After briefly working as a teacher, Sara realized her calling was to speak for those who could not speak for themselves and left the classroom for the courtroom.

With years of trial experience before juries and judges across the State of Texas, Sara is adept at courtroom litigation. As a prior criminal prosecutor for six years, Sara is familiar with how prosecutors and law enforcement think, act, and make their cases and arguments in court. This makes her invaluable to clients fighting criminal charges.

Sara tackles cases from an end goal perspective, navigating clients through the often confusing and frustrating process of the legal system. She has experience trying cases from speeding tickets all the way to capital murder and everything in between including DWI, drug, and assault charges.

Since leaving criminal prosecution Sara has expanded her practice to include family law, contract disputes, and real-estate litigation.

Sara has been married to Oliver Neel since 2010, both attorneys, they work together at the office.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
