The Genesis of Yang Law Offices

Embarking on a trajectory initially rooted in engineering, Elizabeth pivoted towards law with a desire to understand the legal system rather than becoming an attorney.

Her entry into the legal space was catalyzed by her technical background, guiding clients through the intricacies of intellectual property law. She explains, “After law school, I ventured into intellectual property law, leveraging my technical background to guide clients through patenting processes.”

The turning point, however, was a personal one—her own protracted divorce, an experience that laid the foundation for expanding Yang Law Offices into Family Law.

During her 4-year long divorce battle, Elizabeth learned all about the California family law, including child custody and child support issues, alimony, asset division, and even domestic violence restraining order issues.

Having personally experienced the emotional complexities of divorce and navigated past the legal intricacies of the system, she holds deep empathy and understanding for clients facing similar challenges.

“My personal experience with a prolonged divorce expanded our legal services into Family Law, drawing from firsthand understanding to support clients through similar situations.”
