I am specialized in Criminal Law, Divorce and Family Law, including child custody, visitation, support and real estate and civil litigation.
As a prior Assistant District Attorney in Rockland County, I am experienced in and out of the courtroom. I combine compassion with tough advocacy in everything that I do. I am easy going when “out of court” and truly listen to my clients in attempting achieve their goals.
This style enables me to connect with my clients, efficiently get to the root of the issue in each case and establish realistic goals with the client. I also take the time to explain not only complex legal concepts but also the procedural background so they know what to expect when we step in the courtroom on any given day.
Nothing is more frustrating to a client than lack of communication. I am committed to responding as quickly as possible to you and discussing every aspect of your case with you, thus avoiding confusion and discomfort. I am sensitive to my clients' unique individual needs and I am dedicated to deliver prompt, practical advice. That's why my clients have my cell phone. My law office is based in New City, New York conveniently located across from the County Courthouse. I routinely practice in Rockland, Orange, Westchester and New York counties. Call me if you have a legal problem or even if you would like to have a consult, so you know that if a problem should arise you have an attorney just a phone call away who is ready to fight for you! Call 845-290-2492.

I highly recommend Yvonne Garbett. We have worked together on several occasions. Yvonne's vast knowledge in her areas of practice, coupled with her keen ability to spot the tough issues, make her an outstanding attorney. Whenever we are working together, I feel confident that our outcome will be nothing less than favorable! If Yvonne is handling your matter, you are very fortunate!
