“Sarah is fantastic. She got my case dismissed when seemingly no one else could… It’s as simple as that. If you’re looking for the best result in your case – hire Sarah and don’t think twice about it. It’s one of the best investments you can make in your own life.”

– JOHN D.

“The cards were stacked against us and Sarah was still able to get me an acquittal. She is organized, efficient, great with communication, smart, tactical – really an all-around rock star. She also loves dogs and kids – good human as well as one of the best attorneys if not the best attorney I have ever met.”

– Chris C.

“She was extremely responsive and had excellent communication throughout the process, never leaving us in the dark or wondering what to expect next or how to proceed. She made things simple, laid out reasonable expectations and over delivered, which is rare these days!”

– Matt

“She is brilliant, easy to contact, and cares deeply for her clients. Sarah helped me handle a very scary time in my life with dignity and respect.”

– Katie C.

“Sarah is MAGNIFICENT in the courtroom and uses her knowledge of the law with both wisdom and prowess. She backs all her words with ACTIONS and quite frankly has not only renewed my faith in the legal system, but humanity as a whole. To anyone who takes the outcome of their case seriously, Sarah is an absolute must!”

– Sarah B.

“It’s something special to watch a good lawyer work. I was extremely impressed with Sarah’s confidence and professionalism. She dissected the DA’s case point-by-point, found the holes, and then executed in court. It was a thing of beauty.”

– Andrew L.

“Watching Sarah represent me in court with such ease and confidence while she attacked was pretty incredible. She is brilliant and invested in who she represents. And I am incredibly grateful she took my case. Thank you for the win, Sarah.”

– Kate F.

“Putting my faith, funds, and my life into Sarah’s hands was without a doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made. With all of the charges against me dropped, I am now once again a free man. If you are fortunate enough to have Sarah in your corner, you are on the right track to your own success.”

– Andy R.

“Sarah took our case and immediately went to work dissecting it. She used an investigator and an accident reconstructionist to get to the facts in an unbiased way. She was able to prove everything I had been trying to tell the authorities and what the facts supported. She was extremely professional and thorough. In the end I was found not guilty. I don’t think I would have had that outcome without her. It was a very challenging case to navigate and she was able to navigate it. If anyone finds themselves lost and overwhelmed in the legal system I would highly recommend Sarah. She was simply amazing. I can’t thank her enough for what she did for my family. It was a great expense to endure, but worth every penny. Sarah Schielke is an amazing lawyer that will fight for you. I will always be indebted to her.”

– Adrian B.

“Sarah is awesome. Not a typical do-the-minimum turnkey attorney. She shows genuine care for her clients and helped me get out of a sticky situation with a DUI. Other attorneys seemed to be more on the cookie-cutter-get-a-plea-deal-with-lesser-outcome-for-you approach to it, which I’m sure is a huge money maker for them. Sarah was ready to take the gloves off and go to trial if need be and I would not want to be the person that had to go up against her. She was always available for questions and gave me honest answers to help me decide what was in my own best interest in this process.”

– John

“Sarah is professional yet personal. She really cares about your needs and resolving your case. It was easy to stay in touch with her. She understands ‘the system’ and knows how to win.”

– Maria

“She’s professional with a bit of a street-fighter attitude.”

– Graham

“Sarah is one of the smartest people I have ever met. After the first consultation, I knew that she was determined to get me the best outcome possible, and she followed through on just that. She is extremely smart and strategic, I was consistently surprised with how thoughtful she was in every move she made throughout the life of my case.”

– Kevin R.

“Sarah is smart, witty, can think on her feet, and has the ability to evaluate legal matters and turn them in your favor. My family and I realize that Sarah was a lifesaver for me. Her sincerity, love for her profession, kindness, and fight hold no bounds. No words can ever express the caliber of representation you get when Sarah is in your corner.”

– Al F.
