About Sanford Young And His Practice

Sanford F. Young established his New York City law firm in March 1978 after gaining experience at a prominent Park Avenue law firm. He joined that firm after graduating in the top 10 of his class with honors from Syracuse University College of Law in May 1976.

He laid the foundation for his current practice by recognizing a need amongst his peers, individuals and businesses for the services of an unusual and dedicated attorney. Sanford brings a fresh perspective to complex and difficult cases that often overwhelm other attorneys.

A Lawyer’s Lawyer

Sanford is consistently called upon by other law firms, individuals and businesses to provide them with candid and meaningful second legal opinions, reorient their strategies, handle appeals and take on complex litigation matters that other lawyers may prefer not to contend with. The hundreds of cases he has successfully tried, appealed, and settled after they were abandoned by other attorneys, who found themselves in over their heads, earned Sanford his well-founded reputation as a “lawyer’s lawyer.”

Firm Philosophy: Team Effort And The Bigger Picture

Sanford is known for his client-focused approach to the practice of law. He does this by creating a team effort between lawyer and client and maintaining open and consistent communications. Unlike larger, impersonal firms, where there may be little or no client contact with the lawyer handling the case, Sanford works closely with every client to ensure that they are fully informed and involved. In this way, their best interests and concerns are served.

Sanford prides himself on his tenacious investigations, research and preparation as well as his dogged negotiation, litigation and appellate skills. He combines honesty, integrity and dedication with personal service and focus on his clients’ needs and goals.
