Sarah N. Swatosh

Sarah N. Swatosh joined Sedey Harper Westhoff as a partner in 2020. Sarah focuses her practice on employment, wrongful termination and labor law. For the past five years, Sarah has exclusively represented employees, first at her own law firm and now at Sedey Harper Westhoff. Before opening the firm, Sarah practiced law at the largest international employment defense law firm. Since then, she has recovered millions of dollars for employees who have lost their jobs and suffered harassment on the job.

After serving as a management-side employment lawyer for nearly a decade, Sarah understands the many ways that defense attorneys may attack employment law claims, as well as conceal the weaknesses in employers’ cases. In short, the insight Sarah has learned about how companies value employees’ claims is an invaluable asset to you in your pursuit of justice.
