Amazing and focused
Sarah is amazing. She is focused and does what she needs to for her clients. Sarah represented me for a minor traffic ticket for forgetting to register my truck as it was a lease. After explaining my situation to the prosecutor, the charge was dismissed.

green card application
I contacted Mrs. Anjum for a green card application. My case wasn't very easy but Sarah made sure everything went fine. I couldn't be happier with her positive and tenacious personality. Her work ethic is off the charts. My family will always be grateful for everything she has done for us. Do yourself a favor and let her remove all the stress from your shoulders.

The minute I hired Sarah to represent the foreclosure on my home she hit the ground running! She was in immediate contact with many resources (lawyer for the bank, Magistrate, Neighborhood Housing and many colleagues) to navigate the best way for me to keep my family home with minimal cost to me. Sarah helped me fill out paper work and identified MANY scams that I received via mail and phone call. She keeps me informed and is diligent in details that are important. I absolutely recommend Sarah Anjum for your Legal matter!!

Knowledgeable and responsive
Sarah has given me sound legal advice on more than one occasion for very differing matters. She responds in a very timely fashion, and with detailed advice.

Sarah was wonderful. She first supplied me with all the information I needed concerning divorce and child custody. Due to her advice and well-founded guidance, I am now amicably divorced, with very little money spent on my part, and have gained custody of my children.

This attorney is no longer active
Does not answer or return phone calls. Does not answer emails. The only place I got a response was Facebook and at first whoever answered on there said "Sarah cannot represent you." Then, whoever answered on Facebook said they would look at my charges. Then they stopped responding to me altogether. Facebook account shows no posts at all since 2020. I am a white male; I am not Middle Eastern nor female so maybe that's what the deal is.
