Professional and compassionate
Sharon helped me through a very difficult and long separation and divorce. She was honest and direct and because of her years of experience was able to advise me no matter what arose. She always returned my emails and calls in a timely manner, and was very conscientious of the fact that my time was limited and we mainly were in touch via email, saving me both time and money. She had a no nosense approach to getting the job done while still being compassionate during my difficult time. Her staff was very accomodating as well. After my divorce was finalized, I also used her for an issue that arose as backlash to the divorce. She also was my attorney for the sale of my home. I intend to retain her again to create my will or a trust for my children. I have great confidence in her abilities.

Sharon was terrific!!!
Sharon was referred to me by a good friend. After meeting with 3 other lawyers for consultations it was a breath of fresh air to meet Sharon. She simplified everything in terms I can understand. As opposed to the others who tried to impress me with their knowledge & terminology. She broke everything down for me & even comforted me when I cried. I didn't feel like I was rushed or just another $$$$. I'm more relaxed about my lousy situation, although it's far from over.

Many thanks!!
Couldn't give a better review. From the very start, Sharon was the consummate professional. She was very knowledgable in all her answers to my questions and provided the options available and the possible outcomes, yet leaving me to make the choice as I thought best. When push came to shove, she worked it out to make a fair settlement and got the job done. All costs were disclosed, nothing hidden. Most importantly, with the stress of a divorce, Sharon and her office made me feel welcomed and like there was truely someone on my side. I would gladly recommend Knobbe, Laho, Gradishar, and Mack (KLGM) to anyone, and already have. Thanks again Sharon to you, your partners and your staff for making one of lifes hardest things a little easier.
