Art and Finance issue
Jesse helped me with an issue for which it was difficult to find an attorney with the knowledge and expertise in both securities law and fine art. Although the combination of these two fields within in the same problem was new territory for Jess, he did his due diligence in research and provided me with case law to support his recommendation. I could not have made an informed decision without his good work. Jesse was patient and thorough. I recommend him highly.

Fantastic And Knowledgable!
Jesse did some pro-bono work for my small business related to our licensing agreements with our writers. He was quick to respond, kept me in the loop and explained what everything meant to both my company and my writers. I was quite impressed with Jesse's work and would be more than happy to work with him again in the future.

Estate Work
Mr. Woo handled my 97 year old aunt's special needs trust for her daughter very competently. He was patient and attentive to her needs and explained everything that was needed to the appointed trustee so that Auntie was confident that the trust would be in place and not have to worry. Mr. Woo is a relaxed attorney who can ease a client's stress level while giving you the confidence that he will follow through on what he promises to do.

The Excellence I Needed!
I came to Jesse looking for general legal counseling regarding matters with a will and trust, as well as a settlement agreement. Regarding the same issue, more recently Jesse helped me through all the steps and resources I needed to draft a demand letter, where then Jesse took it, smoothed it out and got it professionally ready to send out according exactly to my intent. Jesse has also provided prompt and accurate information regarding copyright issues with a large personal project I have worked on. What is great about Jesse is that he provides all the information and legal perspective I have needed with clear and straightforward language. Down to earth and one-to-one communication is important when issues can be very complex and personal, and it was good to have such prompt and honest dialogue regarding the legal aspects of my issues. Jesse never left me feeling confused or out of options. Full recommendation.

Advice on tenant's rights case
Mr. Woo reviewed a representation agreement of another law firm and gave me sound advice on fees related to contingency percentages and how they're set up in the state of CA. He was prompt in his response and upon review of his advice accurate as well.
