    I endorse Sunitha. I have worked with her as opposing counsel and thought she was strong and professional advocate.

  • Amir John Showrai

    I have acted as a mediator in several cases now where Sunitha has represented one of the two sides in conflict. She comes prepared to every mediation, and she has always had her clients prepared to deal with what can only be said to be a difficult process. What makes her a great lawyer is the fact that although she comes prepared to litigate each case, she comes ready to make a deal too, if there is one to be had. The ability to act on a dual track like that in family law is a huge asset and one that invariably serves her clients well. Thus, I endorse this lawyer without reservation.
