I have used the services of Wan Law Group in connection with several entertainment law issues that have confronted me over the years. Tim Wan was able to explain everything to me, and I was blown away by his knowledge during the negotiations. Mr. Wan always knew what contract terms were negotiable and which were standard; and with the terms that were negotiable, he knew how high to raise the demands in order to obtain maximum compensation. I put my faith and trust in the Wan Law Group, PLLC, and without reservation wholeheartedly recommend the Wan Law Group to anyone seeking legal services for such matters.

As a personal injury attorney, I only deal in my area of practice. As a result, I have referred Tim Wan to my clients who have needed guidance and contracts in corporate matters. I know many attorneys but I choose to refer the people I care about to Tim due to both his knowledge and compassion.
