Sarah graduated cum laude (top 20%) from BYU’s J. Reuben Clark law school before returning to her native Arizona to practice law. She currently practices business and transactional law, with an emphasis on estate planning, probate, trust administration, business and entity formation, and commercial transactions. Sarah works with large businesses, small businesses and everything in between. She has represented trusts and estates with values in excess of $10M and at the same time worked with the widow(er) and indigent. One of her favorite parts about practicing law is helping clients approach complex issues and transactions through a creative and collaborative lens.

Sarah holds a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Humanities and loves to learn about art, music, literature, and architecture. She obtained her Juris Doctorate in 2018. She loves to travel and before becoming an attorney, she volunteered in the South African bush to fight against rhino poaching.

She is also an avid writer. Her work has been featured in The BYU Advocate (September 2018), BYU Magazine (January 2018), and the East Valley Tribune (October 2019). These pieces are linked in the “Publication” section below.

Judge Ed Carnes, Chief Judge for the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals called Sarah’s essay entitled ‘We Built Walls’ (published in The BYU Advocate): “One of the finest I have read. It is superbly constructed, well laid out, and masterfully written in every respect. It also shows a keen sense of history and familiarity with broad themes of life and existence that is unusual in one of [Sarah’s] age.”
