client testimonials

Attorney Kim is awesome. I was in a terrible accident and knew that I needed an attorney to help fight a reckless driving ticket. I didn't know any lawyers so I searched on Google and found this gem. In hindsight, I genuinely think calling Atty Kim was the best decision I made in 2018.
What struck me about him was his professionalism and passion. He obviously enjoys and is phenomenal at what he does. I would highly recommend his services if you are in need of a great lawyer.


Reckless Driving Defense, Google Review

Daniel Kim was great. I am a college student and was about to receive my second reckless driving ticket. He was dedicated to my cause and knew it would look bad on my behalf with future employers. He worked hard to help me out. My case was reduced to speeding and I am grateful for Mr. Kim. I would definitely recommend.

Reckless Driving Defense, AVVO Review

I’d just like to say how grateful I am for Daniel Kim’s representation of me today. Being that this was my first time in that arena I cannot say how out of place and uncomfortable I was. I truly could not have made it without him. His professional demeanor and skill in the court room was superb. He reassured me that he would take care of everything. He told me that he would fight for me and he did. His mastery during the proceedings were critical to him winning the case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

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.


Reckless Driving Defense, Google Review

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
