| Hired Attorney
I contacted the legal firm last minute and they were by far, the friendliest. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received. Attorney Yelena took on, an extremely difficult case. She worked tirelessly to make sure that the truth was told and presented with utmost care and professionalism. Although we faced challenges, she has stood by and guided me through the entire lengthy process. She gave all the time and attention that was needed to be successful. I would like to thank Attorney Yelena and her team for all the hard work and for handling my case with such expertise, and most importantly, for making the entire process easy!

It's wrong to review Attorneys you have not hired
This Attorney is a victim of an angry questioner that refused to identify themselves. As an attorney, this smacks of falsity. Ms. Gurevich is a fine Attorney that faced the music and has done right by her license. Do not be dissuaded by the one poor review, of a person that didn't identify themselves or hire her.

Very Aggressive and Ego driven
Please be more personable. Your posts are public. She will respond, which is appreciated, but does no substance in her responses and then gets upset when flaws are pointed out, that she could easily work on instead of berating me that she offered a free low-value response. Responding for free gives you leads. Learn to be kind and help others. They will probably be more likely to seek you out effortlessly.

Response from Yelena Gurevich January 30, 2024
Dear Anonymous. Based on your posting, it appears you were never a client, nor had a consultation with my office. Rather, it appears I responded to your post/question on avvo and you did not like/ appreciate my response. It is unfortunate you felt the need to rate me without having any relation with me whatsoever, however, that is the nature of some reviews.

Active State Bar Dicsipline
This attorney is actively in multiple disciplinary proceedings with the state bar for taking advantage of distressed individuals. Do your research prior to selecting any attorney.
Response from Yelena Gurevich January 31, 2022
Dear Anonymous. It is definitely important to research any attorney you intend to hire and find the right fit for you. Please note I agreed to a stipulation with the state bar in 2014 and there are no current disciplinary proceedings against me. If you have consulted with me and I was not able to assist you myself, I hope I was able to provide you a reason for such and that you were able to consult with other attorneys for other legal opinions.
