|▲ JungIn / Chief Lawyer Dongsuk Seo|
The law firm JungIn opened door in January 2017 and is located in front of the Seoul Easter District Court in Munjeong-dong, Songpa District, Seoul. One of the strong points of JungIn is young bloods. Led by chief lawyer Dongsuk Seo, Hyojeong Mun and Minhee Jo have extensive knowledge and experience in the field of real estate selling and management, debt collection and many more.
Seo decided to become a lawyer as he grew up watching socially vulnerable to be treated unfairly. And with support of his father who also wished him to be a judge or prosecutor, he majored law at university. In his earlier career after graduation, he engaged in real estate and its finance and also worked as an in-house lawyer of KT during which he dealt with communications related law suits.
“Working as an ordinary office worker prior to lawyer gave me realistic views how things were done in the world of real business and this experience has been a great help to me as a lawyer” says Seo.
Seo is credited for winning a refinancing case of real estate which other law firms did not want to take and also for winning the case of his friend who was charged for malpractice. With these credits and the accumulated knowledge and knowhow of the team, Seo and his team are planning to expand its services to the fields of science technology, collective disputes, various legal conflicts and conflicts relating to fair trade in the coming years.
“It makes me sad by hearing ‘buying a lawyer’ among normal people. Maybe because they are more interested in the job itself rather than the legal services lawyers provide. As the society advances, I hope the people’s awareness on the value of our job might improve also. As for us lawyers, it is our job to make this happen by providing fair and truthful services to every single one of our clients” says Seo.
