Former Prosecutor

As a former prosecutor, Ms. Yum has the experience and knowledge to know how the government works and thinks. Many San Diego criminal attorneys sit around and try to guess what’s going on in the prosecutor’s mind, but Ms. Yum has actually been there.

As a former deputy district attorney, Ms. Yum prosecuted cases just like yours. She received a wide range of trial experience when she was specifically assigned to various units at the DA’s office including: domestic violence, sex crimes and child abuse, misdemeanors (i.e. DUI, petty thefts, etc.), grand theft auto, general felonies, criminal street gangs, and many more. This type of background provides Ms. Yum with a unique advantage when it comes to negotiations, whether it’s resolving a probation case instead of prison or getting charges dismissed altogether.

Most importantly, Ms. Yum’s prior experience as a former prosecutor gives her a unique advantage when it comes to spotting and attacking the prosecution’s weak points in the courtroom. Winning a fight becomes much easier when you know all of the in’s and out’s of your opponent’s strategy. Because Ms. Yum was a prosecutor, she has insight that most criminal attorneys can only dream of.

Affordable Fees

When you look at Ms. Yum’s experience, abilities, and commitment you may think that her fees are astronomical. Not so. Here at the Law Offices of Anna R. Yum, we have a very fair, reasonable fee structure – and nothing like what you might find at some other San Diego criminal attorneys’ offices.

Think of it this way. The criminal lawyer you choose, the one you hire to represent you, will be a primary contributing factor in the direction of your life from this point. Will you be punished for something you did not do? Will you receive a harsher punishment than you deserve? Will you get lost in the criminal justice system – or fall through the cracks completely? The wrong attorney could take you down that road and who knows where you will end up.

As your San Diego criminal lawyer, Anna Yum will be committed to your case and do everything in her power to ensure that justice is served and you get a fair, fighting chance on your day in court.


Anna Yum works tirelessly on behalf of her clients and she offers a personalization that most attorneys cannot, do not, or will not offer. For instance, if you work with Ms. Yum, then you are working with her alone. Here at the Law Offices of Anna R. Yum, your case will not be passed onto a paralegal or law clerk. Ms. Yum personally handles all of her cases and she establishes a trusting relationship with all of her clients. Click here for some of her excellent reviews from clients who praise her work product, work ethic, responsiveness, and winning results.

Client Testimonials

One of the most important aspects in choosing to hire a criminal defense attorney is to do your background research and due diligence. Research is key in assessing the attorney’s education, trial experience, number of years of experience, and whether there are any state bar complaints. Perhaps one of the most significant factors in conducting your research is to assess whether an attorney is willing to fight for you and go to trial if necessary. Ms. Yum is an aggressive trial attorney with an outstanding track record who is committed to fighting for her clients. Another significant aspect of choosing the right criminal defense attorney is to assess former client testimonials and reviews. Anna Yum has an impeccable rating on both Google and 10.0 rating on Avvo with respect to clients who have worked with her. We invite you to read her numerous reviews here. You will see that Ms. Yum is tireless in aggressively representing her clients and that she achieves exceptional results. Why is this important? Because results matter… especially when it comes to defending your freedom and fighting for your life.

Domestic Violence

If you hire an aggressive and experienced domestic violence attorney to conduct an extensive investigation and build your best legal defense, then it may be possible to block criminal charges before they are even filed by the prosecution.  Of course, for this defense to work you need to contact Attorney Yum right away—before the prosecution decides to file domestic violence charges against you. 

DUI Charges

Many DUI lawyers will tell you that your case cannot be won.  This is not necessarily true.  The conduct of the officer, the legality of your arrest, field sobriety tests, proper functioning test equipment, and correct handling of your evidence are just a few of the issues that can be raised during your DUI defense by your San Diego criminal attorney.

Restraining Orders

Restraining order law in California is complex. Having a knowledgeable and skilled San Diego Criminal Attorney working on your behalf is one of the best steps you can take.

Drug Charges

Drug charges in San Diego can result in the government seizing your property, a prison sentence, fines, or all of the above. Anna Yum has over 10 years handling drug charges.
