Meet Sarah Weaver
All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!
Sarah believes in a healthy mind, body and soul. She has a keen interest in healthy cooking and enjoys participating in regular social sport. She’s also a big fan of travel and trialling new restaurants.
Sarah’s first formal legal position also happened to be as a founding member of our firm. Together with Donna, Sarah started at the practice from the very first day the practice opened. Her early focus was on wills and estates matters and other litigation files.
She then joined the accident and compensation team and has remained a key ingredient in the success of the practice as a whole.
Sarah had early exposure to the law undertaking voluntary work experience. The experience she gained at that time was in the commercial and contract areas of the law though and nearly drove her away to another career. Not all aspects are the law are for everyone. Fortunately for us all, she persisted and found a renewed passion when working with people directly in the areas of family law and wills. She was then determined to study law and enter the profession.
Development of Career
While continuing to work full-time, Sarah studied a dual Bachelor of Business and Law at QUT. She then completed her formal Legal Practical Training before she was admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court of Queensland.
She is compassionate of people in need and will go out of her way to assist anyone she can. But don’t let her good nature and warmth fool you: beneath that Sarah also possess a real grit and determination. If there’s an injustice or other hurdle in the way of getting a fair outcome for her clients she won’t stop until things are made right. In her earlier years Sarah was a water polo player (at a high representative level) but her aspirations were cut short through injury. It’s perhaps not unsurprising then that you find in Sarah a person who is highly focused and competitive when needed but also compassionate and very much a great team player and support person.
