  • Charles Wesley Kim Jr

    I've worked with Sara for nearly a decade now. She is exceptionally bright, hardworking, and very dedicated to her clients. Whenever particularly complex legal issues come up in the office, she can be counted on to know the letter of the law and the latest case updates. I would recommend her to my clients and fellow attorneys without any hesitation.
