Li and his team helped me close on a home - had a last minute mortgage change and Li & co were able to pull through even with the last minute change and the time crunch. He was professional, thorough, reassuring, and knowledgeable. He was always available to field questions and concerns in a timely and effective manner. Will definitely be using his legal services again.
