Who We Are Page

Counselors at Law

Can a dollar value be placed on peace of mind?

Is there an hourly rate for trust and confidence?

When your business or family requires personalized guidance or advocacy based on a true understanding of your unique goals, needs, and budget, can you get that from a website full of forms?

At Yee Law Group, we firmly believe that the answer to the foregoing questions is a resounding “no.”

We are experienced and sophisticated attorneys at law who never lose sight of our role as counselors at law for the clients we have the privilege to represent. When we founded Meyer & Yee, we did so with a clear vision that puts you, the client, at the center of everything we do. Your goals, your issues, and your bottom line frame our approach and guide our work. We add value by valuing you.

Core Values That Separate Us From the Rest

Every member of the Meyer & Yee team is guided by three core values that distinguish us from larger, more impersonal law firms as well as smaller firms with more limited experience and capabilities:

·         Understanding.When you meet with us, we strive first to understand; who you are, what you value, where your concerns lie, and what goals you are seeking to achieve. By taking the time to get to know you, we can develop strategies that are specifically tailored to accomplish your objectives in the most efficient, effective, and economical way possible.

·         Professionalism and Integrity. We are humbled by the trust our clients have placed in us over the years. We believe that we have earned that trust in no small part because our clients know that their attorneys will be straight with them, providing counsel that is based on their needs, not ours. Too often, and not without some reason, lawyers are maligned as being more focused on billable hours than on client service. At Meyer & Yee, you will never wonder what drives us: it’s your bottom line, not ours.

·         Zealous, Experienced, and Practical Advocacy. With over 40 years of combined experience that spans the globe, the firm offers clients in the Sacramento/Roseville area and across the state a level of representation difficult to find in even the largest law firms. Whether around the corner or around the world, we know how to get things accomplished for our clients, combining the depth of our knowledge of the law with creativity, innovation, and the use of cutting-edge technology. We take an uncompromising approach to protecting our clients’ interests, whether that means aggressive courtroom advocacy, meticulous drafting of documents, or deft negotiating.

Yee Law Group: Adding Value By Valuing You

We see our clients as our partners, all of us working together to achieve the best possible outcomes. If your business or individual needs require attorneys who will provide you with the highest level of legal representation based on open, honest, and plain-spoken communication, please give us a call at to discuss your issues and concerns. We look forward to the privilege of being your attorneys.

estate trust
When most firms were charging $3,500 to $4,900 and Yee came in with $2,400, I was skeptical so I checked the State BAR web and google ratings sites: No complaints and high ratings, respectively. I know that most trusts include boiler plate wording with specifics added to tailor it to a families' specifics, so most of the work for the law firm is word processing and saving to a file. In my book, the higher costs are going to lucrative retirement pensions and lifestyles. The Yee paralegal was always available and passed my detailed additions/questions past the attorneys (my 2 sentence additions were converted into a large legally-worded paragraph or paragraphs). The paralegal also had great advice on how to deal with unlikely events. In our final meeting, we asked for two physical copies and they provided them (with a smile and a "no problem") along with a thumb drive containing the electronic copy. Yee allows free minor changes within a year and a $300 charge for later changes down the road. No regrets from this customer.

Hire Attorney Mike Yee!
I called Mike Yee’s office to inquire about some services I was seeking. His office staff as well as Mike were very friendly and answered all of my questions. Mike insisted I call back for a consultation so he can better assist me. We set up a consultation, and after speaking with Mike Yee, I decided to hire Mike Yee as my permanent attorney. With Mike Yee I set up my Trust. And I am so happy with the service. He is very intelligent and experienced. I recommend Mike and his team to anyone seeking attorney services.

Trust
I recently had the pleasure of working with Michael Yee to create an estate trust, and I must say that my experience was nothing short of excellent. From the moment I reached out to discuss my estate planning needs, Michael Yee demonstrated a high level of professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for my well-being and wishes. One of the aspects I appreciated most about working with Michael Yee was their ability to explain complex legal concepts in a clear and understandable manner. They took the time to thoroughly educate me on the benefits of establishing a trust for my estate, patiently addressing all of my questions and concerns along the way. Their depth of knowledge and experience in estate planning was evident, and I felt confident entrusting them with such an important matter. Throughout the process of creating the estate trust, Michael Yee exhibited exceptional attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect of my estate plan was carefully tailored to meet my specific goals and objectives. They were incredibly responsive to my needs and promptly addressed any revisions or adjustments that were requested. Furthermore, Michael Yee demonstrated a strong commitment to ethical standards and integrity, always prioritizing my best interests above all else. I felt reassured knowing that I had a trustworthy and reliable advocate guiding me through the complexities of estate planning.

First time with a lawyer
Mr. Yee was very professional, courteous, and engaging. His staff also reflected these qualities as well. They were very accommodating when I had to reschedule my appointment due to Covid and were able to expedite a return appointment for me that worked well with my schedule.

Peace of Mind
Micheal and team were very accommodating with their schedule, staying open late and communicating above and beyond. Micheal made personal calls to confirm that everything was the way we needed it and took the time to answer all of our questions. Having to need a trust created is stressful enough, but the whole staff made the whole experience pain free. Forever grateful to have found Yee Law Group.

Awesome Lawyer
Mike was extremely thorough with our Estate & Will planning process. He really took the time to understand what we needed. We are starting a surrogacy journey so the details had to be pretty specific. Mike took the to meet with us and address all our of questions. He even patiently made several revisions to our draft based on feedback from the surrogacy agency.
