Our Client Reviews

Sarah is a top-notch lawyer and was a tremendous resource for me and the management team. I could always count on Sarah for prompt and informed responses to all of our questions—Sarah typically responded to our requests same day, and her advice was always spot on from both the legal and practical perspectives. Sarah also performed efficiently and on budget, and was generous with firm resources helpful to us in navigating various labor issues nationwide. Because of her efficiency, expertise, responsiveness, and understanding of our business concerns, Sarah was my go-to for all labor law issues. I have and will continue to wholeheartedly recommend Sarah to colleagues and friends.

Corporate Counsel

Sarah did a great job representing me in my termination case. I doubt the outcome for me could’ve happened with a different attorney (and I interviewed several attorneys prior to going with Sarah). She is thorough, transparent, and professionally objective. She expertly navigated the in-house counsel team and was a constant advocate for my case. Her honesty and empathy made the difficult decisions easier to work through and was responsive when I needed to review or better understand case matters. I highly recommend!

Employee – Super Results

Sarah has been a valuable asset for us. She has gracefully managed complex employment litigation matters and constantly provided proactive, strategic counsel while we navigated an aggressive growth curve in the California market. Sarah’s deep knowledge of CA employment law and keen business sense truly set her apart, and I look forward to working with her for years to come.

Chief Operating Officer

After a surprise layoff, Sarah Nichols secured three times the severance package that I would have obtained on my own. She communicated with me every step of the way and her pricing is fair and transparent. I highly, highly recommend Sarah Nichols.

Director of Production

Sarah has been a tremendous asset to us. An expert in Employment Law, Sarah is always courteous, thorough, detailed, efficient and proactive in helping us with our questions and concerns. I would highly recommend her to any organization looking for expert legal counsel in the complex and ever-changing field of employment law.
