There was one time I needed some legal advice and decided to consult a lawyer. Amos Cai was one of the first to get back to me and we arranged an appointment. Amos provided sharp, valuable and relatable advice on the issue I was facing, and enlightened me on certain queries I had – it was sort of a Law 101 for me. He also offered to answer any follow up questions I may have on the same issue after the session, seeing how the new understanding I have gained will take some time to sink in. I walked away from the session not only with the answers I needed, but also new knowledge I did not expect to gain. I highly recommend Yuen Law for their professionalism and speed of execution.
