SaraYou could say that helping people with their debt problems is in my blood. I’m a second generation bankruptcy attorney and I’ve seen the difference it can make for people all of my life.

I earned my law degree and passed the state bar in 2002. During law school I also clerked for Rufus Edmisten at the Edmisten and Webb Law Firm, wrote for and served as advertising manager for the Campbell Law Observer and worked in the law school library.

I was sworn in as an attorney by Judge Jane Grey in Wake County Court in September of 2002. I continued to work for the Edmisten and Webb Law Firm until I started my own bankruptcy law practice later that year. I have since worked in law firms in the Triangle until returning to Sanford to practice at my father’s firm in December of 2007. In October of 2010, I decided to strike out on my own again, and here I am.

I am admitted to practice before all state courts in North Carolina; the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of the North Carolina Federal Court and the United States Supreme Court. However, I primarily practice in the Middle District of North Carolina which includes Chatham, Durham, Hoke, Lee, Moore, Orange, Person, Scotland, but I’m willing to represent people in other areas as well.

In addition to my experience in bankruptcy law, I had a career in marketing and public relations in the Triangle area prior to entering law school. The two years before entering law school, I was the Director of Communications for Pines of Carolina Girl Scout Council. I earned my undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University.

I am a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the National Association of Bankruptcy Attorneys and president of the Lee County Bar Association. I volunteer with Boys and Girls Club, United Way and Lee County Industries (LCI).

I believe that bankruptcy law is my calling. I find it rewarding to help clients get relief from their debt problems and get a fresh start.
