Attorney Ellijay, Ga
Who I am:
I was raised in Gwinnett County, an area my family still calls home. I moved to the North Georgia area in 2008 to attend College and instantly fell in love with the mountains. After graduating from Law School I moved back to North Georgia with my son, Beckett and made my home here. I am an active member of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. Growing up in Metro Atlanta and spending my adult life making my home in North Georgia has let me build a connection to the people in both areas and given me a better understanding of local Juries and Judges across the State.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Georgia (UNG) in Dahlonega, Georgia and graduated in the top 15% of my class from Mercer University School of Law.
Areas of Practice:
After graduating law school I immediately began focusing my work on representing those accused of crimes and others needing help overcoming mistakes hoping for a second chance – this had always been my passion.
After joining Teague Law I added family law, juvenile law, and personal injury to my practice. It brings me incredible joy to be able to provide all my clients with a second chance, whether that is after criminal charges, or an emotionally charged divorce – I believe every person should be given a second chance.
I joined the Teague Law team in 2018 after practicing in the metro Atlanta based firm for several years. I have traveled from Muscogee to Augusta, Dublin to the Tennessee line fighting for justice and protecting the rights of my clients. I have handled criminal cases ranging from minor traffic offenses and DUIs to serious felony charges including vehicular homicide, rape, and trafficking. My family law practice includes helping clients navigate through complicated divorces, child custody disputes, adoptions, child support actions, pre and post-nuptials and many other domestic issues.
Why I Do This:
My passion is helping those that have been arrested and those facing any domestic relations matters. As someone who has been through an emotional divorce myself, I understand exactly how my clients feel navigating their domestic matters. While I enjoy helping clients come to an amicable agreement in their family law cases, I understand that a settlement is not always a viable option for many families. That is why my practice focuses on litigating complex family law matters. In 2019, I handled more than a dozen trials in addition to the numerous cases that settled through mediation or a mutual agreement.
My passion for the law and my clients can be evidenced by my 70+ 5 star reviews by former clients, including one client who had this to say – “I could not be any more pleased with her services or the outcome of my situation. It's not easy to find a lawyer who truly cares about their clients, and will work so diligently and passionately as Ms. Illg has handled my case.” More of my reviews through Avvo can found here.
This is Personal:
While many lawyers believe it is best practice not to make their client’s case personal, I strongly believe if a client’s case is not “personal” to you, you may not be the best lawyer for the job – if you do not get upset at the possibility of your client being taken advantage of by the government or an opposing party, you may not be the best lawyer for the job; If you cannot understand and empathize with your client going through one of the worst times in their life, you may not be the best lawyer for the job. Each of my clients, no matter the issue have found themselves thrown into the legal system and each deserves the best advocate by their side fighting each step of the way for them.
Awards & Recognition:
In September 2019 I graduated from the Bill Daniel Trial Advocacy Program, an intensive program offered by the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys (“GACDL”) focusing on advanced trial skills and techniques. In October 2019, I was invited on CourtTV on multiple occasions as a legal correspondent to provide my opinion as a criminal defense attorney on several high profile crimes in the media. In November 2019, I was invited to give a presentation on the exclusion of evidence in front of more than 200 attorneys.
CLIENTS LOVE SARAH
Sarah has done an outstanding job for me during my case. She has went above and beyond to do everything in her power to help me. She constantly made sure I understood everything and was aware of all of my options. She is a very understanding person and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Sarah helped me with a custody/legitimation case. I was very pleased with the outcome. She is professional, knowledgeable and prompt in returning messages or phone calls (which is really nice when you have questions) I would definitely trust in her again in the future.
She had everything laid out perfectly for when we got to court she advised me to knock my stuff out before my case that would have been required and it helped me get my charges reduced and keep them off my record. She did a fantastic job and I hope to god I don’t but if I get into any other trouble she’ll be the first I call.
If you are looking for an attorney, Sarah Sevcech is the way to go. Sarah was a dream to work with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Her professional and dedication is astonishing. She handled our case so well and was able to get us the outcome we were hoping for. We are so happy to have been able to use Sarah!
I hired Sarah to represent me in a divorce. When I consulted with Sarah, I had told her that my wife and I had just separated and she was only letting me see the children every other weekend. I told her this is what I thought dad’s typically received from the court. She immediately told me I was just as much of a parent and when my wife refused to let me see the children 50% of the time.
Can not recommend Sarah ENOUGH
Do you need a lawyer who won’t stop until she wins? Sarah gets the job done every time. She is comforting and has really eased my stress about my situation. I have referred her to my friends and I always get a sincere “ thank you” from them. She is a tough negotiator. I call her my tenacious bulldog lawyer.
Sarah and the Teague Law firm were great. They took great care of me during a very tough time. She was very responsive, answered all of my questions, was compassionate about my situation, and was very affordable. I have referred others to Sara and they too have had nothing but great things to say about their experience with her and the firm.
Sarah is an amazing person and she helped me and supported me with my case. Such a dedicated and determined lawyer and really pushed my case in the right direction. I appreciate everything she done for my family and I. Would give her more stars if it was an option.

Sarah has been great to work with. She has always answered any concerns or questions that I have had in a very prompt and professional manner. Her advice is top notch, and she has always been very honest and open about expectations for the outcome of court. As a father fighting for custody of my children, I was very glad to find a lawyer that wasn't trying to promise me the world just in order to make a profit off my situation.
