My experience with Shin was great. I originally hired him with a different firm and that is how I got introduced. It was when I had a follow up issue come up a year later that needed attention that I realized that he had moved on from his original firm, but I called him anyway because I was comfortable with him by then. Shin graciously stepped in and sorted out my followup issue pro bono when he could have easily just sent me back to his old firm. That is class! Shin is an excellent up and coming Attorney and I have no doubt that he will do an excellent job helping others with their legal needs. Shin is also always available when you need him, often communicating with me at odd hours and on any day of the week. Very personal service which was a big plus for me.read more

Shin Cho represented me in a traffic matter when I received a ticket in a small out state municipality. He was great. I had contacted several traffic lawyers. None would even talk to me until I gave them some up front money. One wanted $500.00 to say hello.Shin called me back promptly. Explained the process and kept me informed throughout. His fee was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to use him in the future.read more

I would highly recommend Shin Cho to anyone in need of a lawyer. He helped us with a DWI that our son had and we are very pleased with the results. Shin got these results because he is very thorough. Rather than take the easy path and accept an initial offer, he took the time to understand the case completely and determine the best way for us to proceed. He always responded to our questions, didn't nickel and dime on fees, and helped us to stay calm when we were nervous.read more
