Jewels Jin is an excellent attorney. I don't know what I would have done without her professional services and expertise. After a car accident that left me in pain and unable to perform at my job, I thought I was just going to have to deal with it on my own. Thankfully, Jewels was able to help me reach a settlement with the insurance company, which has helped me financially and emotionally. She kept me informed throughout the process and was always prompt to return calls and e-mails. If you are looking for an attorney to help you with your case, I highly recommend Jewels Jin in Orange County.

My experience working with Jewels was very positive. Jewels Jin has been an empathetic, professional, honest, family law advocate. She worked tirelessly and got the best results. She stayed in touch and on point, and fought to put children first. She expedited her work on her client's behalf and I will always be thankful for her help.

Ms. Jin was a great asset and advocate for a difficult and emotionally charged family law case. First, her initial consultation was provided at no charge. She laid out the various avenues and potential obstacles of each. She was very straight forward about her fees, and the range of hours involved, based on several different factors. She was aggressive as I asked her to be, but calmed me down several times throughout three months of hearings. She was very savvy with all the other parties to the case, including the judge, family court services, and my ex-spouse. She has been very sensitive to privacy, my children, and current spouse. Altogether, she made a very slow and patience-testing process through the courts, bearable. Moreover, she helped shoulder the burden of stress that accompany most family law matters that cannot be settled outside of court.

Jewels is an amazing attorney. She was very sensitive to my personal situation and gave me great guidance. She kept me well informed and did everything in a timely manner. She is very friendly and easy to talk to. She was able to be the voice that I needed before the judge. If you are looking for a great attorney who is very personable she is definitely the woman for the job. I would recommend everyone to come to Jewels with your family law case. Jewels you are THE BEST!!!

Jewels provided service that was worth thousands more then what I was able to afford as a graduate student starting off my career. From the very beginning and throughout my case Jewels was responsive and helpful. I was able to meet with her, present information face to face and on the phone, and receive direction on the what I needed to do. I have found Jewels to be approachable, knowledgeable, and dedicated. She is truly a professional who demonstrates excellence in and outside of the courtroom. Jewels has followed up with me on my case to help me be mindful of required time frames and understand the procedures and protocol. Even a colleague who was present was amazed by the quality of services that Jewels was providing me. This colleague was far more impressed with Jewels in a few hours then she was by her own lawyers in a few months. My colleague was so impressed that she asked for Jewels contact information for herself.
I finally made the decision to stand up for myself and not allow a former friend to continue to take advantage of me. My case involved fighting for a housing deposit that was 12 months overdue. A former friend was taking advantage of her professional status, knowledge of the legal system, and financial resources to attempt to not return money to me. I navigated the small claims system and filed a small claims. I won part of the case and the judge granted a judgment to be paid to me. However, my former friend attempted to threaten to file a false lawsuit against me if I didn't drop the case. Then she filed an appeal to the judgment made. I was at a disadvantage financially and also because she was in the legal field so she had connections and a thorough knowledge of how the legal system works. This is when I sought out a lawyer to assist me with the small claims appeal process.
I found Jewels who was supportive and cared about how I was clearly being taking advantage of after lending a hand to my former friend when she was in danger and needed a friend. Out of the four lawyers I received referrals for, I was most comfortable with Jewels because of her ability to explain the process, availability, and how approachable she is. It was so exhausting to try to represent myself because of the demands in my life in regards to education and career. And I understood that it was not wise to walk into an arena that I had not thoroughly studied and had experience in without professional support and direction. I definitely would recommend Jewels because she was patient, professional, and demonstrated a strong grasp of navigating the legal system.
I was impressed by the direction she provided on the key points I need to make sure I voice to support my case and her ability to be direct, respectful, and appropriately persistent. When you have to go to court there are so many decisions to be made and it is helpful to have an intelligent and well connected lawyer like Jewels. or example, which forms to file, the language used, and what part of your case to focus on. I ask a lot of questions and I was very grateful that she was open to my questions. Jewels explained the pros and cons of the decisions I could make like when my former friend tried to settle for less than half of what she owed me. AND I AM VERY HAPPY THAT WE WON MY CASE!!!!
This experience that was such a drag and took so much time initially ended up being well worth the battle to stand up for myself with Jewels representing me. Even when I was completely done, Jewels remained on top of things and followed up with me for documents that needed to be filed. All in all it was a great experience working with Jewels!

This journey that I was on had me going a bit out of my mind. When I first contacted Jewels she immediately told me what needed to be done and how. Jewels was supportive, kind, caring and very generous in her efforts to complete the paperwork that needed to be done instantly.
To understand this better, Jewels had helped me with my first and last divorce. I am/was a domestic violence victim and she understood my needs, my wants and my concerns. I have two beautiful boys whom I love very much, and I wanted nothing more than for them to be with me always.
I'd like to point out that Jewels was thorough on her work. She new that I was low income and had given me a reasonable rate which was worth it! Jewels had everything prepared on time mostly 95% of the time. I mean lets be honest, she is a lawyer who was not only working hard for me but for other low income clients as well.
Jewels had taken full note into my needs and wants. She took notes on everything I said and needed such as, child support, visitation rights for my ex, and joint custody. She told me how and taught me how to save information for court in case it needed to be used against my opposer.
Jewels had fought for me, she stood up for me in court, even though my opposer never showed. She was prepared, honest, and willing to admit any mistakes at any time and correct then that day or the next.
In the end I ended up getting everything I wanted thanks to Jewels and her speedy and efficient work! I got joint custody or 90% sole custody, child support, and the visitation times I wanted for my ex.
Thank you Jewels!!
