An Excellent Service, Mr. Kang is a highly sought solicitor. Very knowledgeable about the subject to hand and extremely confident with the advice given to me at the time of a stressful situation.

I would recommend Kang and Co Solicitors above any other company I’ve spoken too.

Above all I got the outcome I desired based upon Mr. Kang expertise.​

Miss. P


Very clearly explained the process, took his time over getting a very clear and accurate history of events and mitigation. Barrister on the day was well prepared, went over key mitigation and presented it well in court, an excellent advocate. Barrister clearly explained possible outcomes and most realistic outcome.

Excellent service from initial contact to finishing the court case. Would recommend to anyone.
