“Sana is a great attorney and even better human being!”

Sana has been my attorney for over 4 years. She has always been there for me and I cannot thank her for helping my wife and I survive one the greatest challenges a person could ever face. Sana is a great attorney and even better human being! — James S.

I have had the pleasure of receiving legal counsel from Sana in a variety of contexts over the years in dealing with corporate employment/performance-based situations. In every instance, the advice and guidance I received, and the actions Sana took to address, remediate, and/or participate in the resolution of issues and/or proceedings were expertly handled.

“She has specialized in employment law for more than 20 years and was a partner at a prestigious law firm, so has the qualifications, knowledge, and experience that many others don’t have.

I highly recommend Sana. She cared about my best interests and spent a lot of time with me explaining the process, getting information from me, listening, and helping me to be realistic. She has specialized in employment law for more than 20 years and was a partner at a prestigious law firm, so has the qualifications, knowledge, and experience that many others don’t have. Because she has been on both sides, she anticipated what my employer would do and was ready. She was thorough and spent a lot of time on my case. She was tough with the other side, but reasonable, which helped me in the end with settlement. I was very happy with the experience and result. If you want a lawyer who knows her stuff but who cares about her clients, contact her. — Kelly Olcott

“I truly believe that Sana always had my best interest in mind. She is extremely honest and ethical. Never for a second did I ever think that she was in it for the money or for the glory; she believed in my case and simply wanted to help.”

I cannot say enough good things about Sana Swe. She is a great lawyer and a great person. I got in touch with Sana based on a friend’s recommendation. I was caught completely off guard and needed legal help immediately. Sana was very easy to talk to on the phone. She was very patient with me and explained legal terms in a way that I could understand. She was sympathetic and empathetic. She was always available and always made time for me. My work schedule was intense and unpredictable, and Sana was extremely accommodating. We would talk early mornings, late evenings, and weekends.

Sana is not only smart and knowledgeable, she is also intuitive—she knew exactly what questions to ask even if it involved technical details in a specialized field. She is fierce and kind at the same time. Trust me, you want both of those qualities in a lawyer. She made it easier for me to talk about a traumatic experience but also was able to ask tough questions at the same time so that she could critically and objectively analyze the case. She knew when to be tough and when to soften up a bit—these are instincts that are critical for a good negotiator.

I truly believe that Sana always had my best interest in mind. She is extremely honest and ethical. Never for a second did I ever think that she was in it for the money or for the glory; she believed in my case and simply wanted to help. It was important for me to not only have a lawyer who would “get the job done,” but someone whom I fully trust to always do the right thing. Sana is someone who would turn down a lucrative case if it were unethical.

I am extremely grateful for Sana. She played a critical role for me at a time when my career was in jeopardy. Because of Sana, I was not only financially compensated but I was able to move past a horrific job experience and enjoy the success that I have today. — Anonymous Client

“She is professional, to the point and definitely knows her law.”

She was amazing and protected our business in an amazing way. She is professional, to the point and definitely knows her law. In all our years of being in business she has been the best we have ever had to use. — Maria Barrie

“Highest Praise for a Great Person and Lawyer”

I have been blessed to have Sana Swe as an attorney. I am currently involved in a two person claim with a government employer, and Sana has been a rock star. Sana treats my co-plaintiff and I with the utmost respect and is beyond ethical in her legal tactics. If you are looking for an attorney who is reliable, accessible, and puts your issues first, Sana Swe will deliver in spades. Civil suits and employment matters are always complex. Sana does an excellent job of keeping the chaos in perspective while looking after our rights. I have had the misfortune of being involved with several bad lawyers who are also bad people. Sana Swe shifted my thinking through her conduct and actions. She is good person who is a great lawyer. I would recommend Sana Swe to anyone who is in need of a tough and hardworking employment lawyer. — James Sexton

“She is a fierce advocate, a great listener, and was deeply committed”

I have worked with Sana twice now and could not imagine there being a better professional. She is a fierce advocate, a great listener, and was deeply committed to ensuring that the terms of my agreements were fair. I highly recommend Sana to anyone looking for an employment law attorney. — Karina K

“Sana is a smart, professional advocate”

“I endorse this lawyer.”

I endorse this lawyer. — Opposing Counsel, Pamela Teren

“Highly recommended. Best in the biz.”

She is a fierce advocate, a great listener, and was deeply committed to ensuring that the terms of my agreements were fair. I highly recommend Sana to anyone looking for an employment law attorney. — Anonymous client

“Truly gifted, compassionate advocate with unparalleled emotional intelligence and professionalism.”

I owe so much to Sana, it’s hard to know where to begin. Like so many of her clients, I was in an awful position with my employer. Desperate, I called her office at 7 AM and had no idea my life was about to change when she called me back an hour later. From that first call, I knew she was the perfect person to help me resolve a complicated and unusual employment issue that other attorneys reported was too complex for them. She understood the complexities of my situation immediately and handled them with aplomb.

Sana is one of the smartest people you will ever meet. Her emotional intelligence is off-the-charts, making her a rare combination of intellect and wit. Her seamless ability to calm my nerves, give me “real talk” when I needed it, and offer a shoulder to cry on made her the perfect advocate. I know I would not have survived a minute of this process with another attorney.

When my employer hired Big, Formidable Law Firm to represent them, I became anxious because of their reputation. It quickly became clear that this firm would be no match for Sana. Sana not only anticipated my employer’s every move, but also outmaneuvered them every step of the way. At points throughout, I thought she was clairvoyant given how precisely she predicted their actions and at times, even words. I still remain in awe of her expertise and professionalism.

I have a handful of colleagues and friends with nearly identical cases, some with experiences far worse than mine. Sana not only supported me far beyond what any of my friends’ attorneys provided, but she also secured nearly triple the amount of damages they received.

As an aside, I knew I could trust Sana when my dog fell madly in love with her, a first. From our time working together, I have grown to respect her as one of the most brilliant, hard-working, and compassionate advocates I have ever known. She changed my life in more ways than I will ever be able to express and I am eternally grateful to her. I trust Sana with my life and I give her my highest recommendation.

“Ms. Swe is a formidable opponent who zealously and effectively advances her clients’ interests”

I endorse this lawyer without reservation or qualification. Ms. Swe is one of the most accomplished employment lawyers and employment litigators in Southern California. She is equally adroit at representing either management or executives and other employees in all facets of counseling and litigation. She has a wealth of experience, is sage, savvy and tenacious, and brings a rare combination of academic and practical perspectives to the practice of law. In short, whether in the context of negotiation or litigation, Ms. Swe is a formidable opponent who zealously and effectively advances her clients’ interests while simultaneously engendering respect and credibility with a level of professionalism and civility that, sadly, is becoming increasingly rare in this line of work. — Opposing Counsel, James Elliott

“She is a very rare combination of exceptional legal know-how, inspirational work ethic, and a gifted EQ and ability to connect with people to get difficult issues understood and resolved.”

Sana is a truly outstanding attorney, who has handled a number of very challenging and complex cases for my firm with consistently excellent results. She has the ability to quickly master the business-specific issues in employment cases while also dealing very effectively with the human and emotional elements, and is absolutely tireless in ensuring that her client’s best long-term interests are well served. She is a very rare combination of exceptional legal know-how, inspirational work ethic, and a gifted EQ and ability to connect with people to get difficult issues understood and resolved. I have had the opportunity to work with dozens of attorneys throughout my career, and give Sana my highest recommendation. — Blake

“completely committed to supporting you and your case”

I very much enjoyed working with Sana. She is exceptionally professional, honest, an enormously hard worker, and completely committed to supporting you and your case. It is quite obvious from working with her that she brings an incredible amount of experience and knowledge from being a premier defense attorney. I believe I was fortunate in being able to work with her and appreciate all the efforts she invested into me and my case. As a result, she has my highest recommendation possible. — JP

“I have dealt with many employment attorneys, and Sana is by far the best…”

I am a senior executive at a financial services firm, and Sana was of invaluable help on negotiating difficult, exit-related issues with my former employer. I found her to be is very knowledgeable, caring, and diligent. She struck a good balance between making sure my employer understood where our case was stronger than they may have realized, and making sure I understood where it was weaker than I realized. As a result, I believe we avoided unnecessary conflict and negotiated a very fair settlement.

Having overseen large groups in my career, I have dealt with many employment attorneys, and Sana is by far the best (her experience as a former partner at a top employment law firm makes a big difference). I have referred her to colleagues without hesitation, and they too have been very pleased with the quality of service they received. — GG

“I recommend her unconditionally.”

I am a business executive who engages with many lawyers in the course of business. Sana was referred to me for a personal matter that had a rushed timeline. She cleared her calendar to assist me. Sana combined significant legal skills with business acumen and strong EQ. I recommend her unconditionally. — Jacqueline

“Would have been lost without Sana’s help.”

Just wanted to say my family would have been lost without her help with our legal disputes. My family never went through any real legal fight before, let alone this intense level of a fight. It was our first and I thought for sure we were in for long war with real heavy battles that will literally kill us mentally and/or drain us physically. Luckily, we had Sana. From the get go, she explained to us what was real and fantasy, you know, what you see on TV doesn’t happen in real life. She made me, for sure, open my eyes on how law really works. From what I observed, Sana is very smart, sensitive yet tough, available, and really on our side. When times got tough, she shielded a lot of craziness and really fought back. When times called for tears, she comforted us and then demanded and did payback on our behalf. When times called for action, she guided and worked with us. Seriously, I thought we were done many times through our case, but she gave us “the never give up hope”. At the end we walked out winners, sane, and very very happy. Sana wasn’t just a lawyer to us, but a friend and superhero. Sana, you rock! — Mike

“my most fierce advocate”

Sana represented me in a harassment case against my former employer. Not only was she professional and knowledgeable but she really cared. She stayed up many late nights listening to my story, learning about the case, discussing approach and giving me effective and real advise. During the long, scary process when lies become truth and truth become lies, she helped me to focus on important issues, shielded me from the pains of litigation, became a friend and my most fierce advocate. I am very happy with how the case ended. I have finally put painful memories behind and am starting a new life and I owe all of it to Sana. — CI

“I will forever be grateful for her expertise and advice.”

Sana represented me as I was transitioning from one employer to a competing firm. I had never been through that kind of process and had no idea how careful I needed to be. Sana had an extensive knowledge of the law and steered me in the right direction throughout the process. Her analysis of the situation was spot on. She gave me the insight I needed to confront my former employer about their legal threats. And she protected me in my contract with my new employer. I could not have navigated the process without her help. I am extremely happy at my new company and I will forever be grateful for her expertise and advice. — JV

“I heartily recommend Sana.”

Sana came highly recommended and was brought in to handle a difficult employment discrimination/breach of contract case that exposed the client, an Internet services company, to serious financial risk. Sana quickly gained command of the facts and through her thorough understanding of relevant law and communication skills convinced the plaintiff’s counsel that the company had done nothing wrong and the claims were without merit. The case went no further. I heartily recommend Sana. — Mark P.

“A very effective advocate…”

Sana helped me through a very difficult personal employment situation. She was a very effective advocate in dealing with the employer by focusing on the real issues and challenging them in the right places. Amazingly, she was also supportive through a very traumatic time. I have since recommended her to several other colleagues who have also found her services to be extremely valuable. — Swanams

“She gives us wise, accurate and practical advice.”

I’ve known Sana professionally for nearly 20 years. We were originally colleagues together at Irell & Manella. Now she counsels my law firm when we have employment/labor questions. She gives us wise, accurate and practical advice. She’s truly a lawyer’s lawyer. Very professional. She’s also quick to respond, even if she’s in trial, etc. — DJM

“I could not have been happier.”

Sana took time to speak with me right away. She was also able to fit me in right away to discuss my legal concern. I believe the advice and information she provided me helped circumvent my potential legal dilemma. At the end of the day, I didn’t need to take legal action and could not have been happier. — Kathy P.

“5 Stars – Excellent”

I would highly recommend Sana to handle any employment law case. She is well versed, responsive and trustworthy. — Employment law client

“The personal service and availability was an attribute that I was not used to with large law firm. I would recommend her highly for any size company …”

Sana is a very knowledgeable employment practice attorney that has the personal skill set to problem solve for your business. I had dealt mainly with larger law firms with employment practice attorneys until I had the opportunity to use Sana which was a great experience. The personal service and availability was an attribute that I was not used to with large law firms. I would recommend her highly for any size company or business for employment practice issues or questions. — RA

Sana and I were on opposing sides of a case. I found her to always be very professional and courteous (something not always found in this field). She represented her client very effectively and I have no doubt that she would work vigorously for all her clients.” — Anthony S.
