Jang Kang tries to keep one principle foremost in his mind as he approaches each new case, “What if I were sitting on the other side of the desk? How would I want my attorney to treat me and my case?” Mr. Kang believes that success in the courtroom begins with success at the first client interview. He feels that by establishing a relationship with the client that is built on trust, mutual respect and total honesty, any case can be equitably settled.

“I feel it is imperative to take the time to listen closely to my clients in order to not only understand their case, but to understand their principles and values in order that I represent them, as well as my firm, when I step into a courtroom.” said Mr. Kang when asked about what sets him apart from his peers. “There is nothing more rewarding then receiving a winning verdict where I can feel that at every step of the way, my client and I took the moral highground and acted with integrity and high ethics.”

This commitment to principle and moral voracity was instilled in Mr. Kang when he attended college at the University of California located in Santa Barbara, California. While earning his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religious Studies, he saw how cultural and religious traditions affect the motivations and actions of an individual or a group and how those dynamics can be best brought into alignment in order to mediate peaceful settlements between disputing parties.

After graduation, Mr. Kang went on to earn his Juris Doctor at William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada. Before receiving his degree in 2009 Mr. Kang became a highly valued member of the Thomas and Mack Legal Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada. There he successfully represented clients in various immigration matters including U-visa issues, removal of conditional residency, and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases.

In 2010, Mr. Kang worked as an Associate Intern with a respected law firm in Irvine, California researching and drafting legal documents such as complaints, motions, immigration applications and making court appearances on behalf of the firm’s clients. He also served at the ScoreRite Academy in Fullerton, California as a S.A.T. Instructor and College Admissions Counselor. In that capacity he taught classes in reading comprehension, writing, and grammar to prepare students for the S.A.T. examination as well as helping students organize strategies for applications to various colleges and assisting them in developing college admissions essays.

In 2011, Mr. Kang was asked to become an Attorney with an Orange-County based law firm which specialized in mortgage litigation. His duties included negotiating settlements, representing his clients in court, conducting discovery, appeals and trial procedures and diligently making sure his clients rights and needs were properly defended and represented.
As a member of the Hollins Law team, Mr. Kang feels he has found a firm whose ethics, values and dedication to client satisfaction meets the high standards he sets for himself and for the success of each case placed before him.
