“Sarah represented me in family court with regards to complicated children’s matters involving incidents of abuse. She made sure that my children’s best interest were at the forefront of her mind and her priority was their well-being and prompt resolution of the conflict with the best possible outcome for the children involved. Sarah is very professional, yet approachable. Her communication skills are excellent. Her very calm yet confident presence made me feel like the matters of my very young children were in safe hands and in Court she was absolutely outstanding. She knew exactly what to say and when and how to put across our point so that it was received well by the judge. She is simply outstanding!“
