"I reached out with a request for an urgent turnaround, and they not only met but exceeded my expectations. Their level of responsiveness was truly impressive.

What stood out the most, however, was their patience and kindness throughout the entire process. Despite the urgency, they maintained a level of professionalism that went above and beyond. Sarah Mugmon took the time to explain everything thoroughly. She was compassionate every step of the way.

This level of understanding and empathy made a challenging situation much more manageable. She was also committed to ensuring that I fully understood every step of the process. This was invaluable and added to the overall positive experience. Sarah was beyond incredible to work with and I'm truly grateful for Lipp Law Firm.

Highly, highly recommend Sarah and Lipp Law Firm!!"

"Sarah is amazing! She walked me through my case, discussed all the possible actions she could help with, and she was so honest and transparent about the win probability. I reached out to over 5 different law firms in my area, and this is the only firm that not only responded to my case shortly, but also set up a call within 2 days to learn more about the case. I highly recommend everyone to try their service, you won't regret!"

"I have engaged Sarah Mugmon in complex research and analysis-intensive projects with tight deadlines on multiple occasions. Despite plenty of alternative attorneys to choose from, Sarah is always my first choice because I know that if she takes on the project I can put it out of my mind and move on to the next thing with the confidence that she will deliver. The solutions she offers are always more compelling and creative in approach than what I envisioned success would ultimately look like on a given project."
