Attorney Spotlight: Sarah Hart Charette

Attorney and Partner, Sarah Charette’s commitment to helping others and her attention to detail make her a valuable asset to the firm’s Litigation Group.  Sarah joined Gross McGinley in 2016 after serving in the District Attorneys’ offices in both Berks and Lebanon Counties.  Sarah’s significant litigation experience has enabled her to hone her skills in the courtroom.  She works tirelessly representing the firm’s clients in Medical Malpractice and is the Chair of the firm’s Criminal Law Group. However, Sarah will tell you she does not do it alone. She takes pride in the people and team dynamic of the firm supporting each other from inception to completion in all defense matters. It’s helping people that Sarah enjoys most about being an attorney.

Sarah’s commitment to the community is just as strong.  She has served as an Emmaus Main Street Alliance member and an Emmaus Public Library board member. Sarah serves as the Treasurer for the Bar Association of Lehigh County.

As a strong voice behind Gross McGinley’s Summer Associate Program, Sarah finds it important to mentor summer associates at the firm. Her advice to would-be attorneys is to expose yourself to all areas of the law to truly find your passion. Sarah uses her mentoring to teach skills not often taught in law school, such as how to read a judge and jury. Her experience in the courtroom is what has truly taught her to be a successful litigator.

Balancing her work and home life is Sarah’s true success. A wife and mother of two, Sarah manages to make time for family through communication and teamwork with her husband, Ken, who is also a successful attorney. Inspired by her parents, mom, a teacher, and dad, a hospital administrator for 40 years, Sarah is a dedicated professional who seeks victory and success at every opportunity.
