“Joining YVSM will allow me to expand my bankruptcy practice into the corporate world and to focus more narrowly on assisting small businesses.  YVSM is the only firm I considered joining when I was looking to leave the public sector. YVSM is a small firm with huge talent and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team.”
