Vadim is a Shareholder and Co-Owner at Licata & Yeremenko. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Vadim moved to Los Angeles with his family when he was just 11 years old. Growing up in Hollywood, Vadim was fortunate enough to meet and be friends with people of all types of backgrounds. His own status as an immigrant helped to forge Vadim's passion for helping the underprivileged people in his community.
Vadim's passion for the law stems from the stories told by his grandfather, who served as a judge in post-World War II Ukraine. Vadim earned his B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, Los Angeles and his J.D. from Southwestern Law School.
After passing the Bar, Vadim has dedicated his entire career to representing plaintiffs in employment-related matters, including unlawful discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, as well as wage and hour claims. He represents employees from a wide spectrum of industries and firmly believes that all workers deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. Vadim also represents plaintiffs in personal injury and products liability matters, striving to hold companies responsible for the harm that their actions or inactions may cause. Vadim has been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2019 and 2020.
Away from the office, Vadim loves spending quality time with his amazing wife and son, along with their pet cockatiel. He is also a life-long Lakers fan, enjoys watching movies of all types, and loves to talk about all things car-related.
