I hired Sandy 3 years to handle my divorce and child custody matters. After a prior experience with a less than adequate attorney, I knew at our first meeting that my children and I would be well taken care of with her on our side. At the time I had little to offer in terms of payment, yet she took my case, focused on what was best for my kids and immediately went to work. She not only has been a superb attorney, but she truly CARES about her clients and their families and seeks out the fairest possible scenario to foster harmony between the parties involved. She knows her business and takes no garbage from anyone. Every single time we entered the courtroom it was with confidence that our position was fair and the results were in our favor. She also made certain that I was very well taken care of when I needed legal counsel in an area that was not her specialty. Today I am a very happy person, able to get on with life and enjoying being a mom. If Sandy wasn't the person she is, I may not be so lucky. And if I had to go through it again, I would definitely want her in my corner. She's a WINNER!

I hired Sandy 11 years ago to handle my Child custody/support and my divorce. She continues to fight for me and be an amazing lawyer when needed. She knows the law and is honest about her limitations regarding it. She takes care of business and allows no garbage when entering mediation or the court room. Any time i have needed her, even last minute, she has been there. I had a seperate case, outside of her specialties and she pointed me in another perfect direction, to another fabulous law firm in the city who also took amazing care of me. She doesnt only hold the lawyer client relationship, she remains professional but genually CARES about you and your case. I have loved her since the day i hired her in 2002 and refer her to EVERYONE i hear needs a lawyer. If you want a reliable and supportive lawyer in your corner who will fight for you to get what you need done.. call her, you wont be disappointed. I wouldnt continue to hand her name out if i wasnt confident that people would absolutely adore her as much as i do.

I am currently going through my second custody battle with my sons mother and her family. After abandoning my son for two years his mother decided she would just pop back into his life and try and take custody from me after I have raised and soley taken care of him since birth. It is a horrible experience and needless to say more stressful than anything else you will go through in your life. Sandra and her staff have helped me through the original custody and again with this one. Sandra is not the type of lawyer to go in and negotiate or settle or reach agreements with the other parties, she is going in for the kill. Its all or nothing with her. She knows the ins and outs of the law and more importantly the system, and there is a difference. So if you are looking to hire an attorney thats going to go play nicey nice patty cake with the other party or their attorney, then maybe she is not the lawyer for you. If you are looking for an attorney to present the facts and represent your best legal interests and protect your rights at all costs, then she is right up your alley. In dealing with custody disputes you have to learn one thing, and that is you cant be worried about the other sides feelings or emotions when it comes to the welfare and best interest of an innocent child. Sandra operates within this mindset and will present the best case possible to ensure that welfare and interest are protected. I owe my life to her and more importantly so does my son.

She is knowledgable, caring and really fought for me

Not sure how knowledgeable she is since I have yet to see her working efficiently on my case after quite a few years since hiring her. If you do hire her, expect to get frustrated and be prepared to chase after her and watch your funds depleting for nothing. Better to find somebody else to advise and handle your case. Or study enough to represent yourself.
