"We have known Ms. Fong for about 6 years when a friend had her as her divorce attorney. We were so impressed by Ms. Fong's performance and the work being accomplished in that matter. We are impressed not only by her legal knowledge and professionalism, but the tender loving care that she provides to her clients with result oriented objectives in mind. We feel that she is a true hearted lawyer who acts with honesty and integrity."

"When I first met Kallen, I was immediately impressed by her warmth and approachability. She was genuinely concerned about my personal well-being and showed great compassion. I never got the feeling that she was watching the clock, anxious to finish our appointment on time, or considered me as just “another client.”
She handled my case with the highest level of professionalism, integrity, and personal care. At one point, she even came to my apartment to deliver some documents. Kallen was always very encouraging, and maintained a positive attitude that helped me cope with the trauma of my divorce.
Kallen is more than a skilled and capable attorney. She has become a trusted mentor and friend. It is a privilege knowing her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs outstanding legal assistance."

"I have known Kallen Fong since she was called to the Bar. On a professional level, I have worked with her in the same office, and I am also the mother of one of her clients. I am constantly astounded by how well she prepares for her Court appearances, her amazing recall of facts, her preparation work, her clarity of thinking, and how she advocates for her clients. I have worked for lawyers for almost half a century, and do not recollect ever seeing a lawyer who prepares so meticulously while remaining empathetic and human in her dealings with people.
On a personal level, Kallen is a most remarkable young woman. She has deep convictions which guide her in her life, a gentle soul and a gift for caring. She was with me at one of the darkest moments of my life and, had she not been there, I do not think I would have found the strength to face what had to be dealt with. She is truly special and makes the world a better place for all whose lives she touches."
"I had the privilege of getting acquainted with Kallen Fong in the fall of 2006 when a parishioner of mine was in desperate need of an attorney to represent him in Vancouver on a personal matter. Ms. Fong agreed to represent him out of the goodness of her heart, even though she knew he had no financial means to pay.
Over the next few months, I corresponded with Ms. Fong many times via email and telephone and finally at a court appearance. I realized quickly that she was going beyond my expectations to help this man in his predicament. She sacrificed both her time and resources to help a person in need find justice and compassion. I believe Ms. Fong practices law with the highest of integrity and a passion to see justice done for her clients. She is in my estimation, an honor to her profession as an attorney of law."
