Testimonials from Clients and Other Professionals

Mr. Wong is a breath of fresh air. I’ve worked with several attorneys on other types of matters, and Mr. Wong is the first attorney to get it. He offered a simple flat fee, with a breakdown of my options, and advised me on what was necessary, what was advised, and what was completely optional. With the flat fee I felt like I could ask the questions that were necessary without feeling rushed. While I thought I did my fair of research about estate planning, Mr. Wong identified significant issues that I was unaware of. I highly recommend Mr. Wong.
Justin W., Estate Planning Client
Mr. Wong is an outstanding attorney with an in-depth and focused understanding of estate planning. I would, and do, wholeheartedly recommend John to any client seeking legal counsel with respect to their estate.
Jeff Pham, Business Attorney
I had a great experience using John as my estate planning attorney. He was knowledgeable about several issues, including income tax issues that my CPA had not addressed. He worked with my CPA and Financial Advisor to ensure that everyone was on the same page with my financial picture. Most importantly, we set up an estate plan to protect my business and my children from creditors.
Ursula Reyes, Estate Planning Client
