Yankwitt LLP Strengthens Litigation Team with Addition of Waleska Suero Garcia

Counsel expands firm roster of former Big Law attorneys, prosecutors and federal law clerks.

Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, announces the addition of Waleska Suero Garcia to the firm’s roster of former Big Law attorneys, prosecutors and federal law clerks, joining as counsel in the firm’s White Plains office.

“We are thrilled to have Waleska join our team,” said Russell Yankwitt, founder and managing partner of Yankwitt LLP. “Her experience at Boies Schiller, as well as her focus on two of our fast-growing practice areas – Criminal Defense & Investigations and Appeals – add tremendous bench strength to the firm and the capabilities we offer our clients.”

While working at Boies Schiller, Suero Garcia represented a broad client base on complex federal and state civil and criminal matters throughout New York. Her diverse caseload included representing a professional sports team in commercial litigation, being part of a trial team that represented a spouse in a complex matrimonial matter and representing indigent defendants in narcotics conspiracy cases, successfully obtaining below-guidelines sentences for her clients.

In addition to her hands-on trial experience, Suero Garcia has an extensive appellate background, having clerked for the Honorable O. Rogeriee Thompson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Appeals Bureau of the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office, where she argued numerous appeals in New York state courts. While at Boies Schiller, she also participated in the drafting of a certiorari petition and amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Suero Garcia also clerked for the Honorable Michael S. Nachmanoff, then Magistrate Judge and now District Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

She earned her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, where she served as Senior Notes Editor on the Georgetown Journal of Law & Modern Critical Race Perspectives and graduated cum laude from New York University. She is fluent in Spanish and conversational in Italian.
