Phenomenal Rock Star
Sarah was extremely professional and very easy to talk to. The best thing was no empty promises. She was up front about possible outcomes and didn't promise any "I can win this" garbage. She ended up winning it all because of her hard work ethic and attention to detail. Saved me years of pain and misery! She is well worth the cost! Highly recommend!

Great Divorce Attorney
Sarah was my divorce attorney. It is obviously a very difficult situation to deal with. From the very beginning, I felt comfortable and confident with Sarah and Allie. They are both so kind and thoughtful. Allie was easy to reach and very competent and helpful. Sarah was real with me and gave me great advice that kept me from making stupid decisions. She understands the law and how things will play out. She prevented my case from dragging on. They were both also very kind to the other party and tried to make it easier for all involved. Sarah and Allie are true blessings to those of us who unfortunately need this type of service.

Hire her
I went in for a consultation and after 15minutes, I knew she was the one. Sarah is about as real and raw as you can get. My case represented some unique challenges. Before I left her office, I learned 3 things about her: she was honest, she was committed, and she was fearless. When you are scared of your situation, unsure of your outcome, and/or mentally/emotionally drained, Sarah has your back. Her team is second to none. If her knowledge, integrity, and professionalism do not impress you, her efficiency surely will. I'd recommend her and her team any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Sarah saved me a lifetime of misery!
What can I say.. she helped me when I was scared to death with the possibility of my ex trying to take my 3 week old son. She accomplished the unfathomable! I owe Sarah the most gratitude I could possibly ask for in my very unique and sticky situation. I could not have asked for a better lawyer who listened, was passionate, thorough, and gentle with my fragile state of being a new single mom. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

Excellent lawyer – Honest, competent and responsive
Sarah did an excellent job with my divorce and subsequent complicated legal issues. Her guidance in the situation was invaluable. She understood and respected what was important to me and prioritized those things while balancing them against the requests/needs of the other side. The resulting settlement was to my satisfaction and I would recommend her work to anyone looking for competent, honest representation.

Sarah Hardy-Cooper
I met Sarah Hardy-Cooper after a colleague insisted I have her as my divorce attorney. I knew the day we met, she was going to handle my divorce proceedings. The peace of mind I had surrounded by honest, professional, knowledgeable and capable people handling my case was immeasurable. In my own personal experience of divorce, I felt vulnerable, confused, and overwhelmed. I was relieved that Sarah and her staff were behind me, ready to protect and represent my rights at the most professional level. Sarah is an uncommonly genuine, compassionate, brilliant and patient woman, taking her time to offer quality representation and support to me when I needed it the most. She is motivated by a desire to procure justice for her clients, always with the awareness that the wellness of families and their children are at stake.

Very Helpful
Sarah was incredibly helpful throughout my entire case. She and the folks working with her were helpful, easy to talk to, and could easily adapt to situations changing and thinking outside of the box almost seems to be the norm with everyone I interacted with at her office. Sarah knew both one to make an issue of something and when to take a step back and catch a breath. The thing that stood out the most is how willing she and her staff were willing work with me not just through the legal stuff but understanding how other things like a death in the family and another family member going into chemo influenced everything from my own attitude and financial support. One of her employees gave my son a small guitar that he and his sister still play with.

Horrible experience
I have Sarah hardy Cooper a very hefty retainer as my sons best friend was being physically abused by his parents and I was trying to get custody of this child and Sarah never made it to the court date as she added several thousand dollars 2 weeks before court. I wasted thousands of dollars for nothing, this child ended up running away 23 times from his parents that bear him and he has been in juvenile hall ever since!
