The peaceful resolution has proven to yield the best long-term results and the least amount of stress for all parties involved. Sara believes you need to embrace and understand the family dynamic in order to excel within family law and to assist parties in reaching amicable and equitable resolutions.

Sara has been appointed to The Florida Bar’s Seventeenth Circuit Grievance Committee “C.” Her term of service is from April 1, 2022 through March 31, 2025. Grievance committees are made up of volunteer members, at least one-third of whom are not lawyers. Each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. The grievance committee reviews complaints and decides, after a case is submitted to them by bar counsel, whether there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida and whether discipline against the lawyer appears to be warranted.
