    • I recommend Svetlana Shirinova.
    • I hired Svetlana 1-6 months ago.
    • Svetlana handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Svetlana was very helpful, knowledgeable and to the point. She gave me a clear and helpful consultation over the phone, explained my choices, risks and rights and helped me understand the real "legal" picture behind emotional storm, taking a unknown away and making the process a "business" and bringing me back in my comfort zone.
    Her responsiveness is admirable - haven't seen such a virtue in a lawyer before [in my limited experience]
    She is very fair and honest, not trying to make as much as she could off client's urgent situation - but rather is willing to go en extra mile to help her customer, and build a long lasting relationship in the end.

    • I recommend Svetlana Shirinova.
    • I hired Svetlana 1-3 years ago.
    • Svetlana handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was injured in an automobile accident two years ago and was advised to seek council from a Personal Injury Attorney. Seeing many advertisements for PI attorneys on TV , I was concerned about their real agendas in looking out for me, or themselves. My attorney recommended Svetlana Shirinova and I was very happy with her professional services and the final outcome was far greater than I had ever expected. From our first contact, until the settlement check was delivered, her knowledge of insurance companies and their desire to delay settlements, were quickly put to rest. She presented my case to the insurance company in such a way that here was no doubt that I had incurred physical injury and compensation was in order. The injury was bad enough, but to have to deal with proving my case, I could have never done it alone. I left all the work to Lana and she came through with flying colors! If you are ever considering looking for a PI attorney, please do not hesitate to consider Svetlana M. Shirinova, you'll be glad you did. Sincerely, Dr. Kirk C. Wentland, Lodi , California

    I was referred to Svetlana by a friend who had great success by her services.
    Svetlana and her team are very personable and friendly. Extremely thorough with paperwork necessary and accessible when it came to payment arrangements.
    She helped us with an immigration case and were able to obtain results and finished our case in 3 months after our application was submitted.
    She even drove from San Francisco to Sacramento to accompany us on an 8:30am interview.
