JORDAN U.
Thank you Ji-In & your SLG colleagues for being “my voice”. Lawsuits are difficult and quite often the first thing that is compromised is the truth and lastly your life. Your team challenged the other party to face the truth and hear “my voice”. That is the 1st step towards justice. The final step was a quick, fair and equitable outcome. I am forever grateful to SLG for getting my life back and most of all my dignity.
