Sara Williams currently practices at Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, where she handles primarily trucking, wrongful death and catastrophic injury litigation. Sara has collected over $30 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of her clients, including a $12 million dollar verdict against the Birmingham Max Bus system arising out of a collision caused by that transit system’s failure to properly monitor the health of its drivers resulting in a driver passing out while driving a bus.
From 2017 through the close of 2021 she served as the managing attorney for the firm. During that time the firm would grow to include over 100 attorneys and over 400 staff members in offices in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Massachusetts.
Prior to joining the Alexander Shunnarah firm, Sara spent the first half of her career defending trucking companies and drivers. She has recently returned to a more active practice after spending the last three years as the firm’s managing attorney, during which time the firm grew to over 65 lawyers and over 300 employees with offices in nine states.
In 2021 Sara decided to step away from her role as managing attorney to re-focus on her litigation practice and developing a social media campaign focused on empowering women lawyers.
Sara is an adjunct professor of Trial Advocacy at Cumberland School of Law where she teaches Advanced Skills in Trial Advocacy-Civil and Depositions and Technology. She is a 2003 graduate of Florida State University and a 2006 graduate of Cumberland School of Law.
