Sarah represented me for my Collaborative Divorce case. Logically, I accepted the process but emotionally it was very difficult. Sarah kept in constant contact and skillfully assisted me through the process. I can confidently say that I came through the ordeal better than I could have hoped
and gained much confidence in successfully supporting my family.

Sarah Novak Nesbitt: Distinguishing Characteristics :
. Exceptional professionalism and knowledge of Family Law. Experienced.
. Genuine interest and practice of keeping client fees contained.
. Provide a realistic picture of what you need to know versus what you want to hear ( asset versus income issue)

Sarah's work was excellent. I had a very difficult divorce case, financially complex, hampered with many dramatic events. Sarah has the ability to look at multiple aspects of the case, from her social worker background. She sees the legal, psychological aspects, family, financial, and strategic concerns. She keeps the client well informed and up to date regarding the next steps in the process. Her ability to write and plan are excellent. Getting divorced is a very painful and causes a lot of fear. I was confident in Sarah's legal experience and abilities to guide me through this transformation. By the way, my life my is great now! I would highly recommend Sarah as your attorney.

I began working with Sarah Nesbitt's firm when she was a paralegal, waiting for her bar results. She handled much of the "behind the scenes" of my my complicated divorce case that involved property settlement, child support, and child access schedules. Upon passing the bar exam, she took over the majority of my case and I always felt comfortable, well informed, well represented and safe that my best interests (and more so, my children's) were her primary focus. I never felt that it was about her billable hours and often, she would discuss with me the approach that would be less expensive. While going to court was an option in a couple of circumstances, Sarah helped me weigh the pros and cons and avoid what would have been additional expenses. Due to complications and my ex changing lawyers, my case continued with Sarah's firm on and off for about 2 1/2 years. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a separation and/or divorce in need of legal representation.
