Combining my passion for the law with compassion for clients I am able to assist families through the turmoil of difficult family law situations.

 

I am an associate attorney at Hanshaw Kennedy Hafen, PLLC in Frisco, Texas.

 

Throughout law school I gained family law experience at the Legal Aid Society of Lubbock, Inc. and the Office of the Attorney General - Child Support Division. This experience has provided me with the knowledge and ability to help clients navigate the child support system in Texas.

 

I work primarily in the following areas:

 

Divorce

Child Custody

Child Support

Paternity

Adoption

Post Divorce Modifications

Enforcement Actions

Wills

Powers of Attorney

Advance Directive to Physicians

Probate

Practice Areas

  • Divorce
  • Child Support/Attorney General
  • Post Divorce Modification
  • Enforcement Actions
  • Adoption
  • Child Custody
  • Paternity

Experience

Combining my passion for the law with compassion for clients, I will help guide you through the legal system toward the best possible solutions to your family law concerns. 

I did not step foot in a courtroom until law school. That experience helps me understand clients who are unfamiliar with the law and gives me the ability to explain legal procedure and terminology in a way that is more accessible and relatable. In law school, I worked for Legal Aid Society of Lubbock, Inc. and the Office of the Attorney General, Child Support Division. In both positions, I dealt with a wide array of family law issues, and those experiences have given me the unique understanding of Attorney General’s Child Support Office to get results for my clients. 

My husband and I live in Princeton, Texas with two wonderful dogs, and we are expecting our first baby in May 2012.

| Hired Attorney
Amazing attorney!!
Sarah helped me with a difficult case that required a lot of fact gathering and having to distinguish between actual facts and allegations. Sarah was patient, thorough, and truly listened to my case and the information I provided. Sarah went to great lengths to assist me in gathering information needed and finding resources to help my case. We ended up settling out of court, but Sarah continued to go to bat for me and my case helping me get an outcome that was positive and feasible. I highly recommend Sarah, as she treats her clients with respect and dignity. She is a true advocate for her clients and goes above and beyond to help them receive the best outcome possible.
