  • Hillary Johns

    Mr. Yarbrough is a very thoughtful, intelligent, and clearly hard-working lawyer who gives precise, timely answers to Avvo askers. I've read several of his Avvo answers and peer endorsements and am convinced that he's a high class lawyer (the kind of which I'm always happy to meet). I'm excited about reading more of his answers and referring cases to him in the future and will do so without hesitation.
