Heaven Sent
Sarah is an absolute professional. When she took my husband's cases, she was respectful of his medical health and advocated for just resolutions. I would recommend hiring Sarah to anyone and will continue to chose her for myself, if I'm ever in the situation to do so again. Her resourcefulness and strong will is exactly what we needed to close my husband's cases. I can't thank her enough.

Order of Protection case
Mrs King was amazing to say the least. She assisted me with an Order of Protection against my child’s father. She was always prompt when I would contact her and treated me so greatly! In court, she was attentive and always made sure I was okay. In the end, we got what we wanted and I am very pleased with the outcome.

Amazing help in hard times!
Sarah was amazing in helping me through the process after my assault. I could tell she really cared about what happened to me as a person, and really wanted to help make sure I was kept safe. Her knowledge was extensive and she was great at thinking through the steps ahead. Highly recommend her if you want an attorney that provides true personal service. Restores your faith in humans helping each other for the greater good.

On Point Lawyer
Sarah was on top of my case from the first minute. Always responded with well thought out and well informed answers and made herself available for communication during the whole process. Top Notch.

She’s an angel!
We hired Sarah for a dispute with an unruly and unrealistic neighbor that was causing us more stress than we could handle on our own. From the first meeting with Sarah until the very successful end, she was the calm breeze that kept us sane. Her open and honest communication kept us in the loop the entire time she was working with us and much appreciated. She went to bat for us like protective pit bull and we will forever be grateful!

Represented by Sarah in a criminal case
I only rated her 5 stars because I couldn’t do 6. Sarah was recommended to me and I quickly found out with good reason. She is always quick to respond and is thourough in explaining what to expect next. Sarah was very comforting throughout the entire process while fighting for me with persistence and dedication. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for an exceptional attorney.

Great Attorney
One of the best lawyers I have had the pleasure to work with. She is smart, a hard worker, and she truly cares about her clients! I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her to represent me if I needed a lawyer.

Very impressed!
Mrs. King represented me regarding BWI charges. Tenn. wildlife officers = entrapment! No way to prove it.....Attorney King acted professionally and ethically but took them to task, nonetheless! More than I can say for the officers....charges dropped and case dismissed! Thank you!

Client of Sarah’s in an employment suit
Sarah is very knowledgeable and is a hard worker. She was recommended to me by another attorney who formally worked in my profession. She is tenacious and not afraid of a big fight. She’s not only my attorney, but also my friend. She has helped me gain my confidence back, and helped me feel empowered again.

Took off with my money
Sarah was a horrible lawyer. She took off with my money and change her number. I would NOT recommend her at all. The judge told my husband that he got him a public defender because his lawyer ran off. She got over $5000 from me. ⭐000⭐00000
