Very approachable and friendly attorney
Cliff Young is very approachable and confident for what he is doing about my case. I am from China and he treats me very very friendly like we know each other for very long time. He knows his role being good attorney and what is best way to help my case. Helping me is more priority than anything else in his mind. Each step of his handling my case is to help me to get what i deserve to get. Zhou (joe) I very highly recommend him as your attorney if you have case.

very approachable and friendly attorney
Cliff Young is very responsible and approachable attorney, my case is his priority regardless. First conversation i had with him, he is different than 4 my previous attorneys, when I drove to Nevada to see him, I felt it was ever better, he is family type individual. He is very confident and knowledgable about what he is going to do and most important thing is his integrity. in my personal experience, he is way above average. You will find what i mean after you talk to him.

Thank you Clifton Young, Esq.!
Our situation was quite unique and unexpected and having to find a lawyer last minute is never a great idea. We were fortunate to find Mr. Clifton Young, the morning before the first hearing. Having seen great reviews I sought an opinion from him in regards to our case. Mr. Young was able to gather information regarding the case in a quick manner, review fees with me without hassle, and provide me representation the same day. Since then, our case has moved forward positively. Mr. Clifton Young has been very reliable and upfront. He has communicated with us frequently, kept up on the case, and represented us aggressively. Mr. Clifton Young is an excellent trustworthy attorney. We can say he truly cares about his clients and will do what he can for the best results. We would definitely recommend Mr. Clifton Young to anyone who is seeking a great lawyer in the Reno | Tahoe Area!

Representation
Do not recommend anyone use this lawyer. He does not seem to care about his clients. He should retire as he seems to have an early medical condition that impairs his ability to remember things that have been said. His office manners are very unorganized. I would not recommend. Learn from my mistake and pick a different attorney.
