WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Yankwitt LLP is pleased to announce that Cassandra Vogel has joined the firm's White Plains office as counsel.

"We are thrilled Cassandra is now on our team of skilled attorneys," said Russell Yankwitt, founding partner of Yankwitt LLP. "Her experience working as a litigator at a New York City law firm as well as her year as a law clerk for the Honorable Nelson S. Román of the Southern District of New York exposed her to some of the most complex cases in both federal and state courts at the trial and appellate court levels."

"With the addition of Cassandra, we are now the only law firm in the state to have a former law clerk for each of the sitting district court judges in the White Plains federal courthouse." 

Vogel joins Yankwitt LLP from New York City law firm Kostelanetz & Fink LLP, where her practice focused on civil and commercial litigation, as well as tax controversy matters and white collar defense cases.

Vogel graduated magna cum laude with her J.D. degree from Brooklyn Law School (2013), where she was on the Executive Committee of the Brooklyn Law Review and was an International Business Fellow at the Dennis J. Block Center for International Business Law. She earned her B.A. degree from Johns Hopkins University (2008).

While in law school, Vogel completed internships with the Eastern District of New York U.S. Attorney's Office, Civil Division, and the Securities and Exchange Commission. She is fluent in French.

Yankwitt LLP is an elite trial and litigation firm located in White Plains, NY.
All of the firm's New York partners and senior lawyers are former federal law clerks or prosecutors or both, and its lawyers are prominent members of the Westchester and New York City bars. They all draw on their broad experience and expertise to produce exceptional outcomes for their clients, which include Fortune 100 companies, other New York law firms and high-net-worth individuals.
