“Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP dedicates tremendous resources to fulfilling its mission of leveling the playing field between workers and their employers. I chose the firm because I wanted to join a team of brilliant and zealous advocates who are committed to using their talents for the greater good.”

I'm eternally grateful to Russell, Alok and Kate for their impressive work with my case. I expected outstanding legal service based on the firm's reputation and track record. In addition, the team brought compassion and a strategic approach to managing the case, which ultimately brought a longstanding matter to a close. I've worked with numerous employment law firms in my profession, and I would unhesitatingly refer clients and friends to the team at Sanford Heisler Sharp. A Former Client
