Mrs. Yarnal's interest in becoming a family law attorney was sparked at the age of seven, when her parents adopted her younger brother. She remembers her parents' confusion in the process. She recalls meeting a family law attorney who invited her to appear at court. A seven-year old girl wearing a shoulder-padded jacket appeared before the judge and promised to take care of her now-brother. Signing the adoption papers changed her life and established her desire to become an attorney.
Also growing up with a shared parenting plan with her then-teenage (half) brother visiting on weekends and holidays gave Mrs. Yarnal the desire to practice child-centered family law.
Mrs. Yarnal attended University of California, Santa Cruz and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science. During her junior year she attended Universidad de Carlos III in Madrid, Spain, where she studied international politics and discovered a love of traveling. Mrs. Yarnal obtained a Juris Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she graduated cum laude. During law school, Mrs. Yarnal worked as a law clerk and was a volunteer certified law student at Veteran’s Village Family Law Clinic, helping San Diego homeless veteran’s with family law legal matters.
