Highly Recommend
Anna Stathis successfully represented me against a false complaint filed against me. Through persistent, insightful letters combined with aggressive discussions with the defendant's attorney, she was able to have the complaint withdrawn. I would definitely turn to Anna Stathis again if there were another situation where I needed legal counsel.

An outstanding Attorney!
For three decades, Anna M. Stathis, Esq. has provided excellent legal assistance to me and my family. We have found that she brings legal as well as practical insight.to her cases. For example, she once represented me in a medical malpractice incident. Her persistence, legal knowledge and outstanding communication, including powerful letters and verbal discussions with the defendant’s lawyer, resulted in a substantial settlement for me. Through well thought out questions, she was able to draw out relevant and detailed information from me regarding the injury. Through the narratives she created, she proved that the medical practitioner had caused me an enormous amount of pain and anguish and that they needed to be held accountable. I always felt that she was truly fighting for me. On multiple other occasions, Ms. Stathis provided me with excellent legal counsel on employment related issues If another situation arose where I needed legal assistance, I would immediately reach out to her. I highly recommend her Mary

Thoroughness and Thoughtfulness Lead to Pleasant Encounter
I have worked with Anna M. Stathis, Esq. on two separate matters, starting in 2006. In every encounter, she was highly professional and pleasant to work with. Besides having an extensive knowledge of employment law, she is thorough and thoughtful in her work and her recommendations. I would recommend her highly.
