ATTORNEYS SYLVIA I. ONYEJKWE, ESQ.

Sylvia I. Onyejekwe, Esq. is the Managing Partner of Onyejekwe & Associates, LLP.  Her primary focus areas are Employment Law, Civil Rights, Civil, and Family law.  She has a Bachelors degree in Social Work from The Ohio State University.  She has devoted her life to helping the less fortunate and disenfranchised persons.

 

In addition, she is passionate about issues that involve social and economic justice.  She spends a great portion of her practice taking on employment discrimination matters. She believes in the concept of equitability and fairness for all and fights vigorously to achieve that end.  

She is a very compassionate person, who offers not only legal services to her clients, but emotional support to help her clients get through their difficult situations.  Her clients appreciate her because she is not only their lawyer, but their confidant, friend, and support system.  Clients say, she is exceptionally motivated, intelligent, and aggressive; as she does not take a case she does not believe in or believe she can win, which has made her a great choice for clients who want a lawyer on their side.
