I initially met Svetlana working a complex Federal case as a linguist. I was instantly impressed by her intelligence, attention to detail, and attitude. As I got to know her better working other cases, I was impressed increasingly more by Svetlana's sharp mind and professionalism. However, I believe that her most impressive qualities are the immense capacity for understanding each individual case on a deeper personal level and unmatched tenacity -- for Svetlana there is no such thing as giving up; she will carry on and find ways to prevail in a case by the time many attorneys would have given up. I have since recommended Svetlana to multiple clients and personally used her services. Without any hesitation I recommend Svetlana Shirinova as a first-class attorney and an outstanding human being.

Svetlana helped us with some employment law violation stuff - my wife had some rather serious problems with her ex-employer. And I'm pretty sure that without Lana's help it would be rather hard to deal with it. She is extremely professional, but besides that she is really willing and ready to help - I had to call to her several times after an appointment and all the time Svetlana was able to spend her time to help me with my questions.
There is also another thing I really want to mention - she is a great human being - compassion and very responsive. Person who understand that this stuff is very important for people in trouble - not an artificial "courtesy", but true compassion. And I would like to say a very big "Thank You" to her for that...

I would set 6 stars if I can... Svetlana did a terrific job with my wife's car accident claim. She is professional & serious, got the ball rolling immediately and made sure to keep us informed during every step of the process. She answered all our questions promptly (including after hours) and fought for us every step of the way. Svetlana went above and beyond for my family and done outstanding job on negotiation with the insurance company to get the most $$$$ for our pain and suffering.
