    • I recommend Janice Cho.

    Unfortunately, Janice wasn't the first attorney that I hired to settle my divorce. I came to her after finding out that, unbeknownst to me, my first attorney had ceased to communicate with the other party's attorney and, subsequently, with me. What a contrast! From our very first meeting, Janice made it clear that she was working on my behalf and that she would maintain regular communication with everyone concerned, especially me. Her glowing online reviews hadn't prepared me to the exceedingly positive impression with which I left her office that afternoon.

    After reorganizing, cleaning up, and drafting all the documents that I was supposed to have after more than a year with my previous attorney--Janice was tough and persistent with him, eventually obtaining a copy of my records. Janice then proceeded to contact my ex-wife's attorney, and from then on made sure that the case progressed expediently. In-between, Janice was exceedingly perceptive and effective in helping me spend vacation time with my son as well as figure out compensation arrangements that were both fair and that allowed me to retain a valuable negotiating future position. A year-and-a-month later, I had my divorce agreement signed that is fair and sensitive to my particular needs and that required the minimum preparation costs.

    During our first meeting, Janice told me that she would make sure that I would not have to pay one more cent than necessary, and she time and again showed me that she meant this. However, her concern for my financial well being did not translate to cutting corners or skimpy services. On the contrary, Janice was always on top of everything, almost always ahead of my ex-wife's attorney. Janice always presented the options to me in a balanced and objective manner, allowing me to make up my mind, but not shying away to provide me with her opinion when asked. Her work is the epitome of professionalism delivered in an accessible and approachable way.

    It is for these reasons that I believe Janice destroys all stereotypes commonly associated with attorneys. She cares about her clients, to whom she is professional, patient, clear-minded, and delightful, while remaining logical, efficient, firm, and strategic representing our best interests. I will most definitely return to her for advice related to my divorce or, if necessary, other legal matters.

    • I recommend Janice Cho.

    I had the pleasure of consulting with Janice on my sensitive family law case. The information Janice provided me with was incredibly helpful, strategic and insightful. I have educated myself on case law online over the past several months and Janice added the extra detail that only an experienced lawyer could add (information and insight you simply cannot find online). Janice is also very warm and caring. Her immediate understanding of my case and concern spoke volumes to her commitment to ensuring the very best representation for her clients.
    Thank you Janice for your help! You are amazing.

    I asked Janice for a 1-time consult and she was incredibly helpful, spending more time than I'd asked for and offering part of the time at a discount. She obviously cares to see things done well and people get help within their budget.

    • I recommend Janice Cho.
    • I hired Janice 6-12 months ago.
    • Janice handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Janice is a phenomenal attorney. From the initial consultation, she gave me a thorough assessment of my case and laid out what I should anticipate in filing for divorce. She was well versed in family law and I knew I could rely on her to represent my best interest. No matter how you look at it, divorces are super stressful and draining, but she made the legal aspect as seamlessly as possible. She is everything you could hope for in an attorney: professional, intelligent, and understanding. I highly recommend her as an excellent attorney.

    • I recommend Janice Cho.
    • I hired Janice 1-3 years ago.
    • Janice handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I was needing guidance as I entered my divorce, and fortunately I came across Janice Cho. She was easy to approach, organized in preparing me for our meeting, and a pleasure to work with. I didn't need a lawyer to represent me throughout the divorce, as my former husband and I communicate pretty well. What I needed was clear legal advice, and that's what Janice Cho provided. She listened to my story, asked crucial questions, and helped me make a plan that made sense.
    Janice Cho offers 30 minutes of free consultation, then it's $300 per hour after that. We were able to accomplish what I needed within 1 1/2 hours. Well worth it!

    Janice is wonderful! She was extremely competent as well as caring. Her research and support were first rate. Janice helped us through a very difficult situation.

    Janice is one intense woman, a dynamo determined to do right, with an insistence to Do it right or why do it at all?
    Obviously an advocate for justice, she challenges her clients to come up with the strength to face reality, stick to the facts, and get things done so they can move on with their life. Whether it's guiding clients through the maze of legal litanies or just finding the case law that could turn a decision Janice is commendable in her work ethic, tenacity and compassion. And smart as a whip with a crackerjack staff dedicated to her mission. Thank you to all of them.

    • I do not recommend Janice Cho.

    Lawyer Cho, was not as good as I was expecting it. I am not sure if in my case, she didn't have enough time or she just didn't know how to handle the case. I felt that she didn't give me the security that I needed to leave my case in her hands without getting worried. In fact I have to switch to a different lawyer because she was still billing and we were not moving forward in the case.

      Lawyer Comment:

      A relationship with an attorney is one of trust, communication and cooperation and one that can last for many years. For this reason, clients must find the right attorney for him/her and vice versa. Unfortunately (and understandably), some clients can never be happy, are always anxious and attempt to micromanage the attorney and in turn, begin having unrealistic expectations about the legal process, timeframes and outcomes. In my practice, when this occurs, I immediately inform the client that I am no longer comfortable representing him/her and provide them with an opportunity to find new legal counsel. I also offer my assistance by reaching out to well-respected and competent attorneys who can take on the client. Regrettably, that was what occurred in this case. This was a very lovely and sweet client, but I was not the right attorney for her very particular needs and demands.
