Serving the Underserved: Julia Yoo represents female prisoners and others society has written off

Attorney Julia Yoo

Julia Yoo has won cases for a female prisoner who was left to miscarry her baby in her cell and a woman raped by a corrections officer. She authored the briefs in Bryan v. MacPherson, a 2009 case that led to a landmark 9th Circuit Court decision restricting police use of the Taser. She is also president of the National Police Accountability Project (NPAP), the country’s largest civil rights attorneys’ organization. She is the first woman and person of color to hold the position.

In the words of San Diego attorney Charles Duke, she is "a pitbull—the toughest attorney I have worked with in 34 years." Hear more about Iredale and Yoo's cases and their commitment to the underserved on Super Lawyers.
