About Me

Attorney Jessica B. Cha is licensed to practice in California, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Jessica has gained tremendous experience and knowledge as an attorney for the federal government and has been able to use her skills effectively advocating for her family law clients.


Jessica is a passionate litigator, vigorously representing her clients on matters of child custody/visitation, child support, spousal support and division of assets/debts. Having gone through the divorce process herself, Jessica has a unique sensitivity to what her clients are going through.


Jessica’s family law practice also includes representing clients whose children were abducted to and from the United States and another count by their spouse or partner. She has an intimate knowledge of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and has even traveled abroad to advocate in front of foreign judiciaries and officials.


When she is not vigorously representing clients, Jessica enjoys playing with her dogs, and spending time with family and friends.
