What We'll Bring To Your Case
Hear From Our Clients
My family is so grateful for the guidance and counsel of Yarborough Applegate in the wrongful death case regarding my mother. Attorney Perry Buckner and paralegal Amy Johnson were the professional, supportive team we needed to secure justice. Perry is a knowledgeable professional and strategist who guided me every step of the way to protect my interests. Amy provided endless hours of professional guidance and emotional support. They have access to professionals in a variety of fields who aided our case. In a foreign landscape, grieving, I looked to them for guidance. They heard me when I said that the case needed to be about more than a potential financial resolution: I wanted to effect change in the nursing home landscape. I highly recommend Yarborough Applegate as your partner when you have suffered loss of any kind. Tammy L.
