Sara Ahern Sawyer

Sara Sawyer is Northwest Debt Relief Law Firm’s Legal Assistant and Office Manager. Over the past five years, Sara has helped hundreds of Seattle Washington area families get out of debt and obtain a fresh start on life both through bankruptcy and debt defense cases in Federal and State Courts.

Sara helps our Seattle and Tacoma area clients gather the information for their bankruptcy cases and help them in the process of identifying their creditors. When clients come into the office, Sara goes through their income to get their file ready for their meeting with the attorney that day. After their cases are filed, Sara is responsible for making sure the clients gather up and provide the new documents that the Seattle and Tacoma bankruptcy courts require for their hearings which they will attend with one of our bankruptcy attorneys.

Sara lives in Washington, with her partner, their kid and a Siamese cat. She enjoys reading mystery novels, being outdoors in the Pacific Northwest, and making arts and crafts.
