For Tae, there’s nothing more satisfying than helping clients achieve the best possible results in complex, difficult cases.

I enjoy that moment when you advise a client their case has settled and you hear the sigh of relief… they finally feel like justice has been done. I went into law school to even the playing field against bullies… and insurance companies are bullies.

Tae is passionate about helping others, believing that to find success, one should guide others to success as well.
