Ideal Legal Group Selected as a California Top Boutique Firm by Daily Journal
As published in Daily Journal, Ideal Legal Group was selected as one of the Top 20 Boutiques in the state of California for their work in international family law, with an emphasis on divorce, custody, and surrogacy law.
As an immigrant, divorcee and mother via surrogacy, Managing Partner Evie Jeang is able to relate to her clients and better understand their needs. “I learned by going through it,” said Jeang, “And I have the cultural awareness to help others in the community.”
In the past year alone, Jeang successfully handled a number of complimented family law cases in several countries including the United States, China, Taiwan, and India. In one case, Jeang assisted with the U.S. divorce of an Indian man who wanted custody of his son in the U.S. In another international matter, the firm assisted a Chinese man in finding an egg donor and surrogate in the U.S. due to China’s strict laws barring single men from using egg donors.
Jeang’s work extends outside of the courtroom as she provides pro bono legal services through her recently launched nonprofit project Raised by a Village, which works with community organizations to provide resources to children whose families are going through divorce.
Ideal Legal Group is hosting a charity event at its Los Angeles location on September 25, 2016 in kicking off its non-profit project, Raised By A Village.
Please join Managing Partner, Evie P. Jeang, as she celebrates the birthday of her two-year-old son, Evan Chen. An extension of Ideal Legal Group, Raised By A Village’s mission is to provide mentorship to children of divorced families, and to ensure that no child experiences a shortage of love, care or joy as a result of divorce. Ideal Legal Group will be calling for donations of child necessities including children’s books, baby diapers, youth backpacks, and Target gift cards to the children at the Emergency Shelter of Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF).
This event is presented by Ideal Legal Group, Raised by a Village Foundation, and Bijou Baby.
