During the most emotional and challenging time of my life, a lengthy custody and relocation case, Sarah consistently demonstrated a caring, thoughtful and professional response to me, and my family. Sarah maintained focus on what mattered most to me, my children. Her genuine dedication and hard work gave me the needed strength and trust; proving successful. I am eternally grateful and enjoy watching my children grow each day.

I came to Sarah when I was going through my divorce after a horrible experience with another attorney.
I was very pleased with how she took over my case and handled my divorce. If I ever had a question or concern she was always available to respond and help me out. She is excellent when it comes to communicating with you and keeping you in the loop of what is going on. She shows great professionalism but is also caring. My divorce was one of the hardest things I have been through and it was great to have someone like her by my side to guide me through it.
Scott Gorman, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Sarah is a talented and skilled attorney who cares deeply for her clients. Her commitment to achieving the best results for her clients is why I do not hesitate to refer to Sarah those who are considering mediation, are in need of legal representation, or are simply seeking advice regarding their legal options.
Kevin Steinberg, Car accident Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Sarah is a highly skilled and trained family law attorney. Her ability to appreciate the sensitive issues involved in any domestic relations matter, while aggressively fighting for her clients is truly remarkable, I highly endorse this lawyer.
