Her principal areas of experience and interest are criminal law, public law, and reparation.

Sarah has 15 years of court experience, and has  a wealth of knowledge in all areas of written and oral advocacy at the first instance and appellate levels. She has appeared regularly as sole counsel, and has also assisted senior counsel in complex and demanding cases for matters in the most senior courts of Ontario.  

On moving to Scotland she transferred her existing skills to the field of reparation in Scots law, working on medical negligence and historic child abuse claims, as well as public inquiry work, with a litigation firm in Edinburgh.

Sarah continues to maintain interests across a wide range of criminal and civil practice areas.
