Q&A with Los Angeles Family Law Attorney Yasmine A. Sissoko
What motivated you to work in your field?
“I was motivated to work in family law because I believe the family unit is important. Unfortunately, it is inevitable that some relationships within a family unit may end and result in a divorce. However, I want to use my legal knowledge and personal experiences to assist parents and their children in maintaining amicable and respectful relationships with each other during and after this process.”
How can your representation make a difference?
“Family law issues seemingly bring out high emotions and conflict. For that reason, it is my hope that my calm and conscientious demeanor will influence my clients and help them reach solutions efficiently.”
