He made sure I understood and explained everything, and he was always available to explain
something when I was confused. – Chris S

The thoroughness and knowledge he applied to our case was impressive. The questions he asked
of us, the way he investigated our claim and the detail with which he organized our case, showed
us he was a thoughtful, hard working lawyer. His advice was not biased and allowed us to make
appropriate decisions… I’m sure glad he was on our side… We are happy to highly recommend
Mr Yerema. – Karen and Craig W
