*As is common in trial practice, many of the cases in which verdicts and/or judgments are achieved ultimately settle for confidential amounts during the appeal process or during post trial motions. Anyone reading the information on this page must also understand that litigation is very uncertain and that no attorney (including the attorneys at Yance Law Firm) can guarantee any result for any given case, and that the actual or expected results of any case depend upon a large number of factors, which require a complete and thorough evaluation by an experienced attorney. Each result in each case listed on this page was achieved based on the very specific and very unique facts of each case and the law that applied to it, including among many other factors, the injuries, jurisdiction, venue, applicable law, witnesses, parties, testimony, and jury just to identify a few. Yance Law Firm does not guarantee case results, and the information on this page should not be used in any way in an effort to determine the type of result one could expect in any particular case.  The list of cases above is merely a sample of some of the larger cases handled by the Yance Law Firm attorneys and is in no way intended to be a complete list, and is in no way intended to imply that the attorneys have a flawless win/loss record.  In fact, although there are not many, the attorneys have lost cases, and these are not listed.  Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
