Sarah’s practice focuses on the areas of mental health law and elder law. Sarah represents family members in applying for the appointment of a Guardian for their loved one. If needed, in connection with the guardianship application, she pursues related remedies to prevent or delay eviction proceedings, obtain Mental Hygiene Warrants for a court-ordered mental health evaluation, or retain a mental health case manager. She frequently receives appointments to serve as Court Evaluator and Counsel to the Alleged Incapacitated Person in guardianship matters. Sarah also prepares Advanced Directives such as Powers of Attorney and Health Care Proxies which help family members provide support for a relative suffering from a mental illness.


Additionally, Sarah represents several major hospital systems in guardianship matters and Mental Hygiene Law Article 9 proceedings for retention, treatment and Assisted Outpatient Treatment of their psychiatric patients.
