With over a decade of experience in the collections industry, I serve as the principal attorney for the Jen Law Firm, APC, a business litigation law firm assisting entrepreneurs and small businesses throughout California.

As a business litigator, I work closely with local and regional businesses to help resolve their disputes. My significant litigation and investigative experience, coupled with my years of work in the collections industry, helps me protect businesses both on the front end and the back end.
My clients appreciate that I build a personal relationship with them and am there to help guide them through challenging issues. They know that I'll find the best approach to a problem, and that I enjoy working out the solution. They are confident that I can protect their business.

My areas of expertise include:

• Debt collection/judgment enforcement
• Investigative techniques related to debt collection
• Business entity formation 
• Business agreements and contracts
• Business and commercial litigation

I love the process of tackling unique challenges and using my expertise to make my clients’ lives better. I am rewarded by the peace of mind that I give my clients and the relief that their issues have been resolved. 

Outside of work, I volunteer my legal expertise for my community. I have volunteered for immigration legal clinics, worker’s rights clinics, and pro bono clinics. I also served as a volunteer mediator in the Los Angeles County Superior Court’s CRASH Mediation Program.

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Jerry to chase down a client who owed my business money for years. He is a true professional and knowledgeable without an attitude. Jerry helped me to recuperate majority of the debt...Impressive works!. Highly recommended!

Great for Collections !
Jerry is a great asset to our business. He has helped us collect on past collections that we have given up on. Trust worthy and extremely knowledgeable.

Jerry is a true professional!
Jerry is a true professional who dissected and clarified several ambiguous contracts for me. He took the time to make sure I understood everything, and patiently answered my numerous questions. I have been extremely fortunate to have Jerry on my side. You will not find a more trustworthy authority to serve your legal needs than Jerry Jen.

The turnaround for drafting a Freelance Writers Agreement to protect our small business was quick & professionally detailed.
Our small business is limited on funds, but we need to do our due diligence when it comes to protecting ourselves from company crippling lawsuits. Through word of mouth, we heard Jerry Ja-How Jen was well verse in all matter regarding small business in California. We had Mr. Jen draft a Freelance Writers Agreement. I'm not a person who's easily impressed, nor am I someone who enjoys writing reviews for a service, but I can't see someone of this caliber muddled in a sea of other lawyers. As a small business, we can't afford to wait for things to get done. Mr. Jen turnaround time on the agreement was amazingly quick and the body of work was professionally detailed. I want to see someone with this work ethic and this professionalism succeed in building a small business law firm. Jerry Jen has our company complete trust in future small business dealings.
