Partner Biography

Sarah Miranda is a proud Fayetteville native, and graduated from Southview High School in Hope Mills before attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in Political Science.  Sarah is also a cum laude graduate of Regent University School of Law.  She is admitted both to the Virginia (1999) and North Carolina (2000) state bars.  While she also practices in the areas of civil litigation and creditor’s rights, her focus and passion is in the area of family law. Sarah has experienced divorce first hand, both as a child and as an adult, and as a result feels she has a greater understanding of what her clients and their children are going through.  Her personal experiences are an asset that allow her to be a compassionate but level-headed advocate for her clients.

Sarah is devoted to investing in her community as well.  She is a past president and board member of the Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity, sits on the Eastern Carolina Advisory Board for Lawyer’s Mutual Insurance, and is an active member of the Cumberland County Bar Association and Manna Church, where she attends.
