  • Neil Kuchinsky

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Yeamans for over 15 years. He spends a great of time with his clients, and lets them know, with great objectivity, exactly where they stand. Other attorneys might just tell their clients what they want to hear, in order to earn a legal fee. He is also a terrific appellate advocate.
