“We learned a lot from Dad’s example,” says Nicholas J. Yocca. “His main lesson to us has always been that working hard is more important than luck.” The Yocca brothers seemed to have learned their lessons well. Both Yocca brothers were class valedictorians and National Merit Scholars out of Dana Hills High School in Dana Point. Now The Yocca Law Firm is listed within five practice areas in The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and has received the AV Preeminent rating, the highest possible rating of Martindale-Hubbell, the most trusted source of ratings of attorneys, based on the opinions of their peers.
All three of the partners at The Yocca Law Firm began their impressive careers within sizable firms.

A full-service transactional and business litigation law firm, The Yocca Law Firm takes great pride in providing premier service to its clients. “We formed the firm to provide the highest quality service,” says Mark Yocca. “What we offer is exceptional service at a more reasonable cost than your metropolitan law firms.”
