Competent, professional, compassionate
JP is extremely professional, tenacious, and knowledgable about family law.. But at the same time, he is down to earth and a man of his word. After seeing another lawyer who was very negative about the predicted outcome of my case, JP was positive that he would keep it out of court and the parties met with their own lawyers which was cheaper and faster. If I went with any other lawyer, it was cost me thousands. Even in some dire situations, he responded to my emails (during his own bday party!) and reassured me he was on top of things. My situation was a bit complicated because I did my separation agreement myself. Had I done it with JP the divorce would have been finalized faster. He is well versed with the judicial system and my case played out exactly how he predicted. In the end, I am very happy I went with him and I highly recommend him. 5 out of of 5. I would do 6 if I could!
BEST Famlily Law Lawyer !!!
I experienced with two other lawyers and wasted nearly $8000 on them before I met Mr.Ung. I felt so lucky that I can finally had this extremely professional Family Law lawyer with my case. He is available to you at ANYTIME! He always replied email or calls promptly (within 30 minutes). He is very knowledgeable and he tried his best to looked out for my best interests. He remembered every detail of my case and always on top of work. He was trying to save me time and money that he chased the other lawyers involved to get anything done timely. He was always honest, discussed options and never made any false promises as to the outcome of my matter. I am extremely pleased and grateful to Mr.Ung for his abilities, for not sugar coating anything, and for keeping his word! I would strongly recommend him to anyone going through family issues.
Excellent Divorce Lawyer
Jean Pierre has helped me with a complicated divorce. He is very knowledgeable and guided me though a very tough situation. Very professional and prompt with replying to any questions I had. His guidance has made this situation less stressful. He was on my side and I felt like I could always count on him. I would and have recommended him to anyone looking for a divorce lawyer.
Professional, efficient, and trustworthy
Jean-Pierre has recently helped me on my divorce issues. All the professional opinions he gave were very helpful. He was there to show me every step until the end, and all my worries were taken care of by him. He was more like a friend to me who really cares about my concerns. I was glad that I have chose him as my lawyer.
Compassionate, efficient, and professional
I could not have asked for a more compassionate, efficient, and professional attorney to work with. JP was there every step of the way during my separation. He explained my options with clarity, answered all of my questions in an expedient manner, and always kept me abreast of the entire process. He is a great listener and this is such an important communication skill for a lawyer.
Professional, constructive and good value
I recently engaged jean Pierre to review and critique a separation agreement drafted by another lawyer, at that lawyers request. I found Jean Pierre approachable, professional and dealt with my matter in a direct, thorough but concise manner. I was very pleased with the results and excellent value for the money spent.
Great Professionalism and Wise
I found Jean-Pierre Ung to be very knowledgeable and very helpful. I remember our first meeting as he made me feel very comfortable as the reason for seeking him out in the first place was regarding my divorce. He gave me very insightful information and proceeded to be quick in communicating next steps for me and his willingness to be proactive with my case. Unfortunately, my case is a special international case and Jean-Pierre decided it would be best that I seek the assistance of someone who has more practice with international jurisdiction then himself. I was disappointed that I wasn't going to be working with him anymore, but, I highly respect his humble and honest truth. He suggested some really great lawyers, one of which is currently handling my case and I am very pleased with her services. I would recommend Jean-Pierre in the future and may deal with him again regarding some minor paper work as compared to others, his rates are reasonable.
Wonderful experience, wonderful lawyer!
I have to say it was a GREAT experience with JP in my case. Prior to choose JP to represent me in my divorce case, I had done a lots of researches on the internet, I also interviewed 3 other lawyers before I met JP, even one of them is top ranked lawyer and charged me $500 per hour for consultation. When I met him the first time, I knew he is the one because he was the only one did the homework and read through all 7 pages background of the case which I call it “Journey” before the meeting, hence he remembered all the little details from the journey which surprised me big time. Unlike the other lawyers who will only tell you “I will do my best to help you”, instead he helped me on every step of the say. He understood that my case is very complicated with multiple assets as well as the custody issues involved. JP coached me to understand my rights and obligations, family law, court process as well some useful websites to learn the knowledge for legal knowledge, and most important is how shall I do to protect my daughter and myself. Every single suggestion JP provided is fully considered the best benefit to me and my daughter which was truly appreciated! You can feel that he is available to you at anytime, even he was on vacation or off sick home. I have thrown tons of questions to him, not even single question got missed, he replied email or calls usually within 30-60 minutes. I also have to mention Maria, his assistant, did fantastic job in preparing all the paperwork and research in a very efficient way. To me and my daughter, JP is not only a lawyer who represent my case but also a friend who knows what I need and what I deserve to have in the case. For sure lawyer fee is not cheap but you will know what you paid for. Every single penny you paid in your case will be paid back in your future life, you won’t feel any regrets for choosing him as your lawyer. I have no doubt to highly recommend him to anyone who needs the help in your family law case.
JP helped me with my separation matter. It was a very complicated case with three lawyers involved. He demonstrated incredible integrity and honesty and did everything he could to keep my legal fees down. However, when it came down to it, JP was not afraid to go to court if there were no other available options. We attended at a motion where the judge granted us everything we were looking for and dismissed all the claims of the other lawyers. We were would have been granted massive costs, had we not settled. JP was very professional, he always responded and did work right away. He was always completely on top of things, and even had to continually chase the other lawyers involved just to get anything done. He was completely knowledgeable and capable, despite the complexity of my case. He would always present me with a number of strategies to choose from, and was always looking out for my best interests. I would absolutely recommend him.
a professional lawyer always makes family related issues simple and easy
JP helped me with will and POA in late January.He was very thoughtful and gave me clear explanation and instructions, so that the process was clear,simple and easy for me. I was again impressed by his professional services. Thank you！
An honest lawyer
Being a total rookie to the matters of family law, I came to JP with a need to draft a complex pre-marital agreement. JP ensured that I understood everything involved, every step of the way, and made sure that I was comfortable before proceeding with anything. He is very sharp, and extremely responsive. There are a lot of 'smart' lawyers out there, but honest ones? Not so much. JP is HONEST. Not to mention, his response times are what I was most happy with. He is very knowledgeable in his area of practice, diligent, and truly looked out for my best interests; while also ensuring that we dealt with the matter with fairness and without bias. He cared for my relationship. Quick turnaround time and high quality of work has lead me to a lawyer for life. He is no BS, and tells you like it is. I appreciate that. I highly recommend JP for any family law matters. In fact I'll be back to do my will shortly
Jean-Pierre came highly recommended and I can understand why. We hired him to draft our Wills and Power of Attorneys. My wife and I hadn't done them before so we had a lot of questions. JP was very knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process. He answered all of our questions very quickly, even responding to emails in the evening and on weekends. I would definitely recommend Jean-Pierre's services to anyone.
Excellent Family / Divorce Lawyer with excellent results!
JP helped me to navigate through my difficult separation and divorce with clarity and focus. He gave me excellent advice and had my best interest in mind every step of the way. I highly recommend JP. He also always responded promptly to my emails and phone calls even when he was supposed to be on vacation. You will not be disappointed with JP's legal services!
Professional , high quality and friendly Service
Intersection of intelligence and friendliness! Jean-Pierre is a smart, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely professional and personable lawyer, the one you can trust with all kinds of your legal work. My husband & I, were very happy with the service we received from Law Office of Jean-Pierre Ung! I look forward to working with him again on a publishing contract review !
Separation made easy!
My separation agreement went smoother (less painful) than i initially expected, despite some resistance from the other side. Any hurdles were dealt with promptly and efficiently. JP handled the entire process with professionalism and competence. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a family law professional.
Exceptional service from an Exceptional lawyer
Worked on a marriage contract with JP recently. He is always very prompt with answering and even answers on weekends because he is always working and trying his best for clients. He is accommodating and was able to do most of the correspondence by email/phone. He is honest, and takes care of his client, he noted concerns about the drafts prepared by the other side and came up with ways of amending it in a way that satisfies both parties. He tries to save his clients money but giving them options and weighing pros and cons of both. He works at lightning speed and I had to tell him to slow down because everything was done faster than i can review. He is the type you can trust because he will always put his clients best interest at heart and doesn’t take advantage of people who are not familiar with legal issues. He takes time to explain everything and is an all around good person. I hope to use him in the future again when drafting my will.
Exceptional, timely, and affordable service!
I solicited JP’s help with my divorce after having exhausted many other options. For months, I tried to engage the Court, the Hague Convention, and various agencies to grant my divorce with no success. JP has expert knowledge of the process and skillfully drafted and reviewed documents, prepared motion materials and dealt with the Court on my behalf. As a result of his work, we were able to get my divorce granted in less than 2 months. JP was very friendly and responsive. He treated my case with due care and he saved me legal fees! I highly recommend his services!
a dedicate,trustworthy lawyer who will help you to solve your family matters
I had a very rough short marriage, but i had a very smooth and peaceful separation process thanks to JP! He not only helped me to settle my case in 4 months, but also helped me to reduce my loss to minimum. It is amazing!! Thank you JP! i would definitely recommend him to whoever is in complicated family issues. He gets back to you, he knows his stuff and he's professional. He will help!

Excellent and trustworthy lawyer.
I used to work as a financial adviser. One of the rules of thumb is that everyone should have a team of professionals just in case something happens; a doctor, an accountant, and a lawyer. I have never been in need for a layer, until now. Jean-Pierre is my lawyer since I am going through a messy divorce. He is very knowledgeable, experienced, professional, and organized. His letter drafting skills are second to none. But, his greatest asset is that he cares and I can trust him. He keeps me focused on matters that are most important and need my immediate attention. Also, his assistant Maria, is very helpful, task oriented and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend Jean-Pierre.
Jean-Pierre Ung is an exceptional lawyer. He assisted with the drafting of my seperation agreement. He was knowledgeable and eager to ensure that I was informed during the process. He has excellent communications silks and successfully mediated a highly stressful negotiation. He demonstrated compassion and was empathetic to my situation. I am grateful that I was able to find such a stand up lawyer.
Professional, efficient and personable...
Three words come to mind when I think of my experience with Jean-Pierre: Professional, Efficient and Personable. Professional, in that he both explained the process and what to expect with incredible detail. His account of what to expect matched exactly what transpired in what was a very difficult divorce. Through his guidance, many of the difficulties were averted, and an amicable settlement was reached. He was also incredibly efficient, likely as a result of his depth of experience. He guided me through the entire process, detailing all required information each step along the way. Communication was also never an issue, and often a quick emails was all that he required to resolve gaps. But even though he was both professional and efficient, he was also very personable and understood the emotional impact of this difficult time of in my life. Overall, my experience with Jean-Pierre was outstanding. I couldn’t imagine going through this difficult issue, without his guidance.
Best lawyer you will ever find
I have never met a more caring and professional lawyer in all my years of dealing with lawyers, I stress caring because it's the first thing we look for in a time of need, professional because he has demonstrated to me how precise he works and taking time to explain everything until it's clear. I would highly recommend Mr Ung , he helped me thru my divorce and without his help I don't know what I would have done. What a special person and so kind. you will be very happy with him.
Mr. Ung is professional and attentive. We were recommended to him through a friend and his work ethics are above average. He helped us with a divorce which was lost in the system for 15+ years and the previous lawyer never followed up. With a lot of research it was finally completed and we were able to get married. He also helped us with family response, where they would not assist us in any way. We have now gone back to him once again to re-write our wills. We have recommended him to various friends and they have all been very happy with the outcome. He takes the time to listen to us and also took time to explain each process to us. We never left his office confused and always felt confident leaving everything in his hands.
Highly Competent, Professional and Compassionate
I first retained Jean-Pierre Ung on recommendation of a friend while going through a difficult divorce. I was immediately impressed by Mr. Ung’s professionalism, diligence and forthright approach to advocacy. When Mr. Ung represented my matter in court, he was an articulate, strategic and a wise advocate. I am very grateful to JP Ung for his competent representation which resulted in the fair resolution of my custody, support and divorce matter. I also appreciated Mr. Ung’s compassion, sense of service and likeable personality which gave me confidence and peace of mind throughout my ordeal. After six years, I recently called on Mr. Ung for assistance in terminating support. To minimize my cost, JP provided steps for me to resolve the matter without his further involvement. I followed that advice, support was terminated, and Mr. Ung’s fee was negligible. Thus, I highly recommend the services of Jean-Pierre Ung; a brilliant legal mind with a humanitarian approach to practicing law. OLM
Professional and knowledgeable
During my separation and divorce, I have contacted several lawyers, and JP was the only one that was honest about the journey. He was professional, but at the same time, he was approachable. I am 110% sure he's the only lawyer that would reply you on a Friday night when you have an urgency. He helped me get through my difficult divorce, going to court, filing motions and making sure that I am protected and not bullied. I would highly recommend him, even if you don't live in the Markham area. I drive 1.5 hours to see him and it was definitely worth it.
Very prompt, professional and efficient service!
I first contacted Jean-Pierre two years ago when my ex was interfering with my access and visitation with my daughter. He was very prompt with his response and a few days later, we met in person at this office. JP was extremely professional and efficient and he gave me some very sound advice that allowed my ex and I to work out the issue between ourselves. I contacted JP again earlier this year about increasing my access and visitation. It's still early in the process but JP has helped tremendously to allay my fears and has given me the confidence to pursue more time with my daughter. I would not hesitate to recommend JP and his office to anyone who might be going through a difficult separation or divorce.
High quality service, professional, knowledgeable, friendly
I contacted Mr. Ung for my divorce matter. He explained the whole procedure in detail, what will happen next, what I need to face next., what should I prepare for. He is so knowledgeable and very patient. When I was experiencing this life difficulty, he also refer a marriage consultant for me to help me went through. This is not part of his job, but he helped me as a friend. Although his schedule is very busy, when I got emergency issues, he met me before his regular business hour. I really really appreciated. He also replies my emails very quickly. Very good lawyer, highly recommended.
Excellent, better than expected service.
JP provided exceptional service. In dealing with my matrimonial issue, he was patient and sensitive in listening to the issues and offered many good suggestions and view points on how to deal with my issues. He has great inter-personal skills, and communicated in a way that I always felt both heard and understood. The things that I was most impressed with were his very prompt replies and actions to all of my requests, which included emails and messages outside of normal business hours. He was also proactive in getting things moving and not allowing the matters to get stale. I always felt like he was in control of the situation and was clearly looking out for my best interests. With scheduled calls, he was on the line, calling on time, accurately to the minute, and wasted little time by getting onto the issues at hand very quickly. Lastly, he always did what he said he would do, and reported promptly regarding what he had done, and advised me on the next steps to take. I never had to chase him up on any issues. I strongly recommend his services.
I hired Mr.Ung because I was going through a divorce. Mr.Ung was very pleasent and explained the whole process of what was going to happen next. He pays close attention to detail. Mr. Ung is prompt when returning calls/emails when I had questions. Very knowledgeable about family law and I would highly recommend Mr. Ung for any legal matters. Thank you once again JP!! He is a great lawyer!
In 2010, I wanted to find a lawyer in Markham who could do a quick, simple and affordable divorce. After reading several reviews, I decided to call the law office of Jean-Pierre Ung. JP was professional, competent and knowledgeable. He explained the divorce process in a straight forward and easy to understand manner. I did not have to do any follow up on the legal process as I received updates from the office. I was greatly impressed at how fast the simple divorce was completed. In 2017, I went back to JP to draft a will and power of attorney. He was always prompt in replying to my email inquiries. His service was outstanding and the fees are very reasonable. When my Uncle was looking for an Estate lawyer, I referred JP immediately. I highly recommend JP as he is honest, trust worthy and efficient.
Caring, understanding and easy to speak to
I met Mr. Ung during the lowest points of my life. I would not have been able to get through my separation and divorce without him. He was not my first choice for a divorce lawyer and I paid heavily both financially and on a personal level. After firing the first lawyer that I retained who offered nothing other than empty promises and little substance, a friend referred Jean-Pierre. From our first conversation I knew he was different than the rest. He didn't sugar coat anything. He was honest about the biased practices of family law in Ontario and the difficulties men faced with issues of child custody. With the uphill battle that was fought and the trial that ensued, Jean-Pierre worked tirelessly and got the results I wanted. I have sole custody of my child and assets were divided fairly. My friends and colleagues are amazed about this lawyer who was able to get sole custody for a man. I am happy that years later I can call JP Ung not just my lawyer but also a friend.
Smart, dependable, and honest
JP helped me through an emotional divorce. He was the second lawyer whom I have consulted, and he got me immediate answers on the first day that I met him. He helped me analyze my separation agreement every step of the way during which he showed exemplary professionalism and knowledge. He was also readily reachable and incredibly responsive. I felt secure with his counsel, empathy and honesty. During the onset of my divorce, JP was not only my lawyer, but also my support. I would like to take this opportunity to thank JP for handling my matter better than anyone else could. I look forward to my new life which JP helped expedite. Thank you JP!
Consistently delivers results above expectations
JP has consistently delivered results demonstrating how dedicated he is at completing requests on an immediate basis. My expectations on the quality and speed of JP work have exceeded all expectations. I can’t think of any professional whom I’ve dealt with that deals with issues so completely and yet so urgently. It is unfortunate that the other party delayed results and I would without hesitation have him draft the agreement instead. Thanks JP for being in my corner during this time.
Terrific, honest and likeable lawyer
I highly recommend JP if you are looking for a great divorce lawyer! He is straight forward and goes step by step about the process. JP responded to my phone calls or emails in a very timely manner. JP is very trustworthy and kept me in the loop with all the proceedings. He is a great guy and would definitely use him in the future for other legal advice. Thank you JP, you made the situation very easy and straight forward....thank you again!!
Efficient, meticulous lawyer
I retained JP as my lawyer to help me with my separation and divorce. Not only was he very efficient and meticulous with his work, but he was also personable and made me feel comfortable throughout the process. His ability to minimize stress and conflict in an otherwise undesirable situation was essential to helping me feel more at ease. He reassured me that he would make the whole process as smooth as possible and he delivered. JP was always easy to contact and quick to address my questions and needs. He gave sound professional advice and paid attention to detail. I particularly appreciated JP for following up with me on a timely basis to ensure that we were moving forward with the case and that no additional concerns or issues had arisen. Thank you JP for all your help and assistance. You made my life so much easier during that very difficult time.
Professional, trustworthy, and responsive
JP advised my father on a very complicated and emotional estate matter. Not only was JP clearly knowledgeable and experienced, he was honest and insightful about the practical considerations of such a case, in addition to my father's legal options and position. JP was very responsive and patient with my father (who speaks little English) in explaining the legal system and potential scenarios so my father could make informed and reasoned decisions. He was also flexible in having calls after hours or even meeting us on weekends as needed, which was greatly appreciated. My family truly felt JP had our father's best interests at heart. JP continues to be our family's trusted legal advisor.
Highly recommend! He is my second lawyer, and since the day we’ve been working together I had never need to worry about "my lawyer" not responded me when I asking him a question / in an emergency situation. His reaction is very quick, being there whenever you need him. My former lawyer can't be trust at this point. Also Mr. Ung always followed up, knows every details / update of my case. He has very high negotiation skills, before the four-parties meeting; he helped me with the preparation both documentary and emotionally, pointed out what’s right to do during the meeting. Thanks Mr. Ung his high negotiation skills, his expertise and experience, make me got the greatest benefit. Just can’t say “THANK YOU! enough.
JP is one of the best lawyers I've met by far. He delivers top-notch advice on family legal matters in the most professional and welcoming way. He is truly dedicated and determined to the matters presented to him. He is very skilled and experienced in his practice, having understood many different types of clients. He is authentic and true to his word, getting straight down to the matter of the fact. At the end of the day, I just want to thank JP for being honest and trustworthy which is very refreshing when it comes to lawyers. He was truly dedicated and determined to my matter.
An excellent efficient lawyer
We needed to update our wills. JP was recommended to me by a friend. He was professional, helpful, efficient and made sure that we understood our choices. I was so happy with JP that when my son bought his first home I made sure that he made an appointment with JP to get his affairs in order. I believe you can never be too young to properly look after your financial affairs. Thank you JP for all your help my family really appreciates it.
Very professional and committed to helping clients
JP is the ideal family lawyer. Very professional and committed who cares about his clients. I highly highly recommend JP and his firm!
A great attorney and a friend to have.
JP was extremely professional, extremely knowledgeable, and on top of that, extremely considerate as a lawyer and a friend. I could not have found a better attorney to help me through, literally the worst time of my life.
Took great care of me!
JP was a pleasure to deal with. Very personable and no BS approach. He took care of my interests. I'm spreading the word because good and honest service is truly hard to find.
Thank You Mr.Ung!
Thank you for all of your hard work. I don't know where I would be without you and your office. Got everything done so my family and I can have peace of mind and enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas and the best to you and your family for next year!
Great Quality Service
Excellent and expedited service from Mr. Jean-Pierre Ung. I needed help with my legal matters urgent and Mr. Ung's law firm understood the situation, gave me an appointment on the same day and got the job done. Thank you for an excellent and pleasant experience. I would highly recommend you to all my friends.
Professional, personable and thorough
It had been a difficult time going through a separation and divorce which was worsened by a previous lawyer that I had to severe services. A blessing in disguise or I would’ve never found JP. From beginning to end, Jean-Pierre was exceptional; explained each step, addressed my questions and kept me informed throughout the process. He was and continued to be very thorough and prompt in his responses which assured my case was in good hands. Jean-Pierre is very personable and made a difficult situation much less stressful. My only wish was that he practiced all kinds of law so that I could have the same assurances in other areas as well but I respect his reasons for specialization. His professionalism exceeded all expectations and I only have good things to say about him and the great service he provides. Thank you Jean-Pierre.
Reliable, Efficient and Professional
My wife and I have known Mr. Ung for quite some time and we have come to be very fond of him. He is very friendly and kind, so we befriended him, and he is like a part of our family now. Recently, we bought a house and we needed a lawyer, so we called him up. He told us that he doesn’t do real estate, but was able to send us to his colleague who is. Mr Ung has helped us and even our families with so many matters. Small ones and big ones. He was always there for us with advice and or comforting words of wisdom. Just let’s say, we completely trust him as a person and as a lawyer. We are expecting our second baby to our family very soon, and we will definitely go back to him for wills
Trustworthly ,Professional and friendly.
I went to Mr. Ung in 2002 after my mom had passed away, I needed a lawyer that I could trust 100 %.MR. Ung was very supportive ,Professional and friendly .Recently I had some matters to take care of 12 years later and went back to MR Ung. I would recommend him 100 % if you need a lawyer that you can trust. Sue .P.
Speedy, professional and helpful
I was in need of a lawyer and had searched for a lawyer on the internet and depended mostly on honest reviews. I had a divorce issue that required immediate help. Upon seeing Jean-Pierre Ung had great reviews on LawyerRatings.com, I contacted him via email, and within the hour he responded back to me and help me with my legal issue. I really appreciated the help on the phone and email. He saved me tremendous amount of time by responding instantly and even emailed me templates to start filling out my information to save further time and money. I find him very honest and upfront, he does not beat around the bush. I was very impressed and very much appreciated his honestly. I will 100% refer him to anyone in need of a lawyer.
I needed a Lawyer but I also got a Friend.
I worked with JP for my marital affairs and he made what would have been an uncomfortable and dis-pleasurable experience into a painless and positive one. I am still friends with my ex wife probably because of the way JP handled our separation. If you want someone who is honest and straightforward but can also provide you with wisdom as well as legal knowledge he is the right one for you. Of course all of this wouldn't matter if he wasn't quick and efficient with how he handles his client cases. Thank you JP for the fresh start and all the best!
I retained Mr. Ung for my matrimonial matter. He made a very difficult time in my life into a rather pleasant and easy experience. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, hard working and efficient he is also a great person. He handles all matters with urgency and he truly cares about his clients. Thank you for everything!
Professional and Friendly!
Having to face the facts of preparing your Will may not always be the easiest of tasks, and definitely not the most comfortable but Mr. Ung was incredibly gracious and professional with me. At no time in our interactions did he make me feel as though I was asking too many questions, and he was extremely willing to not only answer my queries but provided additional context and made excellent recommendations. Mr. Ung is knowledgable, experienced, confident, professional, and above all friendly and courteous. Thank you to the Law Office of Jean-Pierre! Sincerely, Julia
I have known Mr. Ung for many, many years now. He was referred to me by a dear family friend of mine. Over the years, I feel like Mr. Ung and I also have become family. I have had to deal with an ongoing family matter because my former partner and I have a child together. Anytime I run into trouble, Mr. Ung is there to guide me. Pretty much all I have to say is: if you want a lawyer who not only is good but who also cares about you as a person… then call him.
God bless Mr. Ung.
I brought my father to see Mr. Ung. He was going through a nasty divorce. Seriously, Mr. Ung came through. He also took the time to include me in every discussion, meeting and email. My dad is older and needed my help. Everything was done as a team. He gave my dad legal advice but also dignity, self-respect and confidence by involving him. It is over now. Thankfully. God bless Mr. Ung.
Professional and friendly
Mr. Ung is a rare find. I stumbled on his office while reading his website and these reviews. All I can say is that they are true. He helped me with several matters. He did it quickly. He was very good. All I know is that I will never need him for divorce but whenever I needed general legal questions, he delivered. Thank you and I will come back.
My case involving a substantial separation agreement was going nowhere. My second lawyer was worse than my first. Her only strength was creating more billable hours than results. Enter Jean-Pierre Ung. Recommended by my real estate lawyer Kenneth Goodbrand, Jean-Pierre took on my case, took over the situation and won the day. The creative solution oriented, problem solving methods of his led to a 100% satisfactory conclusion and closed my case in less than 2 months. Jean-Pierre listens, understands then responds in the most prolific legal way I have seen. Working with JP was one of the best professional experiences I've ever had.

Jean-Pierre will give you amazing legal advice and he is very efficient
When I first met Jean-Pierre for a free consultation, I felt comfortable with his demeanor and knowledge in the field. He was more than willing to listen to my concerns and took the time to explain how the law works. Although sometimes I may have got agitated during the process, he was able to bring me back to reality and focus on the task at hand, which was my separation agreement. I knew I was in good hands in dealing with him and his support staff. They were all very professional and were quick to respond to any questions I had, even on weekends or late in the evening. Although going through a separation and then the final divorce is not easy for anyone, I would highly recommend Jean-Pierre and his Team.
Efficient & Straightforward Lawyer
JP was helpful during a difficult time in my life and provided me with professional advice during my divorce. He always responded in a fast & efficient manner, which kept my legal bills as low as possible. In order to accommodate to my busy schedule, he even offered to do discussions over the phone after office hours which I greatly appreciated. He was extremely patient with my questions and concerns, and acted like a brother who actually cared and understood my situation. He is more than just a lawyer who’s only interested about his business. If you’re looking for a hardworking, efficient and honest divorce lawyer, I highly recommend JP.
Outstanding service. Quick and efficient!
I recently used the services of Jean-Pierre Ung. I was extremely impressed with level of service he provided. He was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. In a matter of seconds he was able to direct me in obtaining some replacement divorce documents which in needed in a very short period of time. I was concerned that I wasn't going to get them on time and he assured me that I would. I did. With a few phone calls he made it happen. So thankful. I highly endorse Jean-Pierre and his services. Thank you
So many positive things to say, not only is JP very smart, he doesn't waste time and makes the lawyer client interaction highly engaging and easy! I am so happy to have found him to represent my case... hands down I'm a client for life!
Gets to the point
Mr Ung does what most lawyers should do: get an appropriate assessment and gets to the point. He provided clear and concise assessments of my situation and will put up a fight when things got dirty. Get some advice. It's worth your time.
Most caring and professional lawyer
Jean-Pierre Ung supported me through my separation and subsequent divorce. Understanding my financial constraints together with my background, JP enabled me to manage costs by working closely with him and his team. On occasion when JP didn’t need to be on-site, I had less costly yet very effective representation from a team member. My initial separation was very amicable although JP was sure to protect me by addressing potential future concerns just in case. Sadly we had to lean on those additional clauses when it developed into a very challenging divorce. In the end there were no custody issues as I was left with the children and all bills. When their father walked away, JP was most supportive and helped me navigate the FRO process that we sadly had to lean on. The paperwork was clean leaving no dispute when FRO had to act. JP was understanding of my need to do the best for my children in order to get closure. Now that they are grown I am pleased to have that behind me and be able to move forward with my life. I would highly recommend Jean-Pierre Ung without hesitation.
I was referred to Mr. Ung and upon further research I found that Mr. Ung was heavily praised by everyone who had worked with him. They had commented on his integrity, honesty, efficiency, and caring personality. As I was understandably impressed, I worked with Mr. Ung on my matrimonial matter, which we resolved quickly, and to my satisfaction. He provided me with excellent case law, and took all the right steps in accordance with my wishes and which were in the best interests of the case. I can attest as I have seen how hard working Mr. Ung is, as he is always available, and very flexible with his hours. He is extremely reasonable with his rates, and understanding when it comes to unique or special circumstances. Mr. Ung represents exactly what anyone looks for in a lawyer, and upholds this at all times. I highly recommend Mr. Ung to anyone, no matter their case or circumstances, as he is highly experienced in all areas of law, and consistently provides quality legal services.
As an orthodontic professional, I have had the benefit of interactions with many different lawyers. My experience with JP in the area of contract law was excellent. He took the time to understand my needs, explain various options/scenarios, and guided me through the entire process in a timely and efficient manner. Recommend highly without hesitation.
Gifted lawyer and empathetic person-a rare combination.
A truly gifted lawyer and empathetic person; Jean-Pierre Ung is a rare find. I am blessed to have Mr. Ung as my Lawyer during my remarkably challenging separation, custody issues, including financial/asset divisions and leading up to my divorce order. He exceeded my expectations in all my encounters with him. I am so grateful for his honesty and commendable ability to efficiently deliver closure in a surprisingly short time–saving me needless legal costs. I was treated with respect; my inquiries were always met in a timely manner and he never made me feel like I had a stupid question. Even on occasions where he was not able to attend to my emails right away, I would get a quick reply, “I am in court. Will respond ASAP.” This is the first testimony/review I have ever written. I am putting this in writing as I honestly feel Mr. Jean-Pierre Ung’s high level of professionalism and overall conduct as an empathic individual deserve praise.
People say that I'm difficult, demanding and impatient. Even if that was true, J.P. was able to deal with me. He got things done ASAP! Many thanks to him and his office for helping me with a difficult matter in dealing with Canadian and laws here in the States where I reside. Best of wishes to him at his new office.
JP Ung : Professional, Reliable and Efficient
The subject may seem like an advert, but I have been working on a case with Mr. Ung in Vietnam. He has been very professional, reliable and efficient. It's been great to meet someone with integrity to admit that he doesn't know everything and needs to check it before giving me the advice that I need.
I consulted JP on Wills and Power of Attorney. I have no knowledge in either and was not sure what I needed. JP was very knowledgeable, patient and professional provided an excellent service. He explained in details and ensures all my questions were answered. I would highly recommend him to all my family members and friends. Truly outstanding work! Happy New Year To You and Your Firm.
Honest & Straightforward
JP provided a great experience during a difficult time for my family and I. He was able to provide straightforward options on dealing with multiple legal matters for family estates and disputes. He provided guidance and honest opinions on how to handle the matters, next steps, and expected outcomes. He provided great examples and did extra research to make us feel comfortable and help us understand all angles of our situation. Thanks to him, we will be using his services for all our future family legal needs.
I consulted JP on a DUI after consulting 5 other lawyers. He was the only the lawyer that was honest with me from day one about what to expect. I ended up spending less money, with a satisfactory outcome. I have a job that depends on my drivers license, and he very well may have saved my livelihood. Thanks JP
Jean-Pierre Ung came very highly recommended by someone I trust. JP exceeded my expectations in every way. His response time was lightning quick. His communication was clear, non-evasive and respectful of my billing time. He did what I needed him to do: JP challenged my thinking, without questioning my judgement. I would recommend JP to any close friend, colleague or relative. (perhaps not an X-relative)
Most competent lawyer I've ever met
Mr Ung is the most competent lawyer I've ever met and I've dealt with many in the past both personally and professionally due to my job. My husband and I used Mr. Ung's services for our estate documents. and he was prompt, friendly and thorough. Never once felt like I was being jerked around for more billable hours. Would recommend to anyone.
Thank you Mr. Ung,
I referred Mr. Ung to my sister to deal with a civil litigation matter. He provided her with great advice and assistance. She was extremely happy with his services. Thanks go out to Mr. Ung and his office!
Estate Planning and POA
Mr. Ung was referred to my family from a friend who had used Mr. Ung's services for her divorce and custody case. We used Mr. Ung's services to complete a will and power of attorney for my parents and myself. He was very knowledgeable and was very patient in his explanations to my parents who are more senior. We received prompt responses to all our emails after hours and Mr. Ung was very flexible in his hours since I work 9am to 5pm and had to meet after hours. I would strongly recommend Mr. Ung to everyone who is looking for a knowledgeable lawyer, great service and who doesn't want to pay the Bay St. Lawyer costs.
Highly Recommended Mr.UNG!
I found Mr. Ung's office online. I was skeptical like most people trying to find a lawyer whom I can trust especially because I was dealing with a stressful legal matter. Mr. UNG did not disappoint. He discussed my matter right away with me over the phone and met with me in person promptly. He got everything resolved quickly and I was pleasantly surprised at his more than reasonable fees! Not that I plan to ever need a lawyer again or wish anyone to ever need one, but if I do or anyone I know needs one, then I surely will go back or tell them to go to Mr. Ung.
