Attorney Profile

As an associate at The Law Offices of Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC, Jennifer B. Yates focuses her practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters. Her firm has offices in both Santa Barbara and Ventura, California, and she provides dedicated representation to clients throughout the region. Ms. Yates has been admitted to practice before all California state courts since 2009, and she has concentrated on family law for most of her legal career.

Many of Ms. Yates’s clients are people who are seeing their marriages come to an end, and they turn to her for assistance with child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of community assets and financial obligations. An adept negotiator, she will often take a lead role in attempting to reach a comprehensive settlement agreement that is agreeable to both parties. In the event that this is not possible, she is a forceful courtroom advocate on behalf of her clients.

After earning an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara, Ms. Yates received her Juris Doctor from the Santa Barbara College of Law in 2008. She spent time building her own family law practice and working as an associate attorney with a local firm after she was admitted to the bar in 2009, joining her current firm in 2017.

In addition to her divorce practice, Ms. Yates has worked on such family law matters as the preparation and review of prenuptial and postmarital agreements, and she has represented people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who now are filing petitions to have previously issued parenting or support court orders enforced or modified. The compassionate manner in which she handles these often emotionally charged issues has led to her receipt of a “Superb” peer-review rating through Avvo among other accolades from her fellow attorneys.
