About me

“I strive to handle every case with the most effective combination of zealous advocacy, pragmatism, and cost-efficiency that I can deliver. In no other practice area do clients ‘live their case’ each day the way that they do in family law matters. Every person who walks in my door deserves not only a focused litigation strategy, but patience, attention and respect.”

Sarah provides her clients with a framework of straightforward strategic advice that is grounded in realistic expectations without sacrificing the uncompromising quality of its results – whether such results are rendered in the courtroom, or written at the mediator’s table.   She believes that law is an ever-evolving practice, and, toward that end, has established a niche of keeping her fellow practitioners aware of the most cutting-edge Georgia case law.  She is a regular presenter at statewide family law conferences and seminars.

Prior to forming Hoelting & McCormack LLC, Sarah spent more than ten years at the family law firm of Kessler & Solomiany LLP, where she became its first female partner.

Sarah met Rebecca, her law partner, and Cristy, their paralegal, at the downtown Atlanta law firm of Long Aldridge & Norman LLP (now McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP) where they engaged in both family law and regular civil practice.  Sarah grew up in the metropolitan Atlanta area.  She shares her household with her husband, Kevin, Director of Editorial Production for Turner Sports / NBA Digital, their sweet son, Dylan, and their indomitable daughter, Lark.


Our firm philosophy is simple: Treat clients as they wish to be treated. What does that mean to you?  Calls are timely returned.  Bills are meaningful.  Strategy is shared.

We both had the talent to meet at the same large-scale Atlanta law firm and the intuition to know that we could best serve our clients in a different context: a specialized family law firm of our own design. From this concept arose the Hoelting & McCormack partnership.

When we are hired as your counsel, we know that you are placing your family and your family’s future in our hands as part of a singular gesture of trust and confidence. We seek to earn and re-earn that trust and confidence with each day, each filing, each mediation, and each court appearance.
