I choose to have Ms. Sachdev represent me after reviewing the Avvo ratings and also from our initial consult. I am a father was attempting to be with my child. While it is true my case should be easy and straightforward it was clear early on that opposing counsel did not want it to be this way. I was hopeful that when we were bullied Ms. Sachdev would aggressively attempt to protect my rights and stand up for me, however too often it just seemed she took the approach "give them whatever they want." When I pushed back I often found she was reluctant to take the otherside on. I am open to always hearing a different strategy but I did not like that often I had to ask what are the options rather then being presented them upfront. In addition there was a delay in one crucial piece that resulted in a delay in my case that ended up being costly for me. I eventually did seek new counsel because I just felt I was not being protected.

My divorce was seven years ago, so it's high time I provide a review on Puja Sachdev. At the time, she was working at another firm. I came into things completely confused, facing a spouse who did not want to respond to legal documents or initially get an attorney. I had to get through all of that - eventually needing to work with the lead attorney, Puja and others to draft a full settlement agreement for response. I was "lost" in the process a lot of the time, and whenever I was lost Puja was there to explain things in detail and put me at ease. She was who I always turned to for an explanation I could understand and discuss. I cannot tell you how important this was to me - and I expect to you or anyone else. I'm an educated guy, but this stuff can get confusing and some of it just doesn't make any sense at all. So having someone in your corner to put you at ease and help you along can make ALL the difference - in your legal case and in your frame of mind.
Like I said, it's been years now, but I so appreciate Puja's help, that I just referred her to a friend and just had to add this review to her list. Thank you, Puja. I really appreciate your help.

Ms. Sachdev expertly guided me through a high conflict divorce and custody case. She gained my trust by advising me on options and supporting my choices. In my opinion, an attorney should listen, advise, and act in the best interests of their client, and Ms. Sachdev possesses all of these qualities. Her ability to calm and advise a client under pressure and stress is admirable. She took care of me as a whole person, not just a client; I never felt like I was just another client. She answered all my questions- which I had many. After nine months of litigation I finally have my peace back. I think some forget that law and the Court system takes a tremendous toll on the person, but not Ms. Sachdev. She is truly an exceptional attorney.

Although we were going through mediation, I was losing faith in the mediator, and wanted to have someone I could consult with. Puja filled that role. She was very personable, offering advice and empathy. She has a good understanding of family law, and offered practical advice. She assisted me in reviewing the settlement and papers, and also walked me though some situations surrounding the divorce. She was reasonable with her billing, and was prompt in returning messages and questions. Her assistant was also very helpful, following up after consultations and passing on my questions to Puja. If I had it to do over, I would have just used her instead of a mediator.

I worked with Puja and her team for my divorce case. The professionalism shown by Puja throughout the case proceedings was great. She's available to answer your queries and provide sound advice. I also liked their web interface by which you can access all the document and have transparency in the billing.

I hired Ms. Sachdev to help me attempt to get a modification to my spousal support agreement. From the first consultation, I was pleased with Puja's professionalism and intelligence. She listened to the full history that I had compiled and competently walked me through the process. During negotiations and communications, she and her staff were always prepared and demonstrated full command of the issues being discussed. I always felt as if she had a long-term strategy and was impressed at her ability to maintain focus when issues arose that could be distracting. She also demonstrated some very useful insight into the opposing attorney's motives and tactics that showed her years of experience in the system.
In short, I could not recommend Puja Sachdev highly enough. I have had interactions with several other attorneys and she is by far the best that I have experienced.

Puja really listened to what I wanted to get out of my divorce. My focus was the best outcome for my son, and that meant his father and I having a positive relationship for years to come. Puja constructively guided me through the process, my rights, and my options. She made sure I ended up with an agreement that was beneficial to our son and took care of me individually.

Puja Sachdev is an excellent and professional lawyer who does the best for her clients. She does not help her clients because is her job, but because is her passion to help others. She helped me with child and espousal support, divorce, and child custody. She did an amazing, professional, and ethical job. She considered all the time what was best for my and my children. I highly recommended her, she is an amazing lawyer.

I cannot speak highly enough of the family law practice (Sachdev Legal), both Puja Sachdev and Andrella Gonzalez are two of the most professional , knowledgeable and detailed lawyers I have retained and dealt with. My marriage was a long term marriage of some 18+ years; this situation was slightly unique in the fact that I had put a significant amount of separate property into the marriage. Puja and Andrella gave excellent and professional advice on how best to represent and protect my asset value. There was a significant amount of detailed work that had to be done in compiling financial information. Both Puja and Andrella did excellent work in preparing legal documentation and positioning my case as strongly as possible. We successfully got to a good divorce settlement via the mediation process. Puja was extremely supportive, helpful, and the voice of reason throughout mediation process. Divorce is one of the most difficult and emotionally stressful processes any person has to go through . Puja , Andrella, and the para-legal Heather Dermody were always available to talk and offer good advice, addressing all the difficult aspects of divorce ; child custody , financial issues, child support, spousal support , what to expect in the divorce process-- etc. I would highly recommend the legal practice of Puja Sachdev !
