Columbus, Ohio Attorneys - Bergman & Yiangou Legal Representation


After long and distinguished careers as solo legal practitioners, our founding attorneys Andrew Yiangou and Robert D. Bergman decided to combine their resources and knowledge to establish the Columbus Law Firm of Bergman & Yiangou in 1998. The founders had worked together for over a decade on many legal matters prior to the firm’s official formation. Both attorneys provided affordable legal services to ordinary citizens in the Columbus, Ohio area, preferring to help people over corporations, government and big business.

With this shared common philosophy and healthy working relationship, these experienced attorneys decided to join forces. The Bergman & Yiangou Law Firm began with two small offices and a part-time secretary in Columbus, Ohio. The firm has grown considerably and currently has three convenient legal offices and staff in the surrounding Columbus area to better serve their clientele. These offices are located at:

  • 3099 Sullivant Avenue
  • 2020 Brice Road
  • 3805 North High Street

Bergman and Yiangou remain true to the founders’ philosophy of representing ordinary citizens and have refused to take on large corporate clients or represent government interests.
