About Me

Prior to joining Key Law Group, Sarah served as family court staff attorney for the Honorable Joan L. Byer of Jefferson County (Kentucky) Family Court Division One, where she advised the Court on legal issues and applicable law, and drafted orders and opinions on various types of cases, including divorce, custody & support; dependency, abuse, and neglect (DNA); status offender; domestic violence; and paternity. She regularly interacted with attorneys and pro se litigants and her experience gives her valuable insight from a judicial perspective.

Sarah also has a strong background in legal research and writing, having served as a judicial intern to Judge Laurance B. VanMeter with the Kentucky Court of Appeals and Chief Judge Jennifer B. Coffman with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, where she prepared bench memoranda and opinions for various federal court cases and state court appeals.

Sarah began helping those with legal needs while obtaining her J.D. from the University of Kentucky College of Law, serving as a certified legal intern with the law school's legal clinic. As a member of the Legal Clinic, Sarah counseled clients in a variety of cases, including family law and divorce. In fact, working in the Legal Clinic was actually Sarah's primary inspiration for focusing her practice on family law, as she discovered a passion for using her legal skills to help others through difficult times. She was a recipient of the Milton M. and Alene F. Livingston Scholarship, and was a top advocate on the Trial Advocacy Board. Sarah also obtained her B.A. in Political Science from UK with a minor in psychology, where she participated in the Honors Program and received the Presidential Scholarship. Sarah was a Kentucky Governors Scholar and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority.

As an active member of Key Law Group and its family law & domestic relations practice, she also serves as a Parent's Attorney on the dependency, abuse, and neglect (DNA) docket in Jefferson County Family Court Division Two and is regularly appointed as a Guardian ad Litem during custody disputes and in cases of adoption. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky, and outside of the practice of law, she enjoys yoga, painting, softball, and spending time with her three nieces. Sarah has also for many years worked with high school students as an ACT, SAT, and general tutor, having served as a senior tutor for the Louisville Tutoring Agency and worked with a wide range of students at The Tutoring Club in Lexington, Kentucky.
