Ford Law Pros P.C.
"My favorite part about trial work is connecting with my jury.
The moment that I see the light bulbs turn on in their eyes,
I know that I have just made my client's story real to them."
Yaida O. Ford, Principal of Ford Law Pros P.C.
Yaida Ford is a trial lawyer who represents clients in condominium and HOA law, employment law, civil rights, and estate
planning matters. A passionate litigator, Ford enjoys trying cases to verdict but has also resolved cases without trial.
Ford has successfully defended condominium associations in complex litigation against some of the world's largest
financial institutions. To date, she is undefeated in commercial litigation where she represents condominium
associations who have been sued by big banks.
Ford and her legal team have represented
employers and employees in disputes over
wrongful termination, discrimination, reasonable
accommodations, sexual harassment and wage
fraud. She has represented clients in the federal
and private sectors and has litigated before the
EEOC, federal courts and the U.S. courts of appeals
in employment and civil rights matters.
In her estate planning practice, Ford assists married
couples, high-net-worth individuals and single,
unmarried parents who want to make sure their
assets are protected in the event of illness or passing.
