In her years of practice at Koeller Nebeker Carlson Haluck, LLP, Sarah has proven to be an asset in complex civil litigation, including representing many of the nation’s builders in construction defect actions and bad faith insurance coverage disputes. She has been with KNCH since March 2007, initially in the Las Vegas office for over seven years then in the San Diego office thereafter. She is licensed to practice in California, Nevada, and Washington.
Sarah has a knack for understanding and handling additional insured files, which is invaluable in the representation of her clients, and has led to a published decision by the California Court of Appeal and a successful appeal to the Ninth Circuit. She is dedicated to the effective and efficient representation of all clients and has extensive experience in handling cases from inception through conclusion. Sarah’s dedication, reliability, and strong work ethic are invaluable to her clients as well as her colleagues.
Sarah was born and raised in Ojai, California. She regularly volunteered at the Ventura County Humane Society throughout her childhood and into her undergraduate years at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She majored in Law and Society, which was composed of diverse scholars whose interests involved the place of law and legal systems in social, political, economic, and cultural life, and minored in Anthropology.
During her formal legal training at California Western School of Law, Sarah was an active member of the Women’s Law Caucus and a research assistant to her property professor, which involved research regarding the role gender plays in becoming a law school dean. These interests have led her to join KNCH’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
Sarah and her husband are devoted professional sports fans, especially to the Los Angeles Lakers. She also enjoys traveling, golfing, and has an all-consuming obsession with Crossfit.
