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.

I had to process a very simple, pure-paperwork divorce and had spoken to many lawyers who gave me wildly different explanations and costs! I found Kelly Chang RIckert on this site, by chance, and although I was unsure about the notion of not working "in person", after my initial phone contact with her I was immediately reassured: and I don't for a second regret having hired her. She is very responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, professional, to the point and her costs are by far the most honest I had met so far. She has never made me feel that any question was "pointless", and was always very quick to respond. I was able to get my divorce completed at lighting speed, just through phone and email and am very very satisfied with her services.

When I found Kelly, I was in a situation with prior council that I felt I couldnt relate to. My whole point in getting representation was to get help in standing up for what felt right for my children, and Kelly did just that, she is fair, caring and compassionate and will be upfront about your legal situation and has a fearless approach to it. I cant say enough good things about her. Priceless! Highly reccomended.
