Yvonne V. Jorgensen


(925) 934-6102
Yvonne Jorgensen has over 35 years of practice and has a wide variety of experiences to draw on when counseling clients. Throughout her career, she has focused on litigation, and through that work, she has built relationships with many clients whom she now act as general counsel for on a range of issues from contract review, pre-litigation business disputes, to issues arising in the midst of a construction project.

Yvonne’s trial experience includes being lead trial counsel in numerous jury trials. In 2014-2015, she was the lead trial counsel in a complex 98 day bench trial, which resulted in a favorable outcome for her architect client. In 2016, she participated in a binding arbitration in which Yvonne and her team successfully obtained specific performance of a sale of a motel in San Francisco, after the seller attempted to back out of the deal. From 2017 to 2019, she obtained a defense verdict for her clients in 3 separate jury trials. In 2021, Yvonne’s client prevailed in a jury trial involving a failure to disclose in a real estate purchase action.

While she is an accomplished trial attorney, the best result for a client is often a reasonable settlement. The fact that very few of her cases go to trial is evidence of effective settlement negotiation.
