Best lawyer ever
Sara Webster is the best lawyer that I have ever used. Thankfully I haven’t needed many. She is a sweetheart that will go to battle for you. She knows the ins and outs of the judicial system. If you are in a bad situation, she is the one you want to have your back. Unfortunately it only let me leave five stars. I would leave 10. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ She really helped me get out of a bad situation that was brought upon me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sara is the person you want on your side. Trust me from first hand experience.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney in Bucks County
Sara is a skilled attorney who is both knowledgeable and compassionate in her work. She is well respected in the court and by local authorities, enabling her to leverage her strong relationships for the benefit of her clients. I was charged with a summary offense in Pennsylvania and Sara swiftly jumped onto my case leaving no detail unturned – she was thorough, quick-moving, and effective, quickly getting my case withdrawn. I wholeheartedly trust and respect Sara and recommend her to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney.

Incredible Results!
Sara worked as hard as any paid attorney would have for me despite the fact that she was representing me pro gratis. When the situation appeared to be bleak, she was a ray of hope for my family and me. Opposing lawyers predicted that I would spend time in detention at the outset of this case, but Sara persuaded them to plead for my release by the end. Sara's legal knowledge, assertive approach, and sensitive assistance are greatly appreciated.

AMAZING AND THE BEST
She was the most amazing lawyer I have ever had. She was able to negotiate with parole and got my cases closed and warrants lifted. She also was able to get my restitution out of collections so I don’t have to pay anything. She was so amazing and such a great person. She was so nice and caring. If I could give her 100 stars I would. She made my life so much easier and better, I can’t thank her enough!!!!!

EXECELLENT REPRESENTATION
I have know Sara for the better part of 30 years and she has represented me on several occasions. The outcome of those trials has been nothing short of amazing. Sara's knowledge of the law and courtroom presence is a second to none and I would feel more the comfortable in referring her to anyone in need of assistance. As far as myself would never use anyone else.

This is one hell of a team and I will use them again!

Words caonnot describe what Sara has done for me. Amazing!
When i think if Sara Webster alot of words come to my mind.. Great, strong, independent, intellegent, a fighter, compasionate, factual(she knows the law) and more.. I have seen Sara Webster work in court rooms before my own prior charges and always took notice of her knowledge with the law and strength in the court room. So when i had caught these last charges. One being a felony, i was sure i was doing some time. And my first thought was to call her. This woman is beyond amazing in more then one way. When i had caught these charges i was scared, fearful on which way to go. And had no understanding on what i was dealing with. The knowledge of the law Sara has is beyond belief. And its clear to see as meeting her for the first time. For my case i decided to take a guilty plea. And as i dreaded the outcome. She provided the support and understanding i needed to keep moving forward every step of the way. And for that, i am exstremly grateful. When trial had arrived i wasnt exactly sure of how this was going to turn out. But she did what she did best. And she represented me in the most best way possible! I honestly dont think any other lawyer could of turned this around the way she represented me in court. I got three years of probation with the ability to get off early if i continue in the right direction. That wasnt even considered in my mind. She had faith and surely knew how to represent me in this. Before my eyes she had turned what i was into what i am now and it landed me freedom. I was able to stay free from jail during the process and i am no longer enslaved in my mind if i'm going back. She definitly does great things. And is a great woman all together. I would highly recommend her to any one that is in need to be represented in court and she will always be my go to!

An Assiduous Lawyer
I chose this title for Ms. Webster because I have needed her assistance on two occasions and have a great deal of respect for the job she does on behalf of her clients. She helped me a few years ago getting my son out of trouble and got his charges dismissed. I contacted her about a not so minor (5 point) driving infraction recently and she made it disappear like David Copperfield. Assiduous is defined as showing persistent attention or untiring application. This is what you get when Sara is your lawyer.

Best Attorney
Sara Webster is a smart, honest, and hard working attorney. I was facing my third DUI, and Sara was able to get me a great deal, as well as supporting me in my quest to get sober. God forbid, if I was ever to have any further kind of trouble, I will indeed go back to her.

TRIAL ATTORNEY SARA'S THANKFUL CLIENT
I have been a trial attorney for over 21 years, starting my career as law clerk to the President Judge of the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, was appointed by the judges to the Bucks County Criminal Conflict List on which I served for over 6 years and have been a sole practitioner for over 17 years. When I was subpoenaed to testify before a statewide investigating grand jury last year, Sara Webster was my first and only choice of attorney to accompany me to the proceeding. Sara gave me expert advice throughout the process which led to me ultimately being called as a witness for the prosecution. Sara is intelligent, insightful, thoughtful, well respected, thorough and articulate. Sara’s experience, coupled with her approach to problem solving, make her a terrific attorney. Sara commands the well deserved respect of her peers and has served as Chair of the Criminal Section of the Bucks County Bar Association for many years. I highly recommend Sara Webster.

Outstanding Lawyer!
Ms. Webster is nothing short of outstanding. She is clearly knowledgeable and successful in this field because she is so excellent at what she does; however, she surpasses being great at what she does by going above and beyond as a human being. Not only did she take the time to help me as my lawyer, but she also went above and beyond by being kind to me as a person. For example, it may seem small, but even allowing me to get to know her dog helped me feel at ease during a very stressful time and day, and it is one small example of the ways in which she demonstrated that she is a caring human being, not just a cut-throat lawyer. Sara is a veteran lawyer, obviously highly respected in the courthouse and around town, as you can note when you walk around with her - and all for good reason. Thank you, Sara, for your authenticity, helpfulness, professionalism, and expertise.

Nothing short of amazing! Her determination, skill and ability to navigate the criminal justice system on my behalf kept me free
Nothing short of amazing. Sara Webster delivered big-time in my case and believed in me when I had given up on myself. She negotiated the seemingly impossible in a very strong prosecutorial case against me. She negotiated my freedom. I am not an inmate because of her determination, skill and ability to navigate the criminal justice system on my behalf. Oprah doesn’t have anything on Sara when it comes to insight, passion, natural curiosity, charm and an interest in others, especially her clients and their welfare. By all objective standards incarceration was looming large & almost a foregone conclusion in my case. Priors, mandatory minimums, a very strong case by the prosecution coupled with my unwillingness to cooperate in my own defense made my case difficult. I knew this. When I searched for an attorney, I was seeking mitigation at best with the least amount of time I’d have to serve as the goal. Of course, the reputation, experience and skill of counsel matter greatly. Intangibles matter as much to me. I found Sara Webster and others on the NORML website and proceeded to further my research. Sara immediately stood out. Kindness matters in all things great and small, and her participation in organizations that enhance all life globally and locally, as well as her outstanding public service and other affiliations for the betterment of the community and the world towered over other attorneys immediately, starkly and exclusively. Within seconds of our initial phone conference, I knew I had found my advocate. Before I could even finish with the details of my case, she accurately filled in the blanks and added positive spins I hadn’t considered. She gave me glimmers of hope that she kept radiating for the duration of my case in spite of the odds against me. Having had experience with criminal attorneys in similar matters outside of PA gave me more perspective as to what a gem she truly is. Her first-class staff is a reflection of her and they are attentive, responsive, responsible and kind to the core. Good people attract and keep other good people. Without her skill in developing relationships, navigating the judicial system, charming and disarming the prosecution, gracefully engaging the toughest judge in the courthouse, I would likely be little more than roadkill. During continuances, I witnessed days and days of heavy handed, cringe-worthy sentences and prepared for the worst. Instead, she negotiated an alternative to incarceration. Understating it, I am still in shock and disbelief I am grateful to Sara Webster, Esq. for making this happen. It wasn’t supposed to, but it did. If you need a great lawyer you’d be wise to retain Sara. Part of retaining a great attorney is to be brutally honest (especially with yourself), direct and detailed without being histrionic or unrealistic. Know what you want and be concise and succinct. Your attitude, respect, trust and participation has a direct correlation to the kind of partnership you develop with a good attorney. All criminal attorneys cost money and you usually get what you pay for. In my case, I got more than I invested, but that is a matter of perspective for every individual. If money is the be-all and end-all in your life, it will overshadow your view of your representation and the outcome, however positive it may be and it will affect your relationship. This is coming from someone of extremely limited means and a caring family where sacrifices were made to ensure great counsel. It was worth it. What’s the tag on freedom anyway?

The moment of truth
Pushing the process of law beyond conventional thinking is not a common practice in today's legal profession. Setting precedents is not an everyday occurrence. Following standard operating procedure is not exactly Sara Webster's strong suit. Getting the best possible outcome is. I know because I have benefited greatly from it on more than one occasion. In the courtroom, the more there is at stake, the more critical it becomes to have an advocate who knows the law inside and out, can think on their feet and adapt on the spot. Sara Webster knows when to be conventional and when it is time to be unorthodox. I, for one, am much better off for it. Perhaps a more telling endorsement is that in the midst of all the constant shuffling in today's courtroom, other lawyers stop their bustling and pay close attention when Ms. Webster is making her case. It is something to behold when other clients turn to their lawyers and ask if that approach would work for them. No one can really predict how his or her attorney is going to perform in court until it happens. That's the moment of truth. There are those who follow standard operating procedure to the letter and move on to their next client. Then there is Sara Webster.

Compassionate, experienced, knows the law and the system
Sara Webster handled my teenager's difficult journey through the juvenile justice system, protecting her rights and getting the system to work for US, rather than our being overwhelmed and at the mercy of the system. She told us all our options at every step, guiding us so we made choices that we could live with and were in my daughter's best interests now and for her future. We could not have gotten through this without Sara on our side.

Disgusting lawyer
She forgets what she is saying while in front of the judge. She makes many mistakes as she speaks. She makes a joke and a mock out of victims. She is a terrible person. Do not hire her! She may have been a good lawyer 10 years ago before she started loosing her mind, and her words as she speaks

"I have known Sara since I first started the practice of law in Doylestown some 29 years ago. She has an excellent reputation in the community for her work both as a criminal defense lawyer and a personal injury lawyer. She is one of those attorneys who keeps a notebook on the nightstand so she can jot down her thoughts about a case whenever it comes to her. Creative and aggressive, she is one of the best attorneys in her field."
