Summary

Sarah has represented clients in a variety of areas including divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, termination of parental rights, dependency and neglect actions, orders of protection, adoption, LBGT family law issues, mediation, paternity fraud, prenuptial agreements, grandparent visitation, guardianships, pet custody agreements, and basic will packages.

Sarah’s undergraduate degree in Psychology, past work in a domestic violence legal clinic, and work as an intern to the Sex Crimes and Child Abuse division of the Indianapolis Prosecutor’s Office have given her a unique insight into some of the more delicate issues related to family law matters. Because of this background, Sarah strives to be a zealous advocate for her clients while at the same time building relationships focused upon individual needs.

Sarah’s dedication to her clients is demonstrated by her numerous awards and recognitions. For three years in a row the American Institute Of Family Law Attorneys has named Sarah as one of the “Ten Best Attorneys For Client Satisfaction” in Tennessee. In 2015 the National Association of Family Law Attorneys named Sarah a nationally-ranked, “Top 10 Under 40.” In 2016 and in 2017 she was named a “Rising Star” by the Mid-South Super Lawyers. In 2017, the American Society of Legal Advocates named her one of the “Top 40 Lawyers Under 40 in the State of Tennessee.” In 2017 the American Jurist Institute named Sarah one of the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys in Tennessee.

Sarah is proud to have been nominated for inclusion in the Belmont University American Inn of Court where she meets monthly with other attorneys to mentor first year law students and to conduct continuing legal education programs. She is also honored to serve on the Tennessee Bar Association Family Law Committee Executive Council where she conferences with other attorneys throughout Tennessee to discussed proposed legislative changes in the field of family law.
