Help with post-divorce litigation
Sarah was great to work with in a difficult situation. She is warm, inviting, and relatable. She always seemed available for communication and to answer questions, even when I am sure her days were very busy. She accessed the resources of the rest of the firm when a question was out of her area of expertise or scope of practice. Sarah was meticulous and detail oriented when preparing evidence for our trial. I sent her an overwhelming amount of pre-trial information and she was able to decipher what was the most valuable to present to the judge. Sarah was a pleasure to work with and I am happy to continue to have her as a resource.
