Joseph Yamaner

Before attending law school Joseph 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.

Joseph’s opinion as how to deal with clients is in his own words, "I learned to treat people with respect and each decision with careful consideration. At the same time, I learned how to take a deliberate action when necessary, and have a full control over my clients' interests.”

Although most cases are not life and death matters (while estate matters ironically are), every transaction is important from complex shopping center deals to home transactions to estate disputes and administration. 

In addition to speaking English and Hebrew, Joseph also is fluent in Turkish and (Ladino) Spanish. His world view enables him to appreciate different cultures and perspectives. His experience and tenacity in negotiations enables him to strongly pursue your best interests while maintaining active communication with you.
