How We Work Together

Our relationship starts with your telephone call to me.  Most people who call me have been referred to me by another client of mine, their therapist, or another attorney, so they know of my character and reputation from a trusted source.

I will interview you briefly, for about ten minutes, and without charge.  We will set an in-person appointment and I may ask you to bring certain documents.

When we meet, I will learn about you and your situation to determine how I can best serve you. We will formalize our relationship by signing a fee agreement, then figure out our next steps together in a “to do” list. 

Our early tasks often include gathering information and documents or completing some legal pleading.  Or I may contact the other person or the other attorney to discuss how the case will proceed. 

As I get to know a client better, I often suggest ways that we could work together more efficiently and effectively.

Appointments are available at my downtown Sebastopol office.


"When faced with divorce, I contacted Sarah and decided that she would represent me. Throughout the process, all of my contacts with Sarah were positive and she was always available to answer any and all of my questions. She was constantly supportive through a very difficult period of my life and made an unbearable situation bearable."
