When looking for a divorce lawyer, I knew it had to be someone with compassion and the strength to fight. A neighbor who had used a lawyer for a custody dispute recommended Emily Yu. I had several appointments booked with lawyers who had been recommended by friends, but after my initial meeting with Emily, I canceled the other appointments. She showed the empathy and the determination I needed to help me navigate this heartwrenching process. What I like most about Emily, is that she really tried to get to know me and understand what I was expecting to receive from the settlement. She gave advice based on my needs/expectations and supported my decisions. It is emotionally & financially very difficult to go through a divorce after a 30 year relationship. Emily showed great compassion and was ready to fight along with me for what I was legally entitled to receive from my spouse. I am so thankful that she was there to help me navigate this process especially during a pandemic!
