The following are reviews and comments from people all around the world who have used our legal services.


  1. I really appreciate all of the help that I have received from this organization. Not only were they kind and helpful in answering all of my questions, their responses were prompt and concise. I 100% feel comfortable recommending them.

  2. Very prompt and accurate service. I was impressed with the level of professionalism and speed of response, it speaks volumes of the firm. Clearly, there is an interest not only in professionalism and competence, but also consideration of the client’s best interest. Highly recommend.

    Outstanding!!! Atty. Chung and Partners. On behalf of the expat workers that I have been trying to help in seeking legal advice particularly in the matters of unclaimed severance pay or who should pay for their severance pay, I had sought for numerous legal advice from government and private legal offices, but just triggered my brain to ask more questions , and not until I sought for a legal advice from your office that I feel extremely satisfied and grateful or your very enlightening legal advice whcih absolutely cleared the cobwebs in my head. Your excellent command of the English language also helped a lot to bridge the laguage barrier between your expat clients in conveying all the legal facts and consequences.
    I highly recommend your lawfirm to all the expats who are having trouble knowing and understadinng Korean labor law . More power to you and your staff, Atty Chung!!!

    Best of Luck!


  4. Thanks a lot, sir. Your advice was a very big help to my situation. It was really reliable. I don’t know what I could have done without your help. I’m grateful 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍💯💯

  5. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the enthusiastic support of Chung & Partners, especially Lawyer Mr. Chung. Lawyer Chung has worked with utmost responsibility and dedication to the client. I really appreciate it. Great service!

    I appreciate the prompt and informative reply that I received. Thank you for your advice it is very helpful in this stressful situation.
    Very much appreciated.

  8. My family and I have been trying to find out our son’s immigration status since 2014, when he was informed to leave. This firm’s prompt reply has been the most informative and newsy information that we have, thus, received during all this time – having asking a “patent lawyer” that we regrettably hired in Daegu, having gone to both immigration offices in Seoul and from various online searches and visits to Korean consulates in the United States.

    Although, it may continue to be a hard row to hoe ahead, at least, we have some courses of action, provided by this firm, to pursue that may lead to our son being able to return to Korea. After all, our son was born in Korea, his mother is a Korean citizen and I, his father, was born in Korea and served in the United States Army for over eleven years in Korea.

    I pray that this will lead to a positive resolution resulting in our son being able to enter Korea to help manage our family business.

    Thank you very much, Chung & Partners.

  9. I was impressed by the immediate response. Though my case is complicated and is far from being resolved, I am very glad to get the help of professionals. Hope that my case will be resolved, and I will add more comments on the issue. Thank you.

  10. I used Chung & Partners to handle my case. The service was impeccable and very professional. He answered my questions before I even hired him and did so in much detail. I am very satisfied with the service and would 100% recommend his services to anyone who needs a lawyer. May your firm be blessed! Thank you and 감사합니다.

  11. I was very lucky to find Chung & Partners when searching for the lawyer in Korea (husband’s death and my pension issues). Regardless of the fact that we never met, everything was done to the best standards. Thank you very much for your professionalism, attention to details and ability to explain complicated Korean laws in simple English.
    Would highly recommend!

  12. Many thanks to Chung & Partners for a prompt response to my inquiry regarding Korean marriage law. The answer was clear and most helpful.
    I will certainly contact this firm in future if I am in need of any legal assistance.

  13. I would like to say thank you, for being patient when we were not, for helping us through this hard process. You were so professional, prompt to answer all of our questions. This was a great service, would continue to recommend you in the service. We are jumping for joy 😊 . Thank you. As aforeigners in Korea it was hard finding someone who understood and was willing to help, you made the difference.

  14. Thank you so much for the help and for the straight forward answer. You gave me hope for my future plan with regards on my career.
    God bless you all!

  15. I was sceptical at first. Especially when I had to sent personal information and wire transfer the fee to another country. I wasted a lot of money in California to get a divorce and whished to have the research done earlier to pick this law firm. My previous California lawyer did not get me anywhere and after 9-month my divorce was still stuck in the California court system. Your law firm promissed me a timeline, kept the timeline, and I am divorced in the timeline you promissed. Thanks!
    Note: Highly encourage to use this law firm if you want results—not fake promisses!

    1. Thank you so much Chung & Partners for giving straight forward answers!! I am so blessed to get to know your website. God bless you all!!

  16. Lawyers at Chung & Partners were professional and supportive through a very trying time. I was able to get a satisfactory resolution to a tedious and, especially due to the pandemic, uncertain and further complex labor law/compensation related situation. I would whole heartedly recommend Chung & Partners. I’m very grateful to have worked with them.

    1. I am very grateful to Chung & Partners for their straightforward reply (to which I’m looking for) on my query on the correct basis of the calculation of severance fee as per Korea Labor Law. Thank you very much, Sir!

  17. I am very grateful to the lawyer at Chung & Partners for guiding me into the right direction. I had spent hours searching about inheritance law (specifically a Korean-Canadian child inheriting a Korean-Canadian mother’s assets held in Korea) and felt very helpless. He responded promptly with clear guidance. Thank you so very much!

  18. I am so happy that I was able to ask some questions and get a general answer without having to pay for a consultation……lawyers and legal offices that give out some advice before so that you can decide to proceed with their help or not are wonderful

  19. This law firm is such an asset to expatriates living in Korea. On several occasions, this firm has promptly responded and alleviated quite a few stressful situations. I have nothing but admiration for their professionalism. I am eternally grateful for their guidance and understanding of my legal issues.

  20. This service is wonderful, I feel lucky to have found it. My wife had suddenly fallen into a trap related to her inheritance, and was receiving conflicting advice from people and even a “best option” suggestion from her brother’s judicial scrivener that seemed outright counter-productive. I am very grateful to Attorney Chung for his patience in clarifying my wife’s real options here, and putting us on the right track to resolving this problem efficiently. While also providing us other valuable knowledge about our situation that I wasn’t even looking for. A really fine service indeed!

  21. As a foreign national, I contacted Chung & Partners through this website for help with a divorce. I got married in Korea to a Korean national and the system was very difficult, but he was extremely helpful in making the process easy. I recommend his services to any foreigner who needs help – he is always prepared to give helpful advice and will make sure that the problem is solved.

    Thank you again to the team at Chung & Partners for being a bright light during a difficult time. I will always return here if I need any more help.

He was able to simplify some complex scenarios for me and help me navigate some of the confusion that exists in Korean law for foreigners. It’s comforting to have someone that can help in this situation. I also appreciated his knowledge of the practical application of the law and the directness of the advice.

  24. I was able to save a lot of time and effort in regards to the F4 visa and the second generation Korean status. Communication was responsive and the advice actionable. Thank you!

  26. I really appreciate their quick and thorough response. Their professional advice helped us not only to make decisions but also to avoid spending extra time and budget on court procedures. Dealt with visa and family issues and now can definitely recommend their assistance.

  29. I first discovered this law firm via his informative blog on askkorealaw.com – upon my first enquiry the lawyer was instantly helpful and was able to grasp the situation I was facing well. Since then he has been a trusted source of information and someone I would return to again for guidance and counsel.

  30. I spoke with Neil today about some issues I was having with my job. He was sympathetic and very knowledgeable. I feel so much better about the situation my school has put me in. He was able to describe Korean law to me so I know that what I have done is not illegal and that I do not have to worry about anything. He really took the time to ask follow up questions and give me the most accurate answers possible. I am so grateful that I found this company as a resource. I highly recommend working with them. If anything escalates at my job and I need to hire someone I will be coming back here!

  31. Thank you so much for taking the time to look everything over and offer your insight. It has been extremely helpful. You have my respect and appreciation. You have played an invaluable part in my understanding of my case and definitely factor into the steps I need to take going forward.

  32. Thank you very much for your fast and detailled reply. My question would never have been answered without your kind free help. I wish you the best, always!

  35. I just want to say thank you for your help and advice. It’s really difficult to find knowledgeable and English speaking help in Korea.

  39. Thank you so much for your fast response. I wasn’t able to find the information you provided me anywhere else but you were able to explain it to me so easily through one email.
    I admire what you do for people like me! It’s not easy being Korean especially when you barely have any resources regarding Korean law written in english.
    Once again, thank you so much for your help. I will contact you again if I need further assistance.

  40. Appreciate prompt answers to my email and follow-up questions about Korean divorce law and foreign divorce decrees.

  41. Chung & Partners:

  50. I’m actually Korean American with dual citizenship, My Korean is good but not good enough to make any sense of Korean labor laws in all it’s intricacies. He replied to all my long winded questions in exact details and quite quickly.

    Thank you so much for your gracious and clear, no nonsense advice.

    If it comes down to me having to retain services of a capable law firm, yours will be first on my list.

  51. As a foreigner living in Korea, I never thought I would have legal problems. When I unfortunately became involved in a case against me, the feeling of stress was overwhelming. Not only did I have a legal issue to deal with, but it was all happening in Korea. The language barrier, cultural differences and unfamiliar legal system seemed impossible to deal with. However, a friend recommended Chung & Partners to me, to seek advice in my time of trouble. They provided fast responses, realistic knowledge about my situation, and smart advice. Their responses were well-written in English, and the meaning was clear. Chung and Partners helped me to overcome the fear and doubt I had about my case, and to approach the situation realistically and calmly, with the knowledge that they gave me. I would strongly recommend their services to anyone who needs help in a legal situation in Korea. They have proved to be trustworthy and dedicated, as well as professional and knowledgeable. Dealing with legal issues can be difficult. If you find yourself in a tough situation and you need advice or legal help, save yourself some stress and contact Chung and Partners.

  52. Thank you for your reply. If things turn for the worse, I plan to seek further assistance with him and his firm’s services! Thanks again!

  53. Thank you very much Chung & Partners. The free information your provided me is extremely helpful and I will follow up on how my severance situation unfolds. Thank you again!

They ae the absolute best option for representation in a divorce case in Korea, with extensive knowledge in both Korean court procedures and the divorce requirements of other countries as well. Fantastic service from start to finish, and the cost was much less than expected. Everything is handled so professionally by their office, and it takes so much stress off the client in difficult circumstances. Highly recommended to any foreigners who require legal representation in Korea.

  61. I came across your website when inquiring about Korean Labor Laws and maternity leave. There is a lot of relevant, helpful information on your website

  62. Many thanks to Chung & Partners for having very competently and kindly helped me resolve a divorce and custody case. As a long-time resident of Korea who had moved back to Canada, it was stressful having to find a Korean lawyer able to provide effective counsel and English-based communication. Chung & Partners did so in a way I had not expected, providing excellent value and highly personalized service.

    With appreciation

    Thank you so much!

  65. Inquired about an issue regarding severance pay here in Korea and was quickly answered. Thank you for your free advice. It was much appreciated.

  66. Chung & Partners was very helpful and informative regarding an employment contract issue. As an American living in Korea, it is good to know there is prompt, professional legal expertise available to assist in these matters. Much thanks.

  67. As a ‘foreigner’ living in Korea one experiences many unique challenges, but nothing prepared me for being involved in a civil lawsuit.
    Receiving official letters, phone calls etc. in a language I do not fluently speak or read was overwhelming and terrifying.
    After asking advice from Chung & Partners (and a quick background check by a Korean friend) I hired him to represent me in my case.
    His professionalism, sensitivity, promptness, excellent English abilities and willingness to help me gave me a sense of calm in possibly the most stressful time of my life.
    He guided me in what to do and what to expect with the case via detailed, step-by-step communications.
    The case ended in a positive manner and I am deeply grateful for his help and services.

  68. Chung & Partners has answered my questions regarding Korean law clearly and promptly. I appreciate this.

  77. Chung & Partners was a tremendous help for me. As an english speaking American, it was very difficult for me to research Korean law because most everything I found was in korean, not english. Not only was Chung & Partners prompt with the response (which was much appreciated with my time-sensitive issue), but he was also so curteous and very knowledgeable.

    Thank you for your help Chung & Partners!

  78. Chung & Partners was extremely helpful. Their quick response was greatly appreciated, especially since I was dealing with a time-sensitive issue.

    Thank you so much Chung & Partners, you provide an amazing service, which I highly recommend.

  81. I’d like to thank Chung & Partners for the superb help regarding my complex child safety and custody situation.
    The information provided was friendly yet concise and accurate. It has given me a sense of drive and purpose through realizing that I can achieve a better life for my child.
    For any foreigners needing legal advice or help in Korea, I fully recommend Chung & Partners, by far the best law firm I’ve come across here, excellent English to boot!

  82. I can honestly say that the excellent comments left for Chung & Partners are well-deserved. I didn’t expect a response to my long and detailed questions but the lawyer sent me a prompt and well-written response to my questions which I found to be very clear and on-point. As a foreign licensed attorney who is not familiar with Korean law, it was refreshing to interact with someone as professional and well-versed in the law as Chung & Partners. I would not hesitate to refer potential clients to him or utilize his professional services in the event that it is required. Thanks very much.
