Kevin Yaldoo’s course to become an attorney, and help people, was determined very early in his life when his older brother, Steve, whom Mr. Yaldoo worked alongside daily in their family’s Southwest Detroit convenience store, asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. Kevin answered a lawyer, and from that point on it became Steve’s mission to place his brother in a position to become an attorney, and Kevin’s duty to work hard to accomplish the feat.
The journey to become an attorney took Mr. Yaldoo to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI where he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science. Mr. Yaldoo then studied law at Case Western Reserve’s Thomas Backus School of Law. While in law school, Mr. Yaldoo was a member of the National Moot Court Team. Additionally, Mr. Yaldoo interned with the Appellate Division of the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. Mr. Yaldoo also interned with the Homicide Unit at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office where he stayed briefly after becoming an attorney.
It was soon after gaining his license to practice law that Mr. Yaldoo found that many individuals do not have access to the type of advocate needed to protect their rights. Mr. Yaldoo then entered the private sector and began his practice and focusing on assisting individuals in desperate need of an aggressive, empathetic, and zealous advocate.
Mr. Yaldoo could not be more pleased with his career choices. He has been successful at the trial and appellate levels, obtained awards for his clients in the tens of millions of dollars, with one individual award valued at over five and one-half million ($5,550,000.00) dollars. Mr. Yaldoo will tell you the most gratifying part of these accomplishments is that many of his old clients still reach out to him, not because they have a legal question, but because they know that the bond formed extends beyond the day the release is signed, verdict read, or judgment entered.
Additionally, Mr. Yaldoo is well respected by his peers. He regularly serves on the case evaluation panels for both Wayne and Macomb County. Mr. Yaldoo was recently admitted to the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group in which less than 1% of the attorneys nationwide are admitted. Mr. Yaldoo has also written articles and been published in the State Bar of Michigan’s Journal of Insurance and Indemnity Law. These experiences provide Mr. Yaldoo with a well-rounded background that make unique among his peers and more than capable to handle any matter.
In his free time, Kevin enjoys spending his time with his wife Renee and their three daughters, Faith, Camille, and Josie. Kevin is also an avid sports fan, cheering on the University of Michigan and any team representing Detroit.
