I am writing with my highest recommendation for Cecilia Chen’s services, specifically for helping
with a dental practice transition or purchase. In June 2017, I purchased my dental office from the
previous owner for whom I had worked for 2 years prior. Cecilia was extremely knowledgeable about
the entire office transition process and she helped me from the initial letter of intent, to the lease
agreement, and finally to the purchase agreement. She was very responsive to all of my questions and
concerns, and would even email me back around midnight some nights. Cecilia is not afraid to stand up
for her clients, especially with the tricky negotiations that come with buying a dental practice. She had
my best interests in mind the entire time and did not back down until a fair agreement was reached. Her
foresight in the negotiations with the letter of intent helped avoid complications down the road when
the lease agreement was being negotiated. Cecilia also took the time to explain the final documents
page by page, and interpreted the legal jargon so that I fully understood the agreements before signing.
I have been extremely pleased with Cecilia’s services, and I have already recommended her to
several colleagues who are going through the same process. If you are looking for a lawyer who is
knowledgeable, works efficiently, and has your best interests in mind, then I absolutely recommend
Cecilia Chen to be your lawyer!

Cecilia helped me through a very complicated dental practice purchase. I can tell you with 100% certainty that without her guidance I would have gotten myself in a bad situation. Fortunately for me she was on my corner and everything worked out. Highly recommend her if you want someone that will not let the other party take advantage of you.

Ms. Cecilia Chen represented me in my dental practice transaction with utmost professionalism and efficiency throughout the complex process. What I really appreciate of her is her willingness to go extra miles in making most amicable resolution with patience and persuasiveness even in a difficult situation.
Ms. Chen has been diligent in every step of the purchase agreement process and lease termination arrangement till the closing of the escrow.
I have no doubt that she will be an excellent Attorney to represent other dentist colleagues in their practice transition.

Cecilia has been an amazing attorney to work with in my practice purchase. Not only did she do a great job in the legal documents to make sure that I am protected, she went out of her way to negotiate favorable terms for me in the lease. I am very glad that Cecilia always had my back every step of the way. She was easy to work with and always made herself available for my questions. I highly recommend Cecilia as your dental attorney!

Being a first time practice buyer there are numerous obstacles that you encounter. I called several attorneys to represent me and no one was more polite and professional than Cecelia Chen. It gives you peace of mind to be able to contact your attorney after hours or on weekends as your deal is progressing. I highly recommend Cecilia for any practice purchase or sale. Ms. Chen was able to negotiate certain terms of the purchase agreement that would of otherwise been detrimental to my transition. In addition, she will always look out for your interests and is second to none in this business.

I would like to recommend Cecilia Chen, J.D. to you with the highest regard. I retained her to represent me in my recent practice purchase. As a first time buyer, I knew very little regarding buying a practice and knew nothing at all about dental law. Since my husband is a lawyer I thought originally I could use him for legal consult and contract fabrication and negotiation. However, due to his busy work schedule, he could not take on this responsibility, which ultimately proved to be a blessing in disguise. Since the practice is over 35 years old, there were several issues with the office that required the expertise of a dental attorney. Especially during the purchase agreement negotiations, Cecilia was incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. No sentence in the entire contract went unexamined by her. Whenever the seller challenged an item, she would consult with me and support my decision with full dedication. Because of her, I felt I had a voice that could communicate with the seller in an educated and powerful manner.
Adding to the complexity of this transaction was the fact that the seller had requested employment as an associate at the office. Cecilia was instrumental in protecting my rights as the new owner in the associate agreement with the seller.
In closing, I would like to add that Cecilia is 100% devoted to her clients. On a personal level, she is very friendly, approachable, and an excellent listener. With business matters, she is professional, serious, and committed to defending the best interest of her client.
Her counsel proved invaluable to me as she walked me through this process. I highly recommend her to represent you. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot more highly recommend Attorney Cecilia Chen to my fellow colleagues. She combines great legal skills and passion for her job. She worked beyond my wildest expectations frequently after hours, to secure the best deal possible for both buying my Dental practice and lease negotiations.

I was in a bind and needed the purchase agreement from the buying doctor to be corrected and finalized in just 2 days. Fortunately, I hired Ms. Chen and she saved the day with her prompt and accurate attention. The sale went through in an unbelievably smooth fashion. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!!
