Sarah Macgillis represented me in a student maltreatment case. It was a very frightening time in my career as an educator. I was stunned and didn't understand what was happening as the school began its investigation. From the very first phone consultation, with Ms. Macgillis, I realized that I was in extremely capable hands. Sarah showed a great deal of compassion as she listened to my story. She let me know that this was an area of expertise, and I was reassured by her knowledge in this area of the law. She did a wonderful job of preparing me for the investigator's interview as she walked me through possible questions that might be asked. She also helped me to keep things in perspective during the six month process. Sarah was always available to discuss my case and answer any questions that I had throughout the process, even to the point where she was willing to receive calls and emails during her personal vacation time. That, in my way of thinking, is going above and beyond the call of duty, which truly speaks to who Sarah is as a professional and as a person. When my case reached a favorable determination on my behalf, Sarah celebrated along with me. I highly recommend Sarah Macgillis as a lawyer. She deserves as many positive reviews as there are stars in the sky!
Sarah MacGillis is one of the most committed, aggressive, professional and effective attorneys. Sarah is one of the very rare, shining examples of the sort of consummately professional, caring, and thoughtful attorneys should be. Sarah has gone out of her way at every point to clearly communicate and keep me informed. Sarah was amazingly thorough and creative in her search for cases relevant to my own. I found Sarah very capable of keeping me focused on each step of the process which I considered to be quite daunting. Her follow through is to be commended and she always returns phone calls and quickly replies to email.
Though Sarah is empathic, her ability to keep the broader perspective in focus for me was extremely helpful. Sarah was a very calming and empowering presence as I went through the legal process that involved very personal aspects of my life. I find Sarah to be that rare combination of kind, hardworking and of unquestionable integrity. I would highly recommend Sarah MacGillis, and I do believe one would be fortunate to engage her services. I am eternally grateful for Sarah MacGillis and for the outcome of my case.

From the very first handshake, Sarah provided me with a level of reassurance and confidence upon which I knew I could depend. She walked me through my MDE fact finding interview, providing much needed clarification and knowledge of education law. She explained the legal process, easing my anxiety as we waited for the decision. When the results were in my favor, Sarah was diligent in seeking me out to celebrate our positive outcome. I am happy to recommend Sarah; she helped me regain my dignity and restored my sense of well-being as a teacher again.

Sarah has been working with me for the past 17 months on my misdemeanor assault case and I have nothing but praise and admiration for her work. Sarah is a tireless lawyer who is even keeled and calming during what has been a tumultuous and stressful period in my professional career. Her efforts did not go unnoticed or unrewarded on my behalf as I received the best possible outcome for my legal matter. I truly believe that it was her well written, and highly referenced motion, entered shortly before we were to go to trial, that allowed for the judge and prosecutor to reach an out of court plea bargain with us. That plea bargain, as it turns out, was the best possible outcome to my case and one that I can work with and not be severely penalized in the end.
None of this would have been possible without the quick thinking and level headed approach that Sarah used in my legal matter. I would recommend her services to anyone that is having a challenging time with the Minnesota legal system.

Knowledgeable, Ambitious, Confident, Diligent, Personable, Morally Good. These are just some of the attributes that Sarah exemplifies!
She guided and explained all events and processes with her supreme knowledge of the law. She made me feel at ease and calmed me in a time when there was much confusion and turmoil.
Sarah always made herself available if I were to have any questions or concerns and truly made me feel that I was her only client.
Sarah made it clear that morally she knew what the right outcome in my case was. She continued to stay with me and be in my corner and fight for what was right until the end!
SAY NO MORE, SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST!!

Sarah Macgillis was the right Lawyer for me when i had to go before the board of nursing.At our first meeting she was upfront,listened carefully,very understanding and very knowledgeable. From the first moment I shook her hand I knew she was the right choice. She explained to me what to expect. Helped me prepare my response and also prepared me when I had to go before the board of nursing. She always answered my e-mails or phone calls very promptly..My outcome was in my favor but had it gone differently I still would be happy with my choice in Sarah..I feel it is just important to have a lawyer with compassion for her job and people as it is to have knowledge and intelligence. Sarah has everything to make a great lawyer and that is why I believe she is above alot of her fellow attorneys.

As a former investigator I have had the experience of working with many attorneys. Sarah represented the people I was investigating so we were in opposition of each other. I found Sarah to be extremely knowledgeable of her clients cases to the point where she seemed to have as much, if not more, information on the case than me. Sarah always knew the laws we were dealing with and made her clients feel at ease during our interviews, which I am sure were very stressful for them. Sarah always treated me with respect while pushing for a speedy disposition. Sarah clearly has her clients best interests at heart. She is intelligent, compassionate and works hard for her clients. If I ever needed an attorney, she would be the first person I would call.
