Sarah M. Litowich
Salem 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 families. Sarah helps her clients plan for their family’s future and protect vulnerable family members through estate planning, probate, and protective proceedings. Sarah has experience handling a variety of cases, including estate planning and guardianship cases, probate cases, family law cases, asset division, landlord and tenant cases, and felony and misdemeanor criminal law cases. Her experience in these other areas of law gives her great insights she wouldn’t otherwise have.
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 people means understanding the root causes of problems. She takes time to guide her clients toward understanding those root causes 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 help her client protect their family and future. Sarah has been selected as a Superlawyers Rising Star in 2020, 2021.
