Sarah Pavlini


Focused on appellate law since law school, Sarah has cultivated a practice steeped in legal research and persuasive writing. She is exceptionally skilled at evaluating matters from their inception of litigation and approaches each case holistically – looking at the entire lifespan of a case to determine the strategy to pursue on appeal.


Sarah’s love for her constitutional law class in college was the impetus for her decision to become a lawyer. In law school, she was laser-focused on appellate law and sought internships that provided hands-on, practical training that expanded her skill set and informs her practice today. She worked for the Suffolk County (Massachusetts) District Attorney’s Office, Appellate Division; the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the District of Massachusetts Appellate Unit and the Hon. Juan R. Torruella, First Circuit of Appeals. After graduating from law school, she served as a law clerk for the New York Court of Appeals. 

Sarah has intentionally held positions that provided her with a well-rounded appellate background. She has experience in both state and federal appellate courts and understands how to evaluate matters from the perspectives of the bench and the bar. She also has been writing and editing legal documents – two of the most important skills for appellate attorneys – since serving as articles editor for the Northeastern University Law Review.
