Review Anna Yum

  • Gave me my life back.

    Posted by a client

    I was wrongfully convicted and was facing felony charges. I felt like my life and everything I worked for was about to go down the drain at only 25 and I felt helpless. A friend referred me to Anna and I took the chance and called her. It was after business hours but I was frantic to talk to someone who could help me. She called me way after business hours and let me explain my situation to her. Even after talking to her for 10 minutes that was the first time since the incident I actually felt hopeful that someone could reveal the truth. she was my voice when I felt like I didn't have one.
    She was able to get all my charges completely dropped And I didn't even have to go to court. She saved me time and money And kept me from losing my life and any chance of a great future.
    I am forever thankful.

    We hired Anna to represent my son in a felony arrest in Feb 2016. We are from out of state and she helped guide us through all of the challenges. There are several things that stood out to me about Anna during the process...First of all, is her knowledge of the legal system. Her recommendations and guidance were spot on in getting a fair and favorable outcome. I truly believe without her expertise we would not have had a good conclusion. Secondly, is her professionalism. She is truly one of the best in her field and I'm very happy she was "on our side". Lastly, is compassion. Anna truly cares about her clients. She spent many hours checking on us, explaining what to expect, next steps and pointing us in the right directions. It made all the difference in helping us get through one of the most challenging times of our lives. Thanks Anna - we could never thank you enough!!!

    Since the very first time I spoke to Anna I knew she was the Lawyer I needed to handle my driving under the influence incident. Having a busy schedule with school and work, I was calm knowing Anna was handling my case. She also made this experience less painful in which I did not have to do any community service. Thank you!

    Anna’s positive attitude and warm personality made her the obvious choice when choosing legal representation. Due to my military commitments and deployments I was limited in my communications with her, she answered every email and phone call no matter the awkward time difference. Her ability to overcome adversity, and willingness to achieve a higher understanding of me, my case and the events that led up to my situation demonstrated the qualities found in someone who truly cares about her clients. I would have not been able to rebound both professionally and personally without her expertise and resolute actions. Her winning attitude, total devotion to my case and concern for me has truly changed my opinion of lawyers.

  • Extremely Helpful and Empathetic

    I hired Anna as my attorney for a DUI, and she was not only extremely helpful and informative, but she also was sensitive to the shameful and upsetting experience that goes along with being arrested and charged with a DUI. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a strong defense attorney.

    In 2015, I was charged with "felony reckless evasion of police" in San Diego. I allegedly evaded police officers on a motorcycle at speeds "well in excess" of 100 mph. I thought my life as I knew it was over, all because of this one mistake. Fortunately for me, it was recommended that I hire Anna Yum. This was one of the best decisions of my life. Not only did she get my charges reduced from felony to misdemeanor, I served no jail time. As an added bonus, her modest fee was merely a fraction of what I was willing to pay for her unparalleled professionalism and concern for me as a client. Thanks to Anna, my life is on the right course again. If you are facing criminal charges in San Diego, you'd be making a huge mistake to consider hiring anyone other than Anna.

  • Disappointing Consult

    2.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I had a consultation with Anna regarding a petition for dismissal for a DUI charge. After explaining the specifics of my situation (i.e., no parole violations, completed and complied with all orders of my parole, paid appropriate fines, never missed court dates), Anna explained to me that we would need to go over my story, write the court a letter explaining why I deserved to have my charge dismissed, etc., etc.
    In short, she quoted me for $1000 (Plus the $60.00 processing charge for the petition). I'm happy I didn't take her up on that offer, as I spoke to another office the same day and received a quote for $150, for the same services.

    I needed legal representation after a felony and misdemeanor arrest. I was in a state of shock since I had no idea why I was being accused of the crimes and I originally thought the truth would eventually keep me from being convicted. However, I was not going to take the chance of a felony conviction which would result in me losing my job for the last 34 years, along with all of the other dire consequences associated with a felony convinction, so I sought legal representation. I did three consultations and I decided to hire Anna Yum as my lawyer. Anna appeared to be very competent and knowledgeable with how the District Attorney's (DA) office and the City Attorney's (CA) office would pursue the case based off of her past experience working as the deputy district attorney. She reassured me that the case would not be tried as a felony but she also did not guarantee me on her assertion. Her confidence gave me some peace of mind that my case would not be pursued as a felony but I still needed to be aware that a felony charge was still a remote possibility.

    Anna showed up at my court date to enter a plea of not guilty and she informed me that she could not obtain the police report from the CA office so no charges were going to be filed on that day. She then explained to me that although I was arrested I still had not been charged by the DA or CA which gave me some temporary relief from my stressed out state-of-mind. She then informed me that she would aggressively seek a copy of the police report from the CA's office once it was received by the CA. Anna's office then checked in with the CA office on a weekly basis on the status of the police report. Anytime my fear of impending doom would get to be overwhelming, I would either contact Anna by telephone or email and she would always return a response within the same day. I never felt at any time that my case was being ignored or neglected by Anna.

    After 4 months of uncertainty on my case, Anna contacted me on New Years eve day to inform me that no charges were being filed on my case. What a way to start the New Year with great news!

    Anna's aggressiveness with the CA's office probably led to a determination finally being made then sharing the decision with us. I am ecstatic with the result and I'm proud of myself for making the right decision to hire legal counsel and selecting Anna Yum. I hired an experienced, competent, and thorough attorney who not only delivered an outcome in my favor but also always made me feel that my case had her undivided attention.

    Anna helped me at an extremely difficult time in my life. I did not know what to do or where to turn as I have never been in trouble with the law. When looking for a lawyer, I wanted to find some I could trust & feel comfortable with. Especially because I did not know what to expect from this experience at all. Anna is professional, kind & really cares about her clients. Anna walked me through the process, legal paperwork & answered any other concerns that I had. My case ended up taking longer than I thought it would, but she was there for me every step of the way. THANK YOU ANNA!!
