Nothing short of incredible
Sarah is amazing. I have used her twice and would never use anyone else. In a case that seemed hopeless, she turned it around so the truth was presented and known for a win for our family. Can’t say enough good.

Hard working fighter
Sarah is the best attorney. I have spent almost 2 yrs with her. She worked on my difficult case and never had to worry about anything. I would hire her again in a Instant. HIRE THIS WOMAN. You will NEVER regret it.

Highly Recommend
Sarah was terrific from Day 1 until the case was settled. She spent a lot of time answering our questions, addressing our concerns, & explaining the legal process to us. She was honest with us about what we could realistically expect (best & worst case scenarios) and outlined steps that could be taken prior to the court date to get the best possible outcome. In the end, Sarah was able to negotiate a better outcome than we ever expected. While we hope we are never in need of a criminal defense attorney again, we would definitely hire Sarah again & we definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.

Speechless!
I was facing a DUI charge and was very scared. I had never been arrested before and had no idea where to begin. Sarah came highly recommended by another attorney and her fees were very affordable. From the moment I spoke to her, I felt at ease. She had a plan of action and as difficult as it was, I trusted her. We decided to take my case to a jury trial after looking at all my options. I was blown away watching Sarah advocate for me in court. She captivated the jury and after a long two days, the jury returned a NOT GUILTY verdict. I cannot begin to explain how thankful I am for Sarah. She is simply the best and she gave me my life back.

Amazing family law attorney
I was blindsided with a nightmare situation and I had no idea what to do or where to turn. I decided to call the firm after a positive experience with another attorney there a few years earlier to see if they did family law. My call was then returned by a fallen angel. From the first conversation Sarah listened to my side and I could tell she would go to war for me. She has every quality you want not just in a lawyer but a person and it's only amplified when she is doing her job. There was some urgency to my case. Literally the day we spoke she was exchanging texts with me that night. She was already working on my case and had drafted a first draft of our motion while also having the patience to be there for my questions and concerns. And I had a lot. She genuinely made me feel like my case and fighting for me was the most important thing she had going on. It was the hardest situation I've ever faced, staring at a final judgement saying I had zero rights with the 2 little guys that mean the most in this world. And having to get on a plane to go to work in less than a week. Sarah had a motion filed immediately and a hearing within a week (which seems kind of unheard of). As an imperfect being and not knowing exactly what I was up against I sort of bombarded her with every bad thing I have ever done and sensitive details of a marriage that didn't work. I never felt looked down on, I never felt I couldn't talk to her about something. She calmly told me how we would handle it and built her defense. I can't stress enough how important that is. Fortunately I've never been in any family law situation before but I can imagine it all can get kind of ugly just because of the circumstances. It feels like there is nothing more sacred and important than becoming a parent to someone. To not be judged, to have someone that understands, it means the world. Of course there is a happy ending too. I went from 8 hours supervised visitation a month to joint custody and all the time I asked for with my kids. Sarah was nimble enough to spot an opening in the hearing and brought it all together perfectly when I didn't even think a settlement and ammendment was a possibility. Had it been left to the judge I have no doubt we would have won but there would have been more hearings, more back and forth, more ugliness. But it ended with Sarah, my ex wife and I sitting at a table agreeing to the terms I was seeking and leaving it in a place where we can actually co-parent when the dust settles. I don't know what else to say. I'm not a person who writes reviews but I feel strongly about the person and lawyer Sarah is. Sarah Illg is a light in a dark place. She's trustworthy, patient, tenacious, passionate and strong. I will forever be grateful to her for it.

Faith Restored by great solid work ethic and a great mind
Mrs. Sevcech came ready to fight for me in court. She understood my case and she understood the environment in which we were going to be enduring. She restored my faith in family law attorneys, in that she sought to fully understand my case circumstances in alimony and then worked on preparing me for my case. I spent two years going through a divorce and my previous attorney did none of the things she helped me work through. She was completely impressive and shot straight with me. She found my weaknesses and worked with me to make me stronger in the eyes of the court and case. On the day of court, and as a true professional, Ms. Sevcech went to work and between her and the Judge handled the hearing as fair and caring practitioners of the law. She has restored my faith and willingness to work with attorneys should the need ever arise. She has set the bar and continues to rise above it. Thank you ma'am. - Peter Nunn

Defacs appointed attorney
It's extremely hard for me to put into words the amount Sarah has actually helped me. I found out that I had a daughter in February of 2021 and through Defacs, Sarah was blessed upon me, and was able to close my case in November 2022. She did an amazing job and was able to obtain joint custody/legitization for me. However, in April 2023 my daughter was placed into foster care, due to domestic violence incidents at the maternal home. I immediately freaked out and contacted Sarah right away! This absolute angel of a woman has helped me to gain full custody of my daughter, get my daughter out of a really bad domestic violence situation, and help me to make sure my daughter will have the best life ever! She did all of this out of the kindness of her heart and I honestly don't know where my daughter would be right now if it wasn't for her!

Guardian Angel!
What lawyer would give you 24-7 access to her? Sarah did. What lawyer would respond to your text messages at 2 A.M.? Sarah did. What lawyer would respond to your calls and messages while she was on vacation? Sarah did. What lawyer would console you when you were at the absolute depths of despair? Sarah did...many, many times. I previously thought that the death of my parents would be the hardest thing I would ever have to go through. I was wrong. The unexpected death of my marriage and my family completely devastated me, and I don't think I could have made it through that without Sarah. I can't adequately express the gratitude I feel to her for all that she has done for me except to say, that I am forever in her debt!

Sarah will fight for you!
We have been using Sarah for around 6+ months for a Juvenile case for my son. She has been on top of everything we needed. A+ communication! She is not only a top attorney but a caring attorney who makes you feel like you are apart of the family. I highly recommend Sarah and her team for anything she can help you with. You will not be disappointed if you are wanting an attorney who cares about you and is not some attorney who is just in it for money. Sarah is definitely worth every cent!

Caring, knowledgeable, dependable
Sarah has been the best attorney I’ve ever worked with! I will refer everyone I can to her. She helped my son I’m so many ways to get his life back in order and with the school. She listens, truly cares about YOU! Her fees are reasonable and you will get more than money can buy. You want Sarah on your side. I personally recommend her to everyone needing help in her specialities. You don’t get just another lawyer, you get a friend and new family member.

Amazing Attorney!
I hired Sarah to represent me in a custody modification. Going through any type of litigation naturally brings anxiety, but from the very beginning, Sarah and her paralegal Gina always made me feel comfortable and important. I am sure Sarah has many other clients due to her reputation and success, but she always made me feel like a priority. She was attentive and never made me feel bad for asking questions. She took the time to explain every part of the process. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case. If you are looking for an attorney that treats you like family rather than just a file number, look no further. If you are looking for an attorney that will go the extra mile, look no further. Sarah is the only attorney I will ever trust to handle my family law needs.

Sarah Sevcech Review
Sarah was very professional, detailed and timely when handling my contract review. She was extremely busy, yet she made me feel like the priority. She identified details that I completely missed which allowed me to protect myself and execute the agreement to my maximum benefit.

Personal Injury, non-commercial
Sarah did a GREAT job for me. Going in I was only hoping to get my medical bills covered, something I would have come up short on if I'd handled it myself. But Teague Law was able to do not just that, but got me a substantial settlement, too.

Amazing Attorney & Person!!
Sarah is an excellent attorney, as well as an awesome person. She did an amazing job with my case and went over and beyond with representing me - and, it was definitely reflected in the outcome of my case. She was very informative and made sure to explain everything in great detail. She never gave up and continued to be optimistic through it all. 10/10 recommend!

Sarah helped me with a custody/legitimation case. I was very pleased with the outcome. She is professional, knowledgeable and prompt in returning messages or phone calls (which is really nice when you have questions) I would definitely trust in her again in the future. Thanks Sarah!

Excellent
She had everything laid out perfectly for when we got to court she advised me to knock my stuff out before my case that would have been required and it helped me get my charges reduced and keep them off my record. She did a fantastic job and I hope to god I don’t but if I get into any other trouble she’ll be the first I call.

AMAZING ATTORNEY!!
I received child support papers from my ex husband... I was referred to Sarah by someone that had used her. Sarah first spoke with me over the phone for nearly 30 minutes listening to my situation and telling me my options. I knew immediately I was going to retain her and told her to send me an invoice so we could get started. Sarah is always accessible and available. I could text, email or call her! She did an amazing job with my case and we had a great outcome! I’d highly recommend her to anyone and I’d most definitely use her again if the need ever arises. She’s not only a terrific attorney but a great person all around!

"Sarah works hard for her Clients. She fights at every turn and never gives up. I watched her trip up an investigator on the stand and get them to admit her client was innocent. Sarah is one of the most talented and bright young Attorneys I have ever met - she is definitely someone you want by your side."
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Sarah is one of the best young lawyers in Georgia. I have witnessed her achieve dismissals on cases where other lawyers would have given up. Recently, she saved an innocent medical student's career by getting seven separate warrants dismissed prior to the client getting arrested. This is a complicated process. Lesser lawyers would have not worked on the case until the defendant turned in on the warrant. Instead of waiting, Sarah sprang into action and got the warrants dismissed immediately. Her soon-to-be medical doctor will never have to explain that she was wrongfully arrested."
