Sanford Heisler Sharp's attorneys and staff are all united around a single goal: protecting the public interest. We take that obligation seriously and are honored to have successfully aided clients across the United States, protecting their constitutional and statutory rights in civil rights and public interest matters involving employment discrimination, labor and wage violations, whistleblowing, consumer fraud, predatory lending, sexual harassment, prison litigation and mass torts.
Since our founding in 2004, Sanford Heisler Sharp LLP has won record-breaking verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients totaling over one billion dollars. Included in those victories are: the largest employment discrimination verdict in U.S. history (more than $250 million) and the largest non-intervened qui tam action settlement (more than $750 million). Other recent victories include the resolution of a wage and hour dispute with a $99 million settlement and the resolution of a fraud case for $23.5 million. In total, the firm has won over a billion dollars for clients.
Sanford Heisler Sharp is able to secure landmark victories and to otherwise provide an unparalleled level of client service because of the quality of our team. Our team of more than 30 attorneys is directed by Chairman David Sanford, NY Managing Partner Jeremy Heisler, and Nashville Managing Partner Judge Kevin Sharp. The concentration of talent at the Firm is unique: more than 70% of our lawyers graduated from top ten law schools, with 40% hailing from Yale, Harvard or Stanford – and with each office led by a Yale Law School graduate. The Firm holds the highest rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.
Our commitment to social justice and to providing the best representation possible is reflected in a commitment to diversity within our own firm. At Sanford Heisler, we know better than to fall into the trap of thinking the "best" attorneys look alike, sound alike, think alike or live alike. Our three offices are managed by women, and female, minority and/or openly LGBTQ lawyers make up the majority of our team. What unifies us all is a passion for using the law to help balance the scales and stem the tides of employment discrimination and corruption.
