YJB dates back to 1929 when Carl L. Yaeger, Sr., the firm's founder, was named a partner in the firm of Davis, Michel & Yaeger. In the 1950s, two of Carl's sons, Carl, Jr., and Bill joined the firm and soon after the name became Yaeger & Yaeger. Bill Jungbauer and Ron Barczak began working at Yaeger & Yaeger in the late 1970s. By 1985, Bill and Ron were active partners in the growing law firm and are now senior partners.
