Sara helps companies of all sizes manage their most important (and riskiest) asset—their people. She collaborates with clients to implement best employment practices, find creative solutions to employee disputes, and draft policies and agreements.
Sara regularly represents employers before the DOL, EEOC and NLRB, as well as in litigation in state and federal courts across the country. Known for her thorough pursuit of facts and legal arguments, she has obtained successful outcomes in cases involving the Fair Labor Standards Act, the National Labor Relations Act, non-compete agreements, Title VII, and related state statutes.
While her practice focuses primarily on employment and labor law, Sara also serves generally as outside counsel to several clients. For small businesses, she handles day-to-day legal and litigation matters, and for an international organization, oversees the engagement of counsel and a diverse docket of matters across the country. A portion of Sara’s practice also focuses on advising trade organizations on labor legislation and proposals at the state and federal level.
In 2017 and again in 2018, Sara was the youngest lawyer selected as a “Georgia Rising Star” by Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine in the area of Employment & Labor, an honor given to less than 2.5 percent of lawyers nominated by peers and selected through independent research. Sara is also a contributing author to the firm’s Employment & Labor Perspectives blog.
In law school, Sara clerked at the Atlanta District Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the US Department of Labor’s Office of the Solicitor, and for Chief Justice Carol Hunstein of the Supreme Court of Georgia. In addition, she researched and published several articles on constitutional exemptions to Title VII as a member of the editorial board of the Emory Law Journal.
