The Project

Florence focused on helping Asian Americans modify their loans, stay foreclosure proceedings, pursue foreclosure scams, and defend against unlawful detainers filed against tenants. Because Florence can speak Cantonese, Florence was responsible for reaching out to the entire Cantonese-speaking region of Southern California.

As a Chinese American who was fortunate enough to become a lawyer, it's my duty to give back by helping those less fortunate.
