Sarah began her legal career working as a clerk at a downtown Austin civil litigation boutique while pursuing her undergraduate degree in journalism at the University of Texas.  She studied law at UHLC, where she served as Head Articles Editor for the Houston Journal of International Law, worked as a research scholar for the A.A. White Dispute Resolution Center, and published a research paper with the ABA.  She graduated in the top quarter of her class in 2012, and after passing the bar, went to work as an associate at a small Houston firm. 

 

Concentrating in business litigation, Sarah has worked on dozens of commercial, real estate, collection, receivership, and fraudulent transfer matters. Inside the courtroom, she has appeared on both sides of the aisle, with extensive motion practice and considerable bench and jury trial experience. 

 

Her passion for the law started at an early age, when she met her attorney ad litem, appointed to fight for her rights as she was thrust into the foster care system.  His drive and his counsel were guideposts in an otherwise tumultuous time.  As a result, Sarah has an egalitarian approach to the justice system and firmly believes that everyone deserves access to high-quality representation and someone who will zealously fight for their best interests.
