Sara is a health care attorney for Chapman Law Group’s Sarasota Office. She is dedicated to the defense of individual health care practitioners as well as health care entities.


Prior to joining the Firm, Sara worked for the Board of Governors of the State of Florida University System under the University of Florida J. Hillis Miller Health Center Self-Insurance Program defending participating health care providers. She worked on an array of topics related to trial preparation and alternative dispute resolution for malpractice defense cases.


Her passion for health care law brought her to work for the University of Florida Health System and Shands Hospital both as a legal intern and a compliance intern. Sara worked especially on physician billing regulatory compliance issues, including but not limited to Stark law, Antikickback Statute, and the False Claims Act.


Sara also worked for H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute where she predominantly focused on cybersecurity governance protocols, telemedicine initiatives, and regulatory compliance relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Sara’s experience also includes the due diligence review of various contractual agreements ranging from business associate agreements to pharmacy benefits management contracts for both public and private health care entities.


Sara received her law degree in 2017 from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. While in law school, Sara helped create the Mental Health Law Association to serve students by providing educational and networking opportunities, while offering a more open environment surrounding mental illness and the legal sphere. Sara conducted independent research on State Bar Associations’ inquiries into the mental health of applicants and wrote a thesis analyzing the difference between behavior and mental health as predictors for fitness to practice. Her thesis was titled “Mental Health Disclosure Requirements in State Bar Applications: A Proposed Change.”


Sara believes in being proactive in her community. During her law school career she volunteered her legal skills and received the Pro Bono Certificate of Outstanding Achievement upon graduation for completing over 105 hours of pro bono work for the Gainesville community.


Sara attended the University of South Florida Muma College of Business, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Economics, Cum Laude. Upon graduation, Sara received the Undergraduate Scholar Award for her efforts creating the “Honors College Leadership and Success Seminar Series” which aimed to provide students with the tools necessary for success going beyond academic achievement, including connecting young college students with successful entrepreneurs and mentors within the Tampa Bay area.

Sara is the best!
I contacted Sara for assistance and was immediately impressed with her knowledge of my field and healthcare laws. She took the time to listen to the details of my case and captured it all in a letter which resolved the issue. She is passionate and driven when representing her clients. I am so grateful for all of her help!

Fast and Efficient!
I contacted Sara about an AHCA issue on a Thursday afternoon. By Friday evening she and her team had sent letters in my defense to AHCA and my employer. The letters were detailed and stated exactly what I needed them to. By Thursday of the next week my matter was resolved and I had no disciplinary action against me! I cannot thank Sara and her team enough for helping me through this crisis! They were excellent!

Hire Sara!
I was recommended by a friend to consult Sara for a case against my medical license. She was very relatable and nonjudgmental during our phone consultation. Compared to some other lawyers I spoke to that seemed very money driven, Sara was knowledgeable and passionate about helping people. My case was dismissed in just a few months (with a refundable retainer)! I am extremely happy I chose to hire her for my case and highly recommend her to everyone!

The best!
I hired Sara because I had a complaint filed against my medical field license. She quickly understood my situation and diligently put on a defense which was successful in getting my case dismissed. She is smart, kind, and goes out of her way to assure you understand every step of the case. I am forever grateful for her honest and passionate work and I highly recommend her to everyone!

Outstanding Lawyer
Sara handled my case with ease and confidence. She was honest and realistic throughout the journey until my case got completely dismissed. She was encouraging and gracious. She did not sugar-coat and she showed amazing professionalism during the process. She helped me to have a peace of mind during the long and stressful months of waiting for the results. I strongly recommend Sara for your needs.

ABOVE AND BEYOND, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I contacted Sara on very short notice with a very serious and pressing threat on my medical license. In less than 24 hours she developed my case assessment and defense strategy demonstrating a very thorough understanding of all matters related to the defense of medical licenses and substance abuse problems. My problem was promptly resolved. My experience with Ms Bazzigaluppi has been outstanding and I highly recommend her.

Outstanding Attorney
It was with a very heavy heart that I found myself in search of an Attorney last November, But how extremely fortunate I was to find Sara Bazzigaluppi. She was incredibly knowledgeable in these uncharted waters I found myself in. A cruel and unimaginable situation, that left me in a complete state of despair. But through her knowledge, compassion and kindness, I felt as if, I was not alone and I felt like she really had all of my best interests at heart. I wasn't wrong!!! Sara was amazing and had my case dismissed and my 30+ years as a RN, my soul identity restored. I am ever so grateful and would highly recommend her as an attorney to anyone who needs.

Excellent and responsive service
Sara went to work on my case immediately and crafted a successful defense and strategy. She was very responsive, kind, and professional. I would highly recommend her for issues relating to the FBON. She mitigated what would normally be a gut wrenching experience with compassion and caring.

Medical license matter
My case was a very private matter but from the initial interview with Sara till completion she was attentive, understanding, and steadfast in her approach to my case. Despite many times that I had doubts on a positive resolution, she stayed positive. She kept me updated with monthly reports on case progression and immediately informed me of any urgent changes. I appreciate her dedication to my case and wish her the very best.

Successful medical license application
Sara worked tirelessly to help me prepare my application for a medical license in Florida. She pulled through and was true to her word when my career was on the line. Sara is honest, capable, and pleasant to work with even when the stress of my situation got the better of me. Would recommend to anyone in need.

DO NOT HIRE
I had a possible case with the FL BOH 2 years ago. Her fee with Chapman Law Group was on par with all others at 5k to start. I sent retainer of $2500., with agreement to send balance in 1 month . Only spoke with her once briefly to discuss her fee. She charges BY THE MINUTE, and was only ever to get through to receptionist or assistant. I hired Meghan Blancho instead, who had free, lengthy consult, and returned my calls personally within hours. Sara B got very irate when I informed her I had hired another, and no longer required her services. I did not expect a refund, but at this point she had done NOTHING. She sent me a false statement, outlining expenses that far exceeded the $2500. I had paid. Mind you, there was no charge against me at that point, she had sent no letters, Nothing but initial consult. Horrible, degrading attitude. Charged me for her time consulting senior lawyers in her group (I doubt it bc there was no case at this time) STAY AWAY FROM CHAPMAN LAW, ESPECIALLY SARA BAZZIGALUPI!!!!
