Other than getting divorced I enjoyed my experience!
I was a nervous wreck when I called Sarah Carmody's office. I had just been served divorce papers and other than a speeding ticket I had no experience with working with a lawyer. Attorney Carmody and her staff helped me feel at ease and explained the divorce process and fee schedule very well. I appreciated that Ms. Carmody helped to keep the proceedings on the "high road" and also that she helped me to laugh when the situation called for it. Ms. Carmody and her staff were very efficient and were able to help reach a settlement quickly. I appreciated her honesty and humor throughout the proceedings. I would definitely recommend Sarah Carmody Law, LLC when you need a divorce attorney.

Excellent.
I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone going through a divorce or custody case. I used her services a few years ago for my divorce and again more recently for my custody modification. She is highly knowledgeable about the process, deals in facts, and was able to help us find a resolution that was the best course of action for my son. Sarah did a spectacular job of offering feedback and keeping the lines of communication open. I trust her 100% and would recommend her to anyone, without reservation.

Sarah was amazing!
Sarah helped me through a very difficult and complex custody case. She spent the time to help me understand all of the procedures that we were going though. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal council. Thank you again for all you did!

Sarah is a Phenominal Attorney
I hired Sarah from out of state to represent me in a custody matter. She is extremely thorough, detailed and well versed in the subject matter. She does an excellent job of communicating the status of the proceedings. Sarah does a great job of providing fair and honest counsel regarding the legal matters. On trial day she was very well prepared and did a fantastic job representing my interests. She is a very good litigator and I highly recommend her for your use. In addition, she is a great person and my wife and I both appreciated her honesty, sincerity and genuine persona.

Grateful for Sarah
Sarah is a fair, open and honest attorney who takes time to understand the case and present what is best for all involved. She helps provide a rational point of view during challenging issues. Her paralegal does a nice job assisting when things are busy. I recommend Sarah and appreciated her representing me for child custody issues.
