"Rupa has reviewed numerous contracts for me in connection with my real estate business and provided great insight and legal protection that I would have never thought of. In addition, when I was faced with an Airbnb dispute, she was able to contact the other parties’ legal representation, negotiate, and handle the matter swiftly. Her knowledge of the law, contract drafting and review, legal writing, and negotiation skills are top notch."

"Rupa sets the gold standard for litigation work and I would partner with her any time. I was initially referred to her when I needed local counsel on an international defamation case involving computer servers housed in California. She got the maximum results for what we were seeking, stayed within her estimated budget, and was the consummate professional, even when the client showed rather negative signs of stress. I totally endorse Rupa: she gets the job done, impresses the clients, and is a pleasure to work with."
