Sarah sees her role as helping clients navigate the legal landscape as they, and their families, make a difficult and emotional transition. She attempts to negotiate a resolution whenever possible. Sarah is trained in collaborative law and is an active member of the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
