About Sarah

Sarah (she/her) has a general litigation practice—focused on estate litigation, civil litigation and insurance defence—as well as a wills and estate planning practice.

Before entering the legal realm, Sarah had a career in the political sphere. Her experience working in political offices at all orders of government and on dozens of campaigns in the past 20 years gives her a thorough understanding of how to anticipate and meet clients’ needs, succeed in high performance environments, build community relationships and manage crises.

With a background in the arts, Sarah is active in the creative community as a board member of the Teichert Gallery and chair of One Light Theatre. She also volunteers with Halifax Pride and spends her free time enjoying the outdoors when she isn’t supporting local political campaigns.

During law school, Sarah placed as a Top Ten Oral Advocate award winner at the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court competition in 2020. She is also an active member of the international community of the Dallaire Institute for Children, Peace and Security. Sarah is a member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society and the Canadian Bar Association.
