Mr. K.K. (California, the United States)

Letter of appreciation.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you in appreciation for your work on our family case.

We initially did not know this case could be brought to justice as we are located in another country under different legal auspices.  Your tenacity to make sure this case was taken through its legal channels was what made the difference.  To bring our decades old case to its legal conclusion can only be described as astonishing and remarkable.  You stuck with this case with us and made sure that the right thing was done.


Thank you for your kind, thorough and timely assistance.  We could not be more delighted with the results your guidance provided.


Kind Regards,

Mr. M.G. (the Midwest, the United States)

When my brother passed away unexpectedly, the U.S. State Dept. suggested I might enlist the aid of an English-speaking Japanese attorney when wrapping up his affairs. Since I would not be travelling to Japan, it was important to find someone I could trust. I reviewed several firms, and decided on Mimosa International Law Office. It proved to be an excellent choice.


Ms. Mizuuchi started with a Skype call, during which she familiarized herself with the situation, advised how she could help, and explained her billing and fees. By the end of the call, I was very much at ease - assured that she would handle the affairs of the estate with efficiency.


Contact was established with my local attorney, who was able to give advice regarding laws in my home state. I was kept very well informed via email and Skype, as Ms. Mizuuchi dealt with both banks and creditors. She made sure I understood the technical processes as well as any cultural nuances when settling my brother's accounts. Each matter was resolved very satisfactorily, in the shortest time possible.


It was reassuring to have Ms. Mizuuchi working on my behalf during such a difficult time. I can heartily recommend Mimosa International Law Office.

 Ms.R.L. (Nagano Prefecture, Japan)

It’s impossible to express all the good things about Mimoza International Law Office in just a few short words.

Ms. Mizuuchi took over my divorce from another lawyer a few months into the case.

Among the challenges: divorce between two non-Japanese who were subject to US law; division of real estate property in Japan; and a child going off to university.

She quickly caught up on the facts and handled matters swiftly and with confidence gained from her vast experience. She kept me informed at each step, making sure that I was satisfied with the documents that would be submitted to the mediation court, and although the case was handled in Japanese, she assisted me in English when I didn’t understand the legal documents or terms. She worked tirelessly, often handling e-mails late into the night. In addition to frequent e-mails, we also communicated by Skype, which was convenient and cost effective since I live in Nagano Prefecture.

She is tough but fair; I greatly appreciate that she managed my expectations in a realistic manner so that I could make wise decisions. Her advice was on point, and the final settlement was more than I had anticipated. I have already recommended her services to others, both foreign residents and Japanese, men and women, and will continue to recommend her.
