Sara has been my attorney for 2.5 years. I initially hired her for my modification, and have retained her for odds and ends related to that. Sara is astute with laws and whom they apply to, and is able to concisely articulate them. I love that she is concise with her advice. I trust her 100% and feel supported by her 100%.

I have to agree with one of the other reviews, but I would say that it was distracted to just not caring. I too experienced an excessive waste of money getting no where. Discovery was lacking and the discover that was done she did nothing with. Important documents were not filed. No one should pay the type of money attorneys want and then have to try to teach themselves law because they aren't getting what they deserved. The end result is having to go back to court a second time with a new firm and a terrible waste of money.

I cannot recommend Sara highly enough. She is straightforward and knowledgeable. She tackled the complicated financial issues of my divorce with ease and was compassionate throughout.
