Virgil Yanta Sr.

Overview

It takes an aggressive, smart and strong attoney, who knows how to gain access a fair court and jury for his client, to ensure that such seemingly overwhelming needs are met quickly, intelligently and properly. Texas truck wreck lawyer Virgil Yanta Sr. is just that man.

By aggressively battling for his clients as a competent, conscientious yet caring Board-Certified (in Personal Injury Trial Law, Texas Board of Legal Specialization) lawyer, and with decades of varied experience gained all over the Lone Star State, attorney and counselor Virgil Yanta Sr. has earned the trust of untold numbers of victims and their loved ones — many in their darkest hour.

“With tremendous success, for decades I have helped victims of automobile accidents of every kind – and from many states – piece their lives back together and get the large settlements that make for full justice. Since 1987, I have been Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and have decades of experience in successfully recovering ‘generous’ settlements and verdicts for deserving victims of auto accidents.

“Because I, Virgil Yanta, personally will handle your case, you will benefit directly from my well-known reputation as an aggressive, competent and zealous advocate, and can expect the very best results by having me at your side. I’ve been there before; let me show you how the Yanta Law Firm and I can be there for you, too – and help you and your family rebuild the lives left shattered by such a tragedy. You deserve the full justice and secure future that I’ll battle to get you.”

“I go anywhere my clients need justice – and my focus is on South Texas: San Antonio, Laredo, Eagle Pass, Del Rio, Crystal City, Freer, San Diego, Alice, Falfurrias, Hebbronville, Corpus Christi, McAllen, Edinburg, Brownsville, Harlingen, Rio Grande City, Roma and the entire Rio Grande Valley. However, no place is too distant.”

Testimonials & Client Thank You Letters

I have used Virgil Yanta for several legal matters one was as simple as getting an old ticket that had turned into a warrant dismissed; now he's currently working on a personal injury matter. His attention to detail is impeccable and the way he works a court room is unmatched. He is very compassionate and an all-around great guy. I will continue to use him every chance I get.

Shawn S.

Fellow Attorney
I contacted Virgil Yanta after my family and I were involved in a vehicle accident back in late 2016. The qualities I look for in an attorney are intelligence, professionalism, very knowledgeable, humane, and helpful. Mr. Virgil Yanta possessed each of these qualities. He was very supported and always offered helpful, constructive advice. Mr. Yanta consulted and supported us every step of the way!
