It’s impossible to express all the good things about Mimoza 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.
