Best work comp attorney
My experience with Hong Law was extemeley phenomenal. He always answered my calls and I was always able to schedule an appointment to discuss my case with him personally. My case was very complex with many disputed issues. Mr. Hong was on top of everything and won every single issue in my case. Thank you Mr Hong for your excellent work!

Highly recommended!
I did a lot of research for workers comp attorneys and discovered Mr. Hong on this site. I'm so glad I did. I didn't know anything about the process and he explained everything to me. He was so patient and attentive. Thank goodness I found him when I did. I'm definitely in good hands and would recommend anyone to him.

Gave me Hope
Peter is the attorney sent from heaven. Just when I was ready to settle because I was sick of dealing with a terrible attorney, PLBSMH, and all the bureaucracy of the WC medical battle, I find this guy. Peter is calm, professional, knowledgeable and accessible. PLBSMH had my case for over one year and did nothing, but loose my deposition and returned 3 of my nearly 20 phone calls. Peter and his Burbank staff are fantastic!

Thumbs Up for Peter Hong
Peter is the best! He has a very calm and comforting demeanor, doesn't make you chase him down and is extremely informative and polite. But don't let that fool you. When it's time to fight for you, he's unbelievably effective. I would refer everyone to him. In fact, I just sent him a referral, because I know she'll be in great hands.

One Of The Greatest Attorneys Thus Far!
I found Mr. Hong on this site. And truly believe that GOD put him in my life for a reason. Mr.Hong listened to my situation and how I wasn't getting the help I need ;and he took my case. Mr. Hong is calm, cool, and collective. He explains the situation totally so you understand what is going on. I want to say thank you Mr. Hong. I'm less stressed, and more relaxed knowing that I'm in good hands now. If you want your case handled the right way ;l advise you to hire Peter Hong.
