Sarah Potter, Esq.

Sarah Potter has devoted her education and legal career to criminal defense practice. Her first experience with criminal defense was in high school as an intern in the Mendocino County Public Defender's Office.  This experience is what first inspired Sarah to pursue a career in criminal defense.  From that point forward, she devoted her studies to trial advocacy and criminal defense.


Sarah attended Claremont McKenna College and was an active member of the Mock Trial team throughout her time there.  She graduated with a BA in Psychology and Legal Studies in 2008.  Sarah went on to attend the University of California, Hastings College of the Law where she focused her studies on criminal law and practice. While at Hastings, Sarah spent two years clerking for the Federal Public Defender and gained invaluable experience in federal criminal practice.  She was also a member of the Hastings Trial Team and consistently ranked at the top in trial advocacy competitions. During her third year of law school, Sarah received the Roger and Carol Dreyer Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy.  Sarah graduated and was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2011.


Prior to starting her own practice, Sarah worked with a private criminal defense attorney in San Francisco on both state and federal matters.
