Legal documents
I was referred to Sara Meyers by a good friend, who said she did a very good job handling his will and the other related documents. My wife I spent time with Sara, reviewing our financial and family situation with her, and found her to be highly competent and understanding. She spent time considering our situation and developing a strategy. We discussed this plan, and after some time decided on what action to take, and then had her develop the documents. We found it difficult to fully comprehend all of it, and asked for another meeting to gain a better understanding of what we were agreeing to. She was more than willing to give us the extra time, and explained everything in much detail, making my wife and I feel more confident. We would highly recommend her for legal services.

Will
Sara was very attentive to our concerns and needs while developing our will and health care proxy. She was also very helpful while dealing with my mother's needs a couple of years ago and actually came to the hospital to execute documents in a "difficult" time. We have and will continue to recommend her to our friends who require these type of services.

Medicaid/Nursing home
A friend of ours recommended Sara Meyers to us and we are very glad they did. Upon entering her office we felt right at home and were very happy with her service and professionalism. She handled our case which we thought would be difficult, with extreme ease. We would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a highly competent attorney.
