Sarah has been practicing workers' compensation law for over 11 years and serves on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Workers' Compensation Claimant's section of the Georgia Trial Lawyer's Association, the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Bar Association's Workers' Compensation Section, the Executive Committee for the Georgia Injured Workers' Advocates, and serves on the Super Lawyer's Rising Stars National Board of Directors. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for college and Case Western Reserve School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. Sarah moved 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 gaining extensive trial experience while working as a Special Assistant Attorney General, Sarah began practicing workers' compensation law for a large defense firm, initially representing 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 to get them to settle their claims for less than they were due. Sarah uses the 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 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, Georgia Injured Workers Advocates, and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. Sarah is also the President of Holiday Helping Hands, Inc., a non-profit she created to help the children of injured workers with presents during the holidays.

I hired Stottlemeyer and Associates to handle a workman’s compensation claim. I found Sarah and Katie to be very professional, patient, and personable. They make a great team! They took the pressure of dealing with the other party off of me. I am impressed with their availability, willingness to listen, knowledge, thoroughness, organizational skills, and compassion. They took the time to explain how the claims process works and they paid meticulous attention to detail. I sincerely appreciated their expertise. They were always available to answer my questions. Their thoughtfulness and dedication are very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this firm! I want to thank them for all of the effort they put into my case. They listened to me many times without interruption. They are presently aggressively fighting on my behalf. I appreciate them more than they will ever know.

Dedicated, Dependable, and Compassionate Attorney
Are you suffering from a work-related injury? Well let me introduce you to Stottlemyer & Associates. I was referred to Attorney Sarah Stottlemyer when I really needed an attorney. I was afraid to trust any attorney. During my initial phone consultation, I knew within 5 minutes that I wanted Sarah to represent me. Her compassion toward my situation and her understanding me not knowing the process, won me over. My initial face to face meeting with Sarah, she introduced me to PA Katie Teague. Katie personality is that of a nice, but strong personality. I sure needed this when my checks did not come on time, she made it happen!!!! My experience with my workman’s comp case was like a roller coaster, but it felt so good to have a dynamic attorney and a powerful paralegal to ride this ride with me. They handled every challenge speedily and took care of my needs. Sarah and Katie professionalism, communication, promptness, knowledge, and hard work is Top Notch. I am a satisfied former client. TP

Look no further - the best is right here!
I am more than grateful to have been represented by Sarah in my work comp case! She definitely fought for me, allowing me to receive a very fair settlement. I had an unusual injury requiring two surgeries, leaving me with unresolved problems that weren't being addressed by my surgeon. Upon retaining Sarah's services, she immediately got me under the care of an amazing surgeon who quickly diagnosed and treated what was causing my continued symptoms. Throughout the process, Sarah and Katie were extremely down to earth, knowledgeable, informative, patient and responsive. They treated me with such care and empathy - as if I were a part of their family.

Sarah Rocks.
Stottlemeyer & Associates was an absolute life saver for My Family. Without Sarah's constant attention and all out hustle we wouldn't have gotten anything from the company whose negligence caused my injury. As a firm they were personable, attentive, and sympathetic to my family’s needs while fighting the worker’s comp people every step of the way to guarantee I received the best care. Without Sarah Stottlemeyer, I would be permanently injured, unable to work to provide for My Family and out of pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars. Because of her, I am recovered, healthy, working and we received a nice settlement for the damage they caused to my body & psyche. They will listen, pay attention to your case and keep you informed at all times through the duration of your case. Either Sarah or Katie would return our call immediately for even the smallest question and were very cool about giving us their time and help. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother and more professional law firm to fight for us. Make the call.

Highly skilled professional, attentive to detail and treats you like a loved family member.
I am beyond grateful to have acquired Sarah's services in my workman comp case with my employer. Sarah knows the law and knows the system well and can help with any questions or problems that arise immediately. If anyone reading this review is not sure about Sarah, trust me , I'm a real satisfied client. Her style is very clear , patient and empathetic. After my first attorney, I was very unsatisfied. Luckily I was able to find Sarah who keeps a small clientele and treated me like family.

Sarah is the greatest
As well as being a more than competent attorney she is one of the most caring and understanding people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her staff follows her lead. Thank you Sarah for all you and Katie have done. I am blessed to have known you, had you as my representation, and now have you as a friend. Scott

Great Experience
Sarah and Katie were great! They both were very empathetic and honest about everything from start to finish. They always responded to my emails and messages promptly, overall I felt very confident in their abilities throughout the process. They were always there for me whenever I had a question or just needed to vent. Most importantly Sarah got me paid what I felt I deserved! I would definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Great hassle free experience
I was hurt at work; aggravating an earlier injury, Sarah knew my rights and guided me toward the best plan of action for my situation. After only a day or so of consulting I knew I wanted her in my corner. Sarah was courteous, knowledgeable and attentive to my medical and financial needs, all the while working hard on my case. I would recommend Stottlemyer and associates to anybody who asked me for an attorney. Thank You Sarah for everything!!
