Sarah Broder approaches the practice of law with enthusiasm and great care. She has a strong ability to hear her clients’ goals and concerns in order to help them to effectuate their plan and related documents even if those clients are not able to fully articulate these needs initially. Sarah focuses her practice on all aspects of estate planning, from helping clients prepare necessary documents for wealth, asset and beneficiary protection, and succession planning, as well as charitable gift planning techniques. She believes that everyone can benefit from estate and disability planning, especially if minor or disabled children are involved in light of her background with family law.
When Sarah is working with clients, her goal is to put them at ease and reassure them that proper planning will help them avoid any horror stories they may have heard. She makes sure to walk her clients through a variety of potential outcomes so that they can address each one strategically and in a manner that meets their needs. Client-centered and dedicated to providing thorough and responsive legal services through all phases of representation, Sarah loves and appreciates working with clients on a range of matters from complex cases to ones that require more basic advice, as well as handling the administration of their or a loved one’s estate or trust.
Prior to joining Stein Sperling, Sarah began her legal career with the practice of family law before discovering and pursuing her passion for estates and trusts, building an estate planning practice out of a family law-based firm.
