"Our firm has worked with Sarah Mugmon to make sure that we are in compliance with DC employment laws. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She took the time to understand our company needs, and offered thoughtful recommendations that produced an excellent work product. I would highly recommend Sarah."

"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."
