Exceptionally competent, thorough, and responsive
I highly recommend Sally Fox. I retained her services in an emotionally and professionally distressing civil matter and found her to be honest, empathetic, extremely competent and thorough, and highly responsive to any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. Very pleased with the services rendered and with the final outcome.

AMAZING attorney
After going through two other attorneys in a divorce/custody case that started over a year and a half ago, Sally took over and put an end to the madness. She immediately took action and got the ball moving. She's very direct and honest, and will let you know what's realistic and what she feels the best course of action is (and why), but she ultimately leaves the decision up to you and doesn't encourage you to do anything you don't really want to do. As soon as I met her and talked to her about my case, I could tell that she LOVES what she does. I felt so relieved knowing that my future was in her hands. She is easy to contact, very quick to respond, and unbelievably efficient. She's a pistol and doesn't put up with any BS from the opposing party. Sally finalized my case quickly and maintained elegance and class while dealing with a less-than-savory opposing party/attorney. I can't even express how grateful I am for her service and I would highly recommend her to anybody going through the same thing.

Lawyer for Life
I knew going in that my divorce and subsequent custody case was going to be messy so I wanted an attorney that was sharp enough to stick to the relevant facts of the case. Sally is upfront and tells it like it is whether you like it or not. She comes to trial prepared for anything a crazy ex can throw at you. This case needed an attorney that could think many steps ahead and she does just that. Peace of mind comes at a price but she has been worth every penny. I believe I can count on her to protect myself and my children for years to come.
