I did not have a serious case, but I can see that Mr.charles is someone who knows what he is doing. He gave me some useful suggestions to deal with my problem without going to court.

Real Estate closing Attorney
My spouse and I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Yow on a closing for a property. At the time we were relocating and had some complex financing dealings. He ensured we had a legal view from multiple prospective per our situation. My spouse has told me " I'm glad to have a respectable and knowledgeable attorney in town". Thank you for making her happy and helping us in our time of purchase

Compassionate, Professional and Committed
When I met Mr. Yow I had been to a couple lawyers already. The first had given me some very bad advice and the other I had just paid a large retainer to and he had done absolutely nothing on my case, not even notify the judge that I had hired him. I was disgusted with the whole legal system and lawyers in general. Mr. Yow was extremely knowledgeable and actually cared what happened to me and my case. He won my case, Got justice for me and renewed my faith in the system. I couldn't be happier with his services and would recommend him to everyone. Don't be fooled, All lawyers are not the same!

Excellent and Confident Lawyer
Having hired Mr Yow on several occasions he has always presented himself professional and caring for not only the task at hand but the human behind the case. I have had legal counsel in the past from other lawyers and believe me when I say l would not trust them no farther than I could throw them. Mr. Yow is a kind man whom character contradicts the stereotypes and jokes that shadows his profession.

I have used Charles several times for legal advice as well as legal services. Charles is honest, trustworthy, respectful, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to my friends.

Firearm Law Expert
Mr. Yow helped me a great deal at a time when I thought I had permanently lost many thousands of dollars in firearms that had wrongfully been seized. Fortunately Mr. Yow did not give up and fought hard for me for me after I had given up and secured return of my belongings and funds from the County. to pay for items that were "lost" in the evidence room. He was my champion and I'll never forget it.
