Yerrid's love for the law was born during his youth growing up in West Virginia.

"My mother was a single parent — she was my hero. She was raising me on $300 a month from her secretarial salary," he says.

"One of our highlights was watching the Perry Mason show. I always liked the drama of the courtroom and ultimately the truth coming out. I've learned since that the truth doesn't always come out, but that was the beginning of my idea that 'Wow, you can make a difference when you go in a courtroom.' Great things can happen. I wasn't sure what justice was back then, but it was the notion of fairness and having everything turn out right."
