Excellent Lawyer
I had recently been arrested for my first DUI. Being that I have never been in that situation before, I was in a panic and was distressed about what was to come next. I had called numerous lawyers and most came across as rude and did not want to explain anything unless I came in a paid for a consultation, which Is understandable considering it is a business and everyone's time is important. I came across Emily through word of mouth and after reading her reviews I gave her a call. She picked up on the first call . Emily was the only one who put aside time to listen to my situation and gave me a detailed explanation of what I had to do. By the tone of her voice alone I knew she that she was sincere and truly wants to help. She advised me through each step of the process and kept me up to date on everything that was happening. Promptly responded to all my emails. If she did not pick up the phone call, she would call back in a reasonable amount of time. She is sincere, professional, and absolutely knowledgeable. Hiring Emily was the best decision I made.

Best Lawyer
The other lawyers I talked to before Emily, seemed arrogant and rude. After talking to Emily, she was very polite, explained my options and was very confident she could reduce my DUI to a wet reckless and she did. We went to court and she explained all the legal jargon and was right there by my side if I had any questions. If you're in a situation and you need lawyer, then I highly recommend Emily; she's polite, professional and she was able to reduce my charges.

Best Lawyer I have met
James Y. 9/1/2012 Emily Phan is the best lawyer that I have met. I had two occasions to use Emily's legal services in court and she helped me successfully in both cases. Before I knew Emily, I had met several other lawyers and thought "fancy looking" expensive law offices and "smooth talking" lawyers may have a better chance in winning in court. However, I found out after using Emily in both cases, that Emily's successes are due to her confidence, diligence, and personal compassionate attitude to her clients. Her intelligence, demeanor, and eloquent concise summaries of my two cases to the judges endeared her to the court, resulting in favorable rulings for both. If you are honest with her, she will give you your best chances and advice, compared with many fast talking lawyers who will promise you anything to get your business.

Posted by Tony -Chairman American Technology Group | August 29, 2011
A family member recently had a problem that required professional legal attention. After much research the most recommended attorney was Emily Wang Phan Emily turned out to be a wise choice and a real treasure. After discussions with a number of those recommended, I was impressed with Emily's knowledge, experience and professionalism. One of the major reasons that Emily stands out is that she really cares about your problem. After her initial analysis she makes excellent recommendations on how to proceed. Emily will also inform you as to what you must do to assist in your defense. She will take th time necessary to explain all legal details to you and answer any questions you may have in detail She was professional in her analysis and right on on all her recommendations. Emily always responded quickly to inquiries and returned calls promptly. Her experience and contacts were superb. Of course, this led to a favorable outcome that we were extremely pleased with. I would highly recommend Emily and will use and recommend her services anytime I can. Tony DePhillips Chairman American Technology Group .

Excellent Def. Attrny
She is the real deal. Admittedly, my case was relatively simple, but she was able to negotiate the various pitfalls and advise me on the steps to take, was able to get the case dismissed. I was very happy with the results, and conduct.

Excellent lawyer
Emily Wang helped me on my Hit & Run case. She was patient to explain things to me, a non-native English speaker. She knows exactly the key steps to make the best result of my case. The way she works is like my friend. She even worked during weekend, if necessary. I was impressed by her sincere smile when my case was dismissed.

** Look no further! Here's the BEST choice!
Ms. Wang assisted me with my DUI as well as my record expungement. She knows every defense when it comes to DUIs. She will also walk you through each step of the way and explain thing patiently and thoroughly. Very intelligent and easy to talk to. She is also very well spoken in court and appears to be very well liked by deputy district attorneys and judges. And most importantly, she is the only attorney I know that will actually return phone calls and speak to you personally.

Can't Believe she calls herself a Lawyer
Didn't inform me of my options. She told me i had to accept prop 36 because the court wouldn't re-refer me to DEJ. Come to find out later that I had an option to have a hearing that would be held in a different department with a totally different judge. I wouldn't doubt it if she helped the judge think of all the conditions penalties fines etc in the "Book he threw at me". total waste of $750 for 20 mins of misconduct that was should of been representation. I feel for anyone even my worst enemy that hires her
