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.

Efficient and friendly
Cynthia helped us on very short notice and got the job done very much to our satisfaction. She and her office are professional and friendly and I would only use her for my family needs. She knows the law and has great experience.

Skilled, competent, efficient
I have known Cynthia for six years. I moved my firm into the same office building in 2010 and observed the operations of her staff. In 2011, I retained her to represent my interests in a divorce. She did an excellent job dealing with a very difficult opposing counsel and party. She serves her clients well.

Divorce Attorney
I hired Cynthia for my divorce. She helped me sort through the issues so I can choose my battles instead of fighting on all the issues, which would make it a very expensive war. Emotions make it hard to see everything clearly so it was important that the lawyer can show you outside of yourself.

Retain this attorney
I retained Ms. Cho for the creation of my Living Trust. She was always available to answer my questions and explain the parts of my trust I didn't understand so I would be assured that my wishes would be followed once I needed my trust, my will, and my Advance health care directive. Although I am not married, I hope I will never need to retain her for a divorce, but I do intend to use her for my prenup if I ever do get married.

Very patient and honest
My friends and I agreed that Cynthia not only a good lawyer but a great one. I was very emotional at the time and I keep changing my decisions. At one point I was ready to give up. But Cynthia gave me a sound advice about finances and treated me like her sister. I highly recommend her and I thank her and her staff for being patient with me.
