Meet the Lawyers

We’re with Oaklaw, the office and resource-sharing space in Downtown Oakland, lawyers, legal workers and community organizers for social justice.

Hasmik Geghamyan, Geghamyan Law Office, provides quality and affordable legal assistance and advocacy in the areas of civil rights and community business transactions. She believes that a cross-functional, integrated model of policy, organizing and law can be effectively used to bring about social and economic justice.

Rob Yanagida, Yanagida Law Office, advises cooperatives, non-profits and businesses in navigating issues of starting-up, contracts and financing.  He has supported clients from a tiny urban farm to a global technology behemoth.   Rob applies his skills, honed over decades, to help build sustainable enterprises with socially-conscious practices.
