Professional and Effective
I am very grateful to CTK law group, especially Jonathan Chan, Esq., for helping me fight against a baseless accusation. At first I was very scared and did not know what to do, but upon contacting Jonathan, he was at my doorstep within an hour (literally) to discuss our strategy to deal with this matter. His professionalism and keen sense of the law put me at ease and gave me a huge sense of relief. This allowed me to focus on my work and personal life without having the case weighing in the back of mind, for which I am very grateful! Jonathan gave me a piece of mind and came through for me when I needed help! Thanks again!

I called Mr. Chan with a situation involving prop 19 and parent to child transfers. Even though he was not professionally able to help me, because his practice did not cover my situation. He went out of his way to listen to my request. Then he laid out a specific course of action that would enable me to achieve my goal.

Friendly supportive representation
I retained Jonathan to represent me in a dispute with a former employer that I preferred to settle in a friendly manner. Jonathan listened carefully, asked great questions, and helped me understand the ramifications of each decision I needed to make. Jonathan's warm and low-key approach made a potentially very stressful situation less stressful. We ended up with the friendly resolution that I wanted, despite some hotheads on the other side. All along, I was very impressed with Jonathan's dedication to supporting the "small guy" when the other side has more resources. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Highly recommend Jonathan!
After reviewing attorneys on Avvo.com, I contacted Jonathan Chan at CTK Law for assistance. During the first phone call with Jonathan, I knew I had made the right decision. Jonathan is highly knowledgeable, timely, diligent, straight forward, HONEST, and easy to converse with. I appreciated his explanations, options, and prompt follow up with my matter. From beginning to end his work ethic was solid. I would recommend Jonathan and CTK Law to anyone in need of an attorney and I have peace knowing that if I never need an attorney again, Jonathan is a phone call away. He really is an exceptional attorney!

Hard working and extremely helpful
I am so thankful that I found Jonathan. I was falsely accused by my patients and got many false reviews and comment against my practice on a Friday late afternoon. I spoke with Jonathan about my worries and he sensed the urgency , so he worked over the weekend to draft the document I needed to stop the opposing party’s slandering. His prompt reply and professionalism gave me huge confidence and peace of mind. I am very grateful that I have an attorney who can help with my business. Highly recommended

Cost-Conscious, Ethical, Very Responsive, & Hard Working Lawyer!
Was lucky to find Jonathan here on avvo.com. I called him in the morning and had a consult arranged that same afternoon. Most lawyers take weeks to get back to you; not Jonathan. He outlined my options based upon the strength of my case and my costs for each option. He repeatedly showed his concern for my pocket book; loved that! His high ethics, intelligence, and transparency were readily clear. Moreover, it was my pleasure to know there is a lawyer who does NOT want my blood, bank account, home, and first born child! Thank you for your assistance Jonathan!

Amazing Work!
I want to say that Mr. Chan is one of the best lawyers in the business. He is one of the most diligent, fast responding, and down-to-Earth lawyers I have met. He was able to quickly de-escalate and help me protect myself and I am so thankful that I went with Mr. Chan to represent me. He was able to write a perfect cease and desist letter that exemplified and help protect me from potential damages in the future. Best of all, Mr. Chan, completed the letter within a few days. The letter itself explained and detailed everything that was needed. Mr. Chan is an excellent lawyer as well as an individual that connects well with his clients. I am thankful for Mr. Chan’s work and the letter that he provided, he is an incredible lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer (very thorough)
I needed help regarding an employment separation agreement and called Jonathan Chan later in the day about this; he called me back right away. We then met in person about my case (he was on time for our appointment) and he listened very carefully to everything I had to say, was very kind and did not rush me. I decided to retain him after our meeting and he followed up immediately with the other party regarding my case and promptly informed me of the status of my case without me having to do any further follow up (my case is now closed). I recommend Jonathan for your legal needs; he is very prompt, a precise communicator and extremely professional. Thank you.

Amazing Non-Disclosure Agreement work
As a small business owner, our customer information and goods are at the heart of our business. CTK Law Group assisted us in drafting a customized Non-Disclosure Agreement for our distribution business. Our NDA is very detailed and Jonathan and Ramond explained all of the key details to us. I couldn’t have done it without their tremendous effort! Thank you for saving me from last-minute trouble!
