Great
She has worked for my son at his company SignatureCare. She was their lawyer for more than 5 years. I didn't get any major complaints, so therefore she must be a good lawyer.

Quick to respond, clear instructions, and a joy to work with
Uma and her team truly care about their clients, always being aware of important context, and providing clear instructions. In general, they have been very responsive and simply a joy to work with. Specifically, they helped my business partner and me with setting up an asset purchase agreement which was successfully used to purchase a business. I definitely recommend them and am looking forward to working with them again in the future.

Thoughtful and helpful
I have been working with this law group regarding an issue with a billing company I was contracted with that ended up screwing things up for my private practice. They have been wonderful in informing me of my options and following up along with working to stay within my budget and being as efficient as possible. While my case is not yet resolved, I have confidence that if it can be done, the law group will make it happen. I appreciate all their hard work.

Amazing Value
I would recommend the attorneys at Uma's firm to anyone who was looking for an intelligent attorney who cares about you and your business. Anytime I have a legal question I call one of the attorneys at her firm. I've looked at other law firms prior to finding the Oracle Legal Group. The Oracle Legal Group is a steal compared to other firms' pricing and work product!

Excellent Firm
Uma and her team are great to work with. I worked with her team on reviewing a number of contracts I had for freelance writing opportunities, as well as an employment agreement for a full-time position. The team really went above and beyond to meet deadlines, keep me updated on the progress, and help me understand the work they were doing. I would recommend them to anyone

Attentive and Highly-Competent
Uma was a last minute hire for our firm. She was very knowledgeable and is great at guiding individuals that lack a background or bandwidth in EEOC claims. A great negotiator and skilled at minimizing employment related claims.

Excellent Lawyer
The work which Uma does is amazing. I needed some assistance with a business related legal matter. Uma and the other lawyers at the firm were very honest, and forthcoming about my options. Unlike so many lawyers, these are people I feel I can really trust when it comes understanding the law. I would highly suggest this place for small or large business that needs legal assistance.

Wonderful Legal Experience
Uma is one of the best legal advisors I’ve had the chance to work with since our business was established many years ago. She went above and beyond in making sure I understood the situation I was in. She offered all the viable options and clearly explained each one very thorough. She was very knowledgeable about the law and yet was able to speak to me in terms I understood. I very highly recommend her to absolutely anyone!!
