  • Latonia Early

    I endorse this lawyer. Many years ago, when I was a young lawyer, I had a case with with Sari that involved a contested custody litigation. As an adversary, I found her to be a tenacious advocate for her client, while exhibiting the highest level of professionalism and ethical behavior. Now that I work for her many years later, my admiration and respect for her legal acumen and trial skills have only increased. No one will work harder to meet the goals of their client, while assisting the client in being mindful of the practicality of those goals and how they fit that client's life plan.
