Sarah Watchko, J.D.

Estate Planning Advisor

Sarah developed a passion for working with aging and special needs clients at Wake Forest University School of Law’s Elder Law Clinic during the summer of 2007. This led her to the discovery of a career in estate planning, special needs planning, and elder law that could provide both intellectually demanding work and the opportunity to serve and improve the lives of others. Sarah finds immense joy in providing not only a high level of service, but a calm and comforting demeanor to those navigating life’s challenges.

An Atlanta native, Sarah lives in Roswell with her husband Jeff, son Will, daughter Emma Claire, and their loving mutt Hank. She and her brother William attended Marist School in Atlanta, and her husband attended Roswell High School. Both her brother and husband were collegiate athletes at Georgia Tech who went on to play professionally (the former football and the latter, baseball). Both families remain avid Georgia Tech fans.

Sarah loves reading, spending time with friends and family, staying active, travel, and—in her rare free time—squeezing in a craft or baking project.
