Hari K Sathappan

Practice Areas

As an associate at the Law Office of Anthony W. Greco, Hari Sathappan practices in family law, including divorce, custody, termination and modification of support, grandparent custody, and appeals.

Hari Sathappan works on divorce and family law cases that are high income, high asset, and high conflict.  As a result, Hari finds that success is best achieved by building cases with the thought of an appeal in mind from the start.  This means developing case law and evidence through thorough research and discovery.  By creating this solid foundation, Hari Sathappan places his clients in a position of strength during negotiations.  Even if settlement is not possible, this foundation greatly improves the chances of success at trial.

Hari Sathappan believes that it is important for his clients to be educated regarding the relevant law, the legal system, and all aspects of their case so that they can understand what is happening and make informed decisions.  He attempts to educate clients on how to communicate and deal with their ex in a way that avoids problems or, at least, places them in a positive position if a second round of litigation occurs.

Hari Sathappan handles cases in a manner that is both time and labor intensive.  He believes that going all in is necessary to help his clients.  Further, his dedication and skill as an attorney have helped many of his clients achieve the goals they desired.  Hari knows that, in family law, your children, livelihood, and happiness are at stake and there is nothing more important.
