Thank you Attorney Tsong
My family consulted and then hired Attorney Tsong for our case. He was very diligent, professional and understanding. He and his staff were very prompt in returning our calls or email messages. The whole process was very smooth till the end, yet the fee was very reasonable. I highly recommend him!

Thank you Mr. Tsong
Mr Tsong was sent to represent me when he was a State Government Attorney. He was very professional, calm and to the point, but yet very sympathetic to my case. He understood very clearly the circumstances and situation at the workplace and guided me thru the legal process to help protect me and my legal rights. In doing all this we won the case.
