This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
She was hired to represent my children instead she did everything to benefit herself and the other two lawyers who represented me and my ex. She dragged my case for 2 and a half years, and because it was my ex who was paying her fees she also did everything he asked to benefit him and not my children, their well being or their safety. A couple of times she announced to everyone in court that she put a down payment for a house in Fairfield after we paid her $30k. Everyone was congratulating her on the purchase of her new home at my children’s expenses. She also co-teaches with some of the female judges so she always got everything she wanted but nothing to benefit my children. She used to run a home for sexual offenders and pedofilles but was forced to shut down so this is the kind of individual this woman is. She is also a very unhealthy person and I hope she is rotting and living in hell while she’s still alive if she is even still alive. I HOPE NO ONE ELSE EVER HIRES HER!

Only out to benefit herself
A friend of mine used Sandra Lax and to my understanding she has been completely unprofessional in her verbal communications, representation, and billing. I was so upset about the way my friend has been treated that i decided to write a review. How does her unethical behavior provide any reassurance to those that use lawyers to defend them? I was delighted to hear that new reforms have been made where the GALs will be under stricter review and subject to removal for such actions.

Overcharges and Not Client Friendly... Quite Rude.
I believe she billed me for things that had no relevance to my case. She wasn't very friendly when asking her about my case. She was quite rude. Whenever I asked about the bill she didn't respond. The charges kept coming in.

The worst Lawyer ever
She was unavailable , sent other attorneys in her place to court dates , constantly changed court dates but if I needed to change a date because of my kids she wouldn't change the date. She would not explain bill charges. DO NOT HIRE HER!!!!

Fair Warning
I honestly cannot give anything more than poor on all levels. She dragged on my case for over three years and in the end I realized she had been consistently delaying my court dates, didn't care about me or my case but never missed a chance to send me bills. She also didn't do things that she said she would and told me she did. By dragging my divorce along so long it literally affected my overall life, but it is clear she doesn't care. In the end I had to hire another lawyer to deal with her. She cost me six figures for no results in a slam dunker! Warning!

not accountable, onerous,
This lawyer told me in writing and verbally that "she does not care about me" and does not care what happens to me. She is only interested in how much money she can get out of you. would not reply to emailed questions regarding her invoices.
