Show notes

Yale Spector is a solo practitioner and operator of the L.A.W. Truck.  Yale spent a number of years working in civil litigation with medical malpractice and negligence claims, where he observed and learned how to open his own practice.  After being a solo practitioner for nine years, Yale decided to make law accessible to various people in Baltimore and Washington D.C. by creating a mobile law office.  

Created with the intention of meeting people in their communities, the L.A.W. Truck literally provides “Legal Assistance on Wheels.” Yale makes himself and the truck available at local events, state fairs, farmers markets, retirement communities, and other venues to answer questions from visitors who do not need an appointment. The L.A.W. Truck allows Yale to differentiate himself from other lawyers.

Yale is a member of the Maryland state bar, District of Columbia bar association, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
