Law Is Not A Fair Game, You Deserve A Lawyer That Cares

Lily Kao, Founding Partner

Portrait 4Lily’s mission, since she founded Kao Law Firm, is to provide client-centered legal services that address what clients really want. Coming from a family of lawyers and judges, Lily realized very early on that her passion is to build a law firm that works with people and puts people first.

From the first contact with Kao Law Firm, clients can expect zealous advocacy that protects important rights and assets. Just as importantly, clients are also provided with tools and guidance so they can make critical decisions throughout their case.

In every case she handles, Lily takes on many different roles—advisor, advocate, negotiator, counselor at law. She does not rest until she gets the best possible results for every client.

Every attorney may want to provide ethical and responsive representation, but Lily Kao consistently delivers it to each of her clients. She has been trusted to represent clients in all kinds of cases—difficult custody disputes, high net-worth individual divorces, and court order enforcement/modification, etc.
