5.0 stars 57 totalReview Anna Yum
Since the very first time I spoke to Anna I knew she was the Lawyer I needed to handle my driving under the influence incident. Having a busy schedule with school and work, I was calm knowing Anna was handling my case. She also made this experience less painful in which I did not have to do any community service. Thank you!
Anna is awesome! She is prompt and does what she says she will. Do your part and she will amaze you. Found Anna online with good reviews and very glad I chose her to be my lawyer. Anna helped me to get rid of charges that would otherwise limit my life and now I am able to live with less worries. Thanks Anna!
Anna’s positive attitude and warm personality made her the obvious choice when choosing legal representation. Due to my military commitments and deployments I was limited in my communications with her, she answered every email and phone call no matter the awkward time difference. Her ability to overcome adversity, and willingness to achieve a higher understanding of me, my case and the events that led up to my situation demonstrated the qualities found in someone who truly cares about her clients. I would have not been able to rebound both professionally and personally without her expertise and resolute actions. Her winning attitude, total devotion to my case and concern for me has truly changed my opinion of lawyers.
I hired Anna as my attorney for a DUI, and she was not only extremely helpful and informative, but she also was sensitive to the shameful and upsetting experience that goes along with being arrested and charged with a DUI. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a strong defense attorney.
In 2015, I was charged with "felony reckless evasion of police" in San Diego. I allegedly evaded police officers on a motorcycle at speeds "well in excess" of 100 mph. I thought my life as I knew it was over, all because of this one mistake. Fortunately for me, it was recommended that I hire Anna Yum. This was one of the best decisions of my life. Not only did she get my charges reduced from felony to misdemeanor, I served no jail time. As an added bonus, her modest fee was merely a fraction of what I was willing to pay for her unparalleled professionalism and concern for me as a client. Thanks to Anna, my life is on the right course again. If you are facing criminal charges in San Diego, you'd be making a huge mistake to consider hiring anyone other than Anna.
I had a consultation with Anna regarding a petition for dismissal for a DUI charge. After explaining the specifics of my situation (i.e., no parole violations, completed and complied with all orders of my parole, paid appropriate fines, never missed court dates), Anna explained to me that we would need to go over my story, write the court a letter explaining why I deserved to have my charge dismissed, etc., etc.
In short, she quoted me for $1000 (Plus the $60.00 processing charge for the petition). I'm happy I didn't take her up on that offer, as I spoke to another office the same day and received a quote for $150, for the same services.
I needed legal representation after a felony and misdemeanor arrest. I was in a state of shock since I had no idea why I was being accused of the crimes and I originally thought the truth would eventually keep me from being convicted. However, I was not going to take the chance of a felony conviction which would result in me losing my job for the last 34 years, along with all of the other dire consequences associated with a felony convinction, so I sought legal representation. I did three consultations and I decided to hire Anna Yum as my lawyer. Anna appeared to be very competent and knowledgeable with how the District Attorney's (DA) office and the City Attorney's (CA) office would pursue the case based off of her past experience working as the deputy district attorney. She reassured me that the case would not be tried as a felony but she also did not guarantee me on her assertion. Her confidence gave me some peace of mind that my case would not be pursued as a felony but I still needed to be aware that a felony charge was still a remote possibility.
Anna showed up at my court date to enter a plea of not guilty and she informed me that she could not obtain the police report from the CA office so no charges were going to be filed on that day. She then explained to me that although I was arrested I still had not been charged by the DA or CA which gave me some temporary relief from my stressed out state-of-mind. She then informed me that she would aggressively seek a copy of the police report from the CA's office once it was received by the CA. Anna's office then checked in with the CA office on a weekly basis on the status of the police report. Anytime my fear of impending doom would get to be overwhelming, I would either contact Anna by telephone or email and she would always return a response within the same day. I never felt at any time that my case was being ignored or neglected by Anna.
After 4 months of uncertainty on my case, Anna contacted me on New Years eve day to inform me that no charges were being filed on my case. What a way to start the New Year with great news!
Anna's aggressiveness with the CA's office probably led to a determination finally being made then sharing the decision with us. I am ecstatic with the result and I'm proud of myself for making the right decision to hire legal counsel and selecting Anna Yum. I hired an experienced, competent, and thorough attorney who not only delivered an outcome in my favor but also always made me feel that my case had her undivided attention.
Anna helped me at an extremely difficult time in my life. I did not know what to do or where to turn as I have never been in trouble with the law. When looking for a lawyer, I wanted to find some I could trust & feel comfortable with. Especially because I did not know what to expect from this experience at all. Anna is professional, kind & really cares about her clients. Anna walked me through the process, legal paperwork & answered any other concerns that I had. My case ended up taking longer than I thought it would, but she was there for me every step of the way. THANK YOU ANNA!!
My experience with Anna Yum has been exceptional during a difficult time. I found myself in an unthinkable situation. Words cannot express the rollercoaster of emotions, I had to go through, with that being said I am incredibly happy and thankful to have Anna guiding me through the legal waters of my case. Anna is my first experience with a lawyer and I can’t see going anywhere else if needed! She’s an amazing lawyer. She’s professional, kind, very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She also sympathizes with your case and talks to you at every step to ease any concerns. Literally, the best possible outcome happened for my case and she was there every step of the way. Anna, I thank you and will be forever grateful. I highly recommend Anna!!
I hired Anna for a case I had in San Diego. During the long drawn out case, Anna always was there anytime day or night. She never once made me feel unimportant. Compared to other cases I've seen Anna Yum defend against , mine was pretty petty, however, she never once made me feel as if it was less important to her. She is smart and knowledgeable. I don't plan on needing a criminal attorney in the future, but if I ever did, I'd go to Anna Yum!!
