Review Michael Chin

  • I Highly Recommend Michael Chin

    Posted by Rikki

    It is my pleasure to write this letter of reference for my attorney, Mr. Michael Chin. Mr. Chin represented me in my modification of an existing parenting plan, which is a complex and difficult thing to navigate and get changed.
    I began the search on google, looking for a local attorney to assist me in modifying my parenting plan.
    As I spoke to several attorney’s they told me their retainer fee and concluded the conversation by stating once I have that in full we can discuss the details of your case.
    I then reached Michael Chin. He took his time with me on the phone, never once made me feel rushed. He asked me a few questions to better determine if he could assist me. I know he heard desperation in my voice. I inquired about the retainer, as I thought it was strange he hadn’t mentioned it. As we discussed it he told me he understood my situation and would be willing to work with me to make payment arrangements based on my pay schedule.
    I met with him soon after. My mind was made up from the rapport over the phone that he was the man for the job.
    He worked with me in pain-steaking-detail and built what was not “my” case, but in no uncertain terms, “our case”. He was on my team. He had my back! I felt such relief, after all, these were my kids we were fighting for.
    I knew this was going to be the hardest fright of my life, and he walked me through every step. I think sometimes he was just as much a therapist as a lawyer, showing compassion and attention to every need I had in the process.
    After being served, my ex-husband approached me to settle out of court. Michael had done his job so well that the other party didn’t want to take a chance in court. Michael spent more time, emails, and made more calls to mediate and work with the other party to get the matter resolved. I took Mr. Chin’s advice and he assured me that settling was a win win. Had my case gone to trial, he stood to make a lot more money from me. His singular focus was what was in my best interest and that never wavered. Even to his detriment, he fought for my kids and I with determination and ethics.
    The entire process was six months. I often spoke to Mr. Chin multiple times a day, and often late into the evening. Despite the time, he always assisted me and treated me with respect.
    From the first phone call Michael was professional, patient & helpful. His execution of time sensitive documents was proficient & timely. Mr. Chin kept open and ongoing communication throughout the process. If I could, I would refer everyone I know to Michael Chin as I know the greatest compliment is a referral. I can’t express how grateful I am to have had him in my corner and the resolution we reached was a result of his hard work and dedication for his client.

    Mike Chin was my representation while I went through a custody battle.

    I had a tough case and he saw it through. See, I am a father Washington State. We had significant amount of evidence showing It was clearly in my son's best interest for him to be residing with me. Even with the GAL 100 percent against me, Mike saw all that I had to walk through and stuck by me and my family until the end.
    My wife and i will recommend Mike Chin and the Chin family to anybody and everybody we meet. They will continue to be our family attorneys if ever needed in the future.

    Thank you for helping me give my son the best chance in life. I have no doubt that he will have a great life now. I will always be thankful!

    I was the victim of an IRS phishing scam a couple of months ago. Michael helped me out and went to bat for me against the scam artists and saved me from losing money. He advised me and helped me free of charge because I am a client of his for other matters. Michael is caring and will get back to you promptly. He is busy with many cases so sometimes it takes him a little longer to respond, but he will and will get the job done.

    I needed an attorney who could help me with my IRS problem and that's when I heard about Michael. He has a masters degree in tax law and was able to find the best way to payback the IRS that was suitable for me. The IRS could have done a lot worse, but Michael took great care in helping me pay what I owed without filing for bankruptcy or having the IRS garnish my wages. Thank you so much for the help!!! I truly recommend him if you have any tax legal issues.

    Michael helped me with a tricky divorce. He helped me get the appropriate alimony and child support needed to maintain a sustainable lifestyle after my husband abandoned our family. He was very respectful and caring through this difficult process. Michael was also available via telephone, text, and email as well. I value his help and I highly recommend him to ladies going through this difficult situation.

    Michael Chin represented me for my custody battle against my ex for custody of my son. My family has been using Michaels office for generations. His father represented my mother is her custody battle and now he has once again showed remarkable work in helping me win custody of my son. He went above and beyond with my case. Washington is famous for being in favor of the mother. As a single father, i started off with next to no custody. Mike fought extremely hard to make sure i got as much time as possible with my son. He handled everything quickly and professionaly. I felt like he looked at me more as a grieving father then as a potential check. He understood where i was coming from and helped me every step of the way. He dealt with my numerous court dates for fake claims from my ex and made sure i didn't have to miss work. Thanks to Mike, i now have full custody of my son and was able to relocate. He never gave up on me no matter how hard it got. He always found a way to get us where we needed to be. I would recommend this man to anyone. He treats you with respect and dignity. Those are hard traits to find in lawyers and I'm so glad i found Michael Chin. I will continue to use him whenever i need and i know he will always have my back. A very stand up and honest guy. He will not sugar coat it. He will let you know what you're up against and what the odds are no matter how good or bad. The difference is he will fight to get you the best. Number one layer in my book :)

  • DO NOT TRUST/POOR RESPONSE TIME/DOES NOT FOLLOW THROUGH WITH NO INTEGRITY

    Extremely poor in representation my divorce. This attorney will returned your calls in the beginning. Will not study the case prior to court date and does not a backbone to fight in court or the experience.
    Lack of commitment and poor judgment. Does not follow through with his verbal agreements.

    Mike was a referral from a friend of mine and I'm happy to say I'm a client for life. Mike assisted me with three different occasions and three different citations. He was upfront and straight forward with his advice and what I can expect as results as well. He didn't "fluff" any statements and that's what made me choose Mike to represent me in my traffic citations.
    First case was due to a modified exhaust - second was no front plate and proof of insurance - both citations led to a violation of my probation of DUI.
    Mike kept in close contact with me and explained situations. He made sure he followed up and kept me in the loop in all cases and possible scenarios. He also did all the leg work and made sure I didn't have to miss any time off of work to deal with any and all court cases.
    He's a straight shooter, honest, and professional - yet he built good rapport and made me feel comfortable - as if he were a friend helping me not a lawyer out to get my money.
