"I’m a CPA and Sara Padua was first introduced to me by one of my clients. I was impressed with her work on that client, and have since referred other work to her and been very impressed. She takes her client’s interests to heart, and works diligently on their behalf. Class act representation."

R. Webb & Family

"Padua Law Firm provided excellent legal guidance in navigating through a complicated commercial real estate transaction. Their team’s deep knowledge of the real estate industry was very practical and beneficial for me as we carefully went over all aspects of the deal which had an impact on me such as lender, title, strategy, liability, and basic tax matters (which he referred me to a CPA for more complex tax issues)."
