LEWISTON, Maine, Oct. 4, 2016 – Attorney Esther Yoo of Falmouth has joined the Berman & Simmons law firm, where she will represent plaintiffs in personal injury cases.
A native of California, Yoo graduated from Harvard University and served in the AmeriCorps VISTA program. In 2013, she earned her law degree at the UCLA School of Law, where she was a Senior Editor of the UCLA Law Review. Yoo began her career at O’Melveny & Myers LLP in Los Angeles. She was a law clerk for the Honorable Dolly M. Gee of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, and most recently worked as an associate attorney at Pierce Atwood LLP in Portland, Maine.
