Tenant Eviction
Attorney Gregory and her staff are experienced, thorough and conscientious. They helped me survive a difficult tenant eviction. They were quick to update me and explain the the process. I wholeheartedly endorse Attorney Gregory's firm.

Amazing lawyer that goes above and beyond!
Attorney Yona Gregory was appointed as financial conservator of my step mother. Given the circumstances of my step mothers situation it is my opinion it would be a difficult case for any attorney. Not only did Yona maintain my step mothers best interests at all times she was always very professional, courteous and kind. With that being said I also retained Yona to handle my step mothers estate upon her passing. She continues to have a very dedicated work ethic. If anything arises in the future I would not hesitate to seek her services again.

Honest and Excellent Lawyer
Excellent and Honest lawyer. I spoke to Atty Gregory regarding a landlord tenant issue. She gave me very good advice even without charging money and told clearly about the law. She spoke to me for 20 minutes and told me why I dont need a lawyer in this situation. Great lawyer. If I have any issue next time I will definitely go ahead with her.

Humanitarian
Yona represents landlords who rent homes to families with children with disabilities that have preexisting health and safety hazards including heavy presence of mold, exposed live wiring, non-working smoke detectors and no combustion air ventilation for the furnace. If you are a irresponsible landlord then Yona is the perfect attorney for you!

Great Attorney!
I would highly recommend Yona, she was very thorough when she handled our unique closing and her staff was excellent to work with. She was also the first person we called to handled our other personal affairs after the closing.

Yona came highly recommended, so I hired her for my most recent closing. I was very pleased with how smooth the process went. She will definitely be representing me for future real estate purchases or evictions. She took the time to explain how to better screen tenants and start evictions timely. Thank you Yona.

Highly Recommended. Hired her twice.
I have retained Attorney Gregory a couple times. Initially to do a closing on a house. Yona and her team were comprehensive and kept me informed the entire time. I subsequently hired her again to negotiate a commercial lease. She was not only very patient and extremely thorough, but she covered things that I would have never thought of. Totally worth it and highly recommended.

Yona is great!
Yona got a binding judgment for my non-paying tenant to leave the property within a few weeks. This was not a typical tenant and she handled the tenant's antics with professionalism and calm to get the job done. Very difficult situation, very successful result.

Expedited service
I retained Yona's services to help with the eviction of a tenant. She was very patient with me, and answered any questions and concerns I had about the process since it was my first time dealing with such an issue. She made it a very fast and easy process, and I cannot thank her enough for assisting me with this matter. I highly recommend her, and while I hope to never end up having to go through an eviction again, she would be the first person I would call if I ever have to.

courteous, responsive, and exemplary integrity
Retained Yona to assist with expediting an issue through the Court System. After a week of research and discussions with her peers Yona informed me that CT has no practical mechanism to accelerate closure; this matter would resolve itself favorably without legal representation. Yona provided advise and suggested changing the arrangement to pay only for a consultation fee-- not full legal representation. I've used several lawyers over the years for business matters and believe this is the most client oriented representation I've ever received. After feeling abused by the system it's comforting to know there is an attorney who has your best interests at heart.

Atty Yona Gregory is everything you can ask for in helping your LEGAL situation. No matter what time of the day, Atty Gregory keep you inform of the latest progress of the case. She handles your case no matter how difficult it is. She is amazing, beautiful and God bless her.

I gave Yona a very difficult job and she accepted it and did a terrific job!
I am writing this review as I want every one to know Attorney Gregory's office is up to the challenge on whatever assignment you have for her. I had a very difficult eviction case because of unsuccessful communication with the tenant. Yona handled the tenant with patience and understanding while protecting my interests. With her emotions aside, she handled the entire process with professionalism, effectiveness, and compassion for the tenant. A rare mix today in the legal profession! I was also working on a budget. Yona took my case with a reasonable retainer and did what she needed to do with no unsubstantiated charges. Reasonably priced and competent............that's what I look for in my attorney, and you should too!

An "Above and Beyond" Attorney
Yona Gregory and her associates continue to be an excellent source for advice and service. They go "above and beyond" what ever my expectations are concerning the matter at hand. I receive quick responses to all matters of business be it legal advice or using the office for legal actions. I am an assistant to a landlord and this is my first time dealing with tenant issues. Yona and her associates have always made me feel comfortable when asking questions. They provide information/advice, direct me to documents for help, and respond promptly. Thank you so much!!

Yona is one of the best!!!!
My case could be easy and simple sale case if .... But it became the eviction plus re-work rent-settle sale deal, much more than I expected. I relocated to MD while accepting a job, tried to sell my rental properties in CT and my tenant did pay rent on time until the last minute to give me trouble (non-payment so that I needed to start the eviction process to make sure the tenant did not overhold). And the previous sale-close real estate attorney was single minded and kept asking my presenting myself in person for singature in CT within next 3 hours, too busy to pick up my phone calls, etc to the point the buyer finally complained to me directly - when was the close date? I immediately moved the case to Yona. She took only 6 hours from accepting a new sale-close case to email me all the sale doc for my signatures. All became under control and moved much more smoothly and in time matter. More, she helped me with the eviction process on the same property - very prompt, answered my question right to the point, lay out the time table and fees, provide the vedios & instructions to educate me well. I felt she covered everything and all what I need to do was just sit back. And her fees were very reasonable. Her service covers all cities and towns in CT. I gave her name to my wonderful realtor and am going to call her again when I am ready to sell another rental property in CT. Yona is one of the best!!!!

Recommendation for Yona Gregory
Yona has represented us for all of our tenant evection cases. She and her team have done an excellent job of keeping us informed, moving cases along and ultimately securing evictions. We highly recommend her for tenant evictions.

Real Estate / Eviction Attorney
I have about 90 rental properties. I use Yona Gregory for tenant issues when they come up and evictions. I have been doing this for many years. Never have I had the pleasure of using a firm with the knowledge, integrity and responsiveness of Yona Gregory and her staff. I cannot say enough positive things about Yona and her firm. Even when I needed an Attorney recommendation from Yona for an attorney in another area of law, the recommendations were equally impressive. Also the rates are reasonable and you get a flat price in most situations.

Extremely satisfied
Yona Gregory has been our attorney for nearly a decade, since I learned of her through the many high recommendations from fellow Realtors. I in turn have recommended her to many friends and clients and have always gotten positive feedback. Stacey, her paralegal, is always helpful and responsive, and Yona is extremely knowledgeable. I absolutely trust her to be honest. Her fees are very reasonable, and her advice is based on her clients' finances rather than her own. I will continue to recommend her to family, friends and clients.

Prompt Fair and Efficient
We needed an eviction and Yona handled the process in a prompt professional manner. She was totally upfront with the process and cost. We again contacted her for a document review and opinion. I will use her services again.
