Professional, Responsive, and Trustworthy
I hired Wolk & Levine to help my family through a scary situation. I was impressed with their candor, support, and empathetic demeanor. The team at Wolk & Levine are results driven, communicate clearly and are responsive to their client’s needs. I have worked with several attorneys in my time, but hiring Wolk & Levine was a breath of fresh air. I am eternally grateful for their services. I have returned to them again and again without hesitation or reservation. Highly recommended for contractual reviews and estate planning.

Highly Recommend!
It is my great pleasure to recommend attorney Sarah Wolk and her partner Zack. They have been a fantastic team, updating my will, reading and explaining new HOA rules for my home, re-writing a real estate contract and running a patent search. I couldn't ask for better representation. They are committed, talented and very professional offering absolutely outstanding service!

Exactly what one expects in an attorney.
I consulted with and retained Ms. Wolk for business contract purposes. Her thoroughness in application and sharp attention to detail definitely allowed me to properly protect my interests in the arrangement we constructed. I highly recommend Ms. Wolk for anyone who needs an attorney who prides themselves on performance.

Highly Recommended
I utilized the services of Ms. Wolk for a complex contract negotiation that I was involved with very recently. I was very impressed with her knowledge and very thankful for the consultative professionalism that she delivered. She was able to identify a number of potentially problematic issues that I was facing, offered a myriad of helpful advice, and did so in a very expedient manner. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for solid advice or highly proficient representation. I was very impressed with her professionalism and plan on using her services in the future.

Zinc Toxicity
Patricia Griese Chandler, AZ October 6, 2009 RE: Attorney Sarah Rose Wolk To Whom It May Concern: I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Attorney Sarah Wolk for her genuine compassion and interest in my unique situation regarding the toxic zinc poisoning of my pet Shih Tzu from an ingested metal dog tag. I connected with Sarah through AVVO in a Google search, looking for an advocate for animal protection. In my desperate search for direction, Sarah personally responded to me quickly, via email with specific attention to my case. Due to the nature of this poisoning in an animal and not a human, attorneys whom I contacted before Sarah would not even hear my case. My deep gratitude to Attorney Sarah Wolk of Wolk, Levine & Farboody - Glendale, CA 91202. Sincerely, Patricia Griese
