Having lived, worked, and attended school in several different countries, Sarah has established a diverse background, which enables her to connect and empathize with people from all walks of life. Sarah is driven by a lifelong passion for remedying injustice. Her acute skills as a negotiator often enable her to obtain favourable out-of-court settlements for her clients; however, when necessary, she will fiercely represent her clients in court to receive a fair and just outcome. She cares deeply about her clients and works diligently to achieve successful outcomes while also keeping her legal fees within her clients’ financial means.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys spending time with her dog, Louie, and her newest addition to the family, a kitten named Huey. Sarah has maintained her passion for traveling, enjoys swimming, hiking, and working out.
