Very Satisfied Customer!! To be very specific, my life changed when my Employer wrongly terminated me. I felt so lost, afraid and unsure of what my rights were. I only knew that the employers actions were wrong on so many levels!! THEN I met with Mr. Jivaka Candappa. Jivaka listened to my concerns and immediately began working on my case. His words of wisdom and his no nonsense approach with my former employer was felt by all. Jivaka set up conf calls, sent emails and letters creating a strong legal presence on my behalf and kept me informed every step of the way. His passion for justice with my case allowed me to move on successfully with my life. IN THE END, I brought a new convertible, paid off bills and "Opened My Own Business". Now, this is how you win!! You don't get even, you get better!!Mrs. Lauren
Brilliant litigation attorney. Jivaka Candappa, Esq. has been a brilliant and passionate attorney representing me in an arbitration case against one of the largest employers of the Los Angeles. Jivaka Candappa sees and understands it all with limpid clarity and is a powerful litigation attorney that I am most impressed to see standing next to me.Nathalie
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 - Justice First, LLP
We were extremely satisfied with your work. Our previous attorney who we fired had left us in a mess and you started off hamstrung by his efforts. At every stage of the process of working with you, you consistently communicated with us, keeping us informed of every aspect of the case, and solicited our input, and followed our stated desires. When you were representing us, you really were representing us and not just trying to find an easy way out. The end result was that we were able to come up with the best solution in as quick a time frame as possible.John Licking - Licking Enterprises
Our child was summarily expelled from school without due process. Jivaka Candappa listened, advised, and deftly responded to the urgency of the circumstances with a well-conceived strategy that proved to be the winning one. Against the odds, with a limited budget, he calmly dueled with an institution that refused reason. Jivaka was careful to explain each step of the way in layman’s terms so that we were informed partners at every fork-in-the-road that eventually led to a satisfying outcome. Jivaka was a pleasure to work with: intelligent, personal and reassuring, yet passionate and smart about his law - he anticipated every move of our opponent. A five-star professional, highest recommendation.Fu-Tung Cheng
Jivaka is my colleague to whom I refer the toughest of cases. Jivaka has that rare combination of eloquence, passion and grit that reminds me of why we went to law school. It's not just that he is a skilled orator and writer. He can work through a problem with the thoughtfulness and clarity of purpose that enables him to overcome obstacles and achieve terrific results when other lawyers would throw in the towel. He is intimidated by nothing. He handles the courtroom with a tactical sophistication and skill that makes me look forward to many other cases with him.Alanna Coopersmith, Attorney - East Bay Defense

Mr. Candappa has been a great support; he has been very understanding and honest with me. I can’t say enough about this man. I was a nervous wreck worrying about what was going to happen to my husband, but once I spoke with Mr. Candappa, I had complete confidence in his ability to defend my husband.- N.M.
