About Me

Sarah is dedicated to protecting the interests of clients in family law proceedings. Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, and Qualified as a Family Law Mediator, she possesses over 10 years of experience practicing law throughout the State of New Jersey. She and partner Jodi Argentino founded their boutique family law firm with the goal of providing high-quality service tailored to each client's individual needs. While she works with clients in a cooperative setting, she is a skilled litigator with the knowledge needed to take even the most complex cases to court.


 


Sarah lives with her family in Randolph, New Jersey. She was born and raised in New York, and moved to New Jersey in 2005 though she has worked in this state since 2003. She believes in the importance of family and preserving relationships during tumultuous times.


 


Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong in the broken places." Sarah's personal philosophy is that a problem can only be solved when there is a strong desire within the person to conquer it — a definition unique to each individual — and to then move past it. The best results, however, are achieved when personal growth takes place, which occurs when it is recognized that strength can be derived from facing hardship.

    I endorse this lawyer. Sarah and I were on opposite sides of a very difficut post-judgment matrimonial matter. We were able to craft a settlement satisfactory to our respective clients. I found her extremely knowledgable and practical and forceful in pursuing her client's interests. In fact, after that case was resolved, I referred another difficult post-judgment matter to her that again she was able to resolve in a manner that was satisfactory to the referred difficult client.
