A confrontation with the Virginia legal system due to a family dispute or criminal charge can be stressful and overwhelming. Allow an attorney with more than 24 years of experience handle your legal case and have confidence in knowing that you will obtain the best possible settlement. My name is Wanda Phillips Yoder, and I vigorously work toward protecting my clients' rights while treating them and their cases with the care, respect and attention they deserve.
My dedication and passion regarding my practice has earned me a BV® Distinguished Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® for my professionalism and ethics. I provide Virginia residents with sound counsel and strong representation regarding the following areas:
Because I understand the apprehension associated with confronting any legal situation, my goal is to make the process as simple, affordable and as quick as possible. I thoroughly analyze your case's unique circumstances in order to handle it effectively and efficiently, and I respond to my clients promptly. While I advocate alternative dispute resolution techniques, like arbitration and mediation, I welcome the opportunity to take your case to court if it stands to produce a better result for you. And because I appear in trial and civil courts throughout Virginia, I also have the necessary negotiation and court presence to effectively defend you against a criminal prosecutor.
