Though I decided to not go forward with Janice (due to her being in a different county than my case) she was very helpful and gave some great advise.
Would surely recommend her to anyone who's looking for a smart, aggressive attorney!

Janice Cho helped me review the paperwork that I had previously filled out for my divorce. I had gotten stuck and couldn't do it all by myself. She explained everything very well. I had made a few mistakes. She corrected them, filled out the right forms, listened very well and accurately to my needs and my concerns. She has a notary in her office who helped me finish all that was required. I found her sympathetic, a terrific listener, very competent and efficient.

Janice completely eased my nervousness about unexpected legal matters. She was informed and experienced in explaining court dynamics I could expect, with a comforting clarity. My consultation with Ms. Cho, gave me the information to proceed confidently in my legal matters. She covered critical issues I could expect in granular detail; everything conveyed with the deft sensitivity to families and all loved ones involved.
Janice Cho has the expertise, professionalism, compassion and integrity that you come to feel when you're represented by someone with your best interests in mind.
