I've had to use the services of an atty. several times in my life... it's a necessary evil. This time for a divorce... and when it came to the local atty. I looked up online and met with, I can truly say I felt 'no humanly connection' with that person... at all.
Walking down the sidewalk after that meeting, shaking my head... wondering how I'm going to get through this 'life event'... I inadvertently stopped in front of the Law Office of Barbara Yockey.
I walked in... introduced myself to Barb... she was able to gave me 20 minutes of her time, and then I asked this HUMAN BEING if she would represent me. I never even hesitated for a second... you'll see once YOU talk to her.
She is a wealth of experience and knowledge, a kind and caring individual.... a normal person who loves to ride horses. Always timely with paperwork... always prompt with return phone calls... and always realistic about your legal situation.
My mediation meeting lasted over 7 hours. Not only was she a trooper right down to the very last minute of it... but she had a much deeper insight into my situation than even I did. She came up with an idea that not only benefitted me and my time with my kids greatly... but that hadn't even occurred to me to ask about. Thank you for that, Barb.
My divorce isn't final just yet... but Barb has earned my complete confidence and trust in dealing with the remainder of my case. And if life decides to throw any other curve balls my way... I can tell you without hesitation, she'll be the very first person I consult.
Thank you for all your help, Barb.
I'll be sending a VERY nice fruit basket your way...

Barb has been a close family friend for Years. She dealt with my child support stuff with my parents and grandparents when i was 7-9 years old. I'm now 21, and she recently (November 2014) helped me keep custody of my daughter due to her father trying to take her. Wonderful wonderful person. I highly recommend her

Barbara Yockey is a wonderful person and a wonderful attorney. When a family member attacked the family trust and put me in a position where I could have lost everything Barbara reviewed my case and agreed to represent me. While the opposing attorney ranted and raved and acted like a circus clown Barbara stuck to the facts and acted like a true professional lawyer. In the end Barbara made the situation go away with a simple settlement. I cannot praise Barbara enough for the personal and professional care that I received throughout this horrible event in my life.

Barbara and I met as opposing counsel about 25 years ago and became friends. She is an excellent attorney who knows the law and truly cares about her clients. Barbara is fair, reasonable and a strong advocate. I strongly endorse her.
