“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 feel so grateful that I found Sanford Heisler Sharp. This was my first experience retaining an attorney, and after being terminated from my job during COVID, I was shocked and devastated. When I first spoke to Alok Nadig at Sanford Heisler Sharp, he listened to me carefully and responded with empathy. He answered every question I had with thorough detail. I knew he was the right choice.

Throughout the entire process, Alok was so responsive, kind, understanding, and proactive. He is incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable, and simply an all-around superb advocate. At times, this process was emotionally draining, frustrating, and confusing. It can be hard to revisit a painful experience, but Alok was always there to provide clarity and support. He never invalidated my feelings or concerns; he never condescended to me or belittled me; and he believed in my case. He is an exceptional lawyer whom I have tremendous respect for, and I feel very fortunate that he represented me. My interactions with other attorneys and legal support staff at Sanford Heisler Sharp were also excellent. It's clear they have assembled a great team.

It is tempting to shrink away from situations where you've been wronged, but if you have the right representation, you'll find the fortitude to face the challenge. My advice to anyone seeking representation is to find a firm that makes you feel empowered, and in my experience, Sanford Heisler Sharp is equipped to do that. They will be there for you and fight for you. A Former Client

I contacted David Sanford at Sanford Heisler Sharp after I was suddenly terminated from my executive role after twenty-three years of service. I shared my story with David, Meredith, Alok and Alex. The company culture had always been hostile towards women. I was one of the very few women in an executive role. I survived by keeping my head down and consistently outperforming my male peers but was suddenly replaced by a man I suspected was paid more to perform the same job I did. We filed claims under the Equal Pay Act and Title VII. Despite the opposition’s constant delay tactics, which was almost three years’ worth, Meredith Firetog was professional, caring, persistent and tenacious when necessary. Meredith, Alok and Alex were just the team I needed to battle the good ol’ boy culture that resonated throughout the private family conglomerate.A Former Client, President & General Manager

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
