Our firm was established in 1981 under the name LAW OFFICES OF MICHAEL Y. LO.
Over the past 30 plus years, the firm has served clients large and small in the San Gabriel Valley area, and has earned a reputation as a firm that really take care of its clients.
With Michael’s two sons Jonathan J. Lo and Kelvin J. Lo passed the California state bar in 2016 and 2017, the firm changed its name to LO & LO llp. Even though they have passed the bar not long ago, Jonathan and Kelvin also have many years of experience under their belts working in the firm as law clerks while in law schools. In addition to the three attorneys, the firm also employs two to three assistants and one to several law clerks.
The firm’s practices concentrate in the area of civil and business litigation, bankruptcy, criminal law and elder law; with Kelvin takes care of the transactional and litigation department, Jonathan takes care of the criminal and bankruptcy department, and Michael takes care of the elder law and bankruptcy department.
There are several advantages for a client to hire this firm over the other law firms in the area. First of all, there is no issues as to culture and communication. Attorney Michael Y. Lo is fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, and English. His ability to bridge the culture gap and explain complicated legal issues and procedures into simple terms that clients can understand is well known to clients and much appreciated by clients who have used the firm’s service in the past. As to the two younger attorneys, even though Jonathan and Kelvin were born in the states and English is their native language, Jonathan can speak fluent Mandarin and Kelvin speaks limited Mandarin.
There is also no issue as to continuity of service because of the family nature of this law firm. Some clients, especially elder law clients, are concerned about who will take care of their living trust and their heirs when the firm’s attorney is retired. There is no such issues here in this firm because the next generation of lawyers will still be around when clients or clients’ heirs need legal service.
Our tagline is “You want us on your side.” We believe that when choosing a law firm, you do want us on your side. This is because we believe that our service is comparably better, our communication skill is better and our ultimate goal is to have satisfied client.
