After comparisons we contacted the Law Office of Kelly Chang. Through email and phone communications, they completed all the work efficiently without us travel to their office. They are experienced and trustworthy. The fee is fair. We got our final judgement in a short period of time that we thought on average would be 6 times longer. We are so glad to get professional help from Kelly Chang!!
When you're looking for an attorney in your family law case, you are in an extremely vulnerable position. I met with several lawyers trying to find the right fit for my custody case and am extremely happy and grateful that I made the right decision of hiring Kelly Chang Rickert.
Kelly was smart, organized, and trustworthy throughout the process. She always advised me honestly about the best way to proceed and I found her to be a completely invaluable ally. She also saved me money by advising me wisely about which courses of action would be too expensive to be worthwhile. The billing for her services was understandable and straightforward, as opposed to many stories that I've heard about other firms.
Kelly handled my case personally and I truly felt that she was on my side. She always came to court prepared, and found time to get in touch immediately whenever I had a question. A lot of attorneys might try to give an overly rosy outlook but Kelly was always realistic about what to expect in court and how best to proceed. I can't imagine having gone through the process with anyone else. My judgment has now been entered and I feel extremely fortunate to have had Kelly in my corner from start to finish.
Kelly Chang is a consummate professional and an exceptional attorney and . Her firm didn't give me any promises or guarantees as to what the outcome would be but they did promise and guarantee they'd give me professional service and that is exactly what was provided to me.
I unhesitantly recommend Kelly Chang Rickert.

Initially I thought I could handle my divorce without the use of a lawyer, but after one year I realize I was wrong when a lawyer from my former spouse contacted me. So I started my research for a lawyer in California from my tent in the desert of Kuwait. This is when I came upon Kelly Chang Rickert and her firm. Kelly took my case and immediately set sail to make my life easier. Kelly and Veronica worked with me in every way possible while handling my case with me being oversees the entire time. I never had to make a physical court appearance and was only committed to two phone calls: conference call with both lawyers and former spouse; conference call with the judge. Overall it was a long journey to get to this point, which is “Happily Divorced”. I highly recommend “The Law Offices of Kelly Chang Rickert” to anyone especially military service members. Kelly and Veronica, “wow” what a team to be recon with. I do feel sorry for other family lawyers. Kelly and Veronica, I thank you for your dedication and professionalism during this entire period and for all you do!!

I hired Kelly to draft a prenup. My wedding was in 6 weeks, yikes. She was in trial, but her assistant set me up with everything I need. As soon as I met with Kelly, the agreement was done in 2 days. We were able to finalize everything. I liked her she didn’t quote different prices based on my assets (a lot of firms charge based on your assets). It’s a set price, with set hours for negotiation and review. She also is very good at explaining things (something lawyers are typically not good at!)

I hired Kelly on my custody case. My ex has never been involved – not at the hospital, never paid a dime of support. After I filed a case with the Department of child support services, he filed for full custody of my son (who is now 5!). I was beyond scared. I called her office crying, and her assistant calmed me down. Her office is the only one that actually made me feel like they cared about me. When I met Kelly, I knew she was the right attorney, because she set forth a strategy and helped me understand in regular people terms how we would proceed. The case went EXACTLY as she explained it would. In the end, I continued to get full custody, and she helped me obtain arrears and establish a child support order going forward. I know that there may be future battles (as she explained, co-parenting is forever), but it’s nice to know I have someone who is knowledgeable and professional on my side.

I found Kelly on this website am very grateful I did. I had a child custody and support case which she and her wonderful assistant Jennifer were able to handle quickly and efficiently with as good as an outcome as I could have hoped. I only met her once and the rest of our correspondence was via email and phone calls. I found it far more efficient than having to take time off work to go to her office and didn't have to deal with snail mail either. Although for her services I would go into her office if need be. She is surprisingly (only because, well...lawyer) warm and helped put me at ease during a time when I was stressed and emotional. If you are unfortunate enough to have to retain a lawyer, go with the best and go with Kelly, she's worth every penny.

Kelly worked on my custody case. She was amazing, friendly, and warm. She helped me through the most difficult time in my life and I couldn't be more grateful to her for all of her hard work. I will definitely recommend her services for family law cases.

I hired Kelly for my complicated divorce case. She was fantastic! I had never gone through this type of situation before so I had many questions and concerns. Kelly and the women at her firm were always there to help me along every step of the way. I highly recommend her services and will refer her to anyone I know going through a divorce.

I had the pleasure of working with Kelly and her firm on a number of occasions when I needed expert commentary regarding divorce and divorce law for a series of television specials I was producing between 2010 and 2013. Kelly is not only a damn good lawyer, she is an intelligent, compassionate, articulate woman and a consummate professional who is able to unravel complex legal situations with astonishing ease. I have referred a number of friends and colleagues to Kelly over the years, and she has always done a stellar job of representing them and fighting for their rights. If I am ever in need of legal services the ONLY person I would consider is Kelly Chang Rickert.
