Our Philosophy

At Chung & Press, we advise and represent a wide range of clients facing a variety of legal issues from individuals, to entrepreneurs and small businesses, to some of the nation’s largest companies. The firm serves clients in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., as well as clients throughout the United States and worldwide.Prior to establishing Chung & Press, P.C. in 1993, the firm’s founders, Philip Chung and Daniel Press, began their legal careers with large law firms in Washington, D.C. These law firms provided substantial training in the areas of litigation, intellectual property, environmental law, government contracts, commercial law, real estate and international law. More importantly, however, this experience instilled within them the importance of providing a quality work product and aggressively representing the interests of the client. While we have the knowledge and experience that the bigger firms can offer, we also have the flexibility that they lack. We left the downtown firms to be able to cut costs, eliminate bureaucracy, and provide aggressive, innovative legal services to our clients at a reasonable cost. Chung & Press, P.C. continues to emphasize the same philosophy of providing quality services to its clients. We incorporate a large firm mentality of providing superior legal services while working to provide a higher level of personalized attention characteristic of our small firm. We do not over-staff cases with unnecessary personnel. Instead, we utilize our experienced attorneys to provide streamlined, cost efficient legal representation. Our policy is to provide our clients with a thorough evaluation of the merits of each case. As a part of this process, we strive to present a realistic estimate of the fees and costs that will be incurred, allowing the client to make an educated decision on how to proceed. We will consider alternative billing arrangements to reflect the client’s needs, including contingent fees, split contingent fees, hourly fees, and other arrangements. Throughout the representation, we will use every effort to keep the client informed of all developments in the case so that the client may be confident that Chung & Press, P.C. has the matter under control.
