Sarah Bond Dorger grew up in Mobile, Alabama, graduating from Mobile County Public Schools.  She attended Spring Hill College, where she earned academic scholarships and graduated with a B.A. in English, magna cum laude.  From there, Sarah earned her Juris Doctorate from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center of Louisiana State University.  She returned to Mobile and began practicing law with different small firms, learning personal injury and wrongful death claims, business and shareholder disputes, breach of contract and fraud cases, and nursing home malpractice cases.  Along the way, Sarah has built a quality reputation among her peers and in front of the Judges before whom she practices.  Sarah has earned an AV Rating from the prestigious Martindale Hubbel Firm, with an AV rating being the highest a lawyer can earn in both ethics and legal ability.  Sarah believes in tough yet effective representation and maximizing resources to achieve the client's desired outcome.  Not every case is the same, nor are every two clients alike.  Litigation can be costly, draining valuable employee time and energy and tearing families apart while it is ongoing.  However, sometimes it is necessary because parties are left with no choice but to pursue justice for themselves, their loved ones, or the business they have worked so hard to build.  
 
Sarah is married to Scot Dorger, and they have two children.  Sarah spends much of her free time watching her children play sports, from baseball, basketball, volleyball, softball, to swim meets.  She also enjoys regular exercise and remaining active.  Sarah regularly volunteers in her community and also tries to provide many pro bono hours of service back to individuals who cannot afford to hire a lawyer.  When she does get free time, you will find Sarah near the water, enjoying the beautiful Gulf Coast as much as possible.
