Great Choice!
Sabina is high energy and very knowledgeable. She was great about being optimistic but also realistic. I would always leave our conversations feeling informed and comforted that I had a great team working for me. Sabina was very quick to respond to email and phone calls and kept up communication with other parties' lawyer when they were moving slowly. She listened to the results that I had hoped to attain and did her best to understand my family's needs and work towards those goals.

A wonderful and caring lawyer.
Ms. Tomshinsky did a wonderful job for me. I had a male attorney, who has a higher rating, and he took so much money and did nothing for me. Ms. Tomshinsky helped me keep my children, she obtained alimony for me, she di a wonderful job at a reasonable price.

Vigorous advocate for clients; highly recommend Sabina!!
I had a post-divorce matter arise because of the incompetence of the lawyer who handled my divorce. I reached out to Sabina and was desperate at the time because my ex-husband totally disregarded our settlement agreement. Sabina was patient and kind, but also ready to fight on my behalf. I was bereft and Sabina took the time to explain to me the issues with my settlement agreement, what issues we could reasonably litigate, and which ones I would have to accept were not enforceable. The not enforceable parts were because I got duped into thinking I did not need an attorney for my divorce in the first place because my ex-husband and I were "amicable." I honestly felt like Sabina and her entire team took my case personally as though it was happening to them, and I know this is the way Sabina approaches all of her cases/clients. Sabina is a fighter for justice for her clients. I felt heard, supported, and I knew I was in expert hands. Sabina is a vigorous advocate, a fighter for justice, is laser sharp with the ability to identify critical issues that left me financially liable that were missed in my divorce. I never would have known without her help but it could have been avoided if I retained her to handle my divorce in the first place! Most importantly, Sabina does not give up. If she isn't sure of something, she will research it. I really appreciated everything she did for me. Another important consideration in retaining an attorney is that Sabina was not going to let me spend thousands of dollars on issues that could not be litigated. I needed that perspective and guidance, like most clients do in divorce/post-dissolution proceedings, because we are emotional rather than logical. It was hard to swallow at times but I trusted her and her expertise implicitly. She was correct 10/10 times. The take home message is YES you DO NEED your own lawyer in every divorce, no matter how "amicable" you think it is, and Sabina IS the lawyer you need. Don't let the other side retain her; get there first! I should share that I work in the legal field as an expert witness so I work with a LOT of attorneys. Most attorneys are mediocre, at best. A lot are simply horrible. There are precious few Sabina's out there and I am so grateful I found her and that she took my case. This is long overdue, but thank you so much, Sabina and Home Town Law Team!

Divorce consultation
I had a consultation with Sabina today and I would say that she is not only a knowledgeable lawyer, but also a very understanding and responsive person. Going through divorce is already a stressful time for anyone and Sabina can understand this emotional aspect without extra explanation. Her answers and advices were professional and detailed. She was very generous at sharing information or explaining my options for a “game plan”. I feel that she can stand for her client no matter what and protect your rights. I would give her a 10 star review if I could. Thank you, Sabina! You are a great lawyer and a nice person to talk to in general.

WOW
Can not give her enough stars. I had one Attorney literally steal 1,000 from me as I tried to settle my mom's estate living in another state. Sabina was very understanding. Respectful. Kind and most of all efficient. I highly recommend her and her services.

Excellent attorney, outstanding firm Hometown Law
Where do I begin? I have so many incredible things to say about Sabina Tomshinsky and her Hometown Law Firm. I did my fair share of "lawyer shopping" even going so far as to secure one who I was convinced was just padding the clock and we were not on the same page at all! I can assure you I am far from being a difficult client but happily they returned my retainer in full! That brought me to Sabina and I can't even remember that other lawyer's name! I was given an initial consultation which went well over my allotted time but, I knew immediately my search had ended. From the moment I met Sabina and her wonderful staff, Sherri and Joyce, I felt so comfortable in spite of a very difficult legal situation. I cannot imagine Sabina not making anyone feel comfortable and as if you were her only client. She is so intuitive, focused, humorous, energetic, empathetic and knowledgeable. She goes the distance to listen and actually hears what you, the client, has to say and then goes above and beyond to ensure that she has achieved the best outcome legally for you as her client. Sabina and her staff were right on top of everything from the beginning. Just as they had promised, the documents were delivered to me in a most expeditious manner. Joyce and Sherri were very concerned throughout for me and my situation and took time to talk with me every single visit to the office without fail. I knew they were so busy but they stopped to care. I have come to feel Sabina and Hometown Law are friends who really care and were there to guide me through the legal quagmire of divorce. I put my total trust into them so I could survive a very depressing situation. I can happily say the outcome was not what we intended as my husband and I reconciled days before appearing before the Judge. We asked Sabina to dismiss the Petition and she did so without reservation and as anticipated, the document was ready almost immediately. I wholeheartedly would recommend Sabina and Hometown Law without any reservation for your legal needs. I actually will miss them. They truly are amazing.

Highly Recommended***
I could have not asked for someone better to represent me during this time of my life. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. Sabina put mine and my girls needs first and I was treated as a friend rather than a number. She always reassured me when I doubted myself and she valued my opinions as well as calming my nerves and always taking the time to explain the process. She fought hard for me and the girls. Sabina went above and beyond and I could have not asked for a better outcome. The communications from her and her staff were always timely. Her office staff are very professional, reliable, honest, warm and friendly. I want to say, “THANK YOU”, I could not have done this without you. If you need a good divorce attorney, you have that in Sabina Tomshinsky! Veronica

She is **AMAZING**
I consulted with Ms Tomshinsky concerning a probate issue. She gave me concise information & explained everything I needed to do clearly. Because she was clear & concise, I had all the information I needed in less than 20 minutes. This was a *free* consultation, but I know if I need further help, she will be worth the money!

Sabina and her team took care of me during this difficult situation and took the time to make sure I understood everything through the entire process. I would recommend Sabina and her team to anyone in need of a Family Law attorney.

A scary process made easier
Divorce is so scary and overwhelming and the information I received from Sabina was immensely valuable. I could not have gone through this process without her. She was respectful of how I wanted to handle the situation and agreed that I knew the other party best. I appreciated this most. She was very honest and practical about the process, what to expect in different scenarios, and provided advisement on how to handle those situations. She emphasized "agreement" which I felt was very commendable. No one wins and it will not be perfect. Having an attorney who kept me on target with my own decision making was paramount. Be weary of attorneys who say they can "win" and "beat the other party." Again, no one wins and especially when you have children, which I did...you need to stay as civil as possible and keep them first. Sabina emphasized this. The law is complicated and I would not recommend anyone go through a divorce without some type of legal advisement. Sabina was informative, professional, and very quick to respond. I realized I was getting so much advice from helpful family and friends; however, they did not understand the law. I would find myself feeling confused and scared about a decision or what to do next. Once I communicated with Sabina and received her answer...I felt at ease and blocked out all of the other noise. People mean well and want to help you through this process; however, you need a competent legal advisor who can tell you the facts and that for me was Sabina! I would highly recommend her and her team!

So Energetic and Knowledgeable
She is so energetic, positive and knowledgable. I am in general suspicious about lawyers thinking that their motive is to make more money. However, when I met with Sabina, I believed that her motive is to help me. She spent some much time to carefully address all my questions and provided supplement documents as needed. I would recommend her to everybody.
