I was dealing with a disability and my employer wrote a poor review. Supreeta to the rescue! Supreeta came highly recommended from one of the top attorneys in SF and boy was this lawyer right. Supreeta was super responsive and got back to me the same day that I contacted her. She spent a lot of time with me on the phone to get a landscape of the situation and then spent more time in person at her office. Supreeta informed me that my employer was trying to set me up for termination. And let me know that a response to this bs review was necessary. She helped me draft an awesome response letter right away.
I have worked with other attorneys and none are as friendly or responsive as Supreeta. She makes you feel like a person and not a billable hour. Hopefully I don't need another attorney, but if I do I know who to call. I would send any of my family to Supreeta for any employment matters.

I called to see if she would be the right fit for my case. Although she did not have time to take it on, she spoke with me extensively, gave advice, and a referral. I was super impressed by the time she took.

Supreeta was the epitome of professionalism and compassion--understanding of the process, supportive of me as a client, and tenacious about the details. I found her to be thorough, knowledgeable, responsive, realistic, accessible, resourceful, and tough. Should I ever again need to consult an attorney regarding labor or employment issues, or speak with someone asking for a recommendation, I would send them to Supreeta without hesitation. She turned a very difficult experience into one which reinforced my trust in others, objectivity, and the process of the law.

She reviewed our case in a thorough manner by extracting key nuances that other lawyers glossed over and showed me the reasoning and persuasiveness of her overall strategy. For example, while I was providing an overview, she would say, "wait, tell me more" about comments that had previously been overlooked as a minor exchange. After learning more, she then extracted the significance in a clear manner, each detail building on the next into a cohesive story on my behalf.
This is the kind of insight that is essential for plaintiffs in employment cases because typically the balance of power rests with the employer.
But she identified areas where we could press back and press back hard around paternity, FMLA/CFRA, stress, damages, discrimination -- and not just technically, but from the basis of what is fair and humane.
Most importantly, she was both an advocate we could trust and a compelling presence who could face-off either in negotiation or in litigation with opposing counsel.
When working with sophisticated players in high-tech, you want someone who can gain credibility and navigate the complexities...and she fit the bill.

Supreeta is a lawyer of the very highest caliber.
She helped my (new, small) firm fight a (old, huge) company that was using its legal team to intimidate us. When Supreeta took our case, she immediately eased our anxiety by explaining clearly in laymans terms how we had very good legal standing, and then taking over engagement with the other firm's lawyers - and professionally, amicably and always firmly negotiating till she reached the very best outcome for us.
For us, it was night and day. Before Supreeta, we were stressed, anxious and paralyzed. After Supreeta, we were calm, empowered and moving forward with our business knowing that Supreeta was taking care of everything (while always keeping us informed.)
I highly recommend Supreeta. She knows both the law and people really well - and that makes her an exceptional attorney.

I was being let go from a company I had invested my energy and time to make the world, the environment and our society a better place. I had become irelavent amongst a group of crony supervisors. In this world it can be extremely difficult to fight the system alone and I was at a very low point fighting depression and a well moneyed company who appeared to have all the cards until I was introduced to Supreeta Sampath.
I retained Supreeta and things changed. Supreeta is an exceptional person and a phenomenal lawyer. She reviewed my case and honestly evaluated it on its merits. She developed a winning strategy in which I was able to walk away with dignity. As a result I will be writing the chapter of my life with a heart filled with zeal. During the process she communicated with me via e-mail,phone and in person. She let me know upfront what are realistic goals could be and when we needed to readjust she did so in a very timely fashion. I was very pleased with the result and truly feel blessed having worked with her. I know that may sound crazy but it is true. She is honest,forthright,empathetic and a truly caring person who works very hard to make things right. I am grateful and wiser from my experience. She explained many things i did not know or understood about the law and will definitely learn from this experience. I highly recommend her without exception . Supreeta is the advocate you need beside you.

The Sampath Law Firm was excellent and handled my case wonderfully. I was pleased that she listened and understood my situation. She was knowledgeable and upfront with me about the merits of my case. Her firm kept me informed every step of the way. I was pleased with the outcome of the case and would highly recommend The Sampath Law Firm.

Supreeta Sampath is a hard working, dedicated and smart professional. She was very patient while trying to understand my situation. She was very honest and clear in informing me of the strengths and weaknesses of my case. Supreeta maintained excellent communication with me during the entire time. She helped me get out of an unhealthy work environment and was extremely supportive and kind to me during a stressful period in my life. Supreeta did a great job negotiating a severance package with my employer. I highly recommend her law firm and wish her all the best.

Supreeta represented me in conjunction with another lawyer on a wrongful termination case against a former employer. She had every one of my interests in mind and consistently kept me informed throughout my case. I know there was so much work she did behind the scenes as all I really got to see was her tenacity during mediations. I would certainly recommend Supreeta to anyone who is looking for a hard-working, thorough, dilligent and trustworthy employment attorney.

Supreeta was one of the attorneys that I retained to represent me on an employment issue. I was wrongfully terminated while out on medical leave. Supreeta was extremely diligent in her representation- she even set precedent with my case. In the end, my former employer did not want to go to trial and a fair settlement was obtained through mediation. Justice truly prevailed in my case- Supreeta has the knowledge and experience to take on any big corporation!
