Professional, empathetic, and a relentless advocate...
Professional, empathetic, and a relentless advocate, Naomi took hold of my case and rid my life of an extremely detrimental problem. It's cliché but true: sometimes the mistakes of the past come back to haunt us. And after making a stupid mistake when I was 19 and being arrested, pleading no contest, completing my sentence, having my record expunged by the court, and staying out of trouble for 20 years, my record resurfaced. So much for expungement. A friend recommended I see Naomi. She listened intently, asked insightful and pertinent questions, and learned all she could from me. She tracked my 20-year-old case down (no small feat I'm told) and then came back with even more information from the court so she knew every inch of my dilemma. She gave me multiple options, guided me through her process, explained why she was choosing the route she was, walked me through possible outcomes, and kept me updated every step of the way. I'm happy to say she made the expungement stick this time. I'm no longer burdened by the dumb mistake I made and do not have to worry that my record might still be out there in the ether somewhere. I would highly recommend Naomi to friends, family and colleagues who need an attorney. Thank you, Naomi!

Wonderful Attorney
I give Attorney Naomi Chung my highest recommendation without any reservations. I retained Attorney Chung to represent me in a very complicated case and she was very professional, hardworking, dedicated and extremely smart. If you need a great attorney, there is no need to look any further.

Extremely Satisfied
Naomi is dedicated, proactive and very passionate about giving her clients the best representation possible. I found her very knowledgeable and responsive to questions. She understands that being charged with a crime is a frightening situation that most of us don't deal with frequently. I always felt like she was available when a question or concern arose and she made sure I understood my exposure and options. She's a defender of rights, she's the real deal. If you hire Naomi you can rest assured that you are in great hands.

Ms. Chung was there for me in my most desperate times. Not only was she highly knowledgeable and professional, she handled my case as though she was the one going through the ordeal. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
