A large portion of Sarah's work is focused on family issues, such as divorce, paternity, child custody, visitation, removal, child support, maintenance, adoption, and appeals. I provide my clients with the advice, advocacy, and compassion they need to navigate the legal system with confidence. Sarah is frequently appointed as Guardian ad Litem in both family law, adoption, and guardianship cases, which allows her to have a unique perspective when handling these matters for her clients. Sarah also assists a number of homeowners associations in collecting unpaid assessments and enforcing association rules and regulations. Estate planning and probate issues touch the lives of individuals of all ages. Sarah provides the information and prepares the legal documents needed to ensure that her clients and their families are prepared for the future.
