Overview

Yveline draws on her strong business background to support clients and attorneys in labor and employment matters.

Before joining the legal profession, Yveline built a successful career in the food and wine industry, working with sales and import management for various French companies in the United States. Yet after she helped an attorney friend establish his own law firm, she realized her true interest lay in the legal world, and she returned to school for a paralegal studies program and accepted her first paralegal role in 2010.

At Husch Blackwell, Yveline supports a wide variety of labor and employment litigation matters, including class action lawsuits. She’s excited to work in a practice area that changes often, especially in California, where updates to employment law are frequent and she has constant opportunities to learn. Yveline has extensive experience with all phases of litigation, trial preparation and trial support.

Yveline is known for her organizational skills, her flexibility and her ability to work well under pressure, with the client’s end goal kept front and center. However, she’s perhaps most known for the understanding her business background provides: after nearly 20 years in the business world, an MBA degree, and the up-close view she had of the founding of a private practice law firm, Yveline is fully aware of the realities and practicalities of running a business. She readily understands client challenges and intuitively grasps their perspective.
