When my ex filed for a divorce, I fully believed it would be fair and amicable, because that’s what we agreed to. However, then I received a proposal from her attorney. What she believed to be fair was for me to take on all the debt and for her to take all the equity in the house along with taking the kids more than 80% of the time in order to fully maximize her child support payment. I knew at that moment this process was not going to be as amicable as we discussed. I received several recommendations for attorneys from friends, which I called and/or met with personally. However, I just did not feel comfortable with or like any of them. I then received a referral from a close friend (also an attorney) to meet with Sarah Perky. I knew after our initial consult that she was the right attorney to represent me. Sarah did an amazing job and I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or dealing with any sort of child custody issues. She knows the law well and knows how to get things done. Sarah is also extremely personable and caring. When you hire Sarah, you are getting someone who genuinely cares and treats you like a brother or sister. Bottom-line: Sarah fought for me without spending money unwisely and got me what I always felt was fair and reasonable, along with greatly increasing the amount of days I get with my kids.

Because I'm not originally from Tennessee and prior to my consultation with Sarah, I felt as though I was about to experience one of the most challenging times in my life alone. With her sincere empathy for my concerns and sheer determination to represent me with the best interest of my daughter at hand, I was able to finalize my divorce and maintain the custodial obligations that best suited all parties, including our daughter. Sarah's professionalism, knowledge, and work ethic has by far exceeded my expectations. Thank you Sarah and the staff at Hollins, Raybin, & Weissman for being there when I needed you most.
...You are a true blessing...

We also greatly appreciated her promptness in responding to contacts and her willingness to answer any and all questions. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone in need of high quality representation.

Sarah handled my divorce case, and expertly navigated some very rough waters for me. She's the very definition of professional, but also has that caring, personal touch that can be so important in emotionally charged situations, of which most divorces obviously are. Hiring Sarah ensures that you'll be in good hands.

Sarah assisted me through a difficult divorce and challenging custody case. Sarah was always quick to respond and gave me very sound advice for dealing with my ex-spouse throughout the process. I felt that Sarah always had my best interest in mind including financially. The most comforting part of the entire process was the fact that Sarah seemed to sincerely care!

Mrs. Sarah Richter Perky was my attorney for a child custody case. My ex-wife had filed an emergency order to get absolute custody of my son, and I was deathly afraid of losing any legal ability to have a voice in my son's life. If you find yourself in such a dark situation, I strongly recommend getting Mrs. Perky in your corner.
Although we were working on a very short timeline (under a week), Mrs. Perky was extremely responsive to every communication. I read a motion for dismissal that Mrs. Perky drafted, and even to a layman the writing was eloquent and the argument was flawlessly logical. Additionally, although the motion was relatively simple, Mrs. Perky went the extra mile by researching a recent and relevant precedent. She was also very impressive in Court, as she professionally and systematically rebutted every element of the opposition's arguments. On a personal level, she was also very reassuring in the face of uncertainty. I had never been in a courtroom before, and she was quick to explain every step of the process.

Sarah Richter Perky at Hollins, Raybin & Weissman was my attorney in my rough and difficult custody battle and I cannot say enough good things about her. She masterfully handled the case through its many unfortunate twists and turns. She is very attentive to details, sharp, and provides wise counsel. She did an amazing job at the trial, proving perjury by the accuser within a few minutes of testimony. She exposed the lies after a quick perusal of the many case documents that I was only able to provide her at the last minute, during the trial. She handled my case with great sympathy and care, especially where it involved the child. There were a few emergency situations involving the child and she moved extremely quickly to get the tricky situations resolved in the best interest of the child. During an emergency, she constantly kept in touch with me even though she was in court that day for another trial. On occasion, I would tire of the process and be willing to concede some points but she strictly put her foot down and told me "no" - she was right, we won the point eventually. I truly feel Sarah was a Godsend to help me and my child during the toughest times in my life. If you are in a tough spot, you definitely want Sarah Perky on your side. Everyone at the firm was very helpful throughout the process. Ben Raybin stepped in for a day when Sarah was held up in another case and he too masterfully handled the issue of the day. I very highly recommend the firm.

I highly recommend Sarah to anyone facing child custody issues. In December of 2011, my 16 month son's mother and I separated. It was her desire to relocate with my son to another state. I hired Sarah to help me maintain custody of my son and to ensure that he stayed in Nashville, TN. I knew that I faced an uphill battle because I worked a job with shifts/hours that were less than ideal for raising a young child. Furthermore, I had always heard that fathers were at a natural disadvantage in custody cases. Despite those circumstances, in May of 2012, with Sarah's endless hours of work and representation, I was granted primary custodianship of my son. I am forever grateful to Sarah for her work on this case. I could not ask for a better outcome.
