Sara Schramm is a skilled personal injury attorney and valuable member of the Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C. team. Her legal practice focuses on products liability and mass tort litigation with extensive experience in federal Multi-District Litigation.
Sara is currently appointed by Judge M. Casey Rodgers in the Northern District of Florida to plaintiff leadership on the 3M Combat Arms Earplug Litigation in federal Multi-District Litigation and she serves on the Early Vetting Subcommittee on behalf of her clients and all clients nationwide.
At the firm, Sara spends much of her time working directly with clients in a one-on-one setting. She uses her time with clients to gain a better understanding of their unique circumstances which, in turn, allows her to develop a personalized plan of action for each individual. With more than two decades of legal experience, including time spent on both the defense and plaintiff’s side of personal injury cases, Sara is committed to working towards maximum recovery on behalf of each of her clients.
Locally, Sara is the incoming Chair of the Board of the Athens Area Community Foundation, an organization that fosters strategic philanthropy and shapes responses to community needs through collaboration, including special initiatives related to Covid-19 community response. She is also past President of the Western Circuit Bar Association.
Nationally, Sara is an active member of the American Association of Justice (“AAJ”) and was appointed to a leadership role in 2020 in the AAJ Women Trial Lawyers Caucus where she is involved in outreach efforts with a goal of increasing the membership levels of women in the organization, as women comprise only 20% of the overall membership. The organization is key to defending Americans’ right to trial by jury and protection of clients’ rights and the integrity of the civil justice system.
In her free time, Sara enjoys spending time with her family horseback riding and bicycling.
