Clients, usually creditors such as banks and financial institutions, come to Sara Michaloski to zealously represent their interests and secure their claims in various bankruptcy estates. She also litigates corporate matters outside of bankruptcy that involve contract disputes, letters of credit, lines of credit and loan documents.
An associate in the firm’s Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group at Shulman Rogers, Sara previously served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Laura S. Kiessling, Administrative Judge of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County in Annapolis, Maryland. While clerking, Sara learned what it takes to be a persuasive and effective advocate for clients. She worked extensively on complex cases at every stage of litigation, including confessed judgments, multi-state garnishment actions and exceptions to foreclosures.
Sara obtained her Juris Doctor in 2014 from Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, where she was Lead Articles Editor of the Catholic University Law Review. During law school, she interned with the Department of Justice, the State’s Attorney’s Office for Montgomery County and for the Honorable Marcus D. Williams of the Circuit Court for Fairfax County. Upon graduation, Sara was awarded “High Honors” for her pro bono service to the community.
