Sara is married to a wonderful guy named Eric. They have two children, Mariah (16) and Andrew (19). She loves to downhill ski and play her tenor saxophone with her band, the Rhythm Club. She graduated from Hastings College of Law in San Francisco in 1983 and immediately set out to rural Washington State to represent mostly migrant farm workers who were not paid wages or treated fairly on the job and to bring civil rights actions against police, INS, school districts. She went to work for Legal Service in the Bay Area where she represented very poor tenants and some battered women. She was snapped into her family business by the death of her uncle in 1991.
