Attorney Yokely has been in private practice law since 1984. He is no stranger to Macon-Bibb County. He worked here as an attorney during the 90's. He is back in Macon and determined to make a difference in the community this time around. That is why he opened his law practice on Pio Nono Avenue and called it The Neighborhood Law Group.
The Neighborhood Law Group was once the home of a Title Pawn Shop, but now there are no indications of anything except Attorney Daryl Von Yokely's personal injury practice. He went in, gutted and renovated the entire place. Yokely is no open for business to handling all personal injury cases.
"Some People questioned my reasoning for opening up a law practice in this area. My response was and still is, that Macon-Bibb County is where the people are. People need to know they are cared about. They should feel welcome when they are in your presence, regardless of their address."
Yokely partnered with OverTyme Bar and Grill Restaurant this past Thanksgiving and donated over 700 turkeys to the community. Yokely also partnered with 107.5 DJ Clydel Price to make sure the children in the community have a great Easter by buying all of their Easter accessories. The big Easter egg hunt was held at L.H. Williams Elementary School. In June, Yokely usually continues his giving by having a can food drive for the local food banks.
Yokely is from a very strong and independent family. Being from a family of entrepreneurs gave him the necessary tools to get where he is today. He wants to help others achieve their goals too. Yokely says, "It feels great to have set a goal and have it come true. I feel blessed; I want to assist others in making good decisions so their dreams can also come true. Hosea Williams, Civil Rights Leader, said it best, "Unbrought and Unbossed."
The Neighborhood Law Group's hours are Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday by appointment only.
Our Macon Staff is looking forward to meeting you.
