Customer Data Security Breach Litigation, No. 16-MD-02752-LHK (N.D. Cal.),  and he  was appointed and presently serve on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in In Re Equifax, Inc. Customer Data Security Breach  Litigation, 1:17-md-2800 (N.D. Georgia), to name a few. He has also filed two class actions against Facebook for its violations of consumers’ privacy rights.Mr. Yanchunis  graduated from the University of  Florida with a Bachelor of Arts degree and received his Juris Doctorate , magna cum laude , from South Texas College of Law.   He has served as an elected member of  the Young Lawyers  Board of Governors of The Florida Bar and  the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar, and  was appointed by the Florida Supreme Court to the Florida Board of Bar Examiners which he knows serves as an Emeritus Member.  He has served in numerous committees of The Florida Bar.
