In October, Tonkon Torp attorney Sarah Einowski spoke on a panel at the "Art of the Possible" event held at the University of Oregon. Her panel topic was on giving back to the community while in private practice. Sarah shared her experience of working with the ACLU of Oregon and with the Jefferson High School mock trial team as a way to stay connected with her community.
The day-long program, held for first year law students, featured speakers and panels focused on encouraging attorneys to embrace a personal path for their legal career. The event was a joint collaboration between the University of Oregon Women's Law Forum, Lane County Women Lawyers, the Oregon Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, the US District Court for the District of Oregon, and the University of Oregon School of Law Center for Career Planning & Professional Development.
A seasoned and experienced litigator, Sarah is a relatively recent addition to Tonkon Torp's Estate Planning Practice Group. After working as a litigation attorney on trust and fiduciary disputes, Sarah found that she enjoys working with clients at the planning and drafting stage of the process rather than just the dispute stage. She joined the Estate Planning group in 2017 and is now applying her business law background to helping clients with wills, trusts, and succession planning.
