Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz – Standing Up for the Underdog in Our Complex Legal System

In this episode, Jack talks with California Attorney Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz about the philosophy and core values behind her compassionate approach to representing the underdog in the areas of family law, immigration, and litigation defense.

Legal problems can be one of the toughest and most confusing times in a person’s life. Whether it’s defending yourself as the accused or standing up for yourself when you’ve been wronged, the experience can be overwhelming with possible life-changing outcomes.

Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz is a zealous advocate for the underdog, dedicated to giving voice and the ability to fight hard but fair for what her clients deserve. She prioritizes communication, hard work, and respect for each client so that they always know their options, risks, and plans of action.

As the daughter of Filipino immigrants and an immigrant herself, having arrived in Southern California at the age of 8, Cheryl understands what it means to be a stranger in a strange land. She is also married to a Mexican immigrant, and mother to a Mexican-Filipino son. This unique perspective allows her to approach each case with an unmatched level of compassion and empathy for her clients, who are often new to the legal system or intimidated by the complexity and desperately need her help navigating their way through the process.

Listen in, and you’ll quickly hear the passion Cheryl has for the law and understand why she believes that lawyering is a noble profession as she continuously and consistently brings more dignity to the profession one case at a time.
