We Fight For What Is Yours


Sara R. Carroll

Attorney, Partner 

Sara has been a partner at Kerr Robichaux & Carroll since 2018. Sara's down-to-earth nature and work ethic are two of her strongest strengths. She utilizes them to help people in their time of need. Understanding the rules is just as essential to Sara as knowing how to use them to her clients’ advantage. She has a knack for making the complex regulations of Social Security work for her clients.

She enjoys questioning Social Security's so-called "experts" at hearings. She holds them accountable by ensuring that they are familiar with her clients' medical history and giving realistic testimony.

Having the opportunity to meet so many inspirational clients is the key to her personal success. Sara defends every client that walks through the door as if they were her own family. Their experiences motivate her to keep fighting, since Social Security benefits may mean the difference between life and death for many people.

My job is to make sure the judge knows more about your case than just what is on paper. They will know who you are and what you have been through. Most importantly, I will present them with a clear path to awarding you benefits.
