Commitment to Success
"After experiencing a challenging situation with my employer, I reached out to a former colleague who experienced a similar situation and obtained a successful resolution through working with Sanford Heisler Sharp. He referred me to the firm, which was some of the best advice I have ever received. When I contacted Sanford Heisler Sharp, I immediately felt confident that I made the right decision. The legal team that provided counsel on my discrimination case was extremely compassionate, committed, determined, and worked tirelessly to drive the most favorable outcome I could have ever expected. Melinda was a key member of that legal team and went above and beyond to help resolve my case. Her attention to detail, which she exhibited in seeking to understand all aspects of my case, was beyond impressive. The empathy she demonstrated as well as her dedication to my success and the success of her team was apparent at all times. And her knowledge and ability to identify individual situations and behaviors exhibited by my employer that strongly supported my case clearly demonstrated her strong expertise and commitment to success. I will always be grateful for the support and counsel provided by Melinda and the Sanford Heisler Sharp team, during a most difficult time. And you could not have a more dedicated and supportive person providing counsel for you than Melinda. Thank You!"

I could not have had a better representation.
"Ms. Koster managed my case from the firm’s New York office. Words have power only when they are crafted to make a compelling story and Ms. Koster is a master of this. It takes more than just putting words on paper – to get the story to be powerful it takes an attorney who asks the right questions to get the information needed to organize the facts in the most forceful and emphatic manner. I could not have had a better representation for my case."
