  • James J. Sexton

    I have worked on a number of cases with Ms. Yellen as opposing counsel. She is a tough litigator and impressive negotiator with a courtroom presence and signature style that has earned her the respect of judges and her fellow attorneys. She demonstrates a balance of professionalism and passionate advocacy that is all too rare among divorce lawyers. Although her sharp wit and quick jabs have, in more than one trial, raised my blood pressure, I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking a smart, skilled, experienced and ethical attorney in a family law matter.
