Exemplary Attorney
Lalit is a very knowledgeable attorney with a heart of gold. He succinctly explained what I needed to do after the untimely death of my 35 year old son. An outstanding professional who treated this bereaved mother with kindness and understanding. I highly recommend without reservation Lilit Kundani.

Knowledgeable Attorney for Kids Protection Plan
Lalit Kundani at Kundani and Chang helped my husband and I with a Kids Protection Plan for my two youngest boys a little under a year ago. He was so informative throughout the entire process, answering questions promptly and providing feedback. Legal matters can be intimidating but working with professionals as Mr. Kundani who are knowledgeable and trustworthy make the process much easier.

Excellent results from my personal injury case
"Whew... I am glad Lalit did all the work for me. I couldn't have succeeded dealing with insurance companies without Lalit's help. Lalit walked me through the process and helped me settled the case. Bravo !!"

Kundani & Chang LLP is the BEST!
My husband suffered from a personal injury while overseas. Due to jurisdiction, almost all local legal firms/lawyers near our home base would not take our case (we live in the NYC area) which would require working with the other lawyers overseas and possibly taking the trial to court in the country where my husband was injured. However, Mr. Kundani of Kundani & Chang LLP cared for my husband's experience and took our challenging case. Throughout the case, he showed great leadership and pride where my husband and I clearly felt a sense of high-level trust and confidence in his work. Mr. Kundani worked hard to ensure we would receive a fair settlement and kept us in the loop with every step or decision. There were times during the case that Mr. Kundani thought we were at a loss. Yet, his perseverance and integrity led to a successful outcome. It is hard to find a lawyer that you can trust or that you fear will rip you off in legal fees, but Kundani & Chang LLP is just the opposite. They were honest, professional, detailed, and organized. Mr. Kundani exceeded our expectations and there is no doubt that we would turn to him when we need to take legal action again.

Highly recommend
I cannot say enough great things about the Kundani & Chang law firm. For my case, they first thoroughly and clearly explained to me each step of the process, what information they will need from me and why, and how the opposing party might respond. After the initial meeting, I communicated mostly with Lalit. He set realistic expectations. He was very detailed, and I found him to be very honest and straightforward. It was a real pleasure working with him. Regardless of the outcome I would have said these exact words. In my case though, Kundani & Chang actually won much more than I ever expected! I highly, highly recommend them. Best experience ever!

Best estate planning attorney in the OC!
My husband and I found out about Kudnani & Chang after I delivered with our second. They did a webinar on legal guardianship for kids. We contacted them to create a Kids protection plan that would ensure legal guardians for my kids were named in case anything happened to me or my husband. My sister did something similar and we were just expecting a simple document but the whole packet/binder is very professional that they did for us. There was also a lot of other things they covered for us that we never thought about!! It took a couple weeks to get everything done but the process is very easy and painless. I've referred all of our friends with kids there too and they take care of everyone. The most important thing for us was peace of mind and I would strongly recommend them again.

Great experience on my estate plan
Our family did an estate plan many years back when my wife and me bought a house. We wanted to update it to include our kids in case something happened to us. We also bought some other properties that needed to be added. A coworker colleague of mine referred Lalit Kundani so I called and we met with him for an initial 2 hour consultation (free). He went over my old plan and pointed out things where actually the law changed and why my plan would cost more. We didn't realize how much the law on this stuff changes pretty frequently so you either need to be on top of it yourself or get an attorney who will review your plans for you. Long story short, I ended up redoing my plan completely instead of updating it, to take advantage of some of the tax savings with these recent changes. The plan cost about double what I had paid initially, but worth every penny. My old plan would have sent my assets to probate and my old attorney basically had a "set it and forget it" mentality. Kundani & Chang said they will go through my docs regularly and let me know when the law changes and things need to be updated. Great experience working with him, they know their stuff!!

Exceptional Attorney
Lalit is an extremely thorough and knowledgeable attorney. He outlined a plan of action to take care of a criminal matter that my brother had pending against him. With his help and the help of his partner, my brother's criminal case was dealt with in the quickest and smoothest way with no jail time. I would highly recommend him and his firm.

Living Trust--Consultancy
We consulted Mr Lalit Kundani for our Living Trust and he was just excellent in giving us the right advice. He explained us all the details very well. In my 47 years of stay in USA, I haven't met a lawyer like him who is so precise, knowledgeable and good in his work at this young age. I was highly impressed and will definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

A very professional service experience
I was involved in a real estate dispute where I had to file a lien for some unpaid services rendered. I am very lucky to have found Mr. Kundani to represent me. During the entire process, he took me step by step, doing everything by the book, helped me file the lien correctly and helped me actually filed a complaint after that. And then he took on the negotiations with the other party, after some effort, they agreed to settle after negotiations done for me by Mr. Kundani. He was very direct, and straight forward, and I like to add very effective in negotiations. Without his ability to go head to head with the other party on my behalf, I would not have reached the satisfactory settlement that I have gotten now. I recommend Mr. Kundani, if you ever have any legal disputes, do talk to him, even if you're not sure about your position, he will tell you exactly where you stand and what you need to do. He is great, not only as an attorney, but a passionate relentless person. Got things done for me, very happy with his services, and very grateful for his help in my case.

(3) He always goes extra miles and exceeds your expecation on the result of your case. He's more like a good friend. I highly recommend Mr. Kundani to anyone who needs a PI attorney!

Kundani & Chang, LLP will guide and treet you right! - Honest, Understanding, Experienced.
After doing some research and discussing the issue with my wife, we knew that estate planning and child guardianship was something important for our family. I contacted Lalit at Kundani & Chang, LLP, and was quite impressed with the flow of knowledge he provided. He was very thorough by explaining possible scenarios and put forth an easy to understand planning process. He was very patient during the paper work portion of the guardianship meeting and we look forward to working with him on the latter portion of the estate planning. We are very satisfied with our choice in having Kundani & Chang's Law services support us in protecting our family's hard work and provide us with peace of mind. Trust, reliability, and building a relationship are important to my family. It's what helps us and who we deal with, grow together towards a positive future. We experienced a great sense of comfort with Lalit and his team, and we are happy that he has helped us with these important family decisions. We really appreciate your guidance and look forward to continue working with you. Thank you Lalit!

Above & Beyond
Lalit Kundani is one of those rare and special types who go above and beyond the call of duty. My company consulted with Lalit on a complicated and frustrating legal issue and he really helped clarify our situation in layman's terms so we could understand our options (and the ramifications of each option) to make the best decision in the end. He is a smart, likable guy who spent more time on our case that we expected and whom we would highly recommend.

Excellent estate planning lawyer
I recently had the pleasure of working with Lalit from Kundani & Chang LLP for some family planning work; Lalit was a huge help. He was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He fully understands what it takes to properly put together a child protection plan, explained all the options, and went the extra mile to ensure we fully understood all the details and made all the right decisions. He helped our family rest more easily knowing our kids are protected in the case of all kinds of life events. Thank you Kundani & Chang!

They were able to fight off the lawsuit very quickly without occurring much attorney fees at all. I felt that Kundani & Chang was truly on my side and provided services for my best interest.

Vehicle Collision Settlement
I was rear-ended last August and suffered injuries that resulted in high medical bills. I also had to take several weeks off work because of the pain. Lalit knew exactly what to do to help me, and was able to negotiate an excellent settlement on my behalf. He was considerate and answered all my questions along the way. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family!
