Testimonials

  • Sarah successfully negotiated for an increase in my child support and associated expenses, and carefully steered me through some contentious litigation that followed the discovery of a delicate custody issue. Her knowledge of the legal "lay of the land" in the local area contributed significantly. We still have some remaining work to do together, but I remain beyond grateful to have found someone I trust to protect my interests and not back down.
