Sarah graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas School of Law. She is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas. Sarah has wide ranging experience in the areas of insurance defense, eminent domain, employment law and civil rights litigation for corporate and governmental clients. She is also approved by the Travis County District Court as a Court-Appointed Family Lawyer, representing children and indigent parents in Child Protective Services cases, an area of practice which fulfills her goal of serving the community.
