“What a powerful article,” commented Lincoln Derr Attorney, Maria Ortiz. “You are brilliant, strong, brave, humble and kind. So proud to work for you.” While her impacts are evident among female colleagues, another Lincoln Derr Attorney, Kevin Pratt also noted, in reflection on Sara’s many experiences, that there is “Much to learn from you!”
