Getting to Know Brett Yauger...

I became a lawyer because...after serving as an officer in the United States Army, I found that I enjoyed helping people solve problems both professional and personal.

What I like most about the law is...fulfilling my sworn duty to serve and protect my client at all cost.

My most rewarding case was...a workers' compensation case in which a young man lost an eye on the job. I was able to get compensation for him to pay his medical bills and secure his family's financial future.

I founded Rowland & Yauger because...I wanted a "hands on" approach to the practice of law. I wanted to be in direct contact with my clients and their concerns.

What makes Rowland & Yauger different from other lawyers? We are a law firm that will do what it takes to get the job done. Our clients work hard and so do we.

Someone I really admire mother who raised my two brothers and I all alone after my father passed away when he was only 29 years of age.

When not at work I, hunting and other outdoor activities.
