Sarah Powell Attorney at Law represented me for a civil lawsuit for the death of my daughter. She had all members of our family share input and love of my daughter. She, in taking a lot of Her personal writings , pictures stories we shared portrayed my daughter in a caring professional way so that she became a person not just the statistic of a dead person. She researched friends and loved ones and her presentation to the court was heartfelt and I believe is why it was settled without going to trial...
It is the hardest thing a family has to go through she made me and my family feel we were doing the right thing, when it felt like we were being attacked she put that to rest..
Again we were able to settle fairly .

I have been trying to find a good forum to send my praises to Ms. Powell. She was pretty new to the Scaffiddi law firm when I was introduced to her but you wouldn't have been able to tell by her professionalism and hard work. Sarah went above and beyond my expectations of a lawyer. Having been used to public pretenders, I was in a situation where I needed the best of the best to represent me and I was glad unmade the decision to go with Michael Scaffiddi's firm. I would and have referred many people to their services.

The circumstances surrounding my case are complex and involve both criminal and family law issues.
Basically my spouse had me arrested for pc 273.5 (inflicting corporal injury on a spouse) 5 minutes after having me served, in our home and in the presence of our children, with divorce/custody papers. These false allegations were part of a well orchestrated plan to gain the upper hand in family coutr, thus t allowing my spouse to be granted a 3-year restraining order, sole custody of our children, exclusive use of our home and furniture and the legal premise not to have to pay spousal support or any of my legal fees in our divorce case.
Having never been arrested before and facing a criminal charge in where just touching your spouse inappropriately, with or without injury or intent, is a crime and is punishable by up to 2 years in jail/prison, I did not know where to turn. I was scared and unsure of what was going to happen to me.
Sarah Powell was compassionate and supportive from the first meeting. After listening to what I had to say, she was able to see through the lies and recognize the tactics my spouse was using to discredit me in the eyes of the court.
Yes, she was confident in her ability to represent me but more importantly, she provided me with assurance and security that she could do it as well. It was like she was behind me saying "Don't worry, I got this". To me that was worth infinitely more.
So, after many months of waiting for the DA to provide the evidence and not getting any, and just as many months of continuances, Sarah went in like a bulldog and was able to have the charge dismissed. Totally and completely dismissed!
I walked out of the courtroom grateful to God for having blessed me with an advocate like Sarah. In my opinion, Sarah Powell is most definately an attorney with 'all the right stuff'.

Sarah Powell, Was always first and foremost sensitive to my feelings and emotions regarding my two charges, and how that would affect myself, daughter, and my family. Sarah went above and beyond to make sure I got the best possible outcome regarding my case. My family and I are eternally grateful to her. I have and will continue to reccommend her to anyone who is facing serious criminal charges.

Sarah Powell helped me with my case on a couple of charges that I had picked up. A few court dates went by where she made the appearances for me. She would call me right after the hearing was over with and let me know exactly what took place, what to expect, and our next plan of attack. When it came down to the final hearing where I was ordered to be present, I was extremely nervous and Sarah assured me that we'd be okay. I appeared before the judge, Ms. Powell made a few arguments, and the Judge's response was "CASE DISMISSED." I am very thankful to have hired Ms. Powell for my criminal matter and I will definitely be calling her in the future if I run into any trouble.

I would like to personally Thank you Sarah for all your hard work and personal dedication to helping myself and brother thru our crazy ordeal. I have dealt with many attorneys in the past and not 1 comes to mind that I can compare to Sarah . Sarah made me feel like family and not just another case number.She listened to all the facts of my case and always gave me her honest opinion , not just what I wanted to hear. If you have not dealt with attorneys in the past, that is rare to find . She is very knowlegeable and truly fight's for her clients. Her honesty ,dedication and personal commitment is something that is exceptional and stand out from the rest. Sarah has over exceeded my expectations, she probably does not understand how greatful I am to have her represent me in court. She has made a life time family member here. Thank you Sarah !!!
If your in need of a great attorney Sarah Powell is the one to call , I guarantee it !

Ms. Powell represented me for a traffic violation. She was early to appear, very professional, had all the paperwork on the radar guns, and got me the best possible outcome.
I was extremely impressed by how personable she was. I believe her positive interactions with the prosecuting officers helped me with this case. I highly recommend her.

In my experience Sarah was my ray of light in a sea of darkness. I was totally blindsided with a legal issue that left me feeling humiliated, ashamed, and in a state of disbelief. I was terminated from my place of employment based on the statements of two individuals who over time showed to be less that trustworthy or honest. When I met Sarah I didn't even know how to begin explaining my position. I had been terminitated, arrested on my job site and charged with 3 felony counts. Mind you my criminal history was limited to a DUI 15yrs ago and a red light ticket. Sarah represented me one time before requesting I come into the office for a one on one meeting. This meeting changed my entire outlook on my life. Sarah made me feel as though I was not just a file in a pile but a living ,breathing, feeling human. She supported me me through tears, rage and a whirlwind of emotions. She gave me the worse case scenario and the best.That was very scary but needed. Sarah took all of my calls when she could and returned my calls no matter how small or large the question was. I was able to lose the cloud of shame that followed me although I truly had done nothing wrong. Through Sarahs's education, professionalism and determination my case, in it's entirety was dismissed. Did I get my job back? No. Do I have an arrest? Yes. Do I feel that I am worthless,shamed , a bad person, or unheard? NO!! THAT IS DO SOLEY TO THE EFFORTS OF SARAH ELIZABETH POWELL AND HER COLLEAGUES!!! i TEAR UP WHEN I THINK OF HOW BECAUSE OF THEIR EFFORTS I REGAINED MY DIGNITY AND THE OPPROTUNITY TO REBUILD MY SHATTERED LIFE.
