Ms. Navarrete helped me win my case a few years ago. She listened to me, answered all my questions and concerns in depth and never made me feel like I was a bother. She fought hard for me and helped me win my case. Without her help I would have been at a dead end and still struggling. She is kind, truly cares about people, is an incredible person and attorney. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a great lawyer. Thank you for all you did to help me.

Despite family law not necessarily being her niche field of expertise, Yolanda took on my child custody case. I had to leave the state just days after meeting with her due to military relocation. Other lawyers told me it would be just about impossible to resolve the case if I was in the military and out of the state. Yolanda agreed to be my advocate in the state and fight for my right to gain custody/visitation with my child. I paid my initial retainer and she quickly set me up with the proper documentation to begin the process. Even though she is busy, either her or her staff were always available to ask questions or follow up with. She dealt with the defendant in the case directly, as well as her representation. When the case went to court the judge decided not to hear it and and sent the lawyers out to agree on terms. We could not agree on custody/parenting terms in 8 years so why would that day in court be any different? When we could not come to a mutual agreement, the case was dismissed by the court. I was devastated and it seemed like every door was being slammed in my face. Yolanda did not give up. She re-submitted the motion to the court the eventual resolution was legal joint custody of my son.
I could not have done it without her help. This case took over a year to resolve. She submitted more than one motion to the court and spent countless hours over the course of the year. Yolanda made me a promise to see it through when she first took the case, and that's exactly what she did. Although she could have easily done so, she never charged me a dime more than the initial retainer we agreed to. Other lawyers have charged me $75-150 for an initial consultation just to tell me there is nothing they can do! Yolanda showed a genuine interest in helping me, and that's exactly what she did. I owe her a sincere debt of gratitude and appreciate her for not being like a lot of the other greedy money-hungry attorneys out there. Yolanda and her staff could not be more honest and caring. Thanks again for all of your help.

Even though she wasn't able to help since my case wasn't in her type of category and field, she helped me by referring me to on of her colleagues and never dismissed me nor my questions. Thank you SOOO much and you are the most helpful attorney I ever came across.
