Excellent, Diligent and Detail Oriented Attorney
Finding attorney Hyung Choi is like winning the jackpot! Mr. Choi is an aggressive, hard working, honest, detail oriented and diligent attorney. He represented me this year in a roofing case against an adjuster. Unlike other lawyers, Mr. Choi makes you feel as if your case matters not just your money. He is always available if you have questions and keeps clients updated on the status of their case. Besides having the peace of mind that my case was in the best hands I was very pleased with what a wonderful person Mr. Choi is. I would 100% recommend him for any consumer protection or personal injury cases.

Dealership nightmare, but I got down payment back!!
In the middle of May 2022 I signed a purchase agreement for a vehicle from a dealership. Two weeks later the car we can having mechanical issues. After a few days of the vehicle being in the shop the service manager informed me that there's no warranty. (Contract shows that it was an add on) The sales manager then contacted me and told me that they can make a new deal with me but it will require an additional down payment. I asked for a refund of my down payment and they said they were not able to do that since I had driven the vehicle for x amount of miles. Later they agreed to a partial refund. I was scheduled to get my belongings from the vehicle today, July 6, 2022. It has been a stressful two weeks and I had just about given up on getting my full down payment back. I came across Mr. Choi's contact information and I sent him and three other attorneys an inquiry. Mr. Choi responded within minutes! I thought for a second that it was an automatic response. But no, it was truly him. I gathered the purchase agreement / contract documents and set up a time to meet him within a couple hours from initial contact! He also considered my economic situation when setting up the consultation fee. I appreciated the consideration However, for my situation, the fee felt a bit high. I'll tell you right now, it was worth every penny!! During the consultation he reviewed the documents with me. Pointed out some important things that I hadn't paid attention to or fully understood on my own. My questions and concerns were promptly and thoroughly addressed. One of the things that really stuck out to me was when he said "your rights are their obligation (dealership)"! My financial situation is less than favorable and the dealership made me feel like they were doing me a favor. So that comment meant a lot to me. Mr Choi advised me on how to handle the situation and what wording to use when talking to the dealership. I followed his advice. After a struggle and being cursed at by one of the managers I continued to stand my ground. I felt confident doing so because Mr. Choi had explained to me my rights and reviewed the terms and conditions of the binding contract. The dealership was not happy but refunded my FULL DOWN PAYMENT! This would not have been possible without our consultation. The fee I paid to meet with Mr Choi was an great investment! I did not retain him as an attorney because his advice was truly valuable in getting justice for myself. Thank you all very much for your time, patience, and assistance. I will recommend your firm to anyone I know who might be dealing with a similar situation. Oh, yes, I can't leave out Daniel. The person who answered the phone at the law firm. Compliments to him as well. He was kind and professional. What a great team!

Professional, swift, and easy services
I was referred to Hyung by a family member after a car accident that had caused me some pain and discomfort. Hyung met with me promptly after reaching out to schedule an appointment. Within a couple of days he and his team were hard at work helping me to get reimbursed for my medical bills. Communication between each other was very clear and I was constantly informed of my progress with my claim. It was nice to have someone on my side who was professional, yet interacted with me on a person-to-person level. I felt like I was represented the best I could be by Hyung and his team. If I am ever in the need of future services, he will be the first person I go to. I have zero reservations about recommending him to anybody who may need his services. Thank you!

Highly Recommended
I cannot speak highly enough about Hyung Choi. After consulting with him and his partner, they took my case against a car dealership that had failed to live up to their end of an agreement. The case was not easy, but in the end the arbitrator ruled in our favor. The legal advice and guidance they provided to my wife and I throughout the process showed they genuinely cared about us and our case. Always responsive and honest with us from start to finish, we could not have done it without them.

Identity Theft
My Choi represented me after I was served for a credit card balance that was opened fraudulently in my name. Throughout the entire process, he was insightful, incredibly helpful, and made the entire process seamless. I would 10/10 recommend him for any identity/fraud issues.

A Winning Lawyer
Mr. Choi represented me in an auto crash case. He was diligent and kept me well informed about the case. When he felt the settlement offers were not fair, he filed a lawsuit and took the case all the way to the arbitration hearing. Mr. Choi was well organized and well prepared for the hearing with a great witness. The insurance defense lawyer did not have a chance. We were able to settle the case after the hearing. I am very satisfied with the result.

Mr. Choi represented me in a dispute with a bank. It was a difficult case with unusual facts. He was very responsive and achieved a good result. I am so happy with him and would have him represent me again, if needed.

The best lawyer in Arizona!
I had the pleasure of working with Choi & Fabian on an injury claim for injuries that I sustained in a car accident. I had no idea what to expect out of this whole process, but they were so professional and kept my mind at ease throughout the entire process. He treated me like family instead of like another client, and when I had surgery he made sure everything was well and constantly checked on me. It’s hard to find attorneys that care for you, but Choi & Fabian make it a point to go above and beyond for their clients. I can’t thank them enough. I had no worries thanks to them.

False and Derogatory postings to Credit Reporting agencies removed!
A creditor posted false and derogatory information to our otherwise perfect credit profiles with Transunion, Experian and Equifax. After Mr. Choi's professional assistance, all three Credit Reporting agencies have promptly removed the false and derogatory information from our files and our reputation and fico scores have returned to previous untarnished condition. We can't thank Mr. Choi enough.

Exceptional Lemon Law Representation
Attorney Choi provided exceptional service and was able to obtain a very favorable outcome in a matter against a luxury auto manufacturer. He made the lemon law process simple and completely worry-free; as a busy professional myself, his level of service in this regard was invaluable. His level of responsiveness was beyond that of any attorney I have ever encountered. I cannont recommend him more highly!

Above and Beyond
Me and my wife were at the end of our ropes. We felt as if everything was collapsing around us with all of our bills adding up. Our lawyer helped lighten that load for us for years to come and I can't be more satisfied with the outcome of our case. We felt as if a big time dealership was trying to take advantage of us and our lawyer made sure that didn't continue to happen. He fought for us and what was right, and in the end, the truth came out. Me and my wife would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need of help against big time dealerships.
