Sharp, thorough, and kind.
Sankeetha "hit the ground running" with the documents I needed reviewed, combing through both thoroughly and quickly to pick out and cover all necessary bases for my situation at hand. At the same time, she allowed time and space for all of my questions so that the process didn't feel rushed, and to be sure I had everything sufficiently answered. I greatly appreciate her expert, honest, and kind help.

Excellent Business Etiquette
The Selverajah Law firm was rapid to respond regarding all inquiries. During the confabulation, the Attorney showed me how well versed they were in their field. I'm from Upstate and was still treated with respect from a firm with upper tier credibility. The Selverajah Firm will be a lifetime affiliate and my go-to for all business needs. With gratitude from Syracuse's own C.T. LLC...

Consulting Agreement Review
Sankeetha was very quick in her response and evaluation of a time-sensitive consulting agreement I has been offered. It was my first contract as a sole proprietor, and I appreciated the attention Sankeetha provided and time she took to walk me through each section of the agreement. I learned a lot during the process and would recommend her to other budding businesses.

Highly Recommend
Sankeetha has been amazing throughout my journey of getting my new business established. I am a new business owner, and with all her work, help and guidance, from my business structure, to important contracts, and amazing detailed business advice, because of Sankeetha my business is now in the place and stage I’ve always wanted and needed. I now have a better understanding of my business needs. Since my initial consultation with Sankeetha, she has always been very informative, patient and understanding. Her communication is great, everything I’ve had a question for, she’s always given me detailed answers to ensure I fully understand, and am prepared for the future. She’s always been very attentive and honest, since day one. Whether you’re a new business owner like myself who needs guidance and to get their business off the ground, or someone who already has an established business, I highly recommend Sankeetha. You will NOT be disappointed.

star only review
I did not hire the attorney. I explained my case via email. The attorney responded to my email after reading through the case and provided a referral who I ended up working with. I had spoken to several lawyers and found that her referral was the best option for the matter. I found that the attorney is helpful to clients and has a general interest in helping people.

Executive Director
Working with Sankeetha has been seamless, punctual, productive and informative. She is assertive, clear and does not hesitate to further explain herself so that the lines of communication are clear and effective. As a business owner I look for these qualities in a lawyer and any business owner/associate will benefit from a partnership/relationship with Sankeetha!

Had Answers To ALL Questions
I am SO glad I got introduced to Sankeetha and her team. I was in need of contracts and systems baddd. I explained what my process was and they advised me on best practices and saved me tons of headaches with one of my policies. If you need contracts, need to review what you already have in place or have questions in general, they can help.

Sankeetha is a TOTAL game changer!
Sankeetha's help has been a total game changer in my business! From the start, she has had a desire to understand our services and market in an intimate way so she can protect us by pointing out potential weak points. She is incredibly inquisitive, asking the questions other attorneys never did. Working with Sankeetha is so much more than NDAs and other legal documents -- she makes sure that all our processes are structured in a way that protect the company as well. As the company evolves, her advice expands. While Sankeetha is a lawyer, she has so much heart too -- a woman who is so passionate about her work and helping businesses grow. When issues arise, I trust her advice implicitly but she also empathizes in ways that makes me feel more supported as a business owner. When she needs to interact and negotiate with others on behalf of the company I know that she is not only bringing her expertise, intense knowledge of the law, and the best interests of the company to the table, but also that great bedside manner to challenging situations. Solopreneurship can often feel lonely and overwhelming, but Sankeetha makes it easy, and allows me and my team to focus on OUR genius, knowing that she is in hers when it comes to protecting my company.

Excellent corporate attorney
I hired Ms. Selvarajah to guide me in a couple of business-establishing matters. Not only did she go above and beyond with each of these, she really took the time to understand my business at its roots and gave priceless guidance I needed to succeed. Ms. Selvarajah truly cares about her clients and does everything possible to advance their goals.
