Excellent Results Oriented Attorney
Ed represented me in an age discrimination suit when I was terminated by my employer of 14 years. He was aggressively litigated my case an obtained extraordinary results for me! He is a personable and professional but "calls it as he sees it" and does not "beat around the bush". I am so grateful that he represented me in my case. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of highly skilled employment lawyer. You will be in great hands.

MY PERSONAL DREAM TEAM
My lawyer Ed H Yun went above and way beyond and back for me lol and my case. Have no clue how this man did it with the mess he was going against but he shut it down and he did what he was hired to do if not that more. To come in wondering who is going to help me with what I was left with and to be rescued by someone who not only re assured me everything was going to be okay but who took time to care. The whole firm was exceptional from the receptionists who checked on me to make sure im okay and send encouraging words to the other attorneys who also just took my case seriously and guided me through this storm. My mom called them "The Dream Team" I just called them angels. I gained people who worked hard for my case and me who never gave up who kept going no matter how the other side was not budging. I couldn't be more greatful and I would not have won my case had it not been for my lawyer and this firm. It is a pleasure to give a huge compliment as you call a review. Everyone needs someone who not only cares about getting you what you deserve but having someone who literally fights for you is compassionate who never gives up and cares about their client all together. I looked around for other attorneys but was led to this firm by intuition and of course god. Brings me to tears how much they care like the whole firm went after the other side felt freaking amazing guess I did have my own Dream Team I love them and again thank you so much Ed for knowing my pain helping me through it all along side talking to me about everything. Nothing was left out with them. They will HELP you they actually CARE about you. I always said the chemistry between client and lawyer has to be right because then you know it will be a good fight. Words can not express how much I really love this firm and what they truly are about. They were magical like I had fairy god attorneys if that makes any sense. My lawyer kicked butt he is one bad attorney he is not to be played with lol. I learned so much about my case and just the experience had ups and downs but Ed you kept me motivated you kept me updated you were my rock man and I want to just say Thank you I love you forever if there is an award for BEST ATTORNEY EVER it would go to this lawyer. He amazed me how he dis not take no for an answer he saw what they did to me and went after them full force he saw my pain and took me in. Our second meeting sitting across the table I knew this was going to be my lawyer. And can I say he is the coolest person he is just a real guy almost like a friend is helping you. He became that much during this rough time. Even when things got tough I knew I would be good because I trusted him and he never let me down he kept me in beast mode to keep going he was more then an attorney he was special to me my very own guardian angel he means so much to me times where I wanted to give up he or this firm wouldn't let me. Blew my mind each personin that office cared that much about clients and would email or call you. I never recieved so much support love and just I could not have won without them just greatful for them makes the world we live in a better place because its people like Edward H Yun who whole heartedly care that in itself is the best thing I recieved a clear perspective of how im really not alone. Amazing amazing people god sent them my way for a reason. To everyone I encountered and who worked on my case THANK YOU!!!!!!!! BEST LAW FIRM ON THIS PLANET THAT CARE ABOUT YOU GENUINLY PICK THEM YOU GET RESULTS LIKE YOU NEVER COULD IMAGINE THEY ARE WHO YOU WANT TO GO BEFORE YOU AND FIGHT THEY GET THE JOB DONE I RECOMMEND THEM HIGHLY. THOSE AWARDS FOR EACH YEAR THEY WON IN ARE SITTING ON THAT DESK WHEN YOU WALK IN FOR A REASON!

The very best
I normally do not take the time to do reviews ,but I would hate for someone in need of the very best attorney miss out . Edward and Sevahn are such caring people. They took the time to understand all the details involved in my case ,which was just as important to me as the case it's self. If you are looking for the best in their field look no further. Looking back I "m so thankful to have found them. Thank you both for making a terrible time in my life ,better.

Top Notch all the Way
Edward Yun handled my case with panache, in 2009. And I say this, recalling a number of screaming matches between Mr. Yun and I as he tried to take a difficult client (me) and mold her into a polished plaintiff. My case involved a company that fired me after my boss harassed me for following my physician’s advice to treat my PTSD; and because of his negative views of immigrants of Latino descent. My ex was applying for asylum, I was suffering the symptoms of PTSD and being treated for it. And my boss saw this as an opportunity to retaliate against me and violate my rights in the workplace. The totality of my boss’s behavior and our history with my ex’s immigration case created a complicated case for Mr. Yun. Mr. Yun not only built my case, step by step, with expertise and precision. But he sought out the previous women that my boss had demeaned, showing a pattern of retaliatory behavior. Indeed, he also exposed the line up of corporate witnesses who the company organized to provide a defense for this man. He tore their stories down, one by one, in depositions. Exposing a pattern of deceit and demonstrating a trail of cover up. More than that, Mr. Yun stood by me, when many attorneys probably would have dropped the case, during some rather difficult times for me. He got me what I needed. I still smile when I think about our shouting matches. We are two different people with strong convictions. But the fact is, he was correct in everything he argued with me over. I can’t thank him enough for giving me back the confidence to succeed in life.

Working with a difficult defense team
During the course of my lawsuit, I became ill with cancer. Ed kept me informed and helped me make decisions that made sense to me and definitely reflected my desires. He worked diligently to ensure that the outcome was positive without adding to the stress I was experiencing health-wise. At the beginning of the case, I discussed with him the outcome I considered fair and he moved in that direction, fighting valiantly to achieve that goal. He did not bother me with minor details but made informed decisions that moved the case forward. He was able to work with a very difficult defensive team never losing sight of our goal despite the defense's unwillingness to even negotiate. A lawsuit is never without stress or upset and Ed did an amazing job of protecting my interests, moving the case to a positive outcome and protecting me. I highly recommend him!

Gets results
This guy is amazing. I've worked with a few attorneys before, and the two things I always look at are (1) service and (2) results. Worst case scenario is to get neither. Most often you'll get at least one of the two, and you just live with that. But Ed knocked it out of the park on both ends. After meeting with him, all I needed to do was give him the evidence I had (as messy as I'd kept it, papers all over the place), show up for my deposition, and take a few short phone calls here and there. The next thing I knew, he'd helped me obtain a great settlement - certainly more than I'd expected. Anyway, I don't see how you can go wrong with Ed. Great guy too - bought me lunch during my deposition when I realized I'd left my wallet in my car.

BEST LAWYER
I interviewed a lot of lawyers and picked Edward Yun to represent me for my wrongful termination. I picked him because from the beginning he seemed to really care about me. I worked for a major corporation for 10 years who terminated me because I refused to be picked on. From the beginning to the end he has always look out for my wellbeing and if I was not only satisfied but happy with my results. I have never worked with a lawyer who went above and beyond, even after the case settle he called to see if we had any questions. He won me more money than I thought I could win and believed in me.

Veteran harassed and terminated
I am a Military Veteran, who went out on medical leave from a devastating injury I sustained while serving in the Army. Having endured many years of being bullied, and harassed by my civilian employers, my job was terminated, while I was re-cooperating from surgery. I contacted various lawyers seeking advice on what I could do regarding my termination. Simply put I was told, “To just move on, my case was hopeless.” Weidmann & Yun did not see it as such and took my case on with no upfront fees. Edward Yun helped me stay realistic and focused on key points in my case. Edward Yun and his team worked diligently and relentlessly, while going up against a major corporation and their many attorneys. The out-come after a few short months Weidmann & Yun won a very, very large settlement on my behalf. If you are the underdog at work being harassed, bullied, abused, or your rights not being upheld by your employer, this is the attorney and firm you want to hire. I highly recommend their services.

Great outcome
I must say that once my case got started my lawyer was on top of everything that was needed and asked. Once the court date was in Edward Yun new what he was talking about, and what ever they came with he was right back on it without a thought. I was very happy with my case and glad Edward Yun was my lawyer. If I was to ever need him again for a case like mine I will call him no questions asked. He told me what we was going in with and what we wanted to come out with. We got just that.

I cant complain
I do not have any complaints, they took my case when no no one else would and handled it more professionally than any attorneys ive had in the past. Rate was high, but if you believe you get what you pay for then you should be pleased, I was with no complaints. Ed was even concerned if I was satisfied and was willing to take the case all the way if necessary.

Total Satisfaction
I am extremely happy to recommend Ed . I have never felt more comfortable with the handling of my case. At all times Ed and his group made me feel as I was their most important client. They were honest and fair with me and I was always kept totally up to date with all interactions that occurred. I could not have been more satisfied with the results and would always consider using Ed to seek any legal advice.

Respectful, Integrity
Unbeilivable, can not express enough how important it was for the lawyer working on my case to communicate with me. Every step of the way I was informed, allowed to be in on the decision making process, with guidance of course. My case was very nasty, but Ed was very professional, didn't allow the the facts to get lost in all the mumbo jumbo. And of course the firm shows what kind of leader it has in Mr. Yun. Thank you again.

Vindication wins over discrimination
Mr Yun is an attorney for the 21st century. He's professional , with a personable vibe that is relaxed when explaining the parameters of the law codes. He is very accessible and he knows how to be aggressive when championing his clients cases . I don't always need an employment attorney but when I do , it's Edward Yun.

“When you are truthful have no fear” when you have an attorney like Ed H Yun on your side
Edward H Yun is a great attorney. I was at the cross roads when I was fired from my job and didn’t know where to turn. It was God's blessing in disguise when I found him. He believed in me and gave me confidence. I doubt without him I wouldn’t have won my case for wrongful termination. He is very professional and very precise to the point.

Employment and labor Attorney | Mar 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"During my time as general counsel I sought Ed's advice on an employment issue. He was thorough but quick and provided us with great input on how we should handle the employment situation at hand. His knowledge of employment law is expansive and knows how to communicate it directly and effectively without making things complicated. I've known Ed professionally and personally for over a decade now. As a friend he is trustworthy and caring and as a professional he is dependable, intelligent and tough without the ego. I fully endorse him."
Employment and labor Attorney | Mar 14
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"It's not that common to find a lawyer who is really smart, super hard-working, and personable. I know from experience that Ed is one of these very few. Doesn't just know the law, but understands how to use the law strategically to achieve his clients' goals, which is really what being an effective lawyer is all about. I remember being in federal trial with Ed and witnessing first hand how he anticipated the opposition's key closing argument the night before and prepared the perfect counter that resulted in a jury win for our client. Can't endorse Ed highly enough."
