Mrs. Sookdeo was an amazing lawyer through my whole divorce process. She is clear and direct, doesn't go in circles. knows what she is talking about and doing. my ex-husband is in state prison and she did everything to finalize my divorce in a timely matter.

I received a speeding ticket by a police officer who decided that passing a slow car all while traveling the same speed as other cars around you is considered bad. I am not saying I wasn't speeding, but what I am saying is everyone else was speeding too. Why he picked my little Nissan out of the crowd I do not know. I was going to just deal with it, but then I remembered that I have ARAG through my job which is legal insurance. I went to the website and chose a lawyer from a list of people. I picked Shumika Sookdeo because I recognized her from Yelp as a pop up advertisement. I checked the review (only one) And decided why not. Shumika is stern, blunt and to the point, but still manage to somehow come across as friendly and trusting. The only slight issue I had was that after she went to court for me, I wasn't contacted within a week. I did call, however and her secretary provided me with the information right away. I still have to pay the ticket, but charge was downgraded to coasting. This means no points on my DMV record. Yay. Thanks.

I had previously dealt with a different lawyer for my divorced and child custody but as child custody issues arise I sure knew I didn't want to keep previous lawyer. I looked around and Shumika was one of the lawyers I seeked advice with she was very helpful and am glad I decided to hire her. Don't hesitate to hired her she is one of the best lawyers when it comes to family law. I will continue to keep her as my future lawyer if any further issues arise

Shumika was excellent in handling my divorce. She made the process go as easily as possible (considering the nature of divorce). She helped guide me through not only the legal process, but also the emotional side of dealing and negotiating with my ex-wife. In the end, I know that it was her knowledge, experience, and tenacity that helped me get what I needed the most; primary custody of my child. She also helped to limit alimony payments and shortened the time-frame of those payments. I was able to keep ALL of my retirement too.
I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking divorce to first meet with Shumika for a consultation. You will not regret it!

Shamika got my ticket down to an infraction, I don't know where I'll be without her... She's the best lawyer I could have Possibly get. 10 out of 10. Her clients come first.

I am extremely grateful to attorney Shumika Tyrelle Robinson Sookdeo for her guidance, support, and generosity in helping me get through my recent child custody battle. I called Shumika because I needed help figuring out all the paperwork and procedures to make sure that I would get a fair hearing through family court. From the very beginning Shumika was generous with her time on the phone, gave me sound advice, and agreed to help me with my custody issues at a very reasonable price. She was very understanding, helpful, and efficient, and with her help I was able to get a hearing at the courthouse. After years of the court system failing me as a father and going thru some of the most sad and painful times without being able to see my kids I can finally smile again and be completely happy. Our family has so much gratitude for her personal touch and for genuinely caring about our family. After watching her in action…..Shumika is definitely the one you want on your side of the court room!

Phenomenal is how I would describe miss sookdeo. She fights hard to help you win your case. She has this great way of getting to know you and your case in depth.
Helps you learn what you need to know about everything that is going on.
If your looking for a lawyer she is the best around. She is very knowledgeable fiesty and works for you diligently.
Best lawyer and the only one I will turn to when I am in need.

I couldn't be happier with having Shumika represent me. Going into our first meeting I was nervous because I've never had to meet with a lawyer and it was for my divorce, witch is emotional to begin with. All my questions were answered clearly and Shumika made sure I had all the knowledge I needed to make the right decisions. Shumika always got back to me as soon as possible when I needed to ask her any questions, something I greatly appreciate because I'm not the most patient person. Most importantly, I felt like Shumika truly listened to me, there was not doubt that I had her complete attention whenever we were having a discussion and her true caring nature to do what was best for me put me at ease. I highly recommend Shumika Sookdeo.

I was referred to Mrs. Sookdeo by a friend who retained her for her divorce and was very pleased by the representation she received. Firstly, Mrs. Sookdeo was very attentive and patient. She took her time to understand my situation and then thoroughly explained the options available to me regarding my criminal case. I appreciated that she didn't lie to me and tell me I'll get everything I wanted, but instead told me the truth and that I may need to compromise to get a positive outcome. With that being said, she battled hard for me in court and was able to get my case dismissed. I was thoroughly satisfied with her work on my case and would recommend her to anyone seeking an honest, knowledgable, hard working attorney.

Ms. Sookdeo is a wonderful Attorney. She closed my case after 4 other lawyer were not able to do the job. She is a great Attorney and goes above and beyond with all her knowledge and research.
