Julie Cho's Story
Julie Cho is the principal attorney of Cho Law Firm, APC. She is an estate planning attorney with over 23 years of legal experience, and has counseled individuals in matters involving estate planning, wills and trusts, and business planning.
After having worked in large law firms in the beginning of her legal career, Julie realized that the best means to provide the personalized service she believed all clients deserved – from large corporations to single parents – was to open her own practice in the city where she herself was raised. While possessing extensive experience in business litigation and business law, Julie has a passion for estate planning and providing peace of mind to families.
The driving force behind Julie’s work is community education and service. She meets this goal by providing educational seminars and consultations within her community on the benefit of trusts, probate avoidance and succession planning. She especially likes to empower the special needs community by advising them on the benefits of a special needs trust and the need to protect government benefits for their loved ones.
Furthermore, Julie is involved in various philanthropic organizations in Orange County. She serves in the Pacific Coast Exchange Club which serves to honor and help local veterans, as well as she works with the Child Abuse Prevention Center helping to strengthen families and prevent child abuse. Furthermore, Julie supports the Free Wheelchair Mission, a humanitarian and faith-based nonprofit that manufactures and delivers cost-efficient wheelchairs to developing countries around the world.
Julie transcends her practice beyond mere document preparation by becoming connected to her clients and their lives. She brings a personalized approach to each client addressing their unique estate planning needs.
She grew up in Irvine, attended UCLA for undergraduate studies, and obtained her law degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign law school. She seeks to be a positive example to her two young children, one of whom (a twelve-year-old!) desires to serve her country as a Navy Fighter Pilot.
