He showed genuine interest in my case
Yong conducted extensive research and investigations on my behalf which led to keeping and maintaining my freedom. During my case which lasted over 11 months, he showed genuine interest in me and my families well being. He is hands down one of the greatest professional mentors who will definitely fight and fight hard for his clients. I hired Mr. Yong because the lawyer I had representing me initially could not give me a solid plan on his intent for my case, and if I hadn't of moved on from him, I most definitely wouldn't have had the outstanding outcome that I have attained through and that's because of Mr. Yong. THANK you much!

I'm very thankful that I chose Mr. Yong as my lawyer
I'm very thankful that I chose Mr. Yong as my lawyer. He was able to set a schedule and follow through to get the desired result in my case. From the very beginning he was very straight forward and honest. He kept me updated on my criminal case and was able to reach a favorable outcome despite any complications. He was very straight forward and friendly, and I'm extremely happy that he tied things up so well at the end.

I would highly recommend Yong as an attorney!
I contacted Yong about getting a felony DWI expunged from my record. It was previously denied and was also a difficult case. I had contacted another attorney who told me I was wasting my time and money and that it would be denied. Yong was upfront and honest and told me it would be difficult, but he would put together a solid case. After his persistence and building a great case, we won the expungement hearing! Yong's professionalism was second to none and he kept me informed at all times. If I ever had a question, Yong would respond immediately. I would highly recommend Yong as an attorney!

If you need a lawyer, Yong J An is the one to call!
If you need a criminal case attorney, Yong J An is the one for you. We know this because he represented a family member of ours on more than one occasion, and he always did an outstanding job. And I do mean outstanding! He is experienced. He knows the law inside and out, and he explains the procedures of the legal system in easy-to-understand terms. If you need help in a legal situation, he will be your best advocate.

Thank you Mr. Yong!
We had never needed an attorney before and we were so happy with Yong. Our son had a DUI and Mr. Yong helped us with the city and in the court system so that this issue would not follow our son after his probation ended. We worked with Mr. Yong for 2 years and I have given his name out to many others in need of someone they can talk to and trust.

I owe you so much Mr. Yong!
Mr. Yong was the best choice for me . He has handled 2 criminal cases for me and was very attentive, and extremely knowledgeable of the legal system. Mr. Hagen looked at every possible scenario for my situations and even went to trial and was able to clear me of all charges. I owe you so much Mr. Yong!

Criminal Case Defender
Our son found himself in trouble with the law. My wife and I had no experience in these situations. We found Yong online, interviewed him and quickly felt comfortable in retaining his services in helping our son. Yong made us all feel comfortable and he took the time to explain to all of us the many scenarios that could take place. Yong walked us through step by step regarding the court process and the expectations of us as parents and most importantly the expectations of our son. Our son is on the right path thanks to Yong's help and advice.

I would highly recommend him
When I get a tough case and don’t know who to refer my clients to I often look to the law office of Mr. Yong. He is dedicated to figuring out those hard questions and won’t just settle. I recently referred a criminal case to him and the client was very happy with his outcome. Mr. Yong offers individualized results and custom plans of action when it comes to representing his clients. I would highly recommend him as the person to hire in a criminal case.

Criminal Case
Mr. Yong is an amazing attorney. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He really helped me understand the process and all of my options, as well as breakdown the legal jargon on the paperwork that sounded completely foreign to me. I am very appreciative to his hard work and dedication and will be sure to send everyone I know his way if they are ever in need.

Top notch Criminal Defense Attorney services!
The Court System is not the most relaxing thing to be involved in, but Mr. Yong has to be the one disrupter when it comes to law as he is the most helpful, honest, and direct to solution type of guy that it was almost shocking the response I got from him compared to other criminal lawyers in the area. He got the results he said he was going to get, while keeping me calm and clear minded. Thank you Mr. Yong for your top notch Criminal Defense Attorney services!

He provided an easy to read contract!
Yong An did a great job in representing me before the Texas BON. There were some allegations about my professional misconduct. It was Mr. Yong An who helped me deal with this matter. He provided an easy to read contract wherein we formalized our client-attorney relationship. Aside from this, he also made me realize that I do not need to pay expensive professional fees.Thank you Yong!

Very friendly and accommodating!
Mr. Yong has a special way of knowing how to approach a particular case before the The Board of Nurse. He knows how certain personalities on the Board can affect a case. He was very impressive when he handled the case. At the same time, his also very friendly and accommodating.

He certainly knows how to uphold the rights of the accused!
For the past year, Mr.Yong was the counsel who represented my son in different proceedings in court. His expertise in the criminal law enabled him to make fast negotiations with the state. He was able to reduce the probation period of my son.He certainly knows how to uphold the rights of the accused or defendants in any case. Thumbs up Mr. Yong.

Thank you Mr. Yong!
Mr. Yong did everything in his power to make sure that I wasn't convicted of a crime I didn't commit and always kept me informed and updated on where we were with the case. Because of Yong, I'm now able to spend time with my family and live the life I deserve.

Highly recommended
I had a complaint to the board about 6 months ago and Mr. Yong was the first lawyer I contacted for the complaint and he worked with me completely for payment spreading it across 6 months instead of a large lump sum. Also, he was very precise about what he needed and my statement and very time efficient! My statement would’ve gotten me in more trouble probably but his knowledge and intuition of how it should be worded is what helped my case completely! I didn’t receive a warning or nothing... Board closed the case! So, I will be getting malpractice insurance and calling him up again if i ever needed too and sending anyone I come across to him in need of a fabulous medically trained lawyer!

Amazing Lawyer
I had been falsely accused of fraudulently creating a chart on a potentially violent patient without actually seeing the patient. Mr.Yong subpoenaed the video tapes from my shift and disproved the claim as the footage confirmed that I was with the patient. Not only was I not charged with fraud, but all accusations of fraud were removed from my record, including from the filed complaint. Highly recommended
