Her prosecution career began with a small Fridley law firm as an Assistant Prosecutor where she represented the cities of Fridley and Hilltop for over eleven years. During that time, Sarah prosecuted all gross misdemeanor, misdemeanor, and petty misdemeanor cases, from gross misdemeanor domestic assaults and DWIs to minor traffic offenses, trying almost a dozen cases to a jury, hundreds of cases to a judge, and arguing several cases before the Minnesota Court of Appeals. In addition to prosecuting for Fridley and Hilltop, Sarah also represented numerous clients in the areas of criminal defense, family law, probate, and personal injury.
