Soo-young Chang is a trial attorney in the firm's Buffalo office who focuses his practice in the areas of product liability and general litigation. Starting as a prosecutor in Brooklyn, Soo-young led a long-term complex conspiracy investigation that dismantled large narcotics-dealing gangs in a major housing project, a case that was featured on the front page of the New York Times. He then joined a Manhattan law firm and defended major hospitals and the City of New York from high-exposure medical malpractice cases.

In 2006, Soo-young returned to Buffalo, his hometown, bringing with him substantial trial experience. He has represented large companies, airlines, municipalities, school districts, and real estate developers, among others, in various litigation, including product liability, construction-site accidents, personal injury and insurance coverage disputes. He has also represented manufacturers in regulatory matters and has authored and presented on the subject of data security risk. Soo-young has obtained numerous jury verdicts on cases involving multi-million dollar potential verdicts.
