Alison is AMAZING!!! Don’t look anywhere else!

Alison was able to get me a great plea deal on a sex crime that would of ruined my record. She was professional from the very start. She did not take no for an answer. I called her after my first attorney had zero success in working something out with the DA. She fought hard for me and was so positive and confident from the start. I would recommend her to anyone who is going through a similar or other criminal charge. She was easy to work with when it came to payment. Give her a call! She will do an amazing job!

Excellent professional Lawyer

She helped my husband who had a suspended license for 100 years. She did an exceptional job, it was a very tangled case our previous lawyer really mixed up everything she was great at figuring everything out she made her plan set her mind to it and accomplished what seemed nearly impossible to us. I am grateful I found Alison to represent us she's an outstanding lawyer without a doubt she proved nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it, I highly without any doubt recommend Alison to anyone looking to see results she is great at her job and communication with others like the D.A and judge she strives for success!

Best of the BEST

I had hired her as a criminal defense attorney and I could not have asked for a better attorney to represent my case. She handled my case with professionalism and charisma that led to getting me the best deal we had hoped for my case. She is extremely knowledgable, professional, charismatic, and very personable. Going to court for a crime is nerve-racking as it is but the way she approached and handled my case made me feel reassured. She will fight for what is right and I highly recommend her for any legal issues you might have.

The best of the best in both criminal defense AND education law

Last year I found myself in an extremely shocking and stressful situation that involved a Title 9 case. After gathering my thoughts, I called numerous attorneys in the area. Alison was by far the most caring, and importantly the most knowledgeable and intelligent lawyer that I spoke with. I was honestly lucky to find her and her team. If you need a lawyer with experience in criminal and/or education law, Alison and her team are the very best out there. Not only is she an extraordinary attorney, she's also intelligent, hardworking, punctual, compassionate, strong and overall an incredible person that I admire highly and look up to. I will never forget everything Alison and her team did to help me get through a very dark period in my life with the best possible outcome. I am forever thankful to Alison and her team, and I HIGHLY recommend her for any criminal or educational cases.

Like a Second Mom

Alison Saros is like a second mom to me. She put in countless hours and helped me physically and mentally deal with the hardest legal, financial situation in my entire life. I was dealing with a fabricated situation at my university, and her educational law experiences have helped me understand and endure the living-hell situation I was going through. Regardless of my lack of financial situation, that did not stop her from putting in countless hours of her effort towards me. Not only is she a phenomenal attorney, she’s an overall great person. She’s smart, caring, and loving, which is the type of support I needed. Thank you Alison for everything!

Invaluable go-to resource for working with school system

We retained Ali for help with both our daughters. She was invaluable in helping our older daughter get into a college that best met her academic and emotional support needs. And again with our younger daughter who had major anxiety issues that could have crushed her, but is now thriving given the interventions that Ali worked out with the school system. Ali has attended 504 plan meetings with us, and helped with some last-minute teacher changes that were not a fit. Ali has that unique combination: a lawyer who understands student and disability rights, and a counselor who understands the emotional/psychological aspects and can have empathy for all (including the school system and the challenges they face). She definitely knows how to work with school systems so kids get what they need to succeed – in a fair and respected way.

Upper Deck Homerun

I found myself in an unfortunate dilemma regarding a family law issue/hearing and per the recommendation of a attorney friend, Ali was my “go to attorney” to resolve my situation. Ali and her team, were professional, prepared and above all, understood the law to the letter regarding my hearing. Ali’s hard work and preparation spared me a great deal of time and “headache” and resolved the hearing to my benefit. While I use the term “air-tight” loosely, Ali’s hard work paid off HUGE in my favor and I was able to put the non-sense behind me for good. I strongly reccomend Ali for any legal issues you might experience.

Outstanding Lawyer!

Alison Saros produced fantastic results for my children’s IEP meetings. She’s personable, knowledgeable, professional, organized and a powerhouse that’s not afraid to tell it like it is! Her experience in the educational system and background as a district attorney, make her an extraordinary advocate. She will fight for what’s right. I’m eternally grateful for her hard work and pleased with the successful outcome.
