Incredible Employment Attorney - Will fight for you with grace!
I never thought I would ever have to sue an employer and was very overwhelmed by the process. Sam was strategic and patient. He painted a clear timeline of process so I was prepared. Depositions are VERY stressful. He prepped me and was there every step of the way . He fought hard and I was impressed by his work ethic and professionalism. I highly recommend Sam Yebri for ALL employment or business needs. His passion for law extends beyond mediation and the courtroom as he constantly gives back to the community. Sam is definitely the guy you want on your team.
