Leena Yousefi was featured and quoted on CBC news for her court success and victory on the case of L.C vs. E.S. which involved the mother removing the parent’s 3 year old daughter away from the father from Taiwan to Hong Kong and ultimately to Canada. By the time Leena obtained court orders that reunited the father and the daughter, 5 years had passed since the daughter had met with her father and also brother who was only 2 years older than her. The reunion was recorded and broadcasted by CBC, and was one of the most emotional reunions Canadians have ever seen.

Headline Maker: The Vancouver Sun and the Province.
YLaw was so well designed and appealable that it was unfortunately used as a part of an international sophisticated scam. Another lawyer represented to be Leena in the United States and used her website design and pictures to provide a legitimate picture of a lawyer and legal websites. Imitation is the best kind of flattery of course… just not when it comes to scams. Actually we don’t know if the personator was a lawyer or not, but he was trying to scam people out of possibly millions of dollars. Leena Yousefi, top* Vancouver family lawyer, was contacted by a gentleman who had set Guinness records three times in boating and wanted to borrow some money to start a boating business. That’s when he got involved in a sophisticated scam involving lawyers but thankfully realized early in the game that it was a scam. Want to know the full story? Click here.
