Trust the Lawyers other Lawyers Trust

We know that you have a choice of lawyers.  But have you ever thought about who lawyers go to when they or their family members get injured?

This lawyer and his wife were injured in a horrific car crash:

“I know a lot of lawyers, but when it came to my family, there is only one lawyer I trusted to help us, Roy Chang.”

Terrance W.H. Tom, lawyer and former state legislator (click on his video below).

This lawyer’s daughter was injured in a rear-end collision:

“Having worked with many personal injury lawyers, I was confident that Shim & Chang were the right lawyers for her case.”

Stanley M. Chow, Esq.

This lawyer’s mother-in-law was struck by a car while a pedestrian:

“When it came to choosing the best lawyers to represent her, we chose Shim & Chang.”

James H.Q. Lee, Esq.

This lawyer was bitten by a dog and his own dog was killed:

“When my dog was killed and my hands were injured in an unprovoked attack, I put my trust in Shim & Chang, and they delivered.  I would highly recommend them if you or your dog are ever injured arising out of someone else’s negligence.”

Everette S. Kaneshige, Esq.

Not only do lawyers send their families and friends to Shim & Chang, they also refer clients for injury cases they do not specialize in.  Even lawyers who have been on the other side of our cases have referred injured people to us.  And why is that?

I had a very difficult case to prove. I knew it because I didn’t know what caused me to slip and fall while shopping in a supermarket.

The attorneys at Shim & Chang discovered that the owners of the supermarket had installed the wrong type of flooring which contributed to my fall. I was very impressed by their knowledge and experience in slip and fall cases.

Their staff was also very warm, caring, and helpful. I would highly recommend them.

G.H.- Slip and Fall


As an attorney, I know how important it is to select the right attorney for your case. You want an attorney that knows the applicable law, specializes in your type of case, is able to best present your case in trial, and is always responsive to the client’s questions, needs and concerns. I chose the attorneys at Shim & Chang for all of these reasons.

When my dog was killed and my hands were injured in an unprovoked dog attack, I put my trust in Shim & Change, and they delivered.

I would highly recommend them if you or your dog are ever injured arising out of some else’s negligence.
