This may sound obvious. Of course your lawyer needs to know your side of the story to defend or litigate your case, right? However, this is where other lawyers sometimes fall short in the relationship. Sarah wants to hear from you. She wants to know how you’re feeling. She may even ask you for TOO MANY DETAILS. We will spend time REALLY talking to one another. This is how we become the most prepared people in the courtroom. This essential first step can’t be overlooked, rushed, or underestimated.
The courtroom is a pressure-filled arena. Many unpredictable events can occur on your court date. Your lawyer needs to have not only a Plan A and a Plan B, but a Plan C through Z too.
This level of preparation doesn’t happen by accident, or overnight. It takes hard work and skill. After meeting with you, Sarah will review your discovery, investigate your leads, talk to your witnesses, and make a plan (and a plan, and a plan).
Being arrested. Divorce. Losing your kids. Going to jail.
These are some of the most difficult events that can occur in your life. And it is at these moments that Sarah wants to help.
