About Celia

Learn Celia’s areas of practice.

The Law Office of Celia Cho counsels clients on their business, intellectual property, entertainment, and real estate transactions.

Celia Cho, Esq. was inspired to go to law school after consulting with an attorney about protecting creations of the mind. Having been inspired by intellectual property law, she hung up the phone and decided she would go to law school so she could help others know and protect their rights. During law school, Celia was selected to receive an intellectual property law fellowship and excelled in copyright, trademark, and patent law. She also earned membership to the Trial Advocacy Honors Board after competing in a trial competition.

Today, Celia has experience in both litigation and transactional matters, including clerking for Judge James Di Cesare of the Superior Court of California in the unlimited civil division where she worked on numerous types of cases (e.g., breach of contract, defamation, wrongful termination, harassment, personal injury, and real estate). Additionally, Celia worked on contracts, copyright, and trademark issues for Reef, a division of VF Corporation. She counsels business owners, entities, and individuals on their business, intellectual property, entertainment, and real estate matters.

Celia is dedicated to animal welfare issues and helping the community. She volunteers for the Humane Society of the United States and theVeterans Legal Services Clinic.

wrongful termination case
I contacted Celia regarding a wrongful termination case I wished to pursue against a former employer. She was extremely knowledgeable of the law, diligent in ensuring she had all of the crucial details surrounding my case, and also displayed great compassion (as this was a very stressful situation for me to deal with). Thanks to Celia's consultation and the excellent advice she gave me, I am no longer dealing with this issue. I highly recommend Celia if you ever find yourself needing an attorney.

Small Business Owner
I recently bought a franchise food business and Celia was really helpful with her legal knowledge during the process. The most important aspect was understanding existing lease terms and extension options. Not only did she go over things in detail before the purchase, she contacted me a few months later to remind me of time sensitive actions that I need to take in order to extend my lease to keep the business running. I will continue to work with Celia for all my business legal affairs.

Highly Recommended Attorney
Celia is fantastic to work with. I found her extremely knowledgable, professional and compassionate in advising me on my case. I felt that she was really on my side, which made a challenging situation much easier to handle. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her services to anyone.

Outstanding work and human being
I met Miss Celia Cho in 2014 when she facilitated and negotiated my first publishing deal with Defend music. Her attention to detail and real passion for her work shines through in everything she does. She has a sharp legal mind and goes beyond due diligence to get the best for her clients. Since then we have done a number of deals together. I could not recommend her any more highly than I do. This woman guilded me safely through the beginning of my successful music career and for that I will always be grateful.

Celia Cho
I hired Celia Cho to help me with my legal matters. I was extremely shocked to find out how diligently she fought for me. Celia definitely put in the extra time to do additional research and talk to the prosecutor outside of court. As a matter of fact, if she hadn't been so proactive, I could have spent some time in jail. The clerk wrote down my court date incorrectly, and in her communications with the prosecutor she found this out and corrected the mistake. From there, Celia was very communicative and thoroughly explained my options and answered all my questions. She was honest and straight-forward which always put me at ease. She was in constant contact with me to inquire about additional facts that might help my case, and she just ran with that information. I couldn't be happier or more impressed with Celia's work ethic and her ability to get the job done.
