Saved me...
I'll never be able to pay Julia Yoo and Eugene Iredale back. They listened to my story when no one would. When they agreed to represent me I was broken. Over time, I was pleased and satisfied that I had them fight for me. They helped me through the healing process and won a judgement at trial then settled the case for a larger sum. Julia is a civil rights expert and I have the most respect for her.

changed me
I was a seventeen year old kid in trouble goig nowhere. When something bad happened to me, no one cared and no one stood up for me. Julia is the only lawyer who even listened to my story. It's been over seven years since she fought for me the way no one else ever did. Since the time she settle my case, I got my GED, never went back to jail, got enough money to take care of my family and I.
