Super support on remote closing
I closed on my home of 41 years in an out of town closing with a mobile notary. I was originally expecting a zoom closing but it did not happen and I was left by myself with a notary who was not fully familiar with closing documents. Thanks to Sara and her staff who reviewed the closing documents in advance I was not completely lost. In the end all worked out well.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with Sara on dozens of legal matters over a period of years. She is a fantastic litigator and easily the best real estate attorney I have ever worked with or against. Sara is also a powerful negotiator who is always able to see 3 steps ahead of her opponent to ensure the best possible outcomes for her clients. On top of that all, Sara is a great person, who really cares about her clients, colleagues, and community. If anyone asks me to recommend a Michigan lawyer, Sara is my first choice."
