Jivaka Candappa is one of the most dedicated, hard-working, and skilled attorneys that I know. I have had the pleasure of co-counseling cases with Jivaka for more than five years and have seen firsthand his abilities in the courtroom. He is a fierce advocate for his clients and has a level of compassion and dedication to his clients that is hard to find in an attorney. Jivaka is truly a lawyer for the people and has dedicated his career to fighting for human rights. He stands up for causes that he believes in and provides top legal representation to those who have traditionally lacked power in our legal system.- Jenny Huang, Attorney
