Very High Praise for Sara and Her Team
Divorce is inherently confusing, scary and difficult. I initially hired a lawyer based on reviews and found that I needed more guidance, reassurance and information. I got all of that and more when I called Sara. Her intuition, attention to detail and professionalism cannot be praised enough. From the first phone consultation, I knew I needed to fire the other guy and hire her immediately. She is thoughtful, considerate and always mindful of the human side of the process. I do not wish divorce upon anybody, but if it is something you have to go through, go through it with someone like Sara. I will forever recommend her services.

Guardianship
I can’t say enough good things about each and every person in this office! They are a fantastic, professional, extremely competent group of women (and men)! I am so grateful for Sara, Victoria, and Candace- they put in so much work in my case to make sure I was prepared and ready to get everything I worked so hard for! I will always go back to this office and to Sara for anything I might need in the future, they fight hard and are so supportive of their clients. They have a well deserved reputation that is absolutely upheld in everything they do. Thank you so much Sara! I wish I could have worked with her longer but it was a short relationship because she handles business!

Made the process EASY!
When I first came to Sara McFalls office I was exhausted and frustrated with a QDRO that was being dragged out by another lawyer that was representing me, FOR FOUR YEARS. The moment Ms. McFall started listening to my situation I felt understood and in the right hands. Her team and her have always been quick to answer questions and emailed me updates often and my legal woos were handled and tied up nicely and quickly for me. I would HIGHLY recommend Sara W. McFall!

Compassionate and Easy to Understand
I was in the middle of a custody dispute with my ex-wife and originally hired another attorney, but had to switch attorneys toward the end of the case, due to a conflict of interest that came up with my other attorney. However, switching attorneys ended up being a very positive outcome, because Sara was able to explain the law and the case to me in a way my previous attorney never took the time to do. This made all the difference and Sara helped me resolve our dispute in a way that was best for everyone involved. If you want an attorney who knows the law well, but who also knows how to talk to you in a way that is easy to understand, Sara is a wise choice. She will be my first choice in the future.

More than a lawyer, a friend.
Sara McFall helped me gain sole custody of my son. Something I'll always be immensely grateful for! We fought a long and painful fight for many years, but she never gave up and the judge was able to see what was best for my child thanks to Sara. She hugged me and she cried with me after the judge signed the order stating that I was to have sole custody of my son, I'll never forget that moment! Sara McFall is not just an amazing lawyer, she's also an amazing human being and she'll treat you like family!

Victory
Sara was excellent and thorough from beginning to end! Tough on me and opposing client she ensured I was not being taken advantage of and saved me in the end a lot of money! I highly recommend her as she won my child support case which was complex, but she took the time and energy to go the necessary steps to win the case! We won!!!

Professional and passionate
I had a consult with Sara and was very impressed. My case was unique because it was in another State, but I wanted professional advice. Victoria assisted us with everything we needed and her consultation has given my wife and I greater confidence as I am doing my case Pro Se in Texas. We could tell how passionate she was about making sure we had the best advice/counsel available and was very thorough throughout the process. I would like to thank Sara, Victoria and the entire staff for their help.

Amazing work ethic.......
I hired Sara to help me obtain a VPO for me and my granddaughter in a very unusual case. After hitting a few walls, she explained to me what she needed me to do in order to get the out come I wanted. Her staff worked hard to comb through all the evidence and mounted an awesome case against a very dangerous man. We did succeed in getting the 3 year order for which I am so thankful for. I would highly recommend her law firm for anyone needing a good family attorney, and I will definitely be using her in the future. Thank you Sara, Devon, Paola, and Candy for all the time and effort you put in to our case.

Simply The Best!
Words cannot adequately express how thankful I am that I was encouraged to use Sara McFall in my very difficult divorce. She is a driven force to be reckoned with and one you want in your corner. She listens, acts accordingly and gives the wisest of counsel, always maintaining the highest ethical standards. Sara is an incredible example of what makes her profession a noble one. Devon Walke, associate attorney in her office, was also an outstanding figure in my case. Add Candace, legal assistant, and you can do no wrong choosing Sara McFall, the best of them all!

Efficient, Reasonable, Representation
She represented me in a McClean County Court with great results. She achieved the desired outcome with minimum effort on my part, keeping me fully informed in a timely basis and personally walking me through all of the required paper work. I would highly recommend her for any type of legal work you need.

A Second Chance
After a night of drinking took a terrible turn, I found myself facing a felony charge. I was referred to Sara McFall through a friend, and I am beyond thankful that I hired her. The level of professionalism and confidence shown in and out of the courtroom by Sara is absolutely remarkable. Sara and her staff are amazing at what they do, and were wonderful in assisting me in every way they could. I will use her for future assistance if needed, and I highly recommend her services.

Contempt case
Sara took my case after 2 other firms & 2 years of bad divorce in Norman. My ex had broken so many laws and rules throughout the proceedings and gotten by with them. My previous lawyers were lazy took advantage of me and my ex was in contempt of court of paying my settlement for over a year. Sarah came onboard as my third set of attorneys and she was kick ass Bad ass. Very ethical and very professional but she is one tough Warrior. She and her assistants do their homework and they do research and they listen and pay attention to their clients . When they go to court they are prepared and they give it all they have to give. They are now the only law firm in the entire county that I would even consider hiring & my entire family feel the Same way.

Competent, Friendly, and Tough Representation
If you are looking for solid top notch representation, look no further than Sara and her staff. From the moment I first met with her I could tell that she knew exactly what she was doing and that she would give my case her full attention. I could not be happier with her handling of my case and would recommend her strongly to anyone.

Excellent
Sara and her team were just plain amazing! For someone going through a custody battle the process can be terrifying. Because of Sara it all seemed like a breeze. Her prices, the way you can count on a time reply to any and all questions were top notch. I highly recommend her with anything you might need.

Life is Good Again~!
Going through ANY kind of divorce is a life changing, unsettling, major event in a person's life. Every single day is a new challenge. When I knew divorce was inevitable, I asked everyone I knew about a good attorney. None were quite right until I googled and found Sara McFall. Sara and her extraordinary legal assistants, Victoria & Candace were absolutely the very best~! They never let me down always answering my questions, calming my fears and always listening to what I had to say. In essence, with efficiency, grace, and vast experience they all guided me to my new life~! You cannot go wrong choosing Sara and her team~! They are human beings that will treat you with integrity and respect while expertly handling a very difficult process with aplomb~! I can't thank Sara, Candace and Victoria enough~!!!

Quick and Painless Divorce
Sara and Tori both helped me out tremendously at a very difficult time in my life. My divorce was fairly simple as divorces go, but without them, I still would have been lost. They walked me through all the necessary paperwork and filed everything very promptly with the county courthouse. I am so glad that I hired Sara and her team! They came through for me in a big way, and now I can move on to a better chapter in my life.
