    I had a consult with Janice Cho regarding my case. I am in the process of having a family court matter moved from another county to Contra Costa. Janice gave me clear advice on my current strategy to have the case moved and how to proceed if successful. If all goes well with the change of venue I would hire Janice Cho in a heartbeat.

    I feel confident with Janice on my side. She is good at what she does, and you can tell she's a people person by the way she just goes the extra mile. She has always been warm and generous with her assistance - more like a friend who happens to practice law. Janice actually talks with you and tries to understand your concerns, instead of talking at you and giving orders, which really puts you at ease.

    I hired Janice to represent me on my divorce case. Hiring her was the best choice I could have made, she was extremely caring and always look out for my best interests in every instances. It was also her recommendations for us to hire a Retired Judge to go through Mediation instead of fighting in the court which would definitely incur much higher attorney fees. Janice was very well prepared for the mediation sessions and our case was eventually settled in only 2 sessions. I really appreciate how Janice was not only looking out for all my best interests, but also finding the most efficient and economical ways for me to complete the process.
    I would highly recommend Janice to represent anyone who has a need in Family Law. She is knowledgeable, always provide professional advises, and quick to response to any questions I have either by emails or phone calls. She is also very reasonable and fair in her charges and billings, and all transactions are clearly explained and listed on the monthly statements.
    I am extremely please to have found Janice to help me on my case.

  • Janice is AWESOME

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Bismarck

    I was served with divorce papers in July and really had no idea what to do. I work all the time so I didn't fill any paperwork out and waited until the last minute to make a consultation appointment to see a lawyer (Janice Cho) and see what I needed to do.

    I was referred to Janice by a co-worker who went through a difficult divorce. She was beyond happy and satisfied with the services Janice provided.

    I had about two days to file when I finally made time to book a consultation. I went to my appointment freaked out not knowing what to do or expect and Janice was so professional and knowledgeable (not to mention cool and warm and funny) that I immediately knew I was in good hands.

    She took less than an hour to fill out ALL of my paperwork, faxed it over so that I did not have to go to court and file it in person. She even prepared the paperwork I needed next for my disclosure of assets. All while talking to me and putting me at ease.

    I will go back and hire her to review all of my documents before submitting. I may not be as eloquent with my words as I would like to be but I can assure you that you will not be dissatisfied with the quality of service Janice will provide.

    THANK YOU JANICE YOU ROCK

  • Bad Advice Given by Someone I Trusted

    1.0 star

    Posted by Danielle

    I worked with Janice on my Child Custody case since 2012. Unfortunately, after years of a trustworthy relationship, Janice provided me with terrible legal advice on more than one occasion. Knowing how physically, emotionally and financially I was drained, Janice explained to me that I could drop my motion since I was the moving party. When I left a letter for the Judge in my case, stating I wished to drop my motion (this letter was drafted by Janice), the Court Clerk called me to inform me that I would need the other party to agree to move the hearing from the calendar. I told Janice the news and she advised me to not show up to Mediation or my hearing, again stating because I was the moving party, the court could not move forward with my motion. Taking her advise, I did not show up to Mediation, which cost me greatly in court. Not only was I fined, the other party was granted everything they asked for, the Judge also informed me that once a party has responded to a motion, it is impossible to just drop it. This is a law I would expect Janice to be fully aware of. Even more disappointing, Janice did not take responsibility or apologize for any of the poor advice she gave me after I brought this to her attention. I will be formally filing a complaint against her with the California Bar Association.

    Janice Cho was recommended to me by a friend. I reached out to her because I needed consultation to work through the details of my draft judgement (for divorce) that was composed by my and my spouse's mediator. I found Janice to be very professional, helpful, and most important, to the point. She quickly and efficiently reviewed my judgement and was able to home in on the exact areas that needed revision. I came away from my consultation appointment with a lot more clarity and understanding than I had when going in. Because of Janice's help, I feel more confident about my judgement, and about the whole dissolution process in general. I am really glad I met with her.

    One final note: Janice was professional, but also extremely personable too. A friendly voice and personality is always much appreciated when going through something so difficult!

  • Highly recommended for Prenuptial Representation

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I worked with Janice in a limited scope capacity as my legal representation for the execution of my prenuptial agreement with my partner. Janice is extremely personable and smart. She was very fast and efficient in reviewing and counseling me regarding our agreement. Janice and I were able to complete the legal counseling process in two thirty minute sessions. Janice and I were able to work quickly, in part because my partner and I did a lot of legwork up front to limit our legal expenses. My partner and I read the Nolo Press Guide to Prenuptial Agreements and invested a lot of time prior to seeking counsel to draft our own agreement; we discussed and aligned on the key points of the document before seeking independent counsel. I strongly recommend working with Janice if you are are seeking representation to execute a prenuptial agreement.

    Janice went above and beyond my expectations. I cannot emphasize my gratitude or appreciation - she truly is a gem in the world of attorneys. You would be lucky to have her represent you. She is generous with her time and advice. I came out of my consultation feeling confident and prepared...and knew that I had found my lawyer.

    Janice was my attorney for my divorce. My divorce proceedings had stalled with another lawyer and Janice got the thing done with a very favorable outcome for me, all the while keep my costs to a minimum. She is extremely knowledgeable of family law and an incredibly smart, hard working attorney. She was super responsive to my questions and I appreciated her ability to guide me through the process, using layman's language. She was mindful of my limited $ and gave me options to keep the cost down. She is well-known and well-respected in the area. I would highly recommend Janice to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, trustworthy, tough, yet personable attorney.
