Great Job Ilya!
I hired Ilya to write up a Client Agreement for me and had a great experience. Most impressive was his attention to detail and how thorough he was start to finish. As a Nutritionist, I don't speak in legal terms so upon receiving the first draft of this Client Agreement, I was instantly overwhelmed. Once I let him know, Ilya was quick to book a call and spent a generous amount of time going through each section and helping me fill out the document with a real-life example. By the end of the call, my overwhelm was lifted and I had a workable Client Agreement. I highly recommend hiring Ilya for your legal needs (especially if you are a business owner)!

Outstanding experience, highly recommended
Я работал со Zlatkin Wong LLP уже несколько раз для составления различных договоров для корпорации и остался очень доволен результатом. Илья ответственно подходит к делу, описывает различные варианты решения, их плюсы и минусы и помогает выбрать наиболее подходящее. Также я получал ответы на все вопросы, достаточно внимания и видел, что мне хотят помочь и ответственно относятся к работе. Сервис и качество работы на высшем уровне! Очень рекомендую! I have worked with Zlatkin Wong LLP several times over the last year on different post incorporation docs and contractor agreements. My experience was outstanding and I'm highly satisfied with their work. Ilya is very responsive and I was always getting answers to all my questions. He was helping me to find the best solution for my case describing different possible options with pros and cons. I was always getting enough attention and I felt like they are willing to help and do their best. The results of their work were excellent. Highly recommended!

The best Lawer ever!!!
I am happy to say that my case is over and my money was well spent. All the fees were very reasonable. From the first conversation to the last Mr Zlatkin was a trusted attorney and someone I could count on. He was straightforward, honest, kind, diligent and responsive . Again, thanks to Mr. Zlatkin for his brilliant work, now my case is settled, my life is back in order, and all of this behind me.

Don't choose anyone else!
I have been represented by Ilya Zlatkin for almost two years now relative to my screenwriting contracts with producers and managers. His legal services are top notch, and I used to be an attorney, so I know the good from the bad. This firm knows ALL of the ins and outs of the entertainment industry and the laws that apply to them, so I have had nothing but success in my dealings as a screenwriter. Much thanks to Ilya's kind and professional legal services. Moreover, their fees are reasonable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM!

Assisting with a promissory note
Илья профессионал своего дела с большой буквы. Он выручил меня в очень неприятной ситуации после того как предыдущий адвокат наделал много ошибок. Это могло мне стоить очень много денег, но благодаря Илье мы смогли вернуть все до копейки. С ним очень приятно работать, всегда на связи и отвечает на все вопросы в течении дня. С таким профессионалам чувствуешь себя под надежной защитой!

Very professional, knowledgeable and reliable
Mr. Zlatkin provided excellent guidance and legal support during the creation of my private investment company with holdings in general aviation and real estate. He also provided critical council and legal documentation for several business acquisitions. I would highly recommend Mr. Zlatkin.

A Rare Gem of a lawyer
You would be hard pressed to find a lawyer who does not recommend excessive legal action. Many lawyers pray on fear, but not Ilya! He even recommends no action in some cases. He is like the dentist who only wants to drill as a final option. Not only does he spend generous time taking care pf each client, but he genuinely cares about everyone and is a real hero among lawyers!

depth & care
I have over 15 experience in business and have worked with a few dozen attorneys. Some have been ok, others good, Ilya is the 1st great attorney I have worked with. He is young, but his depth & care make him one of our most valued partners. I have been blown away by efficiency of every project he takes on. He looks at our business as he would his own. Looking forward to many years of working together.

A pleasant first experience...
I recently decided to go out on my own in an entirely new field. Although I was able to stumble my way through a few preliminary things, I knew I needed help if I really wanted to create a successful business. I was referred to Ilya through a friend of mine and I couldn't be happier that I seized on the opportunity. Not only did he make things easier to digest, he did so in a non-condeceding, patient manner at a speed in which I could actually understand. He has continued to be a resource for me and is very quick to respond to my ever-growing list of questions. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone, especially those who have no idea what they are doing : )

Strongly recommend Ilya Zlatkin
Ilya Zlatkin is an outstanding attorney who I got to know in 2011-12 while he was an associate at the University of Richmond Intellectual Property Clinic. He soon demonstrated his expertise in this field as well as his detail-oriented and deeply conscientious work ethic. My university program worked with Mr. Zlatkin on a complicated intellectual property issue which entailed creating a grant agreement that outlined in detail the intellectual property rights of both granting agency and grantee. At every step in the process, Mr. Zlatkin communicated with me and advised me on best practices in the field. I cannot recommend him highly enough for his professionalism, his nuanced understanding of the issues, and his commitment to serving both his clients and the law.
