About Me

Sarah is originally from a small town in the mountains of North Carolina and went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for college. After graduating in 2001, she attended law school at Case Western Reserve School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, and was an Articles Editor for the Journal of International Law, was active in the Big Brother/Big Sister program with inner city children, and competed in France on the Jean Pictet International Moot Court team regarding internationl human rights law. After law school, she moved down to Atlanta in 2004 and completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Carter Center for International Peace working on the International Criminal Court developments and international human rights violations. After her admission to the Bar in 2005, she worked as a Special Assistant Attorney General for Fulton County prosecuting child deprivation claims for the Department of Family and Children Services. After gaining extensive trial experience, Sarah began practicing workers' compensation law, representing the Employers and Insurers. She practiced insurance defense for over 4 years, often witnessing how the insurance companies denied legitimate treatment  that the injured workers needed in order get them to settle their claims for less than they were due. Sarah took that knowledge that she gained during that time and applies it to each claim she now handles, representing Georgia's injured workers. Sarah is a strong trial lawyer and has a successfully handled countless workers' compensation claims at the trial level as well as all appellate levels. She is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Atlanta Bar Association, and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. She is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Workers' Compensation Claimant's section of the Georgia Bar and is on the Executive Committee for the Georgia Injured Workers' Association. Sarah is also the President of Holiday Helping Hands, Inc., a non-profit she started to help the children of injured workers with presents during the holidays.
