"The Women on the Move Luncheon is one of the greatest honors for Houston-area businesswomen," says Vinson & Elkins Managing Partner, Joe Dilg.

Yeates has been head of the Vinson & Elkins’ appellate section since 1991, a group that now boasts over two dozen lawyers. She was named one of America’s Top 50 Litigators in The National Law Journal in 2001.
