Chisako Fujii

Associate,Daini Tokyo Bar Association

Since her admission to the bar, she has taken on a wide range of civil and domestic cases for ordinary citizens. She also has extensive experience in criminal and juvenile proceedings, having rigourously defended cases involving allegations of serious crimes such as first degree murder, of which her clients claim innocence. She has successfully negotiated and persuaded procsecuters to have suspects released from police detention  pre-indictment, and won bail for defendants in pre-trial detention, on multiple occasions.  She is also experienced in arguing cases at the appellate stage of civil and criminal litigations.

During years in college and law school, Ms. Fujii worked as a volunteer to support juvenile delinquents, and as a legal practitioner she has assisted ex-convicts to rehabilitate and adapt in the society after release from prisons.  Based upon those experiences, she always listens to her clients calmly and carefully, and does her best to address their concerns and requests in finding legal solutions and preparing arguments for legal proceedings for them.

Ms. Fujii is also very keen on taking care of younger generations.  She is a frequent lecturer  of elementary law for college and high school students, and active in the prevention of bullying and abusive behavior in class and at school. She believes in the importance of just being there for children so that they can talk to someone whenever they need to, and provides social networking consultation services for younger generations.
