I’m Sarah.

I am an employment lawyer. I specialize in workplace antidiscrimination laws. As a prosecutor, I enforced the law and stood up for victims. As an Assistant Attorney General, I resolved employment claims for Virginia state agencies. I help employees with employment issues and stand up for them in the courtroom. I advise employers regarding policies, procedures and legal claims. Whether you are an employee facing discrimination or harassment in your workplace or an employer who needs to conduct an investigation or plan a training, I am here to help with your employment matters.

Your employment matters. You have the right to go to work without being made to feel less than or othered. Period. You are entitled to a workplace that values your uniqueness and your work. If that is not happening, please reach out so we can develop a plan to help.

Federal laws and state laws give you protection from discrimination based on your race, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy status (which includes fertility treatments and lactation), religion, national origin, age, and disability.  We are all equal under the law.  The law also protects you from retaliation after you say something to your employer about discrimination in the workplace (whether the victim of the discrimination is you or a colleague).  Navigating these issues can be challenging.  I specialize in helping facilitate the conversation and, if needed, litigating your case and standing up for you in Court. Discrimination is a serious situation that you do not need to handle alone, and I want to help.
