Sarah Cocchiola

Litigation Paralegal

You’ve always had the power…[You] just had to learn it for [your]self.
Glinda, The Wizard of Oz


Sarah can take a case from intake to trial without breaking a sweat. She’s so good at her job that she was promoted by her first employer before she even completed her paralegal certificate. Sarah joined our team in 2018 with an impressive background as a personal injury paralegal for both large and small firms.

We asked Sarah what she enjoys about her career. She said, “Knowing every task I perform, big or small, brings our clients closer to justice. I love helping and knowing I’ve made a difference for them.” If you are one of our clients, chances are good you’ll speak with Sarah at some point. We think you’ll enjoy working with her as much as we do.

When she’s not working hard for our clients, Sarah’s probably going on adventures with her two young sons, which can mean anything from hiking to taking museum trips. She loves to read, cook, and spend time with her enormous family. Oh, and she’s flown an airplane. Twice.


Sarah obtained her Paralegal Certificate from Branford Hall Career Institute, where she graduated with a 3.92 GPA. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Post University where she majored in Legal Studies.
