Would definitely use Sarah Gough again
Sarah was diligent in our case against home builder DRHorton. They were very tough to deal with and she stayed on them til the end and never let up. When DR low balled their offer she countered with more litigation. I felt like she did her best and was very understanding of the people involved not just the money. She also sent settlement info over quickly and overnight certified mail. Most importantly I felt Sara did what she said she was going to do, which can be rare theses days. As a client I would use her again and do trust her. She also has an assistant that provides helpful information if Sarah was in court or something. Thank you Sarah.

A LAWYER YOU CAN COUNT ON
Sarah is extremely talented and professional. She took the time to explain the litigation process to me which made it less confusing and scary for me. She fought hard for me and got me a great result. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer.
