Profile

Sara grew up in Houston and attended the University of Texas at Austin. Sara returned to Houston to attend law school and graduated from the University of Houston Law Center in 2007. She first became interested in probate and estate planning at her first law firm, where she learned that she could provide a genuine benefit to clients by guiding them through an often-intimidating probate process. After the passing of the firm’s founding partner, Sara joined a mid-sized firm downtown where she expanded her practice to include commercial litigation and business disputes. She also continued to assist clients with probate matters, including guardianships, will contests and breach of fiduciary duty claims.

Sara joined SSBP in 2016, where she focuses on probate and trust litigation. She is a determined advocate for her clients and also a source of compassionate counsel, working to find practical solutions wherever possible.
