Ryan Hayes

     After attending Florida State University and receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Communication, Ryan fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming an attorney by graduating from Stetson University College of Law. While there, he was a member of the school’s nationally renowned Trial Advocacy Program. Ryan began his legal career working for several statewide civil trial defense firms, representing many industry leaders in the insurance, hotel and restaurant industries. During this time, he saw how little attention was given to those who were injured through no fault of their own and wanted to make a difference.

     Having spent several successful years on the defense side of the law, he decided to take up the good fight with the largest Plaintiff’s law firm in the Country where he practiced for six years serving individuals and families throughout the state of Florida.

     With his law-firm, Ryan wants to give a more personal approach to the clients that he works with. Fewer clients means more personalized attention to those individuals he represents. Ryan enjoys meeting clients, their families, and coming to understand their personal issues.  Such an approach is nearly impossible when balancing hundreds of cases at a large firm. Ryan and Albert founded the firm on the belief that detailed attention to the individual client should carry on throughout every stage of their representation. Don’t believe that?  Try calling or texting either of them on their cell phones right now. Unless they are in a hearing (or driving), you will be speaking to them when you call.

     While fighting for those who have been injured, Ryan has successfully gained the reputation as a trial lawyer to be feared. His accomplishments have been recognized locally and nationally with the most recent of those being named as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the United States by the National Trial Lawyers. Ryan is at home in the Courtroom and has had numerous successful trials throughout Central Florida. Insurance companies know they will have a fierce adversary should they meet Ryan in trial.

     As a son, husband, and a father, Ryan values his family and knows that when someone is injured through no fault of their own, that individual’s family suffers as well. With an aggressiveness that is unrivaled and an understanding that his clients have put their lives and future into his hands, Ryan will not rest until those that have injured them are held accountable for their actions.

Albert Yonfa Jr.

     Born and raised in Orlando, the Bishop Moore graduate attended Stetson University in Deland, earning his degree in Business Management. He has since been a guest speaker for the elite business department for several years. While attending the College of Law at St. Thomas, Albert was elected Justice (President) of the Phi Alpha Delta Honorary Society by his peers for two years in a row and finished his academic career on the Dean’s List.

     Upon returning to Central Florida, Albert worked for a prestigious insurance defense firm. A year after his arrival, the firm was named in Forbes Magazine as a top ten law firm in the Southeastern United States. After learning the ins and outs of insurance defense, Albert saw an intriguing opportunity at a young, up and coming personal injury firm, which, during his tenure, grew to become one of the largest and well-known in Orlando and across the state of Florida. Albert took great pride in working to make that firm grow, but the chance to do things his way lead to the creation of Yonfa Hayes P.A.

     The idea behind Yonfa Hayes was simple. Take the lawyers who work behind the faces on the billboards, bring that talent together, and make something new, something boutique, and above all…something personal.  Albert and Ryan sought to give clients the best of both worlds; Mega-lawfirm attorneys with personal access to that attorney at any time day or night. The Yonfa Hayes law firm is organic, growing to the needs of each individual client’s case, not a factory with quotas, not fast-food law. Stay small and product quality stays high.

     Albert was named among Florida’s Super Lawyers for 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.   

     Albert has earned a reputation as a peacemaker and is, professionally, happiest when standing in front of juries at trial on behalf of his clients. Albert’s passion is helping people in their time of need.  He believes that when professionals treat clients like family, very good things happen.
