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 the issue. I highly recommend Celia if you ever find yourself needing an attorney.

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 guided me safely through the beginning of my successful music career and for that I will always be grateful.

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.
