Dedicated lawyer
Sandy helped me with some pleadings on a malpractice case, and he was knowledgeable, responsive, and determined. He did more than he was asked to do and worked hard. He is always trying to find another way to achieve your desired result. Sandy communicates well both orally and on paper. I highly recommend him.

Winning is Everything
Mr Young was retained based on is reputation as a bulldog litigator who wins! He took on the challenge of our legal dispute with a large affluent real estate developer. Mr. Young exceeded our expectations with a another winning performance. He wins because he thoroughly studies the legal issues, encourages his client's participation and thoughts to fully absorb the facts, diligently prepares a well thought out, organized and intellectual argument, which he then clearly articulates before the court. With Mr. Young, it is not that you win some and lose some...you strive to win them all!

He and his team worked very hard for my cause and and no matter what the obstacles looked out for me. My family and I recommend the offices of Sanford F.

Sanford Young is an excellent attorney.
Mr Young represented me In a lengthy and complex litigation against a large corporation, in Federal Courts. He worked very hard on my behalf and was completely dedicated to this case, which required an enormous amount of time and research. He was highly knowledgeable with regard to the relevant law and was very articulate, both in his oral and written presentations. The case required numerous written submissions, as well as two presentations to an appeals court. I could not have asked for better representation and recommend him highly for his dedication, hard work, and integrity.

Highly experienced Appellate Attorney
Sandy Young came highly recommended to me by another attorney as one of the best in handling complex appellate cases. I am very pleased that I retained him to appeal the decision of my lower state court case. Sandy was extremely efficient in digesting the messy 5+ year record (from 3 past attorneys) and having a clear strategy on how to proceed and forthcoming on possible outcomes. He was empathetic and understanding for my situation and proved his commitment to help. I would also recommend Sandy in any legal work as he is smart, diligent and gets results for his clients.

Personal Injury Case
Few years ago I retained Mr Sanford Young to appeal an personal injury case where a former attorney failed to defend case and malpractice was involved. Mr. Sanford was very determined, supportive, aggressive, team player in defending my case and justice was done. I thank Mr Young very much for all his help. He is an excellent attorney. Best wishes!

Sanford f Young represented me & I was extremely unhappy.
Sanford f Young represented me & I was extremely unhappy. The list of things he did wrong in my opinion is too long to list here. Also when I looked up his case history in ecourts & reviewed his appellate decisions it was obvious that he does not get good results in the court systems & exaggerates falsely his results.
Response from Sanford Young July 1, 2016
I cannot figure out who you are as your description of your experience does not fit any of my matters. However, if your comments are genuine, I would hope you would contact me directly so that I can determine the problem and fix it. I try very hard to zealously and professionally represent my clients, and to be sure that my website is 100% accurate.
