Firm Details

Yoka & Smith, LLP is a firm of trial attorneys dedicated to providing the highest quality representation in civil litigation matters. We specialize in trial practice and the defense of general tort litigation, including personal injury, products liability, premises liability, business and transactional, professional malpractice, insurance, employment, construction defect, subrogation, and toxic and environmental tort litigation. The firm is dedicated to providing our clients with a zealous and creative protection of their interests on a cost-effective basis, providing both results and value.
Our primary emphasis has and continues to be our trial practice. All of our members are experienced trial attorneys and we possess the technological infrastructure that enables us to successfully litigate extremely complex and high exposure matters that were once only the province of much larger firms. Utilization of technology in a flexible and focused way has allowed us to provide this higher level of capability without sacrificing the personal contact and attention our clients have come to expect.

Within our litigation practice, we have a particular emphasis on product liability defense. Our clients include tire and aftermarket wheel companies, manufacturers, retailers and lessors of heavy equipment such as forklifts, specialty process engineering firms, manufacturers of petrochemical and electrical equipment, and fitness equipment manufacturers and retailers. We are well equipped for 21st century trial practice and make wide use of state of the art trial presentation software and hardware.

Our attorneys are extremely familiar with the industries in which we practice; we hold memberships in our clients’ trade organizations and we actively follow developments within those industries. This familiarity allows us to partner with our clients in pursuing a result that considers not only the immediate matter but the total impact upon their business as a whole.
