A “Persnickety” problem with an Oil Lease
After my husband’s death, I had an issue with getting paid for a mineral rights lease. The check, payable to me, was never issued. This oil company constantly found reasons for holding the payment. After hiring Sara Murphy, she “made it happen.” I like to think that good people make good things happen. I can happily say that she and her professional (and persistent) actions helped me finalize this problem. “Glory Hallelujah!”

Excellent elder care consultation
I contacted this attorney to consult about elder care issues for my aunt in the OKC area. Sara was willing to provide consultation/guidance in the Medicaid assisted living arena by phone as I live in Houston Tx. For personal reasons, I didn’t end up hiring her, but if my circumstances change, I would definitely retain her for her expertise. She is warm, caring and compassionate in her approach.

Highly Recommended
Legalese is frustrating. I like the professionalism and that they explain in laymans terms what you have and what you need. Highly recommended.

Amazing service and very thorough
Sara and Legacy Legal have helped me prepare our wills and how we would like to help our family when we pass. She was extremely helpful and made sure to ask questions so she didn't miss anything. With her help we feel prepared for our future and our family's future. What is best is that as laws change, and they always do, Legacy Legal will keep my will and other paperwork up to date so there are no holes to cause problems in the future.

Principal / President
Sara Murphy and her team take care of all of our legal needs. Both personal and with our Company. She has set up a Special Needs trust and has worked with us with the utmost integrity and efficiency. The one thing I appreciate most in addition to her expertise is how personable she is and has gone the extra mile to ensure that whatever our needs are they were taken care of.
