Sarah Kline

Sarah Kline joined McDonald Sanders in the fall of 2018 after graduating from the Texas Tech School of Law and moving to Fort Worth. She supports several other attorneys with their cases and matters while also working on developing her own practice areas, such as business transactions and organization, commercial litigation, employment law, and others. Sarah loves attacking problems and finding solutions for her clients. She enjoys researching, both to the benefit of her clients and her fellow attorneys, but also because she likes learning something new every day.

Before heading west to Lubbock for graduate school, Sarah came to Fort Worth to attend TCU for her undergraduate degrees. She originally hails from Paradise, a small city northwest of DFW. Now back in the area and living downtown, Sarah takes full advantage of the wonders of Fort Worth, including walking through Trinity Park and shopping at Trader Joe’s. Of course, as a TCU and Texas Tech grad, Sarah also keeps up with college football, but also loves to read for fun, camp, and hike.
