She attended Southwestern Law School (1996) and was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1996. She is currently the principal of Yochelson & Associates, A professional Corporation located in Woodland Hills, California.

Mrs. Yochelson was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and speaks fluent Spanish thanks to being raised in a bilingual family of Chilean descent. Additionally, she is a licensed real estate broker and Notary Public. Mrs. Yochelson prides herself in giving her clients the personal attention their case deserves and always being available to speak with them personally, something that is not always available at larger law firms.

She has had numerous successful results, including settlements of seven figures, but most importantly she will fight for her client’s rights and tell them the truth about their case.

With her numerous professional contacts and memberships in community organizations, as well as membership in Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) and Past-President of Encino Lawyers Association (ELA), she is able to provide referrals to clients for any legal issues outside of her field of practice.

Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. My landlords dog attacked me (5 bites) as I entered the backyard of our house. Went to hospital for treatment. Now what?
A: You should consult with a personal injury attorney before giving any statements to the homeowners insurance company. Although it sounds like there is coverage a lot of homeowner policies have exclusions for certain breeds of dogs.

Your attorney will also need more information about your status as a tenant. One question might be: Do you live on the landlord’s property?
Q. My brother took my car without asking and got into an accident.
A: You and your brother should immediately consult with an attorney before speaking to any insurance company representative, whether your own or the other party’s insurance. There are a lot of unanswered questions, such as who is at fault for the accident, which insurance would be primary (your car insurance or your brother’s insurance if he has any). If your brother did not have permission to drive your car the insurance company could deny coverage for the accident.
Q. My girlfriend got rear ended by a driver couple days ago. She contracted AAA which is the at fault driver's insurance.
A: If your girlfriend is injured then she should seek medical attention and not accept any amount of money that the insurance carrier is trying to get her to take immediately after the accident.

Often times what we believe to be simple whiplash type of injuries can turn out to be more significant but your girlfriend won’t know that until she sees a doctor.
