Experienced and Aggressive Family Law

Law Office of James Chau, P.C.

Assisting the People of San Jose, California, with their Divorce and Family Law Needs Since 2008.

Marital conflict is bound to happen. Whenever two people are in a marriage, disagreements will eventually arise. What is the difference between normal conflict and a situation that leads to divorce?


Every couple can withstand different amounts of conflict. However, when the situation becomes so painful, so frequent, and so toxic that either party can’t see the marriage continuing, then that marriage is in crisis.

When all your best efforts have been exhausted, it is time to find the attorney who is right for you.

Dedicated and Experienced Family Law Representation

Mr. Chau understands his client's circumstances and needs. He applies his knowledge, experience, and creativity to obtain results that meet his client's short and long-term objectives. Recognizing his practice's personal and often emotional nature, James is responsive and attentive and works with his clients both in-person and virtually.


Since no two families are alike, James takes a personalized approach to each matter. While it is preferable to negotiate a resolution, there are times when negotiation is not enough. James is a skilled litigator who will aggressively advocate and litigate on behalf of his clients.

"I am so lucky to have met James. He made the whole divorce process so quick and easy. I tried for 2 years with no luck, all the paperwork and the filing, I was in over my head. Thankfully I found James. He made everything so easy and was there in court with me as well. And a big plus is he is so fair with his price. I was shocked! Thank you, James!"
