About me

After being invited to join the Law Review at CalWestern, I graduated Cum Laude and went on to found my own personal injury firm. I have since recovered millions for my clients by developing an aggressive approach towards resolution. My commitment to my clients is to treat their interests as if they were my own.

  • Aaron Bernard Salomon

    Mr. York is an exceptional attorney. I have known him for nearly 15 years and witnessed his litigation skills first hand. Mr. York is aggressive when he needs to be and will not hesitate to take a case to trial. More importantly, he is also able to negotiate top dollar settlements for his clients allowing them to avoid the stress and expense of litigation. You are in good hands with this attorney.
