Background: I hired Sarah Cavassa of the Granberg Law Firm to represent me in a legal action involving my brother, the other party. My brother was unnecessarily delaying in selling a property we both owned at 50 percent each. Sarah's representation resulted in immediate action by my brother in getting him to come to terms with selling the property so we can both move on with our lives. Sarah represented me for approximately 8 months from April 2009 through November 2009. The services Sarah provided were: phone conferences, draft legal documents in preparation for court (in case we had to go), other legal documentation, court filings, emails from client, emails to client, phone calls to the other party's attorney, in-person meetings, legal review of real estate documents.
Comments: Before I first met Sarah I spoke to her over the phone and she asked me to provide background documentation before our first meeting, which I did. At the first meeting Sarah was thoroughly familiar with all the case details having reviewed everything beforehand. Sarah gave me an excellent legal summary of my options and her recommendations, and she apprised me of any legal exceptions which were important for me to know about. Throughout her representation of me I was extremely impressed by Sarah's thoroughness, clarity, follow-up, articulate and expert legal knowledge, as well as her professionalism. In the meeting with my brother and his attorney she handled all the interactions with deftness and intelligence. From the beginning to the completion of the case Sarah listened to all my concerns and always took action as necessary to protect my interests. The case was resolved by an out of court documented agreement between my brother and I and our attorneys, and we never had to go to court. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of the case. Before the final legal bill was paid the house was sold in November 2009 at a satisfactory price and to the right buyer. Everything turned out perfectly in the end and Sarah's representation was key.
