  • -Keith D., a real estate client

    “Jean is extraordinary. It is inconceivable to me that there is any better choice than Jean. From the start, Jean was clear, concise, and proactive. Whenever I wanted to discuss something, she was highly responsive and patient. When I ran into difficulties with a slow-moving condo board, she didn’t miss a beat, stepped up and coached me while also coordinating with my real estate agent, and went way beyond what I had any right to expect. Though I’ve sold and bought properties before, I’m no expert. With Jean’s advice and coaching, though, I understood everything and had what I needed to make good decisions–on legal matters and beyond. As most high performers are, Jean is also backed by an excellent team. In my lifetime, I’ve had now four closings. I know the difference between adequate and excellent. Jean is excellent.”

  • - Lauren C., a business client

    “Jean patiently listened to all of my questions and thoughtfully considered which business structure would be best for me. When it came time to navigate the required paperwork, she was beyond flawless. She even helped me with things that were probably below her expertise, just so that I could rest easy knowing that everything was done correctly. If I had to use 3 words to describe Jean I would say she is precise, considerate and intelligent. She represents exactly what I was looking for in a lawyer, and I’ve met enough to know that these qualities are incredibly rare.”

    “Ms. Chou was extremely responsible, detail-oriented and relentless, a trait that I love in an attorney representing my company. At the same time she can be negotiable with opposing counsel when necessary. An excellent attorney.”

  • You’re in great hands. Ms. Chou provides an unparalleled service.. She is trustworthy, efficient and very well organized. I hired her to establish my 2nd business as an LLC, and she made the process so easy and seamless for me. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. In addition to this, she manages all my legal needs including very intricate construction and design contracts. Her office is very well located in a wonderful building. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.

  • Jean is fantastic. Although I’m an attorney myself, the legal and technical intricacies of NYC real estate law were new to me – Jean, from the outset to finish, explained the entire process to me and meticulously went through each provision in each legal document put in front of me. She would foresee and preempt issues before they came up during the negotiation process. Since I have a busy day job, I very much appreciated that Jean would send me status updates and reminders so the closing didn’t fall behind schedule. Most importantly, she was always pleasant and cheerful, which made this arduous process much more tolerable. I was so glad to be done with closing, but sad to end the working relationship with Jean!
