    I would highly endorse this lawyer. I have known Sandra for a number of years. She and I have been involved in various legal organizations including the Montgomery County Inns Of Court together. I know she has extensive family law knowledge and experience. That is the reason I don't hesitate to call her when I need to bounce ideas, about a case, off someone. She knows what she is doing in cases involving divorce, custody, or child support. I find her perspective very helpful. She is well respected in the legal community. Whenever I have seen her in court she appears professional, focused, and well prepared. It's apparent that she truly cares about her clients and is there to give 100% to them.
