Ms. Sands was working at a desk at another law firm when I signed in to discuss my employment case with her. She quickly told me to leave all my evidence with her and call her after one week. When I did call, I was told that there was no record of my visit, my material was not there and Ms. Sands was no longer working there. They did give me a telephone number to contact her.
Ms. Sands was annoyed that I telephoned her. She said she would send me my material (which she did), but left a lasting impression on me by what she said before hanging up: "You had better never call me again or else!"
I was reminded of this two years ago when I viewed The People's Court. Ms. Sands, the defendant, won the case, but her typical disregard for her client was very evident. You can view the transcript by putting Sandra Mara Sands The People's Court into SEARCH.
Additionally, Sandra Mara Sands had her license to practice law in New York suspended in February, 2011. You can see all of the references by putting Sandra Mara Sands Suspended into SEARCH.

I would DEFINATELY NOT reccomend this firm to my worst enemy. They are the most RUDE, INCOMPETENT law firm i have ever come in contact with. You will never be able to get in touch with Sandra and her staff acts like they are doing you a favor even just answering the phone. TERRIBLE all the way, not 1 good thing to say. I wish i'd looked her up before hiring her!!

I experienced almost identical problems as previous reviewers. Never available, they never know what is going on with your particular case, call back time is horrible. Overall bad rating, would never use again or recommend
