The law practice itself is 17 years old. Michael and Yolanda attended William Howard Taft High School, Bronx, together. Working together and successfully is not a problem for them. They work in the community; volunteering to teach law to public school teens and operating a soup kitchen which they fund. They also do volunteer work for local shelters. We handle cases in the five boroughs and Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties.They have two sons and one is a Harvard Law School graduate and the other is half way through law school. While we are attorneys, very often other needs must be addressed as our clients lives can be greatly impacted by their accidents.
