Above & Beyond
My wife and I took Sabra on an unexpected, unanticipated ride through some challenging real estate issues as we hunted for our first home. In our search we hit multiple stumbling blocks such as black mold, asbestos, low bank appraisal, out of date CO, sidewalk liens. Every step of the way (and home we pursued) she assisted us by problem-solving, researching solutions, and dedicating herself to meet our needs. Sabra is an excellent counselor and negotiator to have in your corner as you buy your home.

My Will
I met Sabra Sasson when she was singing with a group of lawyers at a Rehab. Center in Manhattan's U.E.S. (where my husband was a patient). I spoke to Sabra as she had a pleasant smile and demeanor and I was interested in revising my will. I saved her tel. no. and called her when I was ready to work on the will. Sabra was amazing how she helped me with all the details. She carefully covered all the necessary areas that were needed. I would highly recommend Sabra and her Law Group as she is knowledgeable, intelligent, caring, insightful, thoughtful and fair. In essence my experience working with Sabra and Sabra Law Group was top-notch.

Great Lawyer, Great Person
Sabra was recommended to me by one of the strongest, most intelligent women I have ever met. Now that she has represented me, I regard Sabra that way too. I highly recommend her for untangling troublesome knots of all sorts. Negotiating what we could, when we could, IF we could, together in the light of peace and communication early in the process or prior made a huge difference for my case. I first hired Sabra in 2019 when it was clear that my marriage was not working at all and that I was going to eventually relocate with small children so she got a joint custody order put in place. Sabra is a great mediator. She had more meaningful words with my husband in 20 minutes outside of a courtroom than I had had with my husband during the 4 years we had been married! I then hired her for the divorce proceeding in 2021. She communicated thoroughly and respectfully with me throughout the divorce process. My husband vanished when he saw the exceedingly harmless divorce proposal, creating a very tedious legal situation during which Sabra was able to skillfully produce resources for investigation and alternative service. There were just long periods of waiting and hoping. Sabra always provides a space where truths will surface. Unfortunately, during the time of waiting for the plaintiffs response, it became evident that his evasion was part of much more damaging ideological stubbornness and he refused to respond to the legal actions. His neglect had voiced itself through silence. Sabra, able to clearly assess what is just and present it to the courts, firmly slammed the door then.

very helpful
Sabra helped me to negotiate and work through a series of revisions on a pre-nup agreement. She understood my concerns and explained to me in great detail the importance of each part of the document. I'm very happy I decided to work with her, and would again.

I recently received a consultation from Sabra, and she was very helpful and generous with her knowledge regarding her specialty. It ultimately turned out I needed assistance from a lawyer licensed in a different state, and she was very forthright about this which further indicates her professionalism and helpfulness.

Professional and clear communication
I was referred to Sabra through a mutual friend. Upon first meeting with her she put me at ease and listened to all my concerns about divorce. She was able to address and explain all my concerns and what-if scenarios in a clear and concise manner. She helped me outline and begin planning my future. Throughout the entire process, Sabra was accessible and knowledgeable. In areas where I was uncertain, she was able to help me focus on my ideal outcome. Her council throughout the entire process was indispensable.

Best of the best
Sabra was our attorney in our recent co-op purchase. The absolute best of the best. She made a stressful experience way less stressful and was extraordinarily patient and thorough with us. We’ve owned and sold homes before but never worked with an attorney so diligent and concerned about our needs in the process. Very highly recommend Sabra to anyone looking for the best.

I found Sabra online and I am so glad that I did. Working with her and her office was very fast and her work was excellent. This process could have been challenging and she made me comfortable knowing that the details would be taken care of. I recommend her for anyone going through divorce.

She made something very hard very easy
I hired Sabra Sasson to do our uncontested divorce. Sabra was done with the agreement in a couple weeks and what my ex and I wanted was fairly complicated! It was filed immediately and through the court system in 6 weeks. With Sabra, you won't have the horror stories you sometimes hear about! It was very smooth. Also her expertise and experience in real estate was indispensable in navigating a coop apartment buyout (part of our agreement). She is sweet, professional, always available to answer questions and reasonably priced. You would need to have a very good reason to go to someone else. We are so happy to have found Sabra and we mean that sincerely.

Uncontested divorce
My wife and I had an amicable divorce and Sabra helped us to make sure that all of the documents were properly prepared and addressed all of our agreements. I know that this process can be difficult and challenging and take a really long time, and Sabra made the process easy and quick. I highly recommend her to any couple who decides on an amicable breakup.
