Her client roster encompasses a wide range of industries, from apparel to food, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, travel, and technology.
As a former associate at two Am Law 50 firms, Youngbin has handled numerous high-stakes cases and investigations for blue chip clients.

She regularly contributes her time to the Inner City Law Center, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that seeks justice for people experiencing homelessness. In 2022, the center recognized Youngbin as a Pro Bono champion for her efforts to help clients get their years-old traffic citations dismissed and their drivers' licenses reinstated.
