Attorney Robin Yanes is committed to the interests of his clients, and has dedicated his life and career to helping the 'underdog.' Having grown up in the turbulent '60s, he has a keen awareness of injustice, both criminal and civil, and this discernment has allowed his practice to flourish tremendously for the last 25 years.

Yanes' professional and meticulous approach to serving clients' needs and delivering favorable verdicts has resulted in the unwavering loyalty of many high-profile clients, most notably Suge Knight of Death Row Records. So impressed are many Judges, Police Officers, and other members of law enforcement that they frequently refer their own close friends and relatives to his legal expertise.

Though a fierce advocate in the courtroom, Yanes has also put his skills to work to help those in the community. His focus has been on assisting those in need, particularly single moms and senior citizens and in communities with the greatest need, and with the fewest resources. As a native of Southern California his familiarity with the local legal system, from key players to legal procedures, is an invaluable resource for these clients.

A graduate of the University of Southern California, Yanes received his J.D. from Southwestern University with a specialization in Criminal Law. He has been an esteemed member of the Bar since 1977.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
