  • Benjamin Hale Carafiol

    Attorney Stephanie Sauer is a strong advocate in the area of family law. Stephanie will fight for each and every client, putting their best interests at the forefront of the case. Her "no-nonsense" demeanor keeps the case moving forward towards resolution, and will show you how important your case is to her. A particular area of interest for Stephanie is adoptions, where she works hard to assist all parties in completing the lengthy and complicated adoption process. She works tirelessly on these cases, on nights, weekends, and all other times when immediate action is required. I give Stephanie Sauer my highest endorsement.
