Fallon Yaldo

Attorney

“Knowing that my clients have put their trust in me during some of the most difficult times in their lives is what drives me as a litigator.”

-Attorney Fallon Yaldo

I began practicing medical malpractice law shortly after completing law school in 2010. Since that time, I’ve tried numerous cases in courtrooms all over the state of Michigan. I have experience handling malpractice cases of varied issues including unrecognized surgical injuries, delays in the diagnosis of various medical conditions, ectopic pregnancies, birth trauma and IV injury cases, to name a few. I also have a great deal of experience with a multitude of nursing home negligence issues, including claims of wrongful death. I am well-versed in the litigation process, as I’ve handled cases from start to finish, including through the appeal process. I pride myself on being thoroughly prepared through each step of every lawsuit.

I understand that being involved in a lawsuit is a new experience for most, so I approach each client with patience, honesty, and understanding. Every one of my clients has suffered injury, and the fact that they have entrusted me to seek justice on their behalf is an honor. I consider it a privilege to get up every day and advocate for those who have been wronged. My promise, always, is to use my skills and experience to obtain the best possible outcome for my clients.

Former Employer

Fallon, I just wanted to privately compliment you on a job well done for your client at mediation. I think you maximized her recovery in view of the limitations imposed by the case evaluation award; you very likely prevented her from incurring case evaluation sanctions. You counseled your client wisely and compassionately and it was a privilege to be a witness to your professionalism.

Mediator

During a very sensitive and personal malpractice case, I had the pleasure of Attorney Fallon Yaldo representing me. Fallon is a determined attorney that really listens to her clients. I felt that she actually cared about my case and put time into listening to every single concern I had. She then developed a plan with me while keeping me updated every step of the way.

Taylor C., former client

Fallon was amazing with my case. She kept me informed with everything that was happening and the outcome was pleasing.
