    The practice of law has taken me many geographical places and I've all types of interesting cases.  My firm carefully selects their cases in order to give them the indvidual attention they need.

     Personally, I'm always looking for the balance of life.  It is achieved through time with my family. 

    A few years ago I got involved in ultra marathon running.  I've run 50ks, 50 miles, and a 100 mile ultramarathon.  While running, it lets my mind process thoughts and the physical fitness it brings me makes me a better attorney.

Highly recommended
Attorney Yaghmai has been a breath of fresh air. You hear so many horror stories about attorneys just making money and not really having your case at heart. Never was this the case with Attorney Yaghmai. This is an attorney with a big heart. He had been recommended to me by a very good friend of mine. After she recommended him I actually went on line and read about his background. To sum it up he is true to his calling. The very first day that I met him I was very pleased. He was very personable (very important to me), very knowledgable, and I sensed that he was trustworthy. One of the things that he said that was very important to me in the beginning of the case (this was a DUI case) he stated "this will not be a quick process but in order to get it done properly that it would take time but once done it would be done with no questions asked. And he was true to his word. He was worth every dollar spent and more. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help especially when never having experienced anything like this before. He is very knowledgeable and will keep you informed. When I called or texted him he always responded I never had to wait for a response from him and he is a very honest man. He truly sets a high standard above and beyond the responses of most stories that I hear about attorneys/lawyers today. I highly recommend Attorney G.F. Yahmai

Greg is always well-prepared and puts his clients' interests first without unnecessarily drawing out a lawsuit. He is easy to work with and maintains civility throughout the litigation process. As we are usually opposing counsel, I always look forward to working with him while still maintaining our respective positions.

An attorney that you can trust to protect your best interests.
I would highly recommend Mr. Yaghmai to anyone who is in need of an attorney. Hiring Mr. Yaghmai allowed me the opportunity to focus on getting the treatment I needed for my injuries without having to worry about how to seek reimbursement for my medical expenses and to get the best settlement possible with regard to my property damage. His due diligence in researching all aspects of applicable case law consistently reassured me that he was "in it" for my best interests and situation and not for what he would get out of the case. From the filing of the case to the eventual mediation I felt as if I had a "prize fighter" in my corner that was prepared to go the distance to ensure that I was pleased with the results. I am confident that had it gone to trial he would have continued to relentlessy pursue the case to a conclusion that was to my benefit.
