DUI Dismissed
Looked for multiple lawyers, after talking with two I found Sara. She is very professional and explains every step of the process in detail, guiding me through the process and doing everything. Had a DUI charge, she had got the charge dismissed due to Sara's knowledge of the law and extensive research into my case, best money I have ever spent, thank you so much Sara.

DUI
I was charged with a DUI and thanks to Sara, it got reduced to reckless driving because she told me exactly what I needed to do to make that happen. Hiring her was the best decision I’d ever made. - JRK

The Absolute Best!
We talked to at least 5 different people before finding Sara to help us figure out how to reverse the suspension on my teenage daughter’s license. She was the first person to really listen to the details and proved that the DDS did in fact make a mistake. She not only got them to correct it in a timely manner she made me feel seen, heard, and validated which meant the world to me! Thank you Sara for being our light and guiding us through this when no one else would listen.

She might be little, but she is mighty
From the first call I had with Sara, she put me at ease and explained everything to me in detail. I had a sense that she was there for me and any question I had was welcomed. Each time I reached out to her, she responded in a timely manner. I was amazed at how she spoke to me and helped to calm me down. This was a horrible experience (the DUI), but I did feel that with Sara as my attorney I was prepared for each situation.

DUI reduced
Sara is an extremely professional lawyer who is well versed and uses her knowledge to provide the best services. She was able to get my DUI reduced to a reckless driving and worked with me and the prosecutor to not have any probation either.

Reduced charges
Sara calmed my nerves through our initial call. I was extremely worried, but speaking with her calmed me a bit. She sympathized with me and gave me honest advice. A great listener and professional. At court, she was able to get my criminal traffic charges reduced. I highly recommend her!

DUI Reduced
Sara was awesome right from the beginning. She was very attentive and put my mind at ease several times throughout the process. She worked very hard on my case even with a tremendous work load apart from my case. She wouldn’t take no for answer from the prosecutor and got my DUI reduced to reckless driving which is a complete life saver for my family and I. I’m still in shock that this is behind me and I’m beyond grateful for everything Sara did for me.

DUI Dismissed Completely!
Sara is an amazing lawyer! She is great with communication, whenever I called or texted she would always answer within 20 minutes. She was always there for me 100%. Her personality eased my worries throughout my case. I was going to be charged with a DUI and many other tickets and she got it all thrown out! I believe if I hadn't hired her I wouldn't have had this outcome. Thank you Sara!

DUI Reduced to RD
Sara was truly wonderful. She was extremely clear and thorough with all information, she always answered when I called or texted, she was kind and she set me at ease through a very nerve-wrecking situation. From the very start Sara was in control of the situation and working nonstop to help me. She was detailed and obviously knew what she was talking about. Sara ended up getting my charge reduced to reckless driving, which has changed my life. I would recommend her to anyone.

TOP NOTCH HARD WORKING AND HIGHLY EXPERIENCED
I am extremely Happy with the Excellent service and best possible outcome for my criminal case Sara is a hard working no nonsense attorney who is patient and understanding, available for questions and will explain your case in words that you will understand. After speaking to share about my case and listening to her positive feedback I was convinced that I could find no better attorney to deal with my criminal case. Sara worked hard and kept me informed every step of the way. Sara advised me that my case was dismissed and I did not even have to appear in court. I cannot say enough good things about Sara I’m extremely happy, Sarah saved my reputation and did exactly what she said she would. If you have a criminal case pending you should Run it by Sara first before you secure an attorney, You’ll understand what I’m talking about. And he will be glad that you did!!! Ken P.

An amazing attorney
I can’t overstate how impressed I am by Sara. I contacted her for a consultation to help a friend of mine get a warrant released for a Failure to Appear while he was incarcerated in a different state. Unfortunately she didn’t work in the area that the case was in but she was kind enough to explain in detail what I could do to help my friend. She is very intelligent and also very caring and down to earth. 100% worth her weight in gold. With the advice she gave me I can tell she will move mountains for her clients. She is very passionate and has a strong belief in justice for her clients. I can tell that she goes above and beyond for her clients and wont leave a stone unturned. She impressed me more then any lawyer I have ever spoken to and that’s saying something. I recommend her wholeheartedly. I just wish she was able to take my friends case, but even despite that she has given me pointers on things I can do. And in a very confusing situation with limited information her advice allowed me to help resolve my friends warrant. She’s a gem!
