Excellent Attorney
Mr. Nishay Sanan is an excellent lawyer, as a client I felt he was very organized, made sure I had full understanding of my case, his professional demeanor,his compassion, and ability to explain issues was outstanding.

Stands out above the rest
I was in a jam a while ago and his expertise and experience saved me from my mishap and now I have a wonderful and enjoyable life because of him. He comes out a bit aggressive but I think that’s because he knows his stuff (partially his personality too) and can back it up by saving you or your loved one. I would totally use him again as he has earned my trust for life and once you used him you will too.

Saved me from professional sabotage
Mr. Sanan was able to resolve all my matters with out harm to my reputation. His creativity in my defense caused the other-side to use his filings and theories in other matters.
