About Joseph N. Yamaner

About Joseph N. Yamaner

Our founding attorney, Joseph Yamaner has a unique history. Before attending law school, and later founding this law firm, Joseph M. Yamaner, served as a reconnaissance commanding officer in the Israeli Defense Forces and the Border Guard serving during The Six Day and Yom Kippur wars. He was cited a number of times for courage and leadership during battles with terrorists

He was recognized by Lawline.com as one of the premier lecturers on a variety of legal issues, including estate planning and real estate matters. He is also a distinguished member of Lawyers of Distinction. He continues to be active in educating the public on new, interesting aspects of the law. He is fluent in Turkish, Hebrew, English and Ladino, and he speaks some French as well.

Mr. Yamaner’s role in our family estate multi-million dollar Holocaust-related case has been both essential and invaluable.

Had it not been for his ability to deal with meticulous details while keeping the overall process intact, we would not have been able to obtain the amount of compensation within the timeframe it was obtained.
