Yelena Yukhvid

Associate

I decided to join PSWH because of its reputation for excellence in New Jersey, the variety of the practice areas that the firm offers, and the culture.  As an associate, I have the opportunity to work on and become involved with a wide range of matters, including insurance defense, employment law, and complex commercial litigation issues. The culture of the firm is also positive and supportive, with an atmosphere that is friendly and cooperative.

Prior to joining Pashman Stein, Ms. Yukhvid clerked for the Honorable Mary F. Thurber, J.S.C., of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County.
