Cheryl Kang Prout

Cheryl Kang Prout is an accomplished attorney & mediator and also the Founder of Cordial Family Lawyers, LLP in Costa Mesa, CA.

Cheryl Kang Prout is a meticulous and passionate transactional family lawyer who focuses her practice on premarital agreements and divorce mediation. Cheryl founded her law firm, Cordial Family Lawyers, LLP, with the philosophy to lead and guide clients to reach agreement during the biggest transitions in their family life.

Cheryl started her legal practice as a corporate attorney at Holland & Knight, LLP, an international AmLaw 100 law firm, working on large international business transactions. She has world-class experience negotiating large business deals, making her detailed, business-savvy work a boon for family clients with business interests, high incomes, and large estates. Thereafter, Cheryl worked as the General Counsel of XG Communities, LLC, a telecom start-up company, heading up its legal department.

After several years of working on large business deals, Cheryl felt a calling to return to her passion of psychology. Cheryl has always been passionate about learning how people connect and resolve conflict. This passion led her to become a transactional family lawyer, who helps couples getting married and divorced reach agreement amicably and efficiently.

Cheryl pulls from her psychology training daily in her law practice, helping guide clients reach mutual understanding, whether in the context of a premarital agreement or a divorce. She feels passionate about the cases she works on and feels great fulfillment in helping clients in some of the most stressful times of their life.

Cheryl researched in the field of social psychology while at the University of California Berkeley, where she earned the SWAN Undergraduate Psychology Research Scholarship, the James and Catherine Koshland Family Scholarship and graduated with honors with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctorate from the University of California Hastings College of the Law, where she was the Dean’s Scholarship recipient.

Cheryl also leads an active pro bono practice for clients in need. She was recipient of the Inaugural Pro Bono Advisory Council Volunteer Award at Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
