Online PR News – 03-March-2016 – california – New Orange, California. February, 2016: Yanez & Associates is pleased to announce the addition of a new attorney, Joanna Wong and 2 paralegal staffs such as Mark MacNeil and Ricarda "Ricky" Pfeister. Now all the five topmost attorneys and 4 paralegal members will work towards providing legal services in the areas like divorce concerns, property settlements, spousal support, child custody, visitation rights, restraining orders, probate, parenting time, paternity, legal separation, domestic violence, grandparent's rights and guardianship issues etc. The friendly family law team is ready to help people with their questions and concerns.
Joanna Wong is specialized in Family Law & Divorce Matters. Her practice as an attorney aligns with her own personal mantra of “every individual has a story, and everyone deserves to be heard.”
Although she practices all aspects of family law, including divorce, parentage, custody, visitation, and support, Ms. Wong concentrates on domestic violence restraining orders. In the last three years, she assisted over 100 petitioners and is a certified domestic violence victim advocate.
Ms. Wong believes in zealous representation of her clients. The court process can feel overwhelming, and many people feel voiceless at a time when their most precious treasures are at stake – their children, their families, and their autonomy. However, there is another way.
If you have a family law matter, Ms. Wong would like to hear your story, convey that story to the court in a compelling way, and protect what you value. Every individual has a story, and everyone deserves to be heard.
