“Having committed my legal career to the fight for gender justice, I joined Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP to advocate for victims of workplace discrimination and sexual violence. I firmly believe in the power of using the law as a tool to create a more just and equitable society.”
Our commitment to securing justice and providing the best representation possible is reflected in a commitment to diversity within our own firm. At Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, we know better than to think the best attorneys look alike, sound alike, think alike, or live alike. What matters is talent, and we hire the best talent available.
As a result, our team more accurately mirrors America. Women, minority, and/or openly gay lawyers make up the majority of our staff. A passion for social justice unites our team - we all work to use the power of law to help create and enforce a more just society.
