Sarah is a wonderful attorney and I would not trust the future of my family with any other attorney or firm. I highly recommend going to this firm for any legal matters, they will always go the extra mile for you and your family.

Elizabeth Stephenson has been my go-to attorney since 2008. I never felt like I was just an anonymous case to be nickel and dimed to death and I find that to be rare in attorneys. As her client, I always felt that my case was a top priority to her, even when it was a small matter. Regardless of the matter at hand, I had real peace of mind knowing that Elizabeth was my advocate.

New Direction Family Law (and Sarah Hink specifically) prepared a prenuptial agreement for my fiance and me. The entire process was clear, smooth and easy and our final document reflected exactly what I had hoped it would. Everyone in the office is prompt and friendly. (And, when I needed a bit of a pep talk during the process, Sarah was there to give it!)

Divorce is never an easy thing to go through. No one goes in to a marriage preparing for a divorce. So, needless to say, it’s a confusing time.
Elizabeth was nothing short of the perfect blend of professionalism, effectiveness, and compassion. She was an ear when I needed one. She was very professional in all her communications and processes. And, Elizabeth was extremely effective in insuring the outcome of my case was one that helped me move on to the next chapter of my life with the least amount of unrest.

The first meeting I had with Sarah she put my mind at ease as she demonstrated her compassion, understanding and willingness to gain a positive outcome for me. I can’t list enough accolades for Sarah, but she TRULY has been a guiding light in a very dark period for me. Thank you-Thank you-Thank you.

-Client


From our first consultation, the eventual close of my case, Elizabeth was there with constant updates, advice, and solutions.
A top notch attorney who settled an unsettling time in my life.
I highly recommend having Elizabeth Stephenson in your corner should you find yourself in a position where divorce is the only answer.

If you are looking for a family lawyer that is caring & compassionate to what you are going through, look no further. Sarah is the one for you!! In my opinion she has gone above and beyond to get the job done! I wouldn’t want anyone else to represent us!

Elizabeth was initially a friendly referral who immediately took the reins of this part of my life, and got it under control. Though I was studied in certain aspects of divorce as it relates to estate planning, I had no idea what was in store for me as I made the decision to end my marriage of 10 years. Elizabeth put it all in perspective for me and made it manageable, in a time when life seemed to be falling completely apart. And though I felt comforted and protected, she did not allow me to become complacent in my dealings with the “other side.” Rather, she guided me and educated me and readied me for the struggles that were to unfold. Even today, one year post-divorce, Elizabeth continues to support me and help me through certain issues.

I would certainly recommend Elizabeth Stephenson to others! She was excellent in helping me keep my issues rooted in facts, but was also able to acknowledge the challenging emotions I was facing through her personable manner.
She impressed me with her professional skills, with a very crisp focus on the relevant points of law. She and her staff demonstrated that they cared about my success as their client.

Sarah is amazing!!! I am so thankful I was able to find her during what I would consider a very difficult and uncertain time in my life.

Elizabeth has served as my family law attorney for over 5 years. After my divorce became acrimonious she stepped into a very complicated situation and immediately brought clarity and a rational perspective into the case. She has worked tirelessly on my case over the years from filing and defending emergency petitions, to normal procedural hearings, to full day trials. In all of these situations Elizabeth was fully prepared and passionate in her representation of me and my children. She is very pleasant to work with and is cognizant of her billing hours and is direct and succinct in her communications.

-Client


Elizabeth is compassionately objective in her legal opinions, all of which are based on the facts of the case and current legal precedent. Elizabeth is an energetic and articulate litigator. She has always been fully prepared for every curve ball that was thrown at us both in and out of the court room. Elizabeth was highly recommended when I hired her to represent me. I have recommended her to my friends in the past and I would recommend her in the future, without reservation, to anyone who requires a divorce lawyer.

-Client


I have witnessed first hand how Sarah handles herself in the courtroom & I have to say, we hired the BEST! Whenever I have needed to speak with Sarah, she has been available or has always promptly returned my call.

-Client


Elizabeth is a consummate professional whose character is beyond reproach. She is a person of the utmost integrity and ethics. She is a dedicated family law attorney who will fight to the bitter end for her clients. Finally, in a court room where attorneys often times become distracted from their intended path and may falter, Elizabeth stays calm and collected and stays the course. I imagine this is partly due to the fact that she may be the smartest person in that court room.
As you can see, I have boundless respect and admiration for Elizabeth as a professional and a person. To me, there is no other choice.
