    I worked with Sana in the trial group at a large, international lawfirm and again several years later as an employment lawyer at SLN Law. Sana is an exceptional attorney who cares deeply about her clients. She is smart, compassionate, and tough — a rare and necessary combination for a successful lawyer. She is a seasoned litigator and employment lawyer, who has a rich understanding of the law and a dogged commitment to getting justice for her clients.

    I worked with Sana for five years at SLN. Sana is extremely bright, empathetic, creative, and insightful. She forges empathetic and positive relationships with clients and opposing counsel alike, yet advocates zealously, achieving tremendous results. I highly recommend Sana.
