Back in mid June 2016 I made a simple and dumb choice to bring a substantial amount of fireworks from pahrump Nevada into California for Independence Day for the family to celebrate. As i was crossing state line into California around the Baker area I noticed a cal fire truck unit behind me for about 15 minutes. He initiated a stop by turning on his lights. Officer stated to me that the stop was made due to speeding, which was incorrect since I had my cruise control on @ the speed limit of 55. He said I was going 65. Officer explained to me that he was going to search my vehicle because he felt that I had illegal fireworks in my vehicle. Even though I don't have a criminal record, I asked him under what legal law are you allowed to search my vehicle. He said he could see fireworks inside my vehicle which was false since they were covered with a blanket. I didn't want any trouble of any kind so I cooperated with the officer since I did see more units arrive within minutes. My brother and i stepped out of my vehicle and officers searched my vehicle and removed all my fireworks from the vehicle. They even had a scale to weigh them. It's obvious they knew what they were doing to begin with. Once their investigation was complete the officer cited me for illegal fireworks which was a misdemeanor. Since i live in Ventura county about two and a half hours away from Victorville I didn't want to deal with going to court and making the drive to the court house. I searched for lawyers within the area and came across Sarah Powell. After reading her reviews and comparing to other lawyers I was leaning more towards her. I called her and she answered immediately. After asking her a few questions and explaining to her what had happened to me. She made me feel at ease. I felt very comfortable with her. She explained to me the different scenarios that can happen in court and that her goal is to get the case dismissed if possible. I decided to hire her. She explained to me that I don't have to worry about showing up to court that she would present herself on my behalf. That made me feel good and stress free since i didn't want to make the drive from so far away and miss work. After the first court appearance which was around mid September 2016 she called me and told me that there would be another court appearance in mid October 2016. Sarah told me that she would have the police report by then and that she would know more about the case and would email me a copy of it. After the second court appearance she called me and told me she has the police report and that she would email it to me. She then told me that my case was DISMISSED. I didn't know if i had heard her correctly so I asked her again. She said yes, i filed for a dismisssal and the DA dismissed your case. I was very relieved to hear that. Sarah Powell is the truth. Very responsible lawyer, great communicator. Never seems to be in a rush when talking to her. I will definitely keep her in my contacts. I highly recommend her, hands down. Thank you so much Sarah. Your the best.

Attorney SARAH POWELL was brilliant in the handling of the reduction of my felony charge to a misdemeanor and subsequent expungement.
In addition she was successful in convincing the courts to drop the registration requirement over the DA's opposition.
SARAH POWELL was very professional and thorough in her handling of my case. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone needing legal counsel. I feel she is a credit
to her profession.

We were going through some difficult time after a loss prevention officer at a departmental store wrongfully filed charges of shoplifting for items that were paid for. Having no clue what a pretrial hearing is and unsure of how to approach it, I made a call to Sarah for advice. Sarah made us comfortable from day one and gave us a confidence that we will be able to get the right resolution for the case. The case was ultimately dismissed and she skillfully guided us through multiple hearings. She was a pleasure to be on our side. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for right legal assistance.

From the beginning Sarah promised to fight for my rights, and did just that. She knew my rights and defended me, forcing the other side into a quick and fair settlement.

Extremely knowledgable and professional!
Based on facts of my criminal case, Sarah was able to completely change my charge from Felony to Misdemeanor. She worked with DA for 4 months to mitigate charges.
What has impressed me the most from Sarah is her ability to work through case without judging me - she continuously reminded me I was doing the right thing, at times I wanted to give up and she always called me and texted me reminding of the reasons in life to maintain my calm and work through it with her. It was 4 months of her constant support - and for that I am grateful.
Sarah worked hard to bond with me and build my trust, therefore, I trust and believe there was no other result than what she negotiated for me.
The end result was above what I expected! I highly recommend Sarah Powell for any and all legal representation.
-Thank you, Sarah!

Sarah was professional, attentive, compassionate and produced results. She never led my husband to believe what she could not provide. I never thought she could get his DUI for marijuana reduced to a wet and reckless especially considering his background! Most importantly, I would like to say that she was human. She wholeheartedly respected my husband's changes and never once made him feel that this mistake diminished all the changes he had made prior to this case. She was non-judgmental and genuinely believes that people change and deserve second, third, fourth chances in their life! She is a gem. It is obvious she is passionate about her role and it is not just a job for her. Thank you Sarah, you have no idea how much you did for my family!

I Cant even start explaining the calming feeling that came over me after speaking with Sarah... I had called her scared and nervous for not knowing the consequences of my citation. She emediately comforted me and let me know everything was going to be ok and explained how the law really works... She took my citation and emediately started bringing my cheous to total calmness,filling me with trust in her whole heartedly... her patience and the professionalism she had handling my case were outstanding..
I called her when I was a nervous wreck and with many,many questions which she answered them all... For me she is amazing and I would hire her blindly on the spot anytime and I will recommend her and anyone to her,at anytime and for any case..
Thank You So Much Sarah PowelI.
I am TRULLY grateful!!!
