The Yau Law Firm
Focused on Protecting Businesses and Representing the Injured

Areas of Practice


Our Litigation Division also handles Criminal Defense cases. Yau Law defends the constitutional protections of those charged with misdemeanor and felony offenses.

If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offense, the Yau Law Firm will evaluate the investigation against you.  We will analyze the prosecutor’s evidence, and challenge them to satisfy their high burden of proof:  beyond a reasonable doubt. 

Depending on the charge, there may be negotiable options to prevent a conviction.  Examples of these options are pre-trial diversion programs, like Drug Court or Teen Court. 

Yau Law has experience in many areas of criminal defense including:

  • Drug offenses
  • DUI/DWI, and other alcohol related offenses
  • Weapons and firearms charges
  • Criminal Mischief and Arson
  • Domestic relations
  • Violent crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Burglary and Trespass
  • Thefts (from Petit Theft to Grand Theft), Robbery, and Larceny

It is very important to understand the crime and the charges brought against you. Yau Law has experienced attorneys who will stand at your side to represent you, every step of the way.


When disputes arise, Yau Law is prepared to help negotiate settlements, file lawsuits, or take cases to trial.  Our attorneys have represented both Plaintiffs and Defendants in:

  • Small Claims Court
  • County Court
  • Circuit Court
  • Federal Court – Middle District of Florida

Often, business disputes revolve around a Breach of Contract.  These usually involve a disagreement about payment, services, or goods.  If there is a dispute surrounding your corporation's obligations, or if your corporation needs help to enforce another party's promises, Yau Law is prepared to advocate on your business' behalf.

Yau Law handles a variety of Personal Injury disputes, including Auto Accidents, Slip & Fall, and Dog Bite cases.  If you are injured because of someone else's negligence, and you need help with compensation for medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, scarring, or disability, contact us.  If the at-fault party or insurance company disputes the severity of your injury or refuses to compensate you fairly for hurting you, we can help.

BP oil spill claims are in a league of their own, since claims can be made for injuring both people and businesses.  Thus, claimants should seek an attorney with experience in representing individuals and companies alike, when seeking compensation from BP.  We are prepared to evaluate your BP claim and advise you of your rights.
