Yaron has successfully represented clients through all aspects of litigation, from pre-litigation counseling and investigation to mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeal.

Yaron also provides clients with employment advice and counsel, employment policy and pre-litigation consulting, and representation before various administrative bodies, including the Department of Labor (DOL) – Labor Commissioner’s Office, California Civil Rights Department (CRD, formerly known as the Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Adept at navigating complex legal matters, communicating effectively, and negotiating settlements, Yaron provides clients with insightful, strategic counsel to preserve their interests and minimize potential litigation exposure.

Yaron has been distinguished with an “AV-Preeminent®” rating by Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™, the highest possible rating for an attorney for ethical standards and legal ability. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence and is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers—members of the bar and the judiciary. Yaron has also been given the esteemed honor of being selected to the Southern California Super Lawyer® list. Super Lawyers® maintains a rigorous selection process where attorneys are evaluated based on recognition and achievement.

In addition to his work in private practice, Yaron completed the prestigious Trial Advocacy Project (TAP), a program through which selected civil attorneys receive intensive trial training to graduate into a position as a pro bono publico prosecutor. Upon his completion of the TAP program, Yaron was appointed to a position as a deputy district attorney with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
