Essential Law Group is a general practice law firm serving businesses and individuals throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We are problem solvers who think outside the box and do not lose focus on the bigger picture.
We take the time to understand and research our clients' unique circumstances in order to provide meaningful representation. We invest in state of the art legal research software to keep up to date with the changing laws and to provide our clients the best possible representation.
We have worked on cases ranging from minor traffic violations to national security matters. We have been exposed to the full gamut of issues and are able to draw on our experiences to think strategically and position our clients for the best possible resolution.
We are always actively thinking on our clients' behalf. Our goal is not just to solve a particular problem, but to build and develop a relationship with our clients and to position them for long-term success.
Prior to starting Essential Law Group (formerly Law Offices of Charlie W. Yu), Charlie served as a judicial clerk in the Civil and Appellate Divisions of the San Francisco Superior Court and as a judicial extern under Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker of the United States District Court.
