Mr Kim was an excellent lawyer. He assisted me through the whole process and was very detailed in what the next steps were. He also laid out my options and how I wanted to move forward giving me his most professional advice. I recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
I was going to start this review off with a bit of a background story, but if you’re looking for the punch line it’s that Kim is an amazing lawyer and an honest man. As a recent college graduate with fairly limited economic means I was lucky to have him as representation
He is the best the lawyer because he helped me in my case and he made my case dismissed even Though I didn’t expect that. Thank you Mr Daniel K .kim
