I have lived in Mandeville, Louisiana, for most of my life. I took what I like to call the "scenic route" to get to where I am today. I got married and had my first child, Russell, before enrolling in college to obtain my undergraduate degree. During my four years in undergrad, I had another baby, Isabella, and then got divorced. I am now remarried to my wonderfully kind and supporting husband, Chris, and I have had my third and final child, Ava James. After getting remarried and having another baby, I decided to finish pursuing my childhood dream of becoming a lawyer. Being an attorney has always been my final career goal, I just took the longer route to enjoy the view on the way to my destination. I have now arrived, and I love practicing law! I joined Magee, Zeringue & Richardson in August of 2014.

I believe that clients should be treated with kindness and respect, and my goal is to do just that. I return telephone calls promptly, and I tend to act quickly once a decision has been made to move forward. I am not easily intimidated and can be aggressive when appropriate. I am honest with my clients and expect the same from them. Knowledge is power, and whether the information is good or bad, it is always better to know in the beginning. I welcome an opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your legal issues. Please feel free to contact me for an appointment at (985) 773-0764, or email me for an appointment at sarabeth@wmageelaw.com.
