Tori’s interest in law is fueled by her motivation to help people, making Littlejohn Law a perfect fit! She was drawn to the firm as a result of Littlejohn Law’s client and team-oriented culture. During her free time, Tori enjoys spending time with her family, target shooting, and knitting.

Yuri Watamura - Yuri was born in Columbus, Ohio but grew up in New Orleans. He attended Stetson University College of Law in Florida because they had a great international law program. Yuri cares deeply about the client’s needs and will dig as deep as possible into the research to find a favorable outcome for our clients so in their time of need, they have one less thing to worry about, and they know they are in good hands at Littlejohn Law.

That is exactly what attracted me to Littlejohn law. Yuri has never seen a law office team work harder, or work as well together as the team here. Everyone treats their co-workers and their clients like family.

In his spare time, he does competitive shooting/marksmanship events, collect first edition Stephen King books, and take road trips as often as I can.
