Yiesha’s 2008 Bachelor’s Degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice from UALR and her 2012 Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Henderson State University, prepared her well for law school at John Marshall Law School in Chicago. She grew up in the Delight-Antoine-Okolona, Arkansas area.
Before attending law school, she worked as a Mental Health Paraprofessional at Ascent Children’s Health Services. Yiesha’s background includes representing domestic violence survivors and working for the Cook County Department of Children and Family Services.
Yiesha was admitted to practice law in Arkansas in 2016. Her primary areas of law practice are divorce, custody, guardianships, adoptions, and criminal defense. Her experience working with children and their families from a mental health perspective, instilled in her, a sense of justice for fair family relations and it gives her a sensitive perception of the affects of the legal system on families.
Yiesha lives in Little Rock and, for three years, has volunteered as a live-in Resident Assistant for Immerse Arkansas, a non-profit dedicated to bridging the gap with homelessness for aged out foster youth and run-away and homeless youth. Her focus on family law is driven by her awareness of the family dynamics that lead to youth homelessness and delinquency.
