Associate
  • Sarah Kissel Meier is an Associate Attorney for Slater Slater Schulman advocating for survivors of sexual abuse. Sarah’s previous experience representing clients affected by trauma allows her to zealously fight for survivors of both child and sexual abuse alike.

    Sarah adopts an empathetic, trauma-informed, and client-centered approach with her clients. She strives to understand each survivor’s unique circumstances and concerns to create a supportive environment.

    Prior to joining Slater Slater Schulman, Sarah served as a Deputy District Attorney for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office—where she was selected to be a member of the Victim Impact Unit. She conducted jury trials in this role and managed a caseload of child sexual abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, and violent felony matters, with a specialized focus on gang violence targeting homosexual men. Additionally, Sarah served as an attorney at the Children’s Law Center of California, representing minors who were survivors of child abuse, child neglect, and sexual abuse in the context of commercial sexual exploitation.

    Sarah was a former volunteer facilitator with Project LEAD from 2019 to 2023, helping to educate inner-city students on the legal and social consequences of juvenile crimes. As a facilitator, Sarah taught a 20-week curriculum to fifth-grade classes centered on techniques for resisting peer pressure, gang violence, and illicit drug use. She remains a mentor to many of her former students today.

    Sarah received her B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from the University of California, Irvine before obtaining her J.D. from Southwestern Law School. She joined the firm in August 2023 and is licensed to practice in California.
