I had a DWI and was looking for an experienced, talented attorney in the Rockland County area. Her name came up in the search and there were great reviews about her on Avvo. I immediately setup a consultation and she agreed to it even on a Saturday, which happened to be her Son's birthday. She is really so committed to her profession and I decided to hire her right away.
She kept me well informed right from the beginning on what the repercussions could be and how to be proactive. This is truly amazing, that she has such profound, sound knowledge about the law.
My wife and I were completely torn and I definitely did not want a DWI on my record. Yvonne was able to get me a disposition and reduce the charge to a DWAI which is non criminal and will show just as a violation.
I cannot say, how thankful I am to her, since this could have affected my personal and professional career in a drastic way.
Once again, I thank her from the bottom of my heart and for anyone who needs the best, if at all there is one, I will bet all my money on her.

With being falsely accused and facing 15 years, my life was over. I received a 3 month intense program instead with a second chance at life. She believed in me and her dedication was apparent. My whole outlook on life has changed since. She was compassionate, upfront and tough when she had to be, never accepting the first offer. She made herself available to me outside of the normal 9 to 5, Mon - Fri. She listened and answered all my questions, returned my calls and never made me feel unworthy of her time. She explained things thoroughly,never made false promises, and was always upfront. i feel grateful to have had her as my attorney and for this second chance i now have. i would refer her without hesistation.

My son was arrested for possession of drugs. I called Ms. Garbett on recommend from a friend of mine, who had used her services before. He could have gotten 5 years, but it was changed to a misdemeanor. He's home, and getting help for his problems. Ms. Garbett always returned my calls, and kept me informed. She really did a good job.

After dealing with a few law firms, and getting taken advantage of high billings and cold personalities, I was introduced to Yvonne. I recommend Yvonne now to anyone who is looking for a lawyer. Her professional attitude and commitment through out my case made a things a little easier to deal with. It's nice when you put a call into your lawyer and they actually pick up the phone or call you back in a timely matter.

I was very satisfied with Ms. Garbett. We hired her for my one son and then needed her a year later for my other son. She listened to our concerns as parents and both cases resulted in non criminal dispositions so their records were protected! One was a felony, so we were really happy. Both kids are on the right track - thanks to Ms Garbett-really. If he got a felony - his future would be limited. I would recommend her to my friends and family! I pray that we don't need her again but I have peace of mind that if we do - we have a great attorney in our corner.
