Yeakey Matthew A Atty
I learned of Mr. Yeakey from my husband. He's been my attorney on two separate cases with a particularly slippery adversary. Our cases are complicated and we experienced much difficulty collecting on Orders that were already in place. I found Mr. Yeakey to be honest, hard-working, and also sensitive to the complicated nature of our case not to mention my own personal hardship. It's been a journey but have been blessed to have Mr. Yeakey for my attorney. I'm finally getting payment that was long overdue. I consulted with several attorneys before retaining him, and have not regretted it. I've also referred many friends to his office and several of them have thanked me for his referral. If you have an adversary or ex who you think might be hiding or down-playing funds or assets, Mr. Yeakey is definitely your guy. If you're super-sensitive and emotionally complicated, Mr. Yeakey is also the attorney for you.

Incompetent, unprofessional, lacks etiquette. This 'attorney' would do much better as server at a soup line. My parents wasted a small fortune on his lack of knowledge, constant rambling in circles in person and over the phone, and put no effort to do anything. He is lazy during an appointment with him I saw a you lady through files on his desk. These people are nothing but bottom feeders.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
