“I realize that most of our clients come to us for help during some of the hardest times of their entire lives. I never want our clients to feel alone in what they are going through,” said Sarah-James. “I love working at Elder Law Guidance because I am encouraged to be the best version of myself. I am able to connect with clients on a personal and human level.”

“As a child of two small business owners, frequenting small businesses means a lot to me. I worked in my dad’s gas station after summer softball practices and in my mom’s salon after school. Those are great memories for me.”
“My husband and I try to have a ‘local dinner’ one night a week at a locally-owned or locally-sourced restaurant. A local business I like to frequent regularly is Coffee @ Oak and Main in Nicholasville.”
