Who We Are

Message from Firm Founder and Managing Attorney, Ji Y. Park

As a product of divorce, I identify with how a family is impacted by divorce and the myriad of issues that come with it — custody, alimony, child support, property division, and so forth. I started this law firm with the goal of being a tireless, fearless and caring advocate for people’s unique family law problems and struggles.

I believe that, aside from mastery of the law, what sets a truly great lawyer apart is devotion to her clients’ best interests and scrupulous attention to a client’s individual needs and goals. After all, every family law matter, like every family, is unique.

At Park Family Law, we provide our clients with the highest quality legal representation by working harder, preparing more, and obtaining results that best serve our clients’ needs. Whether it is through mediation or litigation, we are fully equipped to deliver optimal results and help empower you to take control of your situation.
