About me

I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, Maverick and Goose, when I'm not working. I also love to garden and entertain in my backyard.  I love to travel overseas and am hoping to visit Denmark and Amsterdam in the next year.

  • Jonathan A Millet

    Attorney Farber's advice is spot on; as shown by the answers she has posted to questions on criminal law, she takes the time to answer questions in a common sense manner and plainly addresses legal issues. (As part of my practice, I am a prosecutor for a small town in Yavapai County, Arizona).

  • Grant Stephen Scheuring

    I first got to know Sarah while we were on the large team of attorneys that represented the Moral Monday Protestors. Sarah went above and beyond to fight for her clients and is an all around great attorney. Since then, my opinion of her as an attorney has grown stronger. You're in good hands with Sarah!
