Professional
I hired Sharon to handle my divorce. She was caring, honest, direct, and discreet throughout the entire process. She gave me appropriate advice and direction and honored my requests as well. I enthusiastically recommend her services.

Experienced and Professional Attorney
I could not be happier with the services I received from Sharon Watson. She is extremely efficient and professional. She was responsive to my phone calls and emails and always available to answer questions. I highly recommend her for any family or criminal law matter.

Unethical
I paid Sharon a $5,000 retainer knowing that it was a "non-refundable: retainer, She took my money and went on vacation the next day. I could not reach her, I had several legal questions, and ended up listening to a non lawyer and dismissed my case. She did nothing for the retainer and although there must be what is called "consideration" for a contract to be legal, she refused to return any of the money. Shortly thereafter, I decided to pursue the divorce; Sharon refused to represent me even though she still had my money. My guess is that she waited for some sucker to giver her the vacation money she needed and she no longer had the money to repay me. I know you may say, well it was non-refundable" and I would agree with you if she had a) done anything for the money and b) been reachable. Not only did she keep my retainer for doing absolutely nothing, she refused to provide counsel after she kept my money. Buyer Beware.

Bad Experience with an Inexperienced Attorney and Extremely Poor Business Woman.
Attorney Sharon Y. Watson in my opinion is very inexperienced Attorney & even worse an extremely poor business woman. In my personal experience she never had time for me or her other clients from listening to her rudely retrieve & respond to messages on her cell phone in front of me, she always had the same response “I don’t have time for this”. All the meetings I had with Ms. Watson after I hired her always seemed rushed. If I asked for more clarification on a legal issue she was going over very quickly, she would become very annoyed and inform me in a threatening way how expensive her hourly rate was. It appears to me that Ms. Watson has taken on too many clients and either does not have the time to give each of them the proper attention or is just incompetent at this point in her career to manage her time properly. In my opinion Ms. Watson is no true professional and at this time in her career is unable to remove her own personal biases from her business decisions & actions.
