Practice Areas: Products Liability and Mass Tort Litigation
Raised in rural Iowa, Sara comes from a family of teachers and farmers. The rewards and responsibilities of a small-town lifestyle taught her respect for hard work. Sara moved to Athens, Georgia for college, studied abroad in Mexico, and attended law school at night paying her way by clerking full-time at an NYC firm. Her legal practice focuses on product liability and mass tort litigation with extensive experience in federal Multi-District Litigation.
With over 20 years of experience in both plaintiff and defense work, Sara’s role at the firm allows her to spend much of her time working directly with clients to build each case based on individual circumstances and to resolve each case in a way that maximizes recovery. After a winding path, which included a sabbatical year abroad in Berlin, Germany, Sara has returned “home” to her college town where she has built a life in a rural setting with her husband of over 20 years, their two sons, and a big bluetick hound.
In her free time, she enjoys keeping bees and riding with a local foxhunting club dedicated to horses, and hounds and preserving the rural lifestyle. Sara is admitted to practice in New York and Georgia.
