"We were very fortunate to have Simpson, Thomas & Associates recommended to us. Our lawyer, Stephen Yung, is caring, skilled, and honest. He also has a good sense of humor which we think is vital in stressful situations. Whenever we had questions or concerns Stephen and his team got back to us quickly. We especially appreciated his willingness to schedule meetings to minimize time away from work, which reduced the stress of the situation. As our case progressed, Stephen clearly explained our options and gave us good advice when we asked for it. This put our minds at ease and enabled us to make the decisions we needed to. We always felt he was fighting for us, have no doubt his work resulted in a fair settlement. We would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and the firm to friends and family."JS
"The car accident which I had in 2013 changed my life in an undesirable direction. Since then, my life was filled with extreme pain and suffering, and eventually I was forced to give up my career which I had pursued over 2 years. In this situation, I was fortunate to contact Simpson, Thomas & Associates and met Stephen Yung. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and thoroughly professional. With his excellent advice and support, I felt confident to access proper treatments and to deal with the insurance company. I sincerely appreciate Stephen Yung and his team what they have done for me and my family. Thank you all."James Ko
"I hired Simpson, Thomas & Associate’s, after my car accident. l requested Steven Yung to be my acting lawyer as l had him represent me a few years earlier and he did a great job at that time, and l knew he would take good care of me now. He’s very professional, caring, and understands the frustrations. He took care of all dealing with ICBC, leaving me to concentrate on my injury and recovery. He was able to get me a fair settlement, and l will not hesitate to call on him if the need comes up in the future. Thanks Steven."HS
