"I cannot recommend Julia Cheng highly enough. She first took Roads & Kingdoms on as a client when my co-founder and I literally ran nothing but a single Tumblr. But she treated us like a real company, and in many ways helped us become a real company over the past several years. At every step of our growth I've found her to be hyper-responsive, detail-oriented, and a true ally for a small business trying to establish itself. She's gone toe-to-toe with legal departments from Microsoft to Google, and she did it all while being mindful of our budget. She's a true partner to Roads & Kingdoms, and I'm deeply grateful for that."
--Nathan Thornburgh, CEO, Roads & Kingdoms
"Julia and the CyberlawStudio team are a vital part of our company. We get legal, business, and strategy support from Julia that is better than any of the lawyers I've worked with in the past (and I've worked with some major law firms!). We're able to grow and develop the business because of the support we get from CyberlawStudio!"
--Steve Midgley, Founder & Managing Director, Learning Tapestry
"We began working with Julia as we navigated a merger, new round of capitalization and the expansion of our team at Imperative. She made the process remarkably simple, transparent, economic and efficient. More than anything, Julia made the process enjoyable and collaborative. She felt as more of a core team member than a consultant and showed clearly that her investment in us was longterm - not transactional. Following such a positive experience so far we will be engaging Julia in the future, without a doubt. She gets my highest recommendation!"
--Arthur Woods, Co-Founder, Imperative
"We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the services that Julia Cheng of CyberlawStudio provided to us. She has been far beyond what we could have anticipated or hoped for.
We approached Julia almost five years ago with an innovative idea of creating a Gung Fu instructional app using live action and 3D Motion Capture and to go into partnership with a world renowned Hong Kong Gung Fu family.
Julia turned our idea into reality by working on the contract proposals and the legal registrations. More importantly she guided through the corporate structures and cash flow and financial projections and provided us with contacts and referrals which greatly enhanced our business.
Today Julia is not just our legal advisor, she is also a friend and a mentor."

"In 2004, when I decided to live my dream and set up a non-profit organization, I was extremely fortunate to meet Julia Cheng. I had no idea how to navigate the legal aspects of forming a company, interfacing with the IRS, writing a 990 and creating a variety instruments to protect my non-profit as an organization, a brand and website platform.
Julia knows all the ins and outs non-profit law. One of the things that impressed me the most is that in the process of establishing the Foundation, I didnt realize how much I ldid not know. Before we even sent in our IRS package, Julia helped me crystalize step by step what I really wanted to accomplish and how. With all the hard work done before, the IRS did not refuse my application.
Since 2004, I have relied on Julia for continuous advice and for setting up legal agreements concerning conflict of interest policies, non-disclosure agreements, publishing agreements, research protection, and personal matters.
I highly recommend Julia Cheng to anyone looking for a competent, no-nonsense, savy attorney. I welcome any queries related to the aforementioned services."
--Claudia Abate-Debat, Founder, Foundation for Post Conflict Development
"As a foreign company located in Taiwan, with no offices in the U.S., we are very fortunate to have retained the services of Zara Watkins and Julia Cheng to assist us with enforcing our rights as a creditor in the Borders Chapter 11 bankruptcy. They are very responsive, knowledgeable and cost effective. Not only do they pro-actively provide us with updates about the process, Ms. Watkins was able to think outside-of-the box in terms of reaching out to the other side's counsel and successfully negotiate a settlement of the claim. As a creditor that is relatively smaller than the rest of Borders' creditors, we could not have asked for better representation than that provided by Zara and Julia."
--Jenny Su, Senior Sales Manager, Smart Fortune International Ltd., Taiwan
“Julia has been a tremendous help to my various technology-related projects since 2008. Her expertise in my little startup-focused corner of the business world helps me thwart not-so-obvious legal mistakes. Additionally, her services are cost-effective and timely I recommend her services to every New York-based, early-stage technology entrepreneur.”
--James Cropcho, CTO, Fashism
“Julia brought great insight into the formation, liabilities and pitfalls of the formation of our company. She's got authoritative down and knows the digital space cold. Most instructive was her ability to understand my end goals and speak to how best to reach those goals given different scenarios. I will continue to retain her for my corporate legal needs.”
--Wyndham Chow, Co-Founder, Advisory Board Member, XARM
“I strongly recommend Julia! Having a small start up with varying needs, Julia has been able to advise me on issues large and small, from intern contracts to intellectual property issues to consulting contracts with large multinationals. She also walked me through all the steps of incorporation and helped me register for my trademark. She is super responsive, delivers on time and I always feel I am a VIP client!”
--Julie Meyer, RD, Founder, Eat Well Global
“Julia is a highly motivated, personable and results oriented corporate attorney. We interviewed numerous corporate lawyers for our fashion tech startup and Julia came out on top. She made a potential headache disappear. Highly recommended.”
--Sai Kong, Digital Creative Director & Founder, fashionloyal.com
“Julia has been instrumental to the building of my business. She has been incredibly accessible and thorough in recommendations. It's clear she has her clients best interest in mind and executes with an authority and conviction befitting her position. I recommend working with CyberLawStudio”
