Professional/Effective/Fair/Honest/Understanding Attorney at Law
Words do no justice in regards to Sandra M. Faber. She is a truly talented attorney that is fair and upfront honest in every way. Because of her skills and ability, she was able to coordinate the building blocks of our family. As emotional as family law situations can be...Sandra is caring and understanding through all of the turmoil and controversy. She stands up for what is right and conveys concepts in a way that me and my family can comprehend. Her feet-on-the=ground personality is a staple in the process of formulating a parenting plan that is truly in the best interest of my child. I HIGHLY recommend hiring her at her fair and to the .1 hour rate(s).

Personable and knowleable
I had only consulted with Sandra, but found her to be very knowledgeable and extremely helpful for a very reasonable flat rate. She spend a lot of time with me answering questions and emails, without getting paid anything for the extra effort.

High conflict custody battle- wise litigator.
Sandy is no-nonsense, yet empathetic and advocates for the best interest of the child. She kept what could have been an highly emotional and high conflict battle, moderate and ultimately, my children’s needs were heard and met.

Can't give enough praise!
Sandy Fabor was truly a blessing. In a time when my life was being ripped apart and my son was potentially in danger, she faut for me and my rights as a father. I was fortunate to have her on my side. She was truly amazing! Only disappointment... It would only let me give her five stars.

Great, knowledgeable family attorney
Sandra represented me in a high-conflict divorce/custody case. At every step she was fair, knew the law, helped me cut my documentation to what was relevant, and was realistic about our chances. She was the first lawyer I met with that took me seriously; she pushed for what we needed and made sure I was being fair. It was a tough case and Sandra's professionalism was exactly what we needed. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
