Exceptional Attorney
Sarah deserves to be in the Super Lawyers list in Denton County. She got my charges dismissed. She is very knowledgeable, professional, responsive and truly stand by your side to get you justice. She is honest towards her profession than trying to make some monetary gains. She is worth every penny. Her staff is by far the best and very responsive. So glad I made the right choice in selecting the best attorney in my case. I highly recommend her.

Attorney with integrity, compassion and professionalism.
Our son had the good fortune to have Sarah Roland represent him and we do not hesitate to recommend her as an exceptional attorney. Sarah is thorough, frank yet compassionate and non-judgmental. She brings a strong sense of professionalism and integrity to the legal system, and communicates openly and frequently with clients and their family. Her results are outstanding.
