    Hired attorney

    I was helping the father of my grandchildren in a custody dispute. I made a payment on his behalf and was promised by Sunitha she would do specific things. Needless to say she did not do anything and we lost out on needed discovery do to the fact she did not file our interrogatories or the other motions she said she would file. All this over a 2 month period of time. I could not in good conscience recommend Sunitha to anyone after what we have experienced. Further I have a voice recording of a message she left stating she intended to do those things we discussed. I don't know how she can keep her bar number. It's clear to me now all she wanted was the money in her pocket and too bad for her client.

    Sunitha Anjilvel’s response: “In family law legal matters there is never a guaranteed outcome, and emerging issues can arise that derail a particular planned course of action. I am always up-front with clients on this point before entering into an attorney-client relationship. I am an attorney with 25 years' experience in high conflict cases in three different jurisdictions. While I can’t speak publicly to the specifics of a case, I have to make decisions about strategy and tactics. These decisions are informed by my professional assessment as to how to effectively allocate my services for maximum value as I defend against aggressive strategies from opposing parties. I believe in my clients and I fight for them.”

    I live in California and Ms. Anjilvel helped both me and members of my family with our wills. I found her to be not only professional and knowledgeable but highly intelligent and extremely patient no matter how many questions she was asked. If we have any other legal issues in the future I will not hesitate to contact her.

    I first met Sunitha about 3 years ago when I was in need of a family attorney for an extremely difficult separation. Before meeting Sunitha I had met and spoken to numerous attorneys about my case and not one of them made me feel comfortable or gave me the feeling that I could trust them to help me through this difficult time in my life. Sunitha is extremely experienced and will always tell you how things will go or could go and will never promise anything she can’t deliver on unlike other attorney’s I have met. Sunitha is very responsive and always kept me informed about my case every step of the way. I probably wasn’t the easiest clients to deal with but Sunitha stood by me and still does to this day. I would highly recommend Sunitha.

    Sunitha failed to answer my questions AT ALL, many times.
    Sometimes she didn't return my calls, at others she took a very long time.
    My case dragged from a few months to over a year, because she repeatedly asked to postpone (against my will). I suspect she was concerned about going to trial.
    Finally, she misrepresented the alternative solution. She said it was no big deal, it turned out to be costly and cumbersome.

    Sunitha Anjilvel’s response: “If this review is from a legitimate client of mine, I invite you to contact me privately to discuss any outstanding issues. While I cannot publicly speak to the particulars of a specific case I am sorry if the outcome wasn’t what you hoped. I have been practicing law for over 20 years and have seen firsthand how the pace of the legal system can be frustratingly slow and unpredictable. I always inform clients that positive outcomes are never guaranteed and then we work together to determine the best course of action. Often this involves working things out with the other party and avoiding a trial, which can save thousands of dollars in legal fees. But regardless of the chosen course, I fight hard for my clients. The two matters I took to trial in 2014 both resulted in positive outcomes.”

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    I have worked with Sunitha to review the terms of the children visitation and support after relocating from another state. She was really upfront about all the pros and cons of changing the registration of the divorce decree from another state, as well as possible costs involved.
    And talking about costs, I have never felt rushed as she always took in consideration the time it took to get acquainted with me as a client and as a human being. I have never felt I was just another case number or that I had to rush because the clock was ticking.

    She is honest and relatable. I have worked with other lawyers before. Both for my business and for the divorce, and she was the only one with whom I felt I was a person, not just a client. My other lawyers would pushed me around with assistants and paralegals. With Sunitha, you will talk to her and no one else.
    I can say quite honestly I highly recommend her, which I had the opportunity to do. My friend has hired Sunitha for her divorce and she is also extremely happy with Sunitha's service and support.
    I wish all lawyers were like her.

    I was referred to Sunitha by friends and couldn’t be more pleased. She is very responsive and knowledgeable. She understood the law as it applied to my situation and handled it assertively and effectively. I feel fortunate to have found such a great lawyer and recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for legal help.
