Sage the Goat!
When I tell you Yesss Sage the Goat!! She is extremely the goat! She’s well talented all the way around from family lawyer to criminal lawyer winning trial cases! She knows exactly what she’s doing and most of all she gives her all to make sure her clients get what they deserve, and what they are requesting! As for me she will always be my lawyer and hands down on speed dial! Sage your work never went unnoticed thank you so much for really taking the time and really put your best foot forward, and down because you made it happen for me! Thank you love you!

An attorney worth paying for
I was recently backed into a corner and nowhere to turn, completely helpless, suffering a 5+ year nightmare experience in Santa Clara Family Court system. Having gone through more money than I care to remember, 3 attorneys, endless unjust and unfair sanctions and judgements. By chance I met a person who heard my story and that person said you need my friend Sage I will tell her your story and when you call her she will listen and defend you guaranteed. In fact, calling Sage was the best call I could have ever made Sage listened and instilled hope in a horrible ongoing struggle. For the first time on 5+ years my stress level is way down because of Sage who has proven to have excellent analytical and research skills, the will and ability to perform deep research related to my case, her attention to detail, persuasive communication and written communications are matched by her genuine interpersonal skills. To date Sage was the first attorney that the judge would listen to she has created the most effective plans of action and results out preforming 5+ years of work and 3 other attorneys’ in an extremely short period of time. Sage is the most professional representation of an attorney earning and deserving the highest recommendation. Please feel free to reach out to me and I will personally, vouch for Sage. An attorney with a heart WHO KNEW?

Simply the Best!
Ms. BlackOwl represented me in a enforcement of judgment action. She was very knowledgeable in all aspects of family law and was assertive and efficient in resolving the issues at a time that was so difficult. Her handling of my case ended up by saving me tons of fees. I highly recommend her firm!

Fabulous Family Law Attorney
I hired Sage to help me in an emergency custody situation. She was absolutely wonderful and helped me and my son through a very stressful situation. Sage knew all the correct things to do and kept me calm while she handled everything. I would highly recommend this attorney, I can not say enough good things about her!

A complicated divorce resolved by Sage
When I hired Sage I had already experienced 2 years of being poorly represented by another legal counsel. When Sage took my case she listened to me as I recounted all the details about the marriage and what had been done thus far with the dissolution of marriage. She was very patient and asked many questions to make sure she understood my needs and my concerns. She's a skilled negotiator and she worked very diligently to resolve my case so that I can be secure in this next phase of my life. I absolutely recommend her for even the most high stakes and complex dissolutions of marriage.

Amazing Family Law Attorney
Ms. BlackOwl has walked me through every stage of my divorce, from filing my divorce to disclosing, to settlement. I'm just a month away from a dissolution now. What was once a terrifying situation has now become manageable. I feel certain and calm about the next steps and I cannot thank her and her office staff for navigating me through such a difficult time. I would recommend her highly. If the process of divorce scares you, this is the attorney for you.

Words are not enough, but here goes...
While going through what I'm certain was and will always be the worst time of my life for myself and my youngest daughter, Sage was my pillar of strength. When I could not keep my emotions in check, Sage was everything that I needed to be but simply couldn't be due to my emotions at the time. Sage was completely non-judgemental, fair and always logical. I was able to comfortably be myself, as well as misdirect some emotions her way, without her taking it personally. All the while she maintained professional, thorough, and using her vast experience with the law, did what was best for myself and my family. Athough she was my attorney, I will keep her eternally close to my heart, because without her all would be lost. I highly recommend this incredibly intelligent, compassionate, diplomatic, professional to anyone who is suffering through any type of legal unfairness. She will do everything in her power make sure that she is following all leads, leaving no stone unturned, to help you the way that she helped me. I can't say enough about this individual. I trust her completely with my life, my child, and my affairs. I don't know where I would be without her. I am forever grateful.

Our Lifesaver
I was living a nightmare for the last several years but I reached out to Sage and she took such good care of me and my young son. She was there at every turn, she was aggressive, knowledgeable, and professional. I honestly believe that she created a legal strategy that saved my son’s life. There is no doubt that my son’s father would’ve done severe harm to him. Now he can have a normal childhood free from abuse and trauma. I will never be able to repay her for all that she’s done for us. I am forever indebted to her. Sage is an incredible attorney.

Nice lady
I requested a consultation on here (Avvo) she contacted me about 2 days later I believe and talked to me for almost an hour. She was a great help and defiantly helped put my mind at ease at least a little. If I need a lawyer she will be the one I choose

Just a small business owner who needed a voice in Placer County.
I am a small business owner who was caught up in a very horrible situation that, despite not driving, was charged with a DUI. Not saying I didn’t put my self in the situation and had some blame to share, but the over zealous prosecutors with Placer County were not offering a fair and just punishment. I hired Sage from the very start knowing with all I have to loose I could not go it alone. Sage tenaciously fought them every step of the way, forcing the prosecution team to take my livelihood and situation into consideration. We were able to, after quite some lengthy negotiations, come to an acceptable and realistic settlement. This allowed me to not only keep my business and house, but to pay my debt to society without sacrificing my self in the process. I can not say enough about the reassurance I felt knowing I was receiving the best representation possible against such a inconsiderate hard nosed prosecution. I have recommended Sage to several of my associates and will continue to do so.

She was excellent couldn't of been better
She was great. Showed up for me at court on very short notice when someone was trying to take custody off my 8 year old son just 2 weeks after his mom passed. She was very well prepared took care of everything and made me feel at ease with everything that was going on.

Criminal Defense
Attorney Sage Kaveny represented me recently when I was falsely accused of felony domestic abuse. She was superior and the case was resolved in my favor. I unreservedly recommend this fine attorney to anyone needing representation in her areas of legal expertise..

Trial
Ms. Kaveny is an extremely dedicated attorney and thorough when it comes to researching all of the avenues to resolving any case. I would strongly recommend this attorney to anyone. With this attorney I was able to win a very long and exhausting case in trial.
