When You Need The Best
When I needed legal help with a very stressful and emotional employment discrimination problem, at first I didn't know who to go to, who to trust, then other attorneys recommended Joseph Avrahamy, citing his excellence, integrity and compassion for his clients. They said he's not afraid of difficult cases. Mr. Avrahamy handled my case with remarkable skill, concern, great passion, dedication, and a true belief in me, his client. He understood and recognized how important this case was to me, as it was to him as well. I can't express how grateful I am and will always be for what he accomplished. As stressful as it was, "we" went all the way, through a jury trial, and won in our favor. That meant so much to me, to finally prove, among unbiased peers, that I had been wronged. I have no regrets, and am so happy that I choose Joseph Avrahamy to handle my lawsuit, as it was and still is a most important decision in my life, and impacted my present and future life.

More than a good lawyer Yosi is a good person.
I am not sure that 4000 characters for this response would be enough to explain my case and what Joseph (Yosi) Avrahamy did for me. It was a very long and complicated matter. Yosi represented me in an employment case against a major police department that I worked for. The allegations consisted of harassment, failure to promote, discrimination and retaliation. Fighting my particular law enforcement agency is one of the most difficult battles that one can take on. They don't play fair and will stonewall and lie at every turn to win. My case was no exception. However, Yosi was unphased by all this and stood by me from beginning to end. He believed I had a good case and never wavered in his support of me. The battle was long and I always felt that I was a part of the process. Yosi kept me informed every step of the way, which is huge when you are going through something as stressful as a lawsuit. Many lawyers do not do this. I know because I worked around a group of lawyers before I found myself in the precarious position that I was in. Yosi is the exception (in a good way) not the rule for most lawyers. And finally and most importantly, Yosi never made you feel that money was the most important thing to him in the case. By this I mean, that he actually made you feel that what happened to you mattered while also trying to win your case for you and achieve a satisfactory monetary outcome. In the end, my police department settled out of court with me. Something that they do not do unless they think that they could actually lose and lose big. They are very stubborn that way. It was Yosi's expertise and past victories that made them think twice about trying the case before a jury. I would highly recommend him. He is a great lawyer, but more importantly, he is a great person.

When one finds themselves in need of an attorney, what they really are in need of is good direction. Mr. Avrahamy helped me see that direction very clearly and built a methodical plan of action that never lost track of the bigger picture, which is not being taken advantage of. I am very comfortable giving Joseph Avrahamy my highest recommendation, without reservation, to handle your legal needs.

Avrahamy, a Brave & Dedicated Litigator who Fights for His Clients against the System and its Agents
In May 2010, Mr. Avrahamy won for me a major employment civil lawsuit against Ca Dept. of Corrections. In Dec 2011, along with another attorney, Mr. Avrahamy won the appeal that the State filed on my case. In the 4 most stressful years that my case was ongoing, Joseph has been there for me & supported me as family member do for each other. As my attorney, he made me feel safe, he truly listened to my concerns, & genuinely welcomed my input. He took the time & made an effort to constantly educate himself & have a broad understanding of the nature of my job & my employer (the defendant). Mr. Avrahamy defies every bad stigma lawyers have. He's very respectful of all people. He's truly humble & NEVER arrogant nor dismissive. I, wholeheartedly, recommend retaining the services of Joseph Avrahamy for any civil litigation. For me, no matter what the legal issue at hand is, Joseph will ALWAYS be my first call because I trust him with my life.
