Q. How do you know this lawyer?
  • Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague

Sarah and I have worked on a number of projects together over the years. She is an amazing divorce and family law attorney who truly cares about her clients and getting the results they deserve.

Q. In the cases you were involved in with this attorney, which of the following apply?
  • Same Client

The cases that Sarah and I have worked on together are often difficult and complex. One recent case involved a long-term marriage with significant assets that involved an unusual issue where our client was an engineering professional who was partially vesting into a partnership right before the dissolution proceedings commenced. We ended up taking the case to trial because the opposing party and her lawyer were completely divorced from reality. At trial, we literally destroyed them.

Q. When did you work with this lawyer?
I have worked with Sarah on various cases over the last three to five years.
Q. Was this lawyer an effective advocate/counselor and why?

Sarah is not only an effective advocate, she is a truly outstanding one. Here's why. She possesses a rare combination of a strong legal mind, exceptional writing skills, and strong oral advocacy. She is a superior litigator in every respect of the word. If I were getting a divorce, I would want her by my side!
