Sandy loves to learn and loves connecting with people. When she found an area of legal work that involves both of those passions, plus writing, she knew it was the path for her.


Before joining the firm, Sandy conducted impartial workplace investigations for public utilities and technology giants in Silicon Valley. She routinely handled issues involving unions, contingent workers and protected leaves.

Sandy has conducted more than 30 investigations involving allegations of discrimination based on race, gender and disability, as well as allegations of retaliation, bullying, sexual harassment, sexual assault and other misconduct.

Sandy worked for five years as in-house counsel for Adobe Systems, Inc., where she was responsible for negotiating complex software licensing deals. She began her legal career as a corporate associate in the Palo Alto office of Pillsbury. She worked with startups as well as venture-backed and publicly traded companies on mergers and acquisitions and other transactional matters.

In law school, Sandy served as an extern for Federal District Court Judge Ronald Whyte. Her work involved drafting decisions on Social Security appeals and criminal procedure cases.

Outside the Office

Sandy loves to wander, whether when running, camping or backpacking. Once a year, she makes a family of costumes for Halloween. She recently started keeping honeybees and propagating succulents.
