Salem family law attorney Sarah M. Litowich is an Oregonian through and through, with roots in rural eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley. She is grateful for these deep Oregon roots because she learned the value of hard work and building and maintaining strong relationships. Her legal career has taken her to southern Oregon and the Willamette Valley, which she now calls home.
Sarah founded Litowich Law to help Oregonians successfully resolve their most difficult legal issues. Sarah has experience handling a variety of cases, including family law cases, asset division, estate planning and guardianship cases, landlord and tenant cases, and felony and misdemeanor criminal law cases. Sarah focuses on family law and estate planning legal matters but values her broad experience for the insights she wouldn’t otherwise have.
Sarah helps her clients with all types of family law issues, including divorce, child custody, asset division, adoption, and paternity. When her clients are ready to plan for their family’s future or protect vulnerable family members, she has experience with estate planning and protective proceedings like guardianship and protective orders. Sarah’s focus is on helping families.
Sarah takes a long term view of helping her clients. It’s not just about drafting documents and making legal arguments (she’s good at that, too). Sarah understands that real people with real relationships are the heart and soul of what she does. While earning her master’s degree in conflict resolution, she learned that helping someone resolve their conflicts often means helping them understand what motivates the conflict. She takes time to guide her clients toward understanding those motives so that they can craft real-world solutions that will stick. Sarah knows that her clients' long-term relationships remain long after the lawyers are done and gone — her goal is that the work she does improves those relationships when possible.
Above all, Sarah wants to empower her clients to make informed decisions concerning their important legal issues. With her clients’ stories and goals in mind, she will work hard to negotiate the best possible results. If negotiations fail, she and her team will work for those same results in court. Sarah has been selected as a Superlawyers Rising Star in 2020, 2021.
