Sara Doyle is our 5th Court of Appeals candidate interviewed. After 4, I was concerned that it was going to sound like “been there, done that.” It was nothing of the kind and I encourage everyone to listen and not assume you have already heard it just because you listened to some other interview.
Sara went to law school at my alma mater, Mercer, and has been practicing law for about 15 years. Currently, she is a partner with Knight & Holland, one of those big, international firms, but she began her careet in a small 8-man firm in Atlanta that did what most small firms do: a variety of this and that. When the small law firm merged with Knight & Holland, Sara was on her way. Her focus is in civil litigation and education law. Education law? I remember when there wasn’t any such thing!
Sara must be doing something right. She has been recognized as one of the top female lawyers in Georgia. I asked Sara about this rather sexist accolade. I mean I don’t know what being female or male has to do with being a good lawyer. I suspect that Sara is one of the best, male and female. Anyway, Sara was gracious in not making this a big deal. A real life example of a judicial temperament.
