Awesome Attorney and Person!
I got myself into a very bad situation which had the potential to haunt me for the rest of my life. From the moment I met Golnar I felt secure. Not only did Golnar take care of the matter for me, but she did it without judgment. She is honest, caring and beautiful inside and out. I am forever in her debt. She is a gem.

helped me out of collections
Ms Sargeant helped me and my wife out of a collections law suit. She is probably one of the best lawyers I have ever had representing me and my family. She helped us out of a jam and was able to nogotiate for better terms at a more affordable price. I challenge anyone to find fault with her work ethics. Thank you very much Ms. Sargaent We very much appreciate everything you have done for me and my Family. S
