Knowledgeable, understanding and realistic; These are the qualities I experienced during a recent consultation. Sarah is more than knowledgeable with the law and willing to discuss all options regarding your circumstance. She does this while being extremely understanding and providing a realistic forecast for resolution, including time and financial investment. If you need representation or a consult regarding your legal rights, contact Sarah.
A Great Help
Before consulting an attorney, we spent 3 months trying to resolve a dispute by ourselves. By the time we sought help we were extremely frustrated and losing sleep.
Based on Yelp reviews we called Parks and Ratliff. They took some information over the phone and Sarah Hays agreed to talk to us. When we arrived she had already done some research and had a good idea of what laws might have been broken. She listened to us, carefully looked over our documentation, and double checked the figures. Based on that, she showed us what code she believed had been violated and we discussed our options.
She was able to resolve the dispute in a matter of weeks with a couple of well worded letters. She reminded the other party what code had been violated, cited a supporting case for recovering damages, and suggested the other party might also want to pay our attorney fees. She did this with aplomb and a touch of humor, quickly resolving the dispute.
We found Sarah professional and competent. She kept us informed and we wholeheartedly recommend her as an attorney.
Seeking legal counsel is an option most people don’t want to turn to. For myself, it was a scary and costly option that I was genuinely hesitant about. My fears and doubt were quickly eased when I hired Sarah Hays, however. Not only did Sarah prove knowledgeable and professional throughout our entire dealings; she also showed confidence, civility, credibility and a competitive spirit. I found these charatericstis extremely complimentary to her legal craft.
Thank you, Sarah, for making my legal experience “easy.” You exceeded my expectations and took care of my situation in a timely manor. I will forever recommend your services!
Grateful for legal advice
I am starting a business and I needed support in drafting documents & disclaimers. Sarah confidently helped create these papers in a timely manner. I appreciate having sought out her legal advice. Thank you Sarah.
Sarah helped us enforce an out-of-state custody order. She was very knowledgeable and very helpful! She was prepared to go the extra mile for us and that helped to put us at ease with the situation. We highly recommend Sarah!
Sarah Hays is outstanding in her performance on child custody issues. She was able to assist in getting our child from her state to the child’s residing state before it was too late to act. Process went smoothly and quicker than anticipated.
I would recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney.
I entirely relied on her.
I am a non-resident alien living in New York City, and I got pulled over by a police officer in Oregon while on vacation. I was given a citation for reckless driving and a speeding ticket.
Mrs. Sarah Hays accepted to represent me in this double case. Although I should have returned to Oregon at some point, she worked it out so I could stay in NYC for the whole procedure. She expressly negotiated a diversion with the State of Oregon regarding the reckless driving misdemeanor and, eventually, she argued successfully that paying a speeding ticket would have been punishing me twice. I ended up serving only 8 hours of community service and taking an online driving course.
Due to my foreigner status, she gathered, as a courtesy, information on the immigration consequences I could have faced if I had been convicted. Mrs. Hays was always reachable for any questions, and she proved herself to be very knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. I am extremely thankful for her representing me and having given me this peace of mind throughout these months.
I am from Michigan and I was visiting friends in Oregon, on vacation. Ms. Hays represented me when I received a Speeding ticket and the case was eventually dismissed. I never had to come back to Oregon for anything. Would recommend highly without any reservation!
Excellent advice and professionalism
I consulted with Sarah Hays to potentially defend me for a traffic violation. She and I spoke for less than 30 minutes about the options that I had available. Her explanation and advice was exceptionally clear and helpful. I decided to defend myself which was an excellent decision. I have a lot of respect for a lawyer such as Sarah who shares professional knowledge for the benefit of the client without the pressure of expecting that hiring the layer must be the outcome. She acted professionally and in my best interests.
Sarah helped us during a very difficult and complicated situation involving our adopted children. She is intelligent, ethical and full of integrity.
Sarah represented me in a case against dhs. She is competent, knowledgeable, and compassionate. The case was dismissed against me beecause of the excellent work/defense. She is highly recommended.
Excellent, ethical & determined
I recently retained Sarah Litowich for a difficult custody issue. I was nervous, as I’ve never had to retain a lawyer for anything before. Sarah explained everything to me in a way that I could understand, and worked very hard on my behalf. She is thorough, always had my best interests in mind. She went above and beyond for me, and I would absolutely recommend Sarah Litowich to anyone who needs legal assistance.
Mrs. Litowich is a no-nonsense attorney. She was straightforward with me about every aspect of my case, good or bad. Her attitude in the court room is ferocious, and she never let opposing attorneys get away with snide comments on record (little feel-good victories). If Mrs. Litowich were still in the area, I would hire her again if the need arose. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a divorce or child custody/support attorney.
