Swapna was my Attorney for my complicated Divorce case. It was not a easy one. She really helped me in many ways. She always attended my emails, calls and attended court hearings. She was always available whenever I called her to give valuable advice and information. Knowing my financial situation she never pressured me for the attorney fee and gave ample time. It was so kind of her. She always treated me like a friend and was very caring. I am glad that I chose her as my attorney for my case.

This attorney was recommended to me by a family friend who had the same service i was seeking [Trust formation and WILL writing].
Additionally this attorney was on my employer employee legal services network. Which meant to me trust apart from dollar coverage for the services.
In 2 consultations we completed the trust and will. In first; completely answered me up. in the second; prepared the docs.
Post service period; i am still getting the needed 1) advice 2) answering the questions related to Trust & Will.
Recommendation: HIGH [Knowledgeable, Experienced, Co-operative]

Swapna is highly skilled and very easy to work with. She is an excellent professional who genuinely cares about the client and works hard to achieve the best results possible. Her knowledge, determination and professionalism ultimately led to my case end with an outcome that I was skeptical about at first!
I will recommend her to all my family and friends if the need were to ever arise.

She comes unprepared and late in court hearing. She keeps no physical documentation of court proceedings or case. She is mum during proceedings and sweating in court. If you want a lawyer where you to write every thing for court proceedings, she is your lawyer. I have fired her for non performance and delivering no results. She will be getting dates continuously with no results and making her useless bills. She has no deep understanding of American law. She claims being high court attorney in India but she may have been a follower of attorney. Stay away from her if you want peace of mind and some results. It is a pure business for her.

This is a two part review.
Dec 2014 : We went to Swapna a few days before we were travelling to India with our girl to establish a trust. She accommodated us at a very short notice. She understood our requirements and gave us good advise. After preparing all documents, she went over all documents and articles mentioned in the document.
Her office immediately scanned and emailed us the copy of signed documents.
Aug 2016 : Needed an amendment to the trust and her office talked to me about it on phone, setup an appointment with Swapna. Again, it was a quick and easy appointment.

I am the client for Swapna Anthoor who helped me with my divorce settlement. Swapna Anthoor is Professional and Caring. Swapna Anthoor is an extremely talented, knowledgable, and helpful attorney. Her greatest attribute is her professionalism and the care and attention that she provides. With her friendly and patient demeanor, she makes me feel calm and respected. Swapna listens to her clients and takes the time to clearly and simply walk them through their legal process detail by detail to insure the client understands and feels comfortable. She works on creating the best plan of action for your personal needs. Swapna is professional and honest when working with her clients and she and her staff is always attentive to client calls and questions. When a client is going though such traumatic and confusing legal situations, Swapna is the best choice to represent them professionally and with care and detail.

Swapna is a good human but looses her judgemental capabilities in cases where the client herself/himself is in a very nervous state or with lot of anxiety. On phone consultation there appears to be detachment and prejudice and bias to the case being discussed based on her past experiences. A lawyer is supposed to see each case independently. On personal meeting, she seems to get nervous and complains she has to put in more time and effort for complicated ones and hence is not sure.
We did not get any confidence and instead she made it more tense by complains of difficulty and lack of time on her side.
I recommend her for only simple and straightforward cases. If you are in a emotional dilema or any complication that also involves divorce and international waters, i do not recommend her. Also visit her only if you have figured out your stuff so that she can execute your suggestions and not complain of it being difficult.

Swapna is extremely responsive, very knowledgeable, smart efficient and thoughtful.
I've found myself in a unfortunate situation and had contacted her After contacting Swapna about my situation, questions, and concerns, she left me with a peace of mind. She works beyond the call of duty She has been a consummate professional, extremely responsive, very knowledgeable about every aspect of CA divorce laws and procedures , and most importantly, she cared about me and my situation personally Because of my situation she didn't even charged me also.
I would strongly recommend Swapna to anyone looking for an attorney.

We had a very good experience working with Swapna Anthoor. She was able to explain everything associated with creating a living trust. Her office is self-sufficient and soon she will be getting a notary license which will speed things up even more! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to create a living trust.

Swapna was my third attorney whom I hired and I am so glad that I found her. I don't want to discriminate but she being an Indian, I found her to be extremely Ethical, Knowledgeable and Down to Earth and that's what I liked about her. And me being an Indian too and especially not knowing any of the legal system here, she understood exactly where I came from and was able to comprehend with me. After almost 2.5 years of ordeal, Swapna finally helped me get through the difficult phase of my life smoothly. She helped me get through process of divorce and child custody and helped me get my rights with patience, honesty and compassion towards me. I was at the risk of loosing my 5.5 yr old son's custody last year but she made sure that that didn't happen. She made the opposing counsel to come to all the agreements and she finally got me the judgment that I needed. She is extremely sincere and she knows what she is doing. She also has good credibility with the judge in the Alameda Family Court. My ex was emotionally abusive, manipulative, extremely controlling and I had been married to him for 7 years. I had no self-confidence or self-worth and was at the end of my rope. When I talked to Swapna for the first time, in such a long time, I felt I was worth something .It was worth fighting for because she listened to me - really listened and advised me every step of the way. She is completely on my side. I felt empowered because I learned I had rights I didn't even know I had. She is truthful and did not sugar-coat my situation.
She still continues to represent me in the court. I hope and pray no one should go through the ugly process of divorce and God Forbids fight for child custody but if at all that happens to anyone of you out there I highly recommend her. Definitely consult her once before you hire anyone else. I am very grateful to her and will be in her debt for the rest of my life! Thanks Swapna for everything!
