Sara engenders a great deal of trust through her responsiveness and her determination to go the distance in resolving matters according to each client’s objectives. Prior to joining the firm, she served as national discovery counsel for a Fortune 500 company and is skilled at navigating complex, sensitive discovery issues.
One of Sara’s most rewarding professional experiences comes from her pro bono work. Sara’s retention in a particular matter made her realize her performance can be life-changing for the client. As a member of the Women’s Leadership Committee, Sara advocated for her firm’s partnership in supporting the summer debate institutes at the University of Texas at Dallas, her alma mater, and made a lead gift to establish the Drinker Biddle Women in Debate Scholarship aimed at attracting, retaining and advancing women’s participation in high school debate. Sara was a member of the UT Dallas debate team, and was the first woman and minority qualifier to the National Debate Tournament from UT Dallas.
While Sara considers Pensacola, Florida, her hometown, as the daughter of a Navy intelligence officer she has lived in many places, including her mother’s hometown of Seoul, South Korea. This diverse experience made Sara adaptable, flexible, and self-disciplined ─characteristics of immense value in her practice of law.
