He co-founded M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers and currently serves as its co-managing partner, helping numerous accident-related injury victims and their families.
Early Life and Education

M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers’ partner Yamin has represented clients such as CIM Group Inc (owner of Hollywood & Highland Center and Kodak Theater) and CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis – an industry leader for commercial real estate services and investments).
Yamin chose personal injury law because he understands the needs of those injured due to others’ negligence. His own experience with an accident as a teenager gave him insight into how best to advocate for his client’s rights against billion-dollar insurers.

At his group auditions, Jackson and Abdul were delighted by his rendition of Betty Everett’s song “It’s in Her Kiss”. However, Simon Cowell found him lacking enough personality.
