  • I could not have done this alone

    “From the first conversation with Schwanda Rountree and her team, Candelaria Barrera-Mejía and Paul-Winston Cange, I felt heard. They actively listened to me and asked amazing questions that opened the space and I felt heard and respected. They did not let me off the hook and dug into the details as if we were all a team driving towards the same strategy and outcome. During the most challenging aspects of the case, this team showed up for me and my family, and I am forever grateful.

     

    Being supported by Sanford Heisler Sharp made it feel like a smoother process. I have felt blessed and supported by the work that they do for executives like me.

     

    We reached a settlement that worked for all parties. I have a plan for my future, and I could not feel more at peace with the outcome.”

From the first moment we spoke on the phone I felt all of the support and validation I had been missing and you made me feel strong enough to go through with this process. Every step of the way I felt deeply listened to, like you prioritized giving me all of the information, and empowered to make my own decisions. While the results of the settlement were of course exciting, just having you believe me and dedicate so much time and effort to fight for me gave me all of the closure I was looking for.

Throughout the process, Christine and Kelsey communicated frequently, providing us with updates as soon as they were received. Their team never made us feel like a burden when we emailed or called with questions.

  • I Highly Recommend Them!
    “The Sanford Heisler Sharp team is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. My experience with them began on Labor Day, when I decided I could no longer tolerate the terrible retribution from my company. I had worked for the company for several decades and last year I decided to formally request compensation equivalent to that of my male peers. My request was denied, and the retribution began.

    On Labor Day I sent an e-mail to Sanford Heisler Sharp, and to my pleasant surprise David Sanford answered me in a few hours. We also spoke on the telephone and began to plan our strategy. The team assisted me in dealing with the resulting escalated company retaliation until my case was resolved in my favor. They were always available when needed and were very respectful and sensitive to the emotional and physical damage I was experiencing.

    Today I am enjoying the happiest times of my life and I owe much of my happiness to Sanford Heisler Sharp. I highly recommend them!”

My team at Sanford Heisler was responsive, understood the complexities of the case, and understood my position and they put forth amazing effort. Their legal skills, and knowledge, allows them to handle the most intricate employment issues. Not once did I have to contact the firm for an update on how my case was progressing. I was informed every step of the way. I was in awe of the firm’s command of employment law. Amazed at their available resources and sense of obligation to fight for the rights of the individual. I always felt that my case was of the utmost importance to Sanford Heisler. The firm works tirelessly to ensure justice prevails and that you receive the best possible outcome under the law. I worked closely with Attorney Michael Palmer and Attorney David Tracey. They not only handled the litigation but sheltered me from the “hired bullies” working for the large insurance company. I always felt prepared and protected. Attorney Palmer and Attorney Tracey were always; receptive, accessible, realistic, strategically focused on my best interest. During my litigation additional issues arose, I was always treated respectfully, and I continually received pragmatic assessments of the circumstances, and of the potential difficult process that would lay ahead. I could not ask for better representation than what I received. I was fortunate Sanford & Heisler agreed to represent me. They are by far one of the best employment firms in the country.”

I cannot emphasize enough the high moral and ethical standards of Danielle and her team. She presents all available options to her clients and advises them as needed to let them make the most informed decisions. Danielle is very empathetic, lends a comforting hand to her clients in times of their direst needs, and works tirelessly on their behalf.

    – Female Executive at a multinational company, a Former Client


    Extraordinary authenticity, perseverance, tenacity, professionalism, and expertise.
    .
    I am incredibly grateful for Ms. Ella Zheng and her team at Sanford Heisler Sharp. I met Ms. Ella Zheng through friends’ referrals in 2017. My case seemed straightforward, some would even say too good to be true. It mainly involved breach of contract by the American stakeholders in a US – China joint venture. The case was in fact very complex due to various rules in China related to retired executives at that time. Before I met Ella, I tried to retain lawyers in big international firms to represent me on this case, yet they all gave up, for various reasons, after some back-and-forth communication.
    No one around me was optimistic about the outcome of the case where I, as a Chinese national, was to litigate against an American company in the United States. However, Ella and her team demonstrated extraordinary authenticity, perseverance, tenacity, professionalism, and expertise. She made relentless efforts in communicating with me, gathering information, and implementing rigorous step-by-step work process among various stakeholders, which led to the successful filing of the case. Her swift action took the defendants by surprise. Defendants had to change their legal team multiple times to handle the matter, yet were still unable to keep up with Ella’s strategies. My case was eventually resolved successfully through mediation, ending with me getting a terrific settlement.
    It’s been over three years since my case ended, yet I still become emotional whenever I think of it. Cross-border litigation requires a legal team that not only has an enhanced level of knowledge about the specialized areas of law, but also an acute understanding and grasp of relevant rules and regulations involving foreign jurisdictions. That’s exactly what Ella and her team possess – the ability to strategically position the case, go above and beyond to find the breakthrough, and at the same time provide her clients with ample guidance and analysis, and also instill them with the needed confidence to engage in the process. At last, I want to thank Sanford Heisler Sharp for the legal representation. My best wishes to the firm.

In the entire process, I always felt I was in good hands with the representation. Every call was well prepared, and they frequently followed up as needed.

    They will be there for you and fight for you.
    .
    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.

  • Highly Effective Representation

    Highly Effective Representation
    “I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation [for] Charles Field’s highly effective representation in advancing the financial mismanagement litigation that I sought to undertake last summer. At that time I wrote an essay to your firm, describing my retirement fund manager’s chronic underperformance vs. market benchmarks, which then culminated in an abominable series of executive decisions surrounding the 2020 COVID Crash.
    I felt that I had been exploited for their management fees, and taken advantage of as a result of their negligence. By the summer, I decided I had nothing to lose by submitting the information to Sanford Heisler for review. I am grateful that it soon made its way across the country to Mr. Field. From our earliest discussions, I could tell that Charles Field understood the gravity of the mistreatment I suffered, and that he was empathetic towards my plight. I got the sense that Mr. Field would leave no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of the case.
    Charles Field’s analysis of the materials I submitted showed me that is exactly what he did. Sanford Heisler Sharp drilled down on everything and identified several unethical practices, such as investing in vehicles that featured poor performance records, yet maximized management fees. In calling out the unscrupulous behaviors and general incompetence, Mr. Field cited FINRA and finance industry standards. When I read his final brief, I knew that my interests had received the best advocacy possible.
    Going forward, I feel confident that Mr. Field and the Sanford Heisler Sharp team have given me the best shot at a successful result in litigation.”

    “Having gone through a process as lengthy as I did, I was very grateful to have Russell and his team support throughout. Since the moment I met Russell, I immediately could tell their professionalism and ethic was evident. In a city like New York City, it is not very easy to find compassionate lawyers, but I always felt I was heard and understood throughout those years. They made me feel confident about what I was fighting for, and I always felt they worked really hard for my case. They were always very responsive and extra proactive. They have a wonderful team that was always available, and sometimes Russell would even reply to my emails late and off working hours. I could not be happier to have found them, and I could not be more pleased with the outcome and results for our case. I will forever be grateful of all the efforts Russell and his team did to have made this happen.”

    Attorney extraordinaire.
    “I would like to share my experience and spread the word about my “attorney extraordinaire”, Russell Kornblith. Russell represented me and helped attain a settlement that was better than expected. As an attorney, Russell is dynamic, knowledgeable, reliable, approachable and much more. He has great communication skills and an approach which is practical and realistic. What makes Russell stand apart from others is his compassionate nature. I never felt alone. Russell stood by my side during turbulent times. There were dreary days where I would get frustrated and wanted to give up and, every single time, Russell was available to walk me through various scenarios, provide encouragement, empathize with me and always buck me up. Russell’s availability, willingness to listen and empathetic approach turned a very difficult and unpleasant process into a bearable experience. There were innumerable times where Russell would respond to my distressed emails past midnight. Knowing that I had a powerful, strong attorney standing by my side brought a huge sense of relief. During a difficult and complicated encounter, Russell came as a breath of fresh air when I was feeling extremely suffocated.”

    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!”

    “Words cannot adequately express my gratitude to Kevin Sharp and the Sanford Heisler Sharp team in Nashville. Their sound guidance, disciplined approach, expertise and overall dedication to my well-being resulted in a settlement that allowed me to leave a toxic workplace environment involving sexual harassment, discrimination, and an unwillingness to address bad behavior.
    Knowing their expertise, track record and unwavering commitment to fighting issues in the workplace, Sanford Heisler Sharp was the natural choice in representation. Not only did they help me in achieving a successful settlement, but they also delivered a message to my former employer, a large multi-national corporation, that unequal treatment and harassment of female employees is unlawful, unacceptable, and, if continued, will result in significant financial and brand reputation consequences.
    One should never find themselves a victim of harassment and discrimination in the workplace; however, if you do, it would serve you well to have Sanford Heisler Sharp on your side.”

    Sincere Passion for Their Work.
    “I could not have been more fortunate to have come across the law firm of Sanford Heisler Sharp. After a desperate search on the internet for national employment firms when employment lawyers in my own state left me incredibly disappointed, they responded in less than 24 hours, and arranged a phone conversation with Mr. David Sanford shortly thereafter. Even the young intake specialist understood the details of my case better than experienced lawyers at other firms. Throughout the process, I was impressed by the level of commitment, legal knowledge, analysis, thorough research and review, confidence, and strong document preparation by this firm. Most importantly, this is a firm that practices law ethically. What sets them apart is their sincere passion for their work – from the firm’s intake coordinators all the way up to the partners.
    The discrimination that I as a woman of color faced at work had left me emotionally and physically distressed, and I was so appreciative of their genuine empathy and concern around my health. Moreover, they are not deterred by large and influential employers, and have experience across a wide range of industries. They evaluated the merits of my case, examined the evidence and made a compelling argument that completely disarmed the defending party. At the end, I was able to get my former employer to agree to a majority of my terms in the settlement. There is a reason that this is one of the best rated law firms in the country. I am forever grateful for Mr. Sanford’s sage advice, the hard work and patience demonstrated by his team, and the final outcome of my case.”

    Thorough, professional and efficient.
    “I could not be happier with my Sanford Heisler Sharp experience. Confronting racial discrimination in the workplace was the hardest decision I’ve made in my 20+ year career. Vincent McKnight understood my situation immediately and helped me to clearly understand the pros and cons of my options. David Sanford got my former employer’s full attention and confidentially resolved my employment matter in a very thorough, professional and efficient manner. He was steady throughout the entire process and it was extremely reassuring to see him fight for me. Great attorneys who are also excellent at listening to the client.”

    Concern and understanding.
    “I worked with the team and Sanford Heisler Sharp in a class action litigation against a Fortune 500 company—a frightening thing for anyone to sign up for, let alone a middle-aged woman with more than 25 years at that same company. The care, concern, and understanding from David Sanford and the team at the firm were so supportive. They also knew exactly how to make the company pay attention, resolve the issues, and compensate the victims. I was able to leave with my dignity, my pride and a future that has been wide open with new possibilities.”

    Peace of mind.
    “I was devastated when an offer for my dream job was rescinded based on the biased opinion of a former supervisor who retaliated against me. My industry is small, and so, in addition to my deep sadness, I also felt extreme anxiety over how this retaliatory animus would continue to haunt my career. Because of Kate, Felicia and their team, I not only reached an amicable financial settlement but I also found peace of mind knowing that this person could no longer discriminate against me. I also earned the satisfaction of holding a major company accountable for condoning retaliatory behavior. I cannot thank Sanford Heisler Sharp enough for supporting me wholeheartedly and giving me solid ground to stand on again.”

    Courageous, relentless, empathetic
    Christine Dunn and the Sanford Heisler Sharp team guided me through the most complex and challenging legal process of my career when I was wrongfully terminated. Christine and her team showed that their firm is unafraid to confront powerful people with compelling arguments and hold them strictly to account. She simply will not be intimidated. Christine and her team relentlessly applied the facts and the law to achieve an equitable settlement that far exceeded my expectations. From the day I contacted the firm until the day the matter concluded, Christine Dunn showed that she was in control of the process. I always understood the plan, every question was answered in detail and every interaction with the opposite party was a model of skillful professional advocacy and legal scholarship. At the same time, Christine worked hard to help me articulate every relevant aspect of the matter, and I always felt that she was really listening to what I had to say. She always told me the truth, explained the options, and shared her best advice. If a close friend or family member ever faced a tough legal challenge in the workplace, I would refer him or her directly to Christine Dunn. No one could have done more, and no firm could have displayed more courage under pressure. I will always be grateful to Christine and to Sanford Heisler for their superb representation.”

    – Former Client


    Dream Team
    “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 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.”

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.
