Sarah chose to open her practice to challenge the status quo. She wanted a firm that could be focused in a specific practice area, so she could give her clients the best service possible. She wanted to create an environment where people felt comfortable and at home. A place where questions were always encouraged, and education was priority. Sarah’s Law Firm focuses entirely on estate planning and elder law. Her team is dedicated to providing her clients with the best planning possible while cultivating a lifelong relationship with them and their family.

What makes Sarah’s Law Firm different is that it is built with the needs of you and your family in mind. You want to know you have made the best decisions for your family and that your plan will work. You want to make sure that your family is taken care of in the best way possible and will be prepared to receive your wealth if anything happens to you. You want to understand your plan and its documents, or at least be able to call and ask a question without fear of a large bill two weeks later.

We currently have locations in Shepherd and Alma; with locations in Clare and Shields coming soon. If necessary, we travel to meet with you, and use state of the art encrypted technology to communicate with you or your families, wherever they are. Our offices serve as our home base. However, we serve clients all over the state of Michigan. If you are a frequent traveler, we have the technology available to make sure we can be there for you whenever you need it, wherever you are.
