Cynthia McAlister, Chief of Police
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
