Sarah was a miracle find. She was a referral by another attorney who was a friend of a friend of mine. Prior to meeting with Sarah, I had called a few employment attorney’s who wanted to take my case. It was odd to have attorneys talk over the phone for 10 minutes and without seeing any evidence or meeting you in person, say, “I’ll send you a retainer.” I met with Sarah in person, discussed the issues I had at my previous employment, and after some deliberation Sarah informed me that she would take my case on contingency. The fact that she wanted to know all the details, took the time to investigate, and most importantly listened made me feel I had met the right “match.” It took us almost 4 years of litigation and a two week trial to win the case. There was never any false hopes or false promises made. Sarah would talk about winning and the potential for losing at trial if I decided to go to trial instead of accept any pre-trial settlements. It was my relationship with the Schlehr Firm which inspired me to pursue my own legal career. I saw an educated, powerful, woman who didn’t let anything slip by her. Sarah has years of experience, a sharp eye, and an iron will to fight your case. Needless to say it is very inspiring to work with Sarah and her associates. You will feel taken care off, important, and most of all like you achieved justice for your cause. I was extremely happy with my experience and referred a friend to Sarah so that she may have the same expert on her case. It is vital to have a diligent and honest attorney to inform you whether your case is one worth litigating or not. Litigation is not an easy process as a plaintiff, it may be emotionally taxing to some, stressful, and cause lots of self-doubt. But, when you have someone on your side who understands that, knows how to ease your concerns through actions on the case, and is human enough to check in– then there is not much to worry about in the long run. The journey with Sarah, in retrospect, was life changing.
