Divorce Client
I came to Sarah with the goal to end my 16 year marriage in a way that would least impact my children. From my first meeting with Sarah I was impressed by her knowledge of the law and compassion for my circumstances. I knew she would fight for me but at the same time would not let my emotions lead to something I would regret in the future. Thank you Sarah, it has been eight months since the divorce was finalized and my children and I couldn’t be happier.

Outstanding divorce attorney
I contacted Sarah after she was referred to me by a friend. My wife filed for divorce and tried to take everything I had worked for. The case went on for a little over a year and my divorce was recently finalized. Sarah was able to work out a deal so that I was able to keep the house and pay minimal alimony due to the length of our marriage and difference in income. I can't speak on her abilities regarding criminal matters but I highly recommend her for a divorce.

Attorney Sarah Blake - Invaluable!
Sarah Blake has consistently demonstrated superior knowledge of the law to assist our family’s needs over the years. We have consulted her several times both for our own needs such as Power of Attorneys, Domestic-related Questions, and Small Claims Issues. I’ve felt very comfortable referring family and friends to her for their needs as well. She is caring and thorough; her paralegal is excellent too! I know that anytime I need legal advice Sarah Blake and her team will present quality, affordable, and timely advice. Highly recommended.

Property Damage Claim
My vehicle was damaged by another driver and their insurance company refused to accept full responsibility. I went as far as filing a lawsuit in order to get them to pay the full value of the damages done to my vehicle. Prior to my court date, I retained Sarah to represent me at the trial. Within days of hiring Sarah, she was able to get the insurance company to pay the full value of my claim and I didn't even have to go to court. Thank you Sarah.

Augusta Car Accident
Sarah handled my car accident case after I was hit by another driver on Walton Way. After the insurance company refused to offer me a fair settlement, Sarah quickly filed a lawsuit. Sarah did a great job at trial and got me a judgment almost three times more than what the insurance company was offering.

Excellent Injury Lawyer
I am very happy with the service I got from Sarah and her firm. After my car accident, they were able to get me the treatment I needed which I would not have received on my own. Her office was quick to respond to my e-mails and my case was settled very fast.
