Sarah practices exclusively family law, representing high net worth individuals in a variety of complex family law matters. Her cases have required the characterization, valuation and division of multifaceted domestic and international assets such as multi-layered business entities, extensive real estate holdings, publicly and privately held investments, stock options and other sophisticated compensation packages, retirement assets, professional practices, family trusts and estate plans, and personal property, as well as spousal support, child support and custody issues, and premarital and post-marital agreements. Having a background in business, Sarah excels at complicated tracing and challenging forensic accounting issues. Sarah represents clients across Southern California, including Santa Barbara County, Ventura, the Santa Ynez Valley and Los Angeles, with commitment, professionalism and demonstrated success.
Sarah is a third-generation Santa Barbara native and is strongly rooted to the community. In a continued effort to give back and fitting with her love of nature and the outdoors, she has recently joined the Board of Trustees for the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, an organization committed to education, research and conservation of native plants and species.
