Biography

Sarah A. Milunski practices in the Firm’s Litigation Department. She is an experienced litigator handling cases involving Missouri’s Franchise Act, consumer protection statutes, contract and property disputes, municipal litigation, and personal injury in both federal and state courts in Missouri and Illinois. Sarah regularly develops the case strategies and legal arguments that are relied upon at trial in some of the Firm's most complex cases. No stranger to the courtroom, her recent trials have involved breach of contract and municipal law, both of which resulted in positive outcomes for her clients. Sarah’s subject-matter knowledge runs deep for every case she takes on; not only does she utilize available resources to thoroughly understand the legal issue at hand, she also familiarizes herself with her clients’ business so she can provide thoughtful and practical advice that is focused on each client’s individual goals. Whether in the courtroom advocating or in the office counseling, Sarah brings a focus and passion to bear to give sound advice and achieve outstanding results for her clients.

Sarah is a member of the Firm’s Recruiting Committee. She was selected for inclusion in Missouri & Kansas Rising Stars® in 2018-2020 as well as was in Best Lawyers® Ones to Watch for 2021.
