sarah-boycePractice Areas: Criminal defense, post-conviction, family law

Law School: Saint Louis University

While she worked with at-risk, inner-city students in Chicago during her undergraduate years of college, Sarah Boyce felt the pull to go to law school.

“Recognizing the legal hardships that they often faced inspired me to get into criminal defense,” she said. “Those students taught me the value and power of second chances.”

She said her favorite moment as an attorney came last year in the case of a criminal defense client who faced 15 years imprisonment in the Missouri Department of Corrections if convicted.

“Seeing him reunited with his family after securing his acquittal was incredibly rewarding,” she said.

If you hadn’t become a lawyer, what profession would you have chosen?

Teacher for at-risk high school students.

What is the best career advice you have received?

What is something that would surprise people about you?

I’m a sergeant in the U.S. Army Reserves.
