Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

For over a decade, lawyer Sarah Bruns has been aggressively protecting the rights of her clients in Northern Virginia.

As a seasoned trial attorney, Sarah has defended individuals charged with Murder, Rape, Robbery, Theft, and Drug Possession/Distribution. Sarah also has extensive experience in representing clients charged with traffic offenses such as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI/DUI) and Hit and Run. While some crimes carry more severe penalties than others, Sarah handles every client’s case knowing that it is the most important one for that client. She believes that no client should be treated as if their issue is of little consequence.

Sarah’s practice also extends to Family Law cases, including Divorce, Child Custody and Visitation, Child Support, Protective Orders, Child Protective Services, and Child Abuse and Neglect cases. Her experience in litigation is an asset to her clients in the courtroom, yet she also believes in the value of out-of-court client counseling and a zealous negotiation. Her clients can trust that she has the skills to advocate for them both in and out of the courtroom.

Sarah has been qualified to serve as a Guardian ad Litem for children in the Loudoun County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. In this role, she ensures that the interests of the most vulnerable are not forgotten.

At the outset of her career, Sarah clerked for the Honorable William D. Hamblen in the Circuit Court of Prince William County (31st Judicial Circuit). There, she learned firsthand what a judge expects regarding professional behavior and effective advocacy. Sarah continues to use this insight to make winning arguments for her clients.
