Sarah F. King, partner at Clifford Law Offices, is one of Chicago’s most hard-working, intelligent medical malpractice attorneys. She works tirelessly to investigate and prepare complex medical malpractice cases for the justice of those who have been harmed due to medical negligence.
From a young age, Sarah knew that she wanted to go into the field of law, following in the footsteps of her mother, a paralegal, and throughout the years she has found her passion in the medical malpractice field.
“My mom is a paralegal. She took me to the office and court a lot. I knew I wanted to be a lawyer, although I didn’t know exactly what type of law I wanted to practice. I forced my little sister to play my witness in our reenactments of Law and Order. Even in grade school, I was drawn to fighting for the ‘underdog’ and for women’s opportunities.”
– Sarah F. King

She attended undergrad at the Loyola University of Chicago receiving a Bachelor of Arts in English and Women’s Studies.
