"I've worked with Sandhya officially for the past few months and I couldn't he happier. Her services to me primarily concern the work we do with musicians and I'll be lying if I said there is anyone out there with the in depth knowledge that she has when it comes to matters of all things legal for music artists. Her turn around time is superb and is very easily accessible and for the services she provides they are very well priced."
