying to graduate school, and I did not need anything holding me back. Ken answered all my annoying questions, and he reassured me during my times of stress. Thanks for showing me that SOME lawyers actually care about clients and having sympathy for me. Your services were quick, affordable, and perfect. If I ever get into legal trouble again (I HOPE NOT), I will be sure to hire Ken Wang.

Phenomenal Attorney
Ken is really everything you hope for in an attorney. He takes the time to answer each and every one of your questions and goes over everything until he is sure you completely understand. Just telling him you get it won't work, he will be able to tell if you don't quite get it and he will take the time to make sure you do. One of the best things about Ken is that he does not rush you off the phone or dodge your calls like most lawyers. He once again takes the time to go over everything with you whether it is in person or on the phone. He does not give you false hope or lead you on, he tells it just how it is and formulates a plan of attack. Ken is the real deal and not your average attorney.

Highly Recommend.
I hired Ken from the internet with no prior recommendation or prior experience with him. I had a misdemeanor speeding ticket. Ken was able to get this reduced to a regular speeding ticket with a medium fine. Ken is a straight shooter and clear communicator. He clearly explained the likely outcome before the court date and what he explained is exactly what happened in court Jan 2016. Ken is responsive and his communication is excellent. I would not hesitate to use Ken again or recommend Ken to my friends and family. Thanks Ken.

Things Went Great
Ken was the first lawyer I've ever had to hire in my life, and it was great that he made it so easy for me. I had an Aggravated Speeding charge, in addition to a Scott's Law charge (bad night), and I was really worried that I'd get maximum fines that I couldn't afford, possible suspended license, or realistically, have a misdemeanor charge put on my record that would follow me around. Ken put me at ease pretty much right away on the consolation call, and then made me feel better when we had a more in-depth meeting face-to-face before the court date. Then when my time came to go to the court house (which I'd never been to before), Ken also made everything very easy for me, because that place was insane. I didn't even have to talk to the judge! Ken did pretty much all of the work without me doing anything, and that was pretty awesome. That's not to say that's how it will be with everybody, but for me personally, it felt like all I had to do was hire Ken and I knew I was in good hands. I appreciate that because I'm kind of a mush-mouth, and probably would have screwed it up if I had to defend myself. He was able to bring my two charges down to one petty speeding ticket, and the other will go away with court supervision. I still had to pay a decent amount in fines, but that's better than any of the other alternatives. Ken did great! He was very knowledgeable of everything I did right away, from the moment I called him out of nowhere for a consultation. He knew the answer to pretty much every question I had, which was nice. I would definitely recommend Ken for any traffic related offenses you might get charged with. I hope I never *have* to hire him again (I'll drive slower), but if I find myself in another jam, I'll more than likely be calling Ken. Oh yeah, also he's a really nice guy and is easy to talk to. That goes a long way, especially compared to some of the other lawyers I observed in the court house when I was there.

Very knowledgeable lawyer
Contacted Mr. Wang concering a speeding ticket. Was very quick to respond and laid out the situation at hand in a very clear and detailed way. He came highly recommended and definitely deliveredin that regard. I want to be clear and state that I didn't hire Mr Wang, but he definitely have me a complete consultation that explained how clear cut my situation was and didn't really require any legal counsel. Definitely would be my first choice for a lawyer if ever needed.

Great, kind, knowledgeable lawyer
Mr. Wang did a wonderful job in representing my daughter, the catch was, we live in NE, so when we found out we needed a lawyer, without knowing by word of mouth, who we could count on, I did a lot of research before hiring Ken. When I spoke with Ken on the phone, I knew he was the right choice. I would recommend him to assist anyone, from any state. The state of Illinois has some very strict traffic violation laws and Mr Wang was able to take our case and we only had to make one trip to Joliet, the rest we communicated by phone or email and he explained everything every step of the way. We got a favorable outcome that we may not have received without Ken's knowledge and experience . . .and as a worried mother, he was so kind to me and my daughter to relieve our anxiety.
