Sadie’s passion for family law began through her experience as an intern at San Francisco Superior Court Family Law Facilitator’s Office and as a Judicial Extern for a Family Law Judge in San Francisco, while attending Golden Gate University School of Law, where she earned a specialization certificate in Family Law and was a recipient of the CALI Award for Exceptional Achievement in Family Law Practice in 2012. Sadie has been practicing family law throughout the Bay Area since her admission to the California Bar in 2012, and exclusively since 2013. Prior to that time, Sadie utilized her litigation and criminal law specialization certificates earned in law school, gaining extensive courtroom experience which she incorporates into her family law cases.
Sadie and her wife relocated to Colorado in October of 2016 but Sadie continued on as a Senior Associate Attorney at a prominent law firm in San Francisco until joining the Morgan, Tidalgo, Sukhodrev, & Azzolino, LLP team in October of 2020. Although Sadie continues to reside in Denver, with her wife, Kelin, and two dogs, Nick & Gwen, and is licensed to practice law in Colorado, her heart is in two places and she still calls the Bay Area home. She continues to advocate zealously for her clients, frequently traveling to litigate in California as necessary.
Sadie takes an individualized approach to each case. She involves her clients each step of the way, so that the client may make educated decisions about their matter. She strategizes directly with her client to determine the best course of action to address the client’s goals in an effort to achieve the best outcome for that client. Although Sadie has significant experience in all areas of family law, she has extensive experience with cases involving domestic violence and restraining orders, high conflict custody matters, high asset property division, complex support issues, and premarital and postnuptial agreements.
