Sarah Ruth Anjum
Sarah R. Anjum is a passionate criminal defense attorney who strives to lead our legal community to a higher standard of criminal representation. Her unique triadic approach to every case is what distinguishes her from other attorneys.

By working all three angles simultaneously she dismantles the prosecution’s case from every front, while looking for every option to get you the best possible outcome. Attorney Anjum is also qualified for appointment in death penalty cases. She stays abreast of recent changes in the law and case law in order to use every possible avenue to fight for you. Attorney Sarah Anjum is an aggressive litigator with an encyclopedic memory of the law and proven track record of success.
