  • Jay Marcus Tiftickjian

    Siddhartha clearly should be at the top of your list when your civil rights have been violated. He and his partner Quasir have litigated the "case of the year" twice and they are my go-to lawyers when I have questions about employment issues or need to refer a potential client on a civil rights or other related matter. I give them the highest endorsement.

  • Jesse Dan Hall

    Mr. Rathod is an expert in criminal and civil rights law. He is an outstanding attorney with years of experience. He is not afraid to take on high-profile cases or cases that involve unpopular causes. He always puts his clients first and works hard to protect their legal rights. I unequivocally endorse him.
