Mari-Elizabeth L. Sanford is a native of Memphis, Tennessee, and she joined Nahon, Saharovich, & Trotz upon graduating from law school in 2018. Ms. Sanford learned discipline early in life as a gifted performing arts student playing the piano at the age of four years. She studied piano in the Suzuki Creative and Performing Arts program at the University of Memphis, and later participated in the performing arts programs at Colonial Middle School and Overton High School. Ms. Sanford graduated sixth in her class from Overton and went on to attend the University of Memphis as a Dean’s Scholarship Recipient. She was inducted into the Helen Hardin Honors College at the University where she majored in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. Always a serious student, she graduated from the University in May 2015 in just three years. She then served an internship with the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office Special Victim’s Unit. While serving in this role, she developed a passion for the pursuit of justice for victims which later fueled her decision to study law.
In the fall of 2015, Ms. Sanford was accepted at the University of Mississippi School of Law where she excelled in her studies and received the coveted Dean’s Scholarship. She participated in several student organizations and also worked in the Child Advocacy Clinic as a student attorney. In this role, she assisted the guardian ad litem with a wide variety of legal issues, and, she even participated in the successful argument of a petition for temporary parental guardianship involving an immigrant minor which was heard in the Desoto County Chancery Court. Because she achieved the highest grade of any student participating in this Clinic, Ms. Sanford was recognized as the most outstanding student in the program and was asked to return as an advanced student the following semester.
