Looking for direction
I contacted Sarah because I needed some advice about how to handle a legal situation. I was not referred. I picked her from the list of lawyers in Mason City, IA on a search. I read her profile and liked what I read. She provided me with direction on how to handle my situation. She advised me that I would need to complete a form and pay for a consultation on my situation. I agreed, however, when I provided her with more detail, she let me know that legal services would not help and directed me to another solution. I am grateful that she provided me with that little bit of advice without a charge. Even though I was willing to pay for the consultation.

Fast and Efficient
My husband and I went to see her to about getting a durable power of attorney for my husband. She did an awesome job. it was done fast and efficiently. I have recommended her to many of my friends. On 11/28/16 I had a friend that had a major stroke. I called and gave her the information I thought she needed. Sarah went to the hospital and had all the papers ready for the family member to sign so things could get done. She was contacted 12/5/16 and it was done the same day!

Great Lawyer!
From the first call to the final signing, Sarah was a true professional and very knowledgable on the law. I had her represent me in a divorce case with custody involved. She listened and advised me to get the case solved promptly and fairly. She was very prompt on notifying me of current events. I would not hesitate in using her again, if I ever need a lawyer again.

I felt a direct connection with her as she was compassionate with my case. I really appreciated her being open and honest with me pertaining laws. I highly recommend her as she is very professional and knowledgeable.

Couldn't have picked anyone more helpful!
Sarah does great work. Very attentive to the tasks at hand and willing to go that extra step to make sure things get handled properly. Couldn't have picked a better person to handle my case. I will continue to use her in the future. She was understanding and willing to work around my crazy schedule while at the same time getting the job done.

So happy with the outcome of my Grandson's case
Sarah handled a criminal case for my Grandson in Iowa. I live in Seattle, Washington and she communicated with me via telephone and email to hire her. We were extremely pleased with the outcome of his case and her professionalism. I highly recommended her!

Extremely knowledgable and effective
Sarah Reindl was instrumental in solving a recent employment issue at our business. Without her guidance a bad situation would have escalated. She was informative, solved the problem by providing us with a step by step procedure to resolution. I can't thank her enough.

A great lawyer
Sarah was a great match for our case. She was quick with responses and easy to reach when we had a question. Sarah worked very hard throughout our case. She truely cared about our case. We found her by default but would reccomend her to everyone!

Knowledgable and Compassionate
Ms. Reindl is compassionate and thorough. She offered me sound legal advice and helped me navigate through the intensely confusing maze of the court system. She understands how much of an emotional upheaval custody issues are and was able to put me at ease. Sarah is intelligent, but was able to explain the process and the steps that I needed to take to get the best result in clear and concise manner and made the whole process less intimidating. She is an excellent listener and very responsive. I highly recommend her.

Quick divorce with a difficult spouse
I was very happy with Sarah's service through a very difficult divorce. She took things into her own hands and made sure all bases were covered without my having to ask. I felt very confident in her ability to get the job done without prompting from me. She did it quickly and sufficiently. I would most definitely hire her again.

Feeling ripped off
Sarah wouldn't allow me to talk directly to her over the phone or in person. She would only communicate via email, even when I asked if I could speak directly with her. Also when I tried to communicate with her about refuding my money, she did not respond. A total breakdown in communication. Communication is key to good attorney/client relationship. I feel like I got ripped off.

Response from Sarah Reindl October 4, 2021
You chose not follow my written point by point advice/direction because it was not what you wanted me to tell you. We communicated more than 15 times as part of the consultation and I read all that you sent before I finally told you the consultation was concluded. I must say it like it is even if it is not what you want to hear. You were repeatedly abusive toward me. I definitely tried to help you. Please call me to discuss.

RUDE
I spoke to this attorney a few times regarding a legitimate case of discrimination based on disability. She is by far the RUDEST, most uncivil attorney I have ever spoke to. She was angry that I did not hire her IMMEDIATELY the first time after she gave me some simple advice. She was outraged that she gave me free advice without me hiring her afterword. She later told me not to ever contact her again. Beware, if she does not always get her way, she will likely hurt you more than help you.

Response from Sarah Reindl October 13, 2016
I'm sorry to read this from you. I remember you and I communicated with you repeatedly trying to help you--more so than I usually would do for free because I knew you really needed help. However, my decision to ask you to stop contacting me should not be construed as an opinion as to the merits or lack thereof of your case but that I am not your attorney: we have no attorney/client relationship and I do not wish to represent you. Please seek legal representation to help you as your case may be subject to time limitations.
