I heartily recommend attorney Hwang if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having legal issues as a foreigner in Korea and are searching for an English-speaking attorney. She was able to come up with a settlement agreement in just one day and was always very professional. I don't believe I could have done this with a different attorney. She gave considerable thought to every option and always gave me the rundown on the specifics. Her flawless English combined with her effective communication style makes it easy to understand the intricacies. Her passion to the case, professionalism, and determination have really impressed me.

I totally recommend Ms. Hwang for an international divorce case ! I asked for help from Ms. Hwang regarding my divorce with a toxic Korean husband(narcissistic). I'm from Europe, I had two kids with this man and when I realized what kind of guy he was and that he wouldn't change, I decided to contact Ms. Hwang, and went back to my country. My kids suffered from physical abuse and all 3 of us suffered from mental abuse. Ms. Hwang was able to represent me throughout the divorce process. It wasn't easy for me to think about all these bad memories, but thanks to her great work, she could let my voice be heard in court and she understood very well how I was feeling. I would really like to point out the fact that not just as a lawyer, but as a human being too, Ms. Hwang is really the best. Going through all the evidence I could provide, she was also able to point out things like the fact that I provided a lot financially to the family while my ex always made me trust that I didn't bring enough. It really helped me mentally realize that I was in the right to ask for more and also helped me in the process of rebuilding myself. We won the case and it's all thanks to Ms. Hwang !

I appreciate Ms. Hwang Yunjeong for taking up my divorce case. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and always reliable. Above all else, she's compassionate and brings a kind approach to help others. During all the points of struggle, she made the path clear and manageable, and she was exceptionally patient with me. She guided me and ensured me that I could get the result I wanted. This was my first time to ever go through such an ordeal and I was able to face it well. I truly recommend her, she is a great attorney and will take great care of her clients.

I am a US citizen from California and I’ve been teaching English in Korea for nearly ten years. I recently had a serious falling out with a best friend of mine and they attempted to sue me for defamation. I reached out to a few lawyers and Ms. Hwang was the first to contact me. All throughout our interactions, she has been timely and patient with my questions. I had very little knowledge of the legal system here in Korea, and I found Ms. Hwang’s expertise to be absolutely helpful. She was very detailed in explaining relevant articles of Korean law to me and she did so in a way that was concise and very easy to understand for someone such as myself with no background in law. Her English was excellent and there was no language barrier between us! Moreover, she was very patient and she listened thoroughly to my situation, asking pertinent questions to ensure that she would be helping my case to the best of her ability. Ms. Hwang was professional, amicable, and patient throughout our time together. Also, her office is very easy to find and conveniently located near a subway exit! Thanks to Ms. Hwang’s legal assistance, I was able to settle the case! I highly recommend any native English speaker seeking legal assistance in Korea to actively seek out Ms. Hwang! Thank you for your exceptional services, Lawyer Hwang!

I would like to thank Ms Hwang as being a really competent lawyer who is not only extremely available but of great support when it comes to explain you the case, its consequence and the process to follow. Always calm, supportive, re-assuring while exposing you the reality and of good advise. I was more than happy and extremely satisfied to have her on  my side.

I started using Lawyer Hwang's expertise on a workplace harassment/mental health case that I wasn't sure I'd win. Initially when I started coordinating with her, I was recovering from a psych hospital stay and my visa was up in the air. I was discombobulated and overwhelmed. Lawyer Hwang compassionately and reassuringly helped me take back control of my situation. She took all of my evidence, helped me brainstorm more possible evidence, arranged and submitted everything countless times to the appropriate office: civil court or the labor office. She explored different avenues to find what worked and would assist me with my visa. At times she met with me to go over evidence or meet labor officers or my opponents. She was professional, punctual, patient, and easy to work with throughout the long process. She answered any and all of my questions, and gave valuable insight to what the opponents might claim or try to claim. She made sure to translate every brief she submitted to the court for my benefit. She kept me updated at every step of the process. Her hard work and perseverance led to a positive resolution of my case. I can't thank her enough and it seems insufficient to say I'd recommend her to anyone in a similar situation as mine.

Working with Lawyer Hwang as a foreign national was a relieving experience. I have had legal assistance on two separate labor dispute cases and I could not have done in without her help. She gave insight and information that I did not know about. I appreciate her professionalism, dedication , time as well as honesty as far as everything is concerned. She does everything by the book and has her client’s best interest in every case. Lawyer Hwang is definitely a great option for a non Korean speaking client like myself, I definitely recommend her services in times of legal difficulties. Thank you for all your help, you saved my life twice!

I really had a great experience using Lawyer Hwang's services to handle a very sensitive case. She is extremely proactive, passionate and understanding and was able to solve my situation quickly and effectively. She understood my privacy concerns and went out of her way to protect my private information, as well as communicating with the other party on my behalf. I have nothing but good things to say about her, and her services! Going to the office was also always convenient, and I received excellent service there as well as through e-mails. I highly highly recommend her if you need a English speaking lawyer who is very understanding, and deft in law, and wants the best for you in a complicated legal situation!

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Hwang for a small claims case against my landlord who kept part of my deposit. I can't recommend her highly enough. She was not only knowledgeable and professional, but she was also kind, empathetic, and incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. Despite my case being a small claim, she treated it with the same level of dedication and care that she would with any other case.

I appreciated how she took the time to explain everything in a way that I could easily understand and was patient with all my questions. Her attention to detail was impressive, and she always kept me informed of the progress of my case, so I never felt left out or in the dark.

Overall, working with Ms. Hwang was a great experience, and she made a difficult situation much more manageable. She is a fantastic lawyer, and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of legal representation.

I just wanted to reach out and express my sincerest gratitude for all of your hard work on my case against my landlord. Your dedication and commitment to the case were truly remarkable and I am so thankful for everything that you have done for me. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed. I am grateful for the time and effort that you put into making sure that my rights were protected and that I received a fair outcome. Thank you for your unwavering support and for being there for me every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer and I am honored to have had you on my side

I contacted lawyer Hwang in 2020 to help me with my divorce. Due to Covid, I could not travel to Korea and lawyer Hwang supported me remotely during all the different phases including at court on my behalf. Lawyer Hwang is extremely capable. She took the time to explain everything at stake and went the extra mile on several occasions which helped a lot during this process. The fact that she speaks perfect English is a strong plus during an international divorce. To any foreigner who needs legal support in Korea, I warmly recommend contacting lawyer Hwang.

Ms. Hwang was recommended to me by several people while I was considering how to handle my divorce. Despite my ex husband’s constant intimidation tactics, Ms. Hwang was able to give me solid legal advice during our first consultation and ease my worries enough to go ahead with a lawsuit. As I’m sure many foreign women might feel, I was worried I might be at a disadvantage in a lawsuit like this and I didn’t have much money saved to spend on something as expensive as a lawsuit. But Ms. Hwang was very accommodating to my situation and allowed me to pay some of my fees in installments which helped me immensely. Having a competant attorny is well worth the money spent. Throughout my trial, Ms. Hwang made clear and persuasive arguments making the best use of all the evidence I provided her with. She was also able to expose the flaws and inconsistencies in the other party’s arguments with ease. She kept in constant communication with me throughout the process to keep me informed and was always open to answer any questions I had. In the end, she secured the win for me and I’m so grateful for all of her hard work, patience, and time spent on my case. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer.

I had a family law question no one else in Korea could conclusively answer. Lawyer Hwang not only cleared up the question for me, but cited specific reasons for it. Her response time is extremely fast, and she is also brilliant. Thank you so much for your help! 10/10, highly recommend!

Yunjeong Hwang was very professional in helping with my legal case. She was very diligent and punctual. Being a foreigner in Korea that doesn't speak Korean well and dealing with the court was a nightmare. I contacted her, and she swiftly handled matters and provided detailed guidance. She took care of everything, and I am super grateful. I highly recommend Yunjeong to any person needing legal help in Korea.

I have been her client and can't thank her enough for doing much more than I expected. She is the great, smart lawyer who also has a great heart and actually does what an awesome lawyer does, (Make sure her client wins the case. before her I lost my case for the bad defense of the lawyers who knew nothing but to milk me for what they never helped with and not only that, but also they also didn't understand nor speak English well although they said they did when I met them. But luckily I came across Ma. Hwang's name on facebook and went got an interview with her and there was when I met a Korean lawyer with fluent understanding and speaking English ability. She has always been present to listen to what I had to say and worked hard with me to prove my innocence. If you want to have a strong defense for your case, I strongly recommend you look no further and meet her to see the great lawyer and person that she is.

I am writing to recommend Yunjeong Hwang as a labor lawyer in Seoul. I currently work on an E-2 visa as an English teacher and recently contacted Ms. Hwang with an urgent labor and immigration matter. Over the course of the next few weeks, she made time in her busy schedule to schedule in-person meetings each time there was a development in my case as she recognized the urgency of the situation.

Although Ms. Hwang was born and raised in Korea, her written and spoken English is excellent. This results in the best of both worlds, as she can understand the needs of her foreign clients while at the same time she is familiar with Korea's legal system and culture. Thus, she is able to defuse many situations by speaking to government officials in a calm and respectful manner. In my opinion, this is as important a part of her services as is her legal advice.

With respect to legal fees, these are undoubtedly expensive for a person on a limited fixed-income, which is the case with most foreigners in Korea. Nevertheless, Ms. Hwang's fees were very reasonable for the services she provided. She is sensitive to her clients' financial situation and takes that into account when charging her fees, which are typically on an hourly basis.

In summary, Ms. Hwang takes a practical approach to resolving her clients' issues. I was very emotional about the events at my workplace, yet I felt reassured each time I spoke with Ms. Hwang. Although my situation is not entirely resolved, I have no hesitation in recommending Ms. Hwang to foreigners with labor or employment issues. You will be in good hands with this lawyer.

Yunjeong Hwang did an incredible job supporting me through two cases made against an employer. There was a lot of evidence to sift through and while the case went on longer than expected, she continuously reached out and made sure everything was clear to me. She was very diligent and methodical, ensuring everything was correct before submitting materials. She demonstrated empathy and kindness by reassuring me throughout the process. I highly recommend hiring Yunjeong, as she will represent you fairly, especially if you are a foreigner residing in Korea.

Yunjeong Hwang came highly recommended to me. I solicited her services as I was the subject of a criminal complaint under police investigation. This was my first encounter with the law, and as a foreigner living in Korea I was surprised by the severity of the accusation laid against me and how seriously it was being handled by the police.

Yunjeong rose to the occasion and significantly exceeded my expectations. From the moment that I reached out to her she worked diligently on my case, was highly responsive and made herself available at all hours of the day. Importantly, she handled all my interactions with the police and made sure I was treated fairly during my deposition, double-checking all documents to ensure there was no lack in interpretation. She followed up by drafting two opinion letters which appealed to legal precedents that were both powerful and pertinent. But above all, she built excellent rapport with the lead police investigator, which helped secure the police's non-indictment recommendation to the prosecutor.

Yunjeong is highly proficient in English. She has an acute understanding of foreigner needs and how criminal proceedings affect decisions from the Immigration Office. Without her representation there is a strong likelihood I would have been indicted. This would have likely spelled the end of my visa and employment in Korea, even had the court outcome been positive. I cannot thank Yunjeong enough for her tenacity, professionalism and kindness. Do not hesitate to call her about your case!

I engaged Ms. Yunjeong Hwang in 2018 to handle my complicated divorce case that involved multiple court jurisdictions in three different countries. Ms. Hwang diligently sorted through this divorce case and brought it to a resolution this year, 2020. During these two plus-years, Ms. Hwang patiently communicated each step of the court proceeding to me while I was not residing in Korea. During court appearances, Ms. Hwang consistently exhibited professionalism and integrity. I recommend Ms. Hwang's professional legal services to anyone that might need legal assistance.

I went through a divorce involving physical abuse and other claims where my kids were kidnapped from me and I was blocked from seeing them Ms. Hwang, really helped me a lot in getting access to my kids and over time being able to resolve most of the outlying issues that have spawned throughout the divorce process. I would heavily recommend her and have even to my family or friends who live in Korea, especially because I feel like she really has a heart geared towards family health and doing what’s right for the parties that side with her. She is especially good at understanding and making the comprises necessary for any legal concerns, or visitation and custody rights where there may be a conflict in your pre-emptive or ongoing, or even post-divorce process. I know in my case there were several issues and incidents that came about from my personal abusive experience I suffered with my ex, and she was very helpful and understanding throughout the process. So, if you’re looking for a lawyer, and your in a tough situation, please try to contact her as I believe she will be able to fit any situation you may be facing, no matter how tough it is.

About two years ago, I found myself in a very difficult situation: Both my spouse-at-the-time and I were foreign nationals in Korea, had married in another country, but lived our entire married lives in Korea. We couldn’t divorce in the country in which we were married because neither of us had lived there for more than a decade, and to complicate things even further, the aforementioned individual to whom I was married was now living in a third country. After reading several stellar reviews about Ms Hwang, I contacted her with my situation and instead of being pessimistic with regards to the circumstances, she let me know that if I was patient, she would do some research on the laws in Korea and the country in which we were married. There was also a young child involved and I wanted sole custody. Ms Hwang has always been very quick to respond to any queries and her professionalism in every respect has been absolutely incredible. Two weeks ago she let me know the wonderful news that not only am I divorced, but that I also have sole custody of my son. I would recommend Ms Hwang in a heartbeat to anyone who needs an uber-professional lawyer.

I hired Ms. Hwang to represent me in bringing a case against a former employer and she helped me immensely. Through Ms. Hwang’s strong knowledge of the law and professionalism I was able to obtain a result in my case that I was happy with. I believe Ms. Hwang’s agreeable disposition helped when dealing with the authorities involved in my case, particularly in contrast to the inappropriate and unprofessional conduct of the other side’s representation. Ms. Hwang went beyond her legal obligation to help me in what was a very complicated case. It is for these reasons that I would recommend her to others who need legal representation.

I have never needed a lawyer before, and as I couldn't be in the country for my divorce, Ms Hwang was prompt and clear in what was to be expected. It was very emotionally difficult for me but Ms Hwang was very professional, which was crucial for me. I would recommend her to anyone who needs accurate and honest help when dealing with Korean law.

I was recommended to seek legal advice from Ms. Hwang from a friend of mine. From our very first conversation, she was very patient, understanding and willing to help. I felt very comfortable choosing her to represent me legally. Together we were able to put together a case that helped go in my favor. Ms. Hwang made the entire process easy and as stress free as possible. She worked hard to make sure that our case was put together with great care, detail and made to the highest of standards. She was even willing to travel to be there with me during the investigation process. I am thankful to that friend for their recommendation and forever thankful to Ms. Hwang!

I engaged Ms. Hwang for a negotiation with my in-laws and errant husband which escalated into a civil and complicated divorce case which spanned 2 countries and was made even more messier by the uncooperativeness of the opponent. Ms. Hwang was very diligent in sorting through all the evidence and in fighting for my rights. She was also very compassionate and understanding of my emotions and has helped me to find a direction towards resolving the messy legal cases with her professional advice. During these 3 years, she has consistently shown professionalism and integrity and has patiently communicated every step of the proceedings to me. She has also gone over and beyond in trying to assist me to resolve the issues that have arisen due to the other party’s non-cooperation and I am always thankful for that. I would recommend Ms. Hwang’s legal services to anyone who requires legal assistance and prefers a lawyer with a heart.

I am so grateful for Lawyer Hwang’s dedication and professionalism. I appreciated her excellence on legal work on my behalf. One thing I like the most is she’s easy to reach out in every delicate situation(abduction case on my son).When she’s working with me, she make sure to execute every single detail to make the possible way for the best outcome. As a client I highly recommended Lawyer Hwang for her knowledge and compassion. Thank you for representing my case.

I would 100% recommend Ms. Hwang’s services I am very satisfied with my results. She is very responsive, very professional, and very knowledgeable on Korean laws. She also speaks English very well and can answer all the questions you need answered in regards to your specific case. Thank you Ms. Hwang!

I contacted Lawyer Hwang after seeing her comments on a community forum. From the outset, I thought that she seemed very professional, and very dedicated to her clients - and I was absolutely right. Lawyer Hwang is fast and thorough. She dealt with my divorce case with both a lawyer's rigour and a human ear. She made a very difficult process much easier for me to handle - in terms of the law and in terms of my personal feelings about the case - and left me with a great deal of peace of mind. Lawyer Hwang is tenacious, knowledgeable and professional. Above all, she is dedicated to her clients and sensitive to their ordeal. I am very glad that I followed my instincts from the start, and I would strongly recommend Lawyer Hwang's legal services to anyone that needs deft legal assistance with a human touch

Ms. Hwang helped me with a labor law case which she handled very professionally and quickly. My boss had not paid me for 2 months and he had also not given me my severance. I also had to leave the country quickly due to a family emergency. Ms. Hwang handled EVERYTHING for me after I gave her power of attorney on my behalf. Ms. Hwang went to the labor law office, had meetings and calls with the investigator and was very responsive and always let me know when there were new proceedings in my case. After 2+/- months my case was done from beginning to end! I will be recommending her for all of my friends in the future! Thank you so much Ms. Hwang

I was unable to return to Korea due to Covid and had unfinished personal affairs that needed to be wrapped up. I reached out to Yunjeong via email, and received a prompt response, she swiftly handled matters and provided detailed guidance. The attending party who was present with her in court, informed me that Yunjeong was outstanding & a tremendous support helping the case with the judge and saving me from having to attend myself. I am honestly so thankful for her services and assistance. Glad to have all my affairs wrapped up. I highly recommend Yunjeong for any expat needing guidance in Korea.
