Kelly Chang Rickert (formerly Kelly Yi-Yi Chang) is the founder of the Law and Mediation Offices of Kelly Chang, A Professional Law Corporation, a firm dedicated exclusively to Family Law. She has been practicing law since 2000. She has been certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization as a Family Law Specialist, a distinction earned by only approximately 1100 California family law attorneys.
The most important thing she has learned after almost 20 years of handling high conflict divorce cases is that there is no “winning” in divorce. (At least, without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars!) Litigation is rarely affordable for a divided family who must already double their living expenses. In addition, court is slow and painful, and winning one hearing only means having to defend several subsequent hearings. (Very expensive and time-consuming!)
It is the darkest before the sun comes out; and Kelly strives to be that light, navigating her clients out of the darkest point of their lives. Though divorce is difficult, it does not have to be nasty.
She is frequently quoted in the media, and is a legal expert for CBS, ABC, CNN News, KTLA, NBC, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, NPR, Style Network, TV Guide, MTV, the Insider, Extra!, Access Hollywood on Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods, Britney Spears, Christie Brinkley, Madonna, Charlie Sheen, the Kardashians and Brangelina divorce and custody cases.
