Sarah Armstrong and Katie Webb are two of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with! Sarah is so down to earth and understanding when it comes to divorce, and the struggles and tribulations that follow. Katie is so very helpful and prompt with returning calls and E-Mails. I found wonderful people during a not so wonderful time in my life. I highly recommend them and their firm! (Not to mention being extremely affordable)

My entire family has relied on Sarah Armstrong’s superior legal expertise for over 5 years. Sarah was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable while handling some business affairs for my mother. Additionally, Sarah has been my go-to legal expert for various issues related to an estate I was made executor of after the passing of a family member. Her advise has been so beneficial to me and my loved ones, I cannot thank her enough for her excellent services.

New Mexico Legal Group has been & continues to be the best decision I could have ever made. They were there for me in a time of total & complete crisis & despair. Sarah Armstrong has the inate ability to understand when her client needs some tough love about there ongoing child custody issue, or a hug. She has a keen ability to keep you rational when we as parents are at our most irrational state, when it comes to our most precious thing our children. She is able to more than competently represent you in the courtroom, but more importantly (as I have now learned & experienced) as a strong, compassionate, advocate in the months, even years it can take to resolve these very emotional trying issues of again the most important thing in the world OUR CHILDREN. I highly recommend NM Legal Group & in the field of child custody specifically Sarah Armstrong is the absolute best. I say that from an unfortunate area of experience. I went thru & retained 3 other “supposed” top NM custody attorneys & consulted with several others before finding NM Legal Group & Sarah Armstrong specifically. They get results, but genuinely care about you & your family & prepare you for & continue to support you thru the ever changing very challenging aspect of ‘Coparenting’ which is very RARE in the legal field.
