Practice Areas:
Corporate Law, Contracts and Agreements, Labor Dispute, Inheritance, Divorce, Real Estates, Car Accidents, Bankruptcy, etc.

All our attorneys (Bengoshi lawyers) and staffs can communicate in English without a translator. We believe this is important because not all the translators are competent for legal matters and the lack of competence may cause major risks in solving your legal issue.
