I was referred to Sarah by a friend of a friend because I really had no idea what I was doing in looking for a divorce lawyer (I had initially tried to do everything myself). I must say that the one bright spot out of my divorce was the work of Sarah. She not only looked after my needs but also of what was best for my two young boys. While I'm sure she has tried hundreds if not thousands of divorce cases, however, she truly made it feel like my case was important to her and that she was working exclusively on mine. I know that isn't true because of how professional, compassionate and organized she was she must get referrals from previous clients all the time. While I don't wish a divorce on anyone as it is an extremely stressful and sad time, Sarah was the one constant that I could depend on throughout the whole process. Anytime I called she either answered my call then or if she was with another client or in court she would get back to me within the hour. I cannot stress enough how happy I am with her work. My case was "ripe" on March 31st and I was divorced on April 1st. Every step along the way she kept me informed of what was going on and where I needed to be and at what time. I would recommend Sarah without any reservations to my best friend, relative, colleague, or anyone with whom I had respect for and cared about. She was a Godsend

Sarah Novak Nesbitt: Distinguishing Characteristics :
. Exceptional professionalism and knowledge of Family Law. Experienced.
. Genuine interest and practice of keeping client fees contained.
. Provide a realistic picture of what you need to know versus what you want to hear ( asset versus income issue)
. Ability to quickly and accurately assess your situation and provide a best case, worst case and most likely case scenario ( in my case they preformed better than their most likely case scenario).
. Will willingly & actively pursue an issue on you behalf even though Sarah may assess it has a high risk of succeeding .
. Personable & Engaging. Emotionally Intelligent. Ability to work with a wide variety of people & personalities.
. I wouldn't think twice about engaging Sarah again, if needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
.Given my considerable experience with family law professionals Sara has a distinct competitive advantage to many family law practitioners.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Sarah served as a best interest attorney for our client. From the beginning and throughout the difficult case she was thorough, responsive, and always kept the best interests of the children at the forefront. I have also referred several clients to Sarah for post-divorce retirement orders. It is always a pleasure to work with Sarah.
