    After reaching out to several other attorneys who took weeks to get back to me it was a pleasant surprise at how accessible Mr. Chang was. He was very patient, understanding, and explained everything I inquired about in an efficient yet simple manner. If you are ever in need of a attorney make sure Mr. Chang is your first call!

    Great attorney. Low-key, patient and knowledgeable. Extremely accessible - but also efficient. He made short work of my case and got a favorable settlement without a lot of to-do. Mr. Chang saved me a lot of grief a less-experienced attorney might not have. He assessed my case was unlikely to prevail at trial, based on the fact pattern and his knowledge of laws and these cases. I was kept up-to-date on my case status, and didn't feel 'lucky' to have his representation. Calvin seems to me to be Old School, in the best ways: he takes pride in his work and shapes successful and fair outcomes vs. 'pie in the sky' swinging for the fence legal strategy (a maid suing for $1M in damages and getting laughed at).

    When you're aggrieved in a legal situation, you want to feel like you have representation opposing counsel will respect and take seriously, that he or she will actually merit that estimation, and that your counsel will be accessible and friendly toward you. If any of these qualities isn't there, it can be a problem. Calvin Chang represented me in a successful settlement outcome with a former employer, and demonstrated these qualities. I was a complex litigation paralegal for some years, and later worked for an employment law firm; I can say, having worked on the inside, that he is an uncommon attorney. I was never shoved to a secretary. I never had to make repeat calls. I was never left hanging, or with the feeling that my concerns didn't matter. I am very pleased to have retained Calvin Chang in this matter and would recommend him to anybody with a legal need in his area of expertise.
