Highly Recommend This Lawyer
From the moment I first called her until my case was resolved, Sarah put me at ease and I knew I was in good hands. She is knowledgable and patiently answered all of my questions. She kept me informed through every step of the process and responded to my communications in a timely manner. She is very professional and was able to negotiate a favorable outcome for me. I found her very professional and worth every penny of her retainer fee. I highly recommend her and am glad I hired her.

Response from Sarah Kimball November 18, 2018
I am so happy to read this review. While my main goal is to obtain a favorable outcome that will have the least impact on my clients' lives, I also aim to put my clients at ease by anticipating and answering all of their questions. I do this by putting myself in their shoes, communicating regularly and leaving out the unnecessary and impersonal legalese. Thank you for the wonderful review!

Great defense lawyer
I hired Sarah to negotiate a continuance for dismissal on a 88 in 65 speeding ticket. Not the easiest thing to sell to a prosecutor. Sarah managed to accomplish this and I didn't have to take off work to make an appearance. I highly recommend hiring her.

Wonderful Person and Better Businesswoman
The thing that matters the most in prosecution on the other side of the table is having confidence. And that’s what you get with Sarah Kimball. I was recently charged with a citation for a Failure to Move violation for a trip I took out to the southern side of the cities, and was totally flabbergasted by my belief of what to do. I immediately thought to pay the citation, then I remembered there are people out there who know better about how to handle matters and help you remember you are human like all other people. I naturally thought to contact a lawyer after accidentally sending myself to the prosecutor by going to the wrong courthouse to settle the issue initially. The first one I contacted, passed the name of another who was personal in the field of traffic violations; that would be Sarah. Nearly a month after making acquaintances, me and Sarah were able to come to a positive outcome for the case, and I could not have been happier than to have had the results she was able to achieve for us. I fairly believe on your own in matters of court, you are lesser than likely to lose the benefits of an attorney; let alone a great, and talented one. Sarah is the definition of that. She was able to communicate with me decently, fairly, with a reason of consideration and professionalism that I would like to say is the standard for having quality representation. There is no more to say than to look for her when you’re looking for the voice that knows better and shows better when the decision is on the table.

Thank You Sarah!
just now I have the highest opinion and praise for Sarah Kimball. My case was handled professionally, and executed with finesse. Although my case wasn't for Murder, if she didn't do as promised it would have been professional homicide. But she represented me in a clear, precise, manor. Sarah did not burden my account, her fees were very reasonable and extremely well spent. Sarah Kimball is on my list of highly recommended attorneys in the Minneapolis/St Paul area. Thank you Sarah!

Highly recommend Ms Sarah Kimball law office
Ms Sarah did an amazing job I didn't have to show up for court she took care of everything over the phone and got 2 counts of traffic tickets, (WHICH IN MN IS CONSIDER MISDEMEANOR) for those who didn't know because I didn't, to a 187 fine and petty misdemeanor and nothing on my DL record. I highly recommend calling her in a situation like this. Sarah kimball law office.

Top-notch attorney
Sarah Kimball is a top-notch attorney, absolutely top-notch. I have worked with and around attorneys much of my professional career and she is one of the brightest and most compassionate lawyers I have ever met. My situation was a misdemeanor traffic offense which was my fault. Sarah successfully negotiated with the prosecutor to bring the charge down to one that drops off my record if I maintain a clean driving record for a year. I could not have attained even close to that level of success if I hadn’t had her skilled guidance. Her work as a former prosecutor makes her uniquely qualified to understand the workings of the system. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Sarah!

Great lawyer
I was a prosecutor in Anoka County for nine years when Sarah was doing municipal prosecution there. She is highly competent. I would definitely recommend her as a defense attorney.

DUI
Recently I was looking at my second DUI and was worried about going to jail because of my past record of alcohol charges. It has affected me physically and emotionally. Ms. Kimball showed her extensive experience with DUI law by effectively communicating the facts of my case and the law in Minnesota. Without the help of Ms. Kimball in resolving this matter, it would have been very difficult for me to have done this on my own. If you need an experienced lawyer, I highly recommend Ms. Kimball. “Don’t try fighting by yourself. Ms. Kimball helped me a lot. I don’t have the words to thank her.”
