Kelley Uustal Trial Attorney

Yanique L. Otto




“I hate to see people get taken advantage of. My work as an attorney allows me to protect the rights of the injured and disenfranchised. I get to help people who would otherwise not have a voice, or not know how to stand up to large corporations. That brings me great joy.”
