As part of Harvard’s Domestic Violence and Family Law Clinic, Ms. MacMullin represented individuals experiencing domestic violence in seeking orders of protection and provided legal assistance on a range of family law matters.

"I chose to join Sanford Heisler Sharp because of their proven effectiveness in challenging corporate power and advocating on behalf of working people. I am thrilled to be joining a team that is immensely talented and deeply committed to pursuing social justice."

I was terminated from my position as a leader (Director) with a large public employer because I was a woman. The process of looking for a lawyer to represent me was anxiety provoking because a good lawyer is hard to find, and an excellent lawyer is even rarer. However, excellence is exactly what I found in Sanford Heisler Sharp.

Danielle Fuschetti was lead counsel on my case; Kate MacMullin was assistant counsel; and Stephanie Smith provided administrative support. They were my “Dream Team.” They each worked closely with me by guiding me through what to do and what not to do.

My case was not only complex because of all the types of claims I had, but we were dealing with representatives from the other side that were trying very hard to make things as difficult as possible for me. Danielle was strategic throughout the process by cutting through red tape, holding the other side accountable, and very thoughtful and persuasive in presenting my case and corresponding liability to the other side.

It is rare to find a lawyer that is of superior quality and intelligence, but that is what I found in Danielle. Although my “Dream Team” is a force to be reckoned with, at the same time, they were consistently kind, compassionate, and service-oriented when working with me. There wasn’t a moment that I didn’t feel that I was in good hands.

My case settled during the pre-litigation stages of the case. I am most thankful, grateful, and happy with the settlement they got me. I can’t think of a better group of people to work with.A Former Client

I am so grateful to have had David Sanford, David Tracey, Kate MacMullin and Alex Johnson fight for me. They never once wavered in believing in my case and helped me not only settlement wise, but also in sending the long-coming message to my firm that their mistreatment of women was no longer tolerated, nor will we stay quiet any longer. The team clearly demonstrated their expertise in employment discrimination law throughout my case. I felt that they always had my best interests at hand. They were very professional but also very good, patient listeners. And just overall good, genuine people. I used to blame myself for what happened, but now I have clarity and closure about the reality of the situation and can confidently move forward with my life and my future endeavors. A Former Client

David Sanford, David Tracey, Kate MacMullin and Alex Johnson provided me with endless support and careful guidance through one of the most challenging chapters of my career. After experiencing discrimination in the workplace, I felt helpless and afraid. The team at Sanford Heisler Sharp spoke with me for months to develop trust and share the information I needed to make a decision regarding legal representation. During this time, I never felt pressured to rush to an answer as my own interests and goals were always put first by the team.

Sanford Heisler Sharp gave me the courage to stand up for myself, and I feel extremely fortunate to have been represented by such sincere, talented and hardworking individuals. Thanks to the team, I have moved on to the next phase of my career with renewed confidence, inspiration and passion. I highly recommend Sanford Heisler Sharp to anyone navigating a similarly difficult situation. I'm so glad I went forward with the support of this group! A Former Client
