About me

Jill Sullivan Sanford has tried cases involving gender discrimination, sexual harassment, contracts and business fraud.  In her most recent gender discrimination trial, the defendant offered to settle the case after closing arguments for more than fourteen times its highest pretrial settlement offer.

Ms. Sanford has acted as co-lead counsel with Sanford Heisler Kimpel, LLP in several class action cases, including a certified wage and hour class action against Costco, which she continues to litigate as Of Counsel to the Firm.
