Attorney Bonnie Yamani did not choose a traditional career path. Encouraged to pursue a career in medicine, she elected to major in biochemistry during her undergraduate studies. Following her degree and the advice of her mentors, she held key positions at several major medical research institutions, including Case Western Reserve University, Johns Hopkins University and The Cleveland Clinic. While working at Johns Hopkins, it was suggested that a law degree would be a better fit for Bonnie, rather than continuing with an advanced degree in the biomedical sciences.
During law school, Bonnie consistently ranked in the top of her class and was an active member of the school’s nationally ranked moot court team. She also studied in France, earning a certificate in international and comparative law and competed in the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot in Vienna, Austria.
Bonnie is committed to continual learning, whether it is keeping apprised of changes in the law or educating herself about a client’s business or industry. She is a member of several local and nationwide organizations, which has evolved into an extensive network of contacts and resources for her practice. Through these networks, a client can be assured in knowing that Bonnie will not only provide the best service possible, but she can also help them grow their business network.
Bonnie is a dedicated law professional that not only delivers efficient competency in business and international law, but she also commits a portion of her time to passionately serving the Jacksonville community. In 2012, Bonnie was recognized by Jacksonville Area Legal Aid for her pro bono work and continues to volunteer a portion of her time to those in need.
