SuperLawyers: Featuring Mike Yonke
“As I walked out of the Law School after a long day of studying, I held a dooropen for an elderly woman with her hands full. She was unusually thankful for something that every man should do for every woman. As we walked to our vehicles, we struck up a conversation about the weather, the Royals and other petty conversations that strangers talk about. I told her I was in law school and she got a surprising look on her face and said, ‘You are very polite for a future lawyer, I take back everything I ever thought about lawyers.'” – Clayton Whitworth
As many know, there is an unfortunate reputation of lawyers, shared nationally, that lawyers are solely in their profession to achieve financial success. It isn’t easy to find a lawyer who puts their clients ahead of everything else. If you are looking for a lawyer who will put your interest in front of his own, Michael Yonke is here for you.

Michael Yonke was taught to care about his clients from his father, Albert Yonke. His father was a very successful lawyer because of his ability to put his clients interests above everything else.
“My dad was the greatest influence on my life, He taught me that people are much more important than money, and that’s how you should approach the practice of law.” -Michael Yonke
Michael Yonke is one of few lawyers that practices both civil and criminal cases. He enjoys a challenge and frequently wins cases that other lawyers refuse to take, either because they don’t think it is a good case for them or because it wouldn’t be worth their time to pursue a case worth so little money. For Yonke, he looks at it differently.
“A good lawyer is a good problem solver. A great lawyer can solve difficult and complex problems consistently. That’s Mike. He wins cases that other lawyers would turn down.” – Kevin E.J. Regan
