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.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
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.
