Jewell was chosen to receive the award for demonstrating the skills, ethics, and dedication to advancing and protecting the rights of individuals and the American Justice System.
“If every young lawyer had Sarah’s drive, ability to problem solve, and her passion for the legal system, our world would be a better place. She’s incredibly deserving of this award. We’re grateful to have Sarah on our team,” says Carter C. Stein, managing partner of McMath Woods P.A.
