During my time working with her she behaved in an unprofessional matter. I do not recommend her. Her attitude during the hearing was very petty. In addition, she failed to be in contact. Over the years she is the worst attorney I have encountered. Her personality is not caring.

Olia was awful. She never contacted me, she went MIA and never returned ANY phone calls...she had my case for 3 years and did NOTHING! Needless to say, I got NO help and my case just sat there.

Ms Yelner was patient empathetic but most important she aggresively pursued my case. I was repeatedly for several years denied dissability. Olia Yelner never gave up and took it to a judge and won.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Attorney Yelner has excellent personal and professional skills. She is dedicated to the public law work and has been rigorously and successfully representing interests of the economically disadvantaged clients in need of legal representation, refugees and aliens in immigration detention.
