Divorce doesn’t have to be nasty. The modern family doesn’t need to be in conflict forever. I’m here to help!

I am Sarah Pfeiffer, single mom, attorney, and fiercely positive legal advocate for all types of families.

I work with families to build a pathway through conflict that creates lasting peace, more financial security, space for personal and parental growth, and allows the adults involved to model healthy relationships for their children.

A better life is coming. I can help you find it.

Mission Statement

Law for the Rest of Us strives to create positive change in the lives of families in divorce, child custody, and child support conflicts by providing legal counsel, advocacy, and education.
