About Virgil

Learn Virgil’s areas of practice.

 "Rebuilding Shattered Lives" is not just a motto; rather, it's the very reason that I keep my doors open.


By limiting my caseload to just a special few on which I myself then can work, I maintain that personal touch so important to a meaningful attorney-client relationship.

And, since travel to an attorney's office is just one more hassle that most people could do without, I travel to my clients for their convenience whenever possible.

Mr Yanta is a very professional attorney
I contacted Virgil Yanta after my family and I were involved in a vehicle accident back in late 2016. The qualities I look for in an attorney are intelligence, professionalism, very knowledgeable, humane, and helpful. Mr. Virgil Yanta possessed each of these qualities. He was very supported and always offered helpful, constructive advice. Mr. Yanta consulted and supported us every step of the way!

The best I have seen
I have used Virgil Yanta for several legal matters one was as simple as getting a old ticket that had turned into a warrant dismissed, And is now currently working on a personal injury matter. His attention to detail is impeccable and the way he works a court room is unmatched. He is very compassionate and an all-around great guy. I will continue to use him every chance I get
