An Experienced Advocate
After a relationship ended, I found myself in litigation -- a situation I would not willingly choose. Dividing property became impossible when my former partner adopted an extreme position and doubled down on it. Sunena helped me defend myself through many steps of the legal process. Over time, both the facts and the law came out. Although the adversarial nature of the legal system made that a slow and painful process, and I felt overburdened at times, at heart I felt confident because I had a good lawyer and the truth on my side. Sunena is very busy, but knew how best to employ her time and skill to resolve the matter, and where to place both our energy. She understood my situation, the outcome I needed, and demonstrated when it counted that her commitment to advocacy, safety and integrity on behalf of her clients is real. On top of that, she's a fun and interesting person with fighting spirit. In the end, Sunena was able to avoid trial and achieve a financial outcome for me that was significantly more than I originally envisioned. Given the circumstances, that felt very just, and I am grateful.

Excellent Human Being
A close friend of mine hired Sunena in his divorce case. He was highly impressed by her Honesty, Ethics, Hard work and Professionalism. Very few attorneys are respected the way she gets respect from her clients.

Excellent family law attorney!
I am currently represented by Sunena in a family law matter and I am extremely impressed with her substantive knowledge, strategic ability and the deep compassion that she holds for her clients. Although Sunena is extremely busy, she somehow manages to make sure she is on top of all things related to her client's cases. Moreover, I appreciate the fact that she definitely tries to address issues with honey, before vinegar, so to say, which is extremely helpful given the naturally contentious nature of family law. Without reservation, I would recommend Sunena for any family law matter in the Bay Area counties. I am currently represented by Sunena and I've been extremely happy with her work. I am also an attorney and I can professionally attest to the quality of her legal skills and knowledge, as well as her high level of compassion and care that she has for her clients. I strongly recommend her.

This attorney has so much more to offer than even meets the eye!
I have worked on a lengthy case where Sunena Sabharwal was brilliant in her strategy. She has a stellar work ethic and was always on top of every task, every court date, every issue, and never missed a beat as so many attorneys are known for just "letting things slip". Her dedication to the "cause" not the "case" is what allows her to stand out. She cared about what the actual story was, and worked to really brainstorm how everyone could resolve issues; she cared about safety and wellness of all parties through the whole case. She cared so much about the children. She is just the hardest working lawyer I have seriously ever met, but what stood out about her the most....was our first meeting. She was totally listening and furthermore interested. She was busy, but in no way did she rush me, or finish my sentences as so many attorneys do. She sat back and actually cared about my story. She consulted with me, and she made herself literally very available, which is almost unheard of in dealing with an attorney in this situation. She dedicated herself to each and every issue, and won each issue beyond anything I thought was possible. She is so unique and so worth meeting for consultation, you will know right when you meet her. I have met so many lawyers (MANY!) and never anyone that even comes close to the work that Sunena Sabharwal does, or , to the integrity as a person that she walks with. This is an attorney who practices the law with a human-factor always present. This helps an individual remember who they are, feel strength when they are with her, and know that she can be trusted at all times to be ethical.
