5 minutes to read

The EVOLVE Summit is set to be the largest virtual event the legal industry has ever seen. With over 5,000 of the nation’s most ambitious law firm owners, industry experts, market leaders, and their teams in attendance — this will be an event you don’t want to miss.

If you thought this would be your typical, run-of-the-mill Zoom meeting — think again. The EVOLVE Summit will bring you an experience like no other, combining presentations and panel discussions with interactive breakout sessions, networking possibilities, and MORE to help you evolve your law firm and ultimately become the attorney you were meant to be.

Kicking off on June 24-25, this highly anticipated event brings together a star-studded lineup of incredible speakers who are bound to challenge, inspire, and motivate you and your team.

The newest speaker to join that squad is trial attorney and adjunct professor Sara Williams.

“The idea that female professionals are not confident is a myth.”


Who is Sara Williams?

Sara Williams is changing the game for women everywhere in the legal industry. Born and raised in Florida, she attended law school at Cumberland Law, where she discovered her passion for being a trial attorney.

Upon graduating, she worked as a defense attorney at a couple of different firms, but it wasn’t until she met attorney Alexander Shunnarah that she found where she truly belonged.

Since 2013, Sara has been practicing law alongside the seasoned industry leader at Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys. In this role, she has litigated a variety of cases across the State of Alabama, including premises liability, motor vehicle negligence, wrongful death, and trucking cases.

Not only does Sara have an incredible track record in the courtroom, but she is also an adjunct professor of Trial Advocacy at Cumberland School of Law and serves as a coach for Cumberland School of Law’s nationally ranked mock trial teams.

Crisp Founder & CEO Michael Mogill sat down with Sara recently for an episode of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast, during which this game changer shared how she’s challenging the norms of the legal industry, how she consistently carries herself with authenticity in the courtroom and classroom, and why the quickest way to lose a unique ability is by hiding it.

You can listen to the episode here to get a sneak preview of the insights Sara has to offer. She explores questions like:

  • Why do you need to be authentic to reach your maximum potential?
  • How did Sara Williams go from aspiring sports agent to top dog at Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys?
  • Why does the legal industry still have a long way to go to be truly diverse?
  • How can “being yourself” help you in front of a jury?


What Sara Williams Will Bring to the EVOLVE Summit Stage

Not only is Sara a badass trial attorney, but she’s also an advocate for women and people of color in the legal industry.

Her experience as a Black woman practicing law in the Deep South has given her a unique perspective on the hurdles she and others have to overcome to be on the same playing field as the rest of her peers in the legal industry.

When she takes the stage at the EVOLVE Summit, you’ll get to hear firsthand how this incredible woman is blazing trails and teaching women how to put their best foot forward for success in their careers.

Sara knows what it takes to excel in the legal field, and she wants to help you do the same, so come hungry and ready to absorb the expertise she has gained throughout her decorated, successful career.
