Xinying and her team were on the ball from day one. Not once did I feel lost or in doubt. I received updates on a weekly and sometimes daily schedule. I felt confident through the entire process that I had a winning combo on my side. Xinying is genuine and efficient. Just as I was mentally preparing myself for a tedious chore, it was over. Case resolved! I highly recommend Ms. Valerian to anyone in need of a great attorney without hesitation.
-Eddie, client
I'm so glad I was referred to Xinying, by a close friend. From the get-go, she was a great communicator, listened intently to my situation and how it was impacting me. She provided guidance on how to approach the situation, communicating in a style that I understood (not legal speak), and giving concrete actions, so that I can take the best action for me. I greatly appreciate her guidance. Thank you, Xinying!
Dominic is an excellent lawyer. He has a pleasant demeanor, is a quick thinker and knows the law in that he can think outside the box with assurity , without being abrupt. He has respect for others in his field which is very apparent. In our professional dealings with Dominic, he has proven to gain our complete confidence.
In consulting with Dominic on a very small matter, to my pleasant surprise, he didn't try to incorporate extensive attorney fees. It was short and sweet! I can count on one hand the number of lawyers that would forgo fees in the light of proper legal advice in litigation matters. Dominic, you rock!
