Best Auto Accident Attorney in California
Throughout my automobile accident claim, Mr. Kim explained everything to me in detail and really kept me informed. I know that attorneys are notoriously known for not communicating with their clients in a timely fashion, but Mr. Kim was the complete opposite. He truly is a rare gem of an attorney. He told me that he would be accessible 24/7 and he sure did not disappoint. When I had a question about something, I emailed him and he responded immediately. Throughout my recovery process of going to see a chiropractor, physical therapist, and orthopedist, I had a lot of stress. Mr. Kim alleviated much of my stress by explaining how everything would work out. When your mind is at ease, your body follows. Although I cannot control the situation of me being involved in a terrible accident, I could, however, control the attorney I hire. Retaining Mr. Kim's legal services was the best decision of my life. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an aggressive advocate who is very compassionate to clients, and moreover, will maximize your claim compensation.

Attorney Daniel Kim provides superb informative legal services!
I've worked with Mr. Kim on a couple of my auto accident cases, call me unlucky but he makes the process smooth and easy. All I had to do was go to my doctor appointments and Mr. Kim explained in detail why certain things had to be done a certain way. I never got that kind of service from the attorneys I used before. At the end of each case, I knew exactly where my settlement money went and how much each provider was paid, he even went out of his way to reduce the providers bill and got me more money. I highly reccommend Mr. Kim's legal services.

Best motor vehicle accident lawyer
My family and I were in a car accident at the fault of someone else. We didn’t know how to handle everything with a severely damaged vehicle, medical bills, etc. Finally, a family member recommended we contact Daniel Kim. He took care of everything for us. We got our car fixed, medical bills paid and a settlement. He made it easy for use. Highly Recommended!

Great Methodical Process to ensure a Fair Fighting Chance
Daniel Kim’s Law Firm is a very structed law firm with multiple teams to handle your case. I was first told how the process worked and I was all on board. With how methodical and structed their process was, it was no wonder why they have a high success rate. My current accident involved me riding on my motorcycle and a Tesla bumping me out of my split lane. Had major injuries, but came out alive. Called Daniel Kim’s Law Firm, and was prompted with what seemed like an intake person on their team. Vetted my story and I believe contacted the attorneys on DK Law Firm. Daniel Kim personal called which was a great touch and reassured me that they are on the case. After going through the intake process I was then refereed to a chiropractor and MRI to assess further my injuries. Daniel Kim’s Law Firm Medical team was on top of what needed to be done to get the best chance out of the case. Unfortunately the police report had found me at fault even though I sustained major injuries while the car left with a dent. Even though the case did not continue Daniel Kim’s Law Firm gave it their best shot, and for that I am thankful. Recommend Daniel Kim’s Law Firm for an evaluation then if you think you can win I highly would go with them to represent you.

Thanks for your help, Daniel Kim!
We worked with Daniel Kim and he was very adamant about helping us get the best result. It was an accident where the fault was on the other person and he helped us to receive good settlement, find the best doctors, met with us one on one, and messaged us when we had questions. Grateful that we decided to do an attorney on the accident because he made sure all the bills were paid and he was very generous in helping us receive what we needed. Thanks again Daniel Kim for your help!

Amazing experience
Daniel Kim is my first experience with law of any sorts. However, I felt that he was someone who would get the results that I would expect from a true professional. I had the opportunity to see his presentation of my case, and it was amazing. His thorough nature of leaving no stone unturned when giving facts and his persistence on getting what he believes is a just result left a lasting effect. Besides the fact he is a very nice man, I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants top results.

Very open and honest, easy to reach
I was overwhelmed after the accident and very confused. I spoke to Daniel Kim and he said his office would take care of everything on the claim and that I just needed to worry about getting better and recovering from my injuries. They didn't view me as a client, they viewed me as a person, always concerned about my wellbeing. I highly recommend them.

Great firm
Daniel Kim worked on my personal injury/auto claim file. He was very respectful and professional, ensured I was always informed on the status of my file and that I understood the "legalese" without feeling like he was condescending to me. The outcome of the file was very favorable and very fair. I would definitely recommend this firm.

Exceeded my expectations
I was in need of representation due to an injury sustained in an auto accident, and was referred to Daniel Kim by an associate. Not knowing what to expect, I was very pleased at how thorough, and helpful Daniel has been throughout this process. His understanding of the process, and attention to detail was very reassuring to me. The resolution of my claim far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend his service.

Very patient and helpful
I was so depressed and disappointed being in my situation, I did not know how everything was going to turn out. But, Daniel Kim was so patient and very helpful in explaining to me what was going on every step of the way. Even when I communicated with him through email I can feel the concern and his willingness to make sure I understood and was comfortable throughout the entire process. I will refer them to anyone in my situation and I personally will use them again if I have.

Highly recommended
My girlfriend and I were involved in a car accident returning home from a friend's birthday party in Long Beach. We contacted Daniel Kim who was recommended to me by a friend who had previously hired Daniel for his bicycle accident case. Daniel was awesome right from the start! He welcomed my friend and I into the office, answered all of our questions, and clearly explained the process going forward. Daniel Kim is trustworthy and he really knows what he's doing! So glad we hired Daniel Kim to represent us in our case!
