Sarah J. Knapp | Divorce Attorney in Northern Virginia

Sarah J. Knapp joined ShounBach in 2013 after serving for two years as the judicial law clerk for the Honorable William D. Hamblen (Ret.) of the Prince William County Circuit Court. During her tenure Judge Hamblen retired, and she had the pleasure of working with numerous retired Judges from across the Commonwealth before serving as Judge Carroll A. Weimer's first law clerk.

Additionally, it confirmed for Ms. Knapp the belief that resolving family law matters outside of court most often results in the best outcome.

Ms. Knapp graduated in 2011 in the top third of her class from George Mason University School of Law. During law school, she interned with the Honorable Leslie Alden of Fairfax County Circuit Court and Condo, Kelly & Byrnes, P.C., in McLean, Virginia. She also represented clients in uncontested divorce matters through the George Mason University Domestic Relations Legal Clinic.

She received her bachelor's degree, magna cum laude with double majors in Political Science and Communications, from Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. Prior to law school, she worked for six years in public and media relations for Roger Williams University's Office of Public Affairs.
