What began as an idle interest in problem solving and helping others as a child, turned into a driving need for Sara to know more about the law and the legal process as a whole. Sara believes that the key to a successful file is when the lawyer and the client work as a team. The lawyer’s role is to provide the client all the options they need to make an informed decision and the client’s role is to make that decision. And, like all teams, it is essential that the lawyer and client trust one another and are working towards a common goal.
Sara appreciates the tremendous responsibility that comes with being a lawyer and the importance of trust between lawyer and client; not only are lawyers privy to extremely sensitive and personal information but the lawyer is being trusted to provide advice that will impact on the client’s life in a profound way.
An appreciation for uniqueness of cultures is also what drives Sara to want to return to Europe and learn about all the historical structures and local cuisine, so long as she can avoid fish and dairy products. What Sara won’t be avoiding is a good salad, Neapolitan style pizza and fruit as they are her “go-to” foods but she won’t have to take a trip to Europe, however, if she wants to enjoy her No. 1 favorite fruit – Red Grapes!
Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Abella is the visionary that has had the most impact on Sara because of her belief that the law must apply to, and protect, everyone which belief has formed her judicial decisions in which she has been fair and equitable.
