Overview

Sarah Sokol Clark is passionate about helping individuals and families plan for their future. Her primary practice focuses on client counseling and drafting comprehensive estate plans, including simple and complex wills and trusts, as well as powers of attorneys, medical directives, and other ancillary instruments. Sarah assists clients in a wide variety of estate planning, probate and administration, trusts, and guardianship matters.

Asset distribution is only one part of the wealth planning process.  Family structures and relationships can be complicated.  So, deciding who becomes the power of attorney, executor, guardian, or health care representative, can be stressful decisions.  Sarah’s background and training in psychology and sociology are extremely valuable as she helps clients navigate through this phase of the estate planning process.

Sarah enjoys living near the water in Taylor Lake Village with her doberman, Walter. She is captivated by midcentury modern home design and is always looking for her next renovation project. Growing up overseas for her formative years, Sarah developed an ardent appreciation for international cultures and travel. Being passionate about marine life and committed to ocean conservation, she particularly enjoys destinations with the possibility of whale watching. Sarah also enjoys photography, wandering through local art and natural science museums, and supporting her Longhorns during football season.
