Sarah Conohan studied at Humber College and has been with McLeish Orlando for 5 years. Before entering the legal field, Sarah was a support worker with the City of Toronto Adapted and Integrated Services Section. There, she worked directly with children and adults with physical and mental disabilities and saw firsthand how disabilities and impairments can impact a life. Seeing these individuals in such a compromised and vulnerable state inspired her to pursue a career in personal injury as she wanted an opportunity to make a difference.
Her most rewarding experience in law came after gearing up for a trial for a client who had sustained a spinal injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident. The client’s life had been significantly altered from the accident and would never be the same. Leading up to the week before trial, McLeish Orlando were able to reach a resolution. The client was extremely pleased with the result which made all of the work she put in that much more worth it.
In her free time Sarah enjoys going for runs and walks, cooking, and spending time with her family. Her hobbies help keep her happy and focused on the positive things in life. She believes they are almost like a form of meditation. Sarah has participated in walks and runs for several different charities and organizations, namely the Brain Injury Association Niagara and the BIST run. She also volunteers and regularly donates to her local food drivers and occasionally volunteers at the Toronto Humane Society.
