Sarah Anne Mourer, Esq. has over 25 years litigation and trial experience. She has tried hundreds of criminal felony and misdemeanor trials, both State and Federal. Since her first days as a law student, Sarah knew she wanted to be in court and fight for justice.

As the former Director and Founder of The University of Miami School of Law’s Innocence Clinic, Sarah represented up to 1500 clients during their post-conviction proceedings while supervising students. The Clinic is the only law school clinic in Florida to be accepted into the National Network of Innocence Projects; in fact it was admitted during its first year of operation. In addition, Sarah founded and developed the State’s only law school Death Penalty Clinic. In this capacity, Sarah, along with community attorneys and her students represented individuals facing the death penalty. During her time at the Death Penalty Clinic no client received the death penalty.
During Sarah’s time as a law professor she taught a wide range of doctrinal and clinical courses. As a result, Sarah possesses extensive legal knowledge both state and federal. Additionally, for the past 20 years Sarah has taught trials skills. She became a certified trial instructor with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy in which she taught trial skills to seasoned attorneys. Sarah was a training attorney at the Dade County Public Defender’s Office, coached Miami Law’s Trial Team, and taught all of Miami Law’s trial skills programs including directing its nationally acclaimed Litigation Skills Program.
