I had a serious business conflict with someone that potentially was going to cost me lot of money. I was fortunate that a friend referred me to Tang Law. Kelvin was brilliant in the way he handled my case, both in the court and with the negotiations with the other party. We had a very successful outcome and if I am in need of legal representation again (hopefully won't..) I will not hesitate in engaging Kelvin.
