About me

At the Law Office of Sarah Pfeiffer, we treat each client with understanding and respect.  We will help clients choose among the many paths to resolution for their family law issues, whether that be mediation, collaborative practice, interest-based negotiation or a strong litigation approach. We recognize that each person comes from a unique family environment, so we embrace multi-cultural and non-traditional paths to family resolution.  We place great importance on conflict resolution and education as part of our legal advocacy. The Law Office of Sarah Pfeiffer will represent your interests throughout Southeast Louisiana. We practice in Orleans Parish, Jefferson Parish, St. Tammany Parish and St. Bernard Parish. We help our clients on the Southshore, Northshore, Eastbank, and Westbank, including New Orleans, Gretna, Metarie, Kenner, Covington, Mandeville, Chalmette and the surrounding cities.

  • James Parker Layrisson

    Sarah Pfeiffer is a bright, hardworking attorney who excels at handling family law matters. She cares deeply about our clients. I have referred multiple people to her in the past and I plan to do so again when a friend or client needs a family lawyer in the New Orleans area.
