Pleasant experience
I had a great experience with Sandra. She was very quick to answer my questions, and very knowledgeable in the area of employment law. If necessary, I will certainly use her again to answer my questions.

Left Me Hanging Bigtime
Flighty, unreliable, incapable, doesn’t follow through with her commitments: I’m writing the review I wish I had read before I hired her. With full knowledge of what the case entailed, she agreed to represent me up to and including a trial--signed a retainer agreement, took my money for a retainer fee. She ignored my emails and phone calls for long stretches of times. Then, without even filing the complaint, she sent me a letter telling me that she was no longer representing me, citing only her own ignorance in the legal matter. Think of it this way: Your car is broken. You call a mechanic. He says, “Yeah, I can fix that; that’s my specialty. I’m an expert in transmission repair.” You pay him. He takes your car for months. You can’t get ahold of him. When you finally do, he says, “Turns out I can’t fix it because, actually, I don’t know how to fix transmissions. But I’m going to keep your money.” Anyways, I begged her to sit down and talk to me, to explain what had changed, so that I could understand if I had a case or not, if I should find another lawyer and continue or not. She wouldn’t even give me that. She left me hanging and for all my foresight and planning ahead, I ended up back at point zero, but now broke, unemployed, and having missed some of the statutes of limitations on parts of my claim.
