  • Christopher Thomas Lyerla

    I was a prosecutor on several cases with Humberto Yzaguirre as defense counsel. Through all my experiences with him, he was a thorough professional and did his clients a great service. During the one time I had a criminal trial against him, I saw him aggressively defend his client in the courtroom and not let up for a second. These actions pay off for him, as he enjoys a solid reputation among the legal community as one of the best attorneys that someone can turn to when accused of a crime.
