Truly wonderful and amazing lawyer! I recommend her!!
Sara took a lot of time helping my husband on his custody case. I can't say how grateful I am for the time she took to look into all of the details and help us out. This lawyer is a highly active lawyer, she is nice and kind. I felt better after everything she did in a little time for my family. I was more than impressed.

Expongement Case: Beautifully Done!
I hired Ms. Stephenson for an expungement case in a county for which I was not a resident. She not only got this done for me in a timely fashion but kept me well informed all through out the way, even though I was about 2 hours away from her, by sending me email and snail mail. I'm very impressed with not only her work but also her character.
