A superior legal team with an unwavering dedication to their clients

“I never thought that I would ever need an employment lawyer. Unfortunately, I was incorrect. I did not know where to turn as I had just moved into a state where I had no personal connections or a strong professional network. A colleague recommended Sanford Heisler Sharp and I cannot praise this team enough. I would like to publicly honor and thank Kevin Sharp, Schwanda Rountree, Elias Schultz, Reilly Dodd, and Sydney Browne. Their professionalism, dedication to the client, and technical knowledge of the law are all key to our successful engagement. I am eternally grateful for this team and their dedication to helping me with a very difficult situation. If you need legal assistance, there is no better team.”
