Welcome to my profile! Some of the answers to questions you may have in your search for an attorney may be found here, but I find that the best way to get results is through personal contact. Feel free to call my office to discuss any questions you may have, and I will do my utmost to serve you.


---


As a Family Law attorney, it is my duty and honor to assist my clients with their relationship issues, custody, visitation and support schedules, division of property and the like.  But the intangibles of a family's needs are just as, if not more, important in the long run, and I appreciate my role in those processes as well.

 

I made a choice to practise in this area of the law, despite the stresses that come along with the territory. I invite you to contact me to see if I can assist you through what I know is a most difficult time, and wish you all the best in whatever course you take.

Sandra Munoz Harlow "The Best In The West" or "The Saint" Take Your Pick !
Sandra helped me out of one tough time in my life, she was a good friend and a excellent lawyer. She took on a well funded and experinced adversery (actually "Attorney of the year 2007" SoCal Bar Assoc.) and prevailed. She was always helping me keep my emotions under check with here good common sense outlook on life. I plan on having Sandra as a friend for a long time.

A Lawyer who actually cares about the best interest of her client !!!
I think the title says it all. It seems all attorneys become more about the paycheck than the services they are willing to provide. I can swear on my own life that Mrs. Munoz is not a lawyer because of the money... Sure it keeps her kids in their home, but she has always been about the business of serving her clients. Why, because it is just her character, honesty, etc. She also passed the State bar of CA on her first try... not many attorneys can say that either !!!! I refer to her whenever someone asks me if I know a good Family Law Attorney and assure them it is a nasty business (divorce), but if you must go through the process, Sandra is the helpful hand to see you through.

Client
There could not be a recommend good enough. Sandra has an outstanding sense of the law. If you want someone to fight in honor of truth and what is right, she is the one to do it. She gave back life to my family. She gave my Grandparents the dignity they deserved. Sandra gave back hope when we thought there was none. I cannot describe the gratitude I and my family has for her. Hoping there will never be another reason, she will be forever part of our family and forever be our first choice in a lawyer. She has shown excellent credibility, a genuine concern for the person(s), always available. I know she is a God sent. I never had a lot of trust in lawyers but she has put the trust in my family. Like I said, there are no words good enough. She's the absolute best!!!!!!!!!!

She's awsome
I worked with Sandra in 2004/2005 for my divorce. I received EVERYTHING I deserved. She explained to me in detail my options when the ex's lawyer presented "their" demands. It was not a pleasant divorce, due to my ex, but Sandra made things happen. I have recommended her to all my friends.

Very honorable attorney
In the world of attorney's, Sandra ranks very high on the integrity scale. She care alot about people and her clients, and isn't in it just for the money. You get the feeling that she really loves the law and the legal process itself, and spends alot of time researching for her clients to make sure she's doing her best for them. Sandra helped me out alot when I needed help the most. She's dependable, likeable, and fun to work with.

Shrewd & knowledgeable
While Sandra knows her law well enough, her people skills are lacking. She added antagonism & mistrust to an already volatile situation and caused a solveable situation to deteriorate into an emotional catastrophe for my daughter,

My Experience
Sandra is a trustworthy, nice, ethical, and smart lawyer. She provided legal represention for my divorce for over 14 months. She understands and is knowlegbable about family law. I would recommend her for simple and straightfoward divorvce cases, with minimal complexity or challenge. That said, for complex, detailed, and combative, and adversarial divorce cases, I would not recommend her. I experienced constant delays, lack of feedback ,and lack of clear direction from Sandra during my case. I had several outstanding issues that were never resolved after many dicussions with her. At times she seemed a bit overwhelmed . After switching to new legal counsel, sevral of my unresolved issues managed by Sandra are in the process of being addressed and resolved after only a few days. I now have a very clear game plan. I like Sandra on a personal basis and wish her much sucesss in the future.
