Sarah Yaeger, counsel in the firm’s Atlanta office and member of the Real Estate Practice, received the Young Lawyers Division State Bar of Georgia’s Award of Achievement for Outstanding Service to the Bar at the organization’s annual meeting on June 7 – 10, 2018. The recognition highlights Sarah’s ongoing commitment to bar initiatives, including her service as co-leader for this year’s Young Lawyers Division Leadership Academy.

In the coming year, she will serve as co-chair for the upcoming Leadership Academy class, a position to which she was appointed by incoming Young Lawyers Division President and Toombs County Chief Magistrate Judge Rizza Palmares O’Connor. By appointment of the president of the State Bar of Georgia, Ken Hodges, she will join the Military Legal Assistance Program Committee, which facilitates pro bono representation of veterans and service members in addressing their unmet legal needs.

In addition to her investment in Georgia’s legal community, Sarah is looked to for her experience in real estate and property law. Her practice involves a wide range of real property matters, including the representation of utilities and lenders in the purchase and sale of real property, negotiating and acquiring easement rights, commercial loan transactions, and loan workouts.
