About Me

Cynthia Cho is the founder of the CC Law Group, APC and its principal attorney.


Cynthia has built her reputation as a highly successful attorney by being not only an excellent lawyer, but also a hands-on and compassionate advocate for her clients. She does not confine herself to consultations and conference room strategies, but is a highly experienced courtroom lawyer as well, championing her clients' cases from start to finish, as she guides them through the often-overwhelming maze of the ever-changing legal process.  As any matter involving family members is emotional and difficult, Cynthia guides her clients to various alternative dispute resolution options as well in resolving matters in private settings such as mediation and private judging actions.


Cynthia has been practicing law in the Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Mateo and San Francisco Counties for over 21 years and is well known and respected within the local legal community. As a local attorney, she is intimately familiar not only with State and local laws, but the inner-workings of the local judicial system, and the legal clerks, lawyers and judges that make the system work.


Cynthia is multi-lingual, and together with her CC Law Group staff can assist you in a variety of languages including: English, Korean, minimal Japanese and minimal Spanish. Cynthia is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley in 1989 and received her Law Degree from the University of San Francisco Law School in 1993.  She was admitted to the California Bar in 1994.  


Since 1994, Cynthia has presented many seminars and speaking engagements to educate and inform the community regarding relevant family law matters and estate and business planning. Cynthia has also written various articles covering various aspects of family and estate planning. She believes that knowledge needs to be shared and contributes to the community in various ways to extend her experiences and expertise.
