Sarah Naughton

*Currently on leave*


Sarah is an Associate in our Litigation group. She provides her clients with strong advocacy both at trial and in alternative dispute resolution.

Sarah attended Georgia State University in 2011 where she was a Division 1 cross-country and track and field distance runner. Upon graduation, she moved back to Canada to pursue studies in law at Queen’s University. She obtained her J.D. from Queen’s University where she was an active member of Pro Bono Students Canada as a Project Lead and a Case Worker at the Queen’s Law Clinic. In addition to her studies, Sarah worked as a Student Intern with a trial firm in Greater Atlanta with a focus on civil and criminal litigation. Following law school, she articled at a law firm in downtown Toronto specializing in personal injury, medical malpractice and commercial litigation.

Sarah’s background as part of a Canadian military family brought her to Germany and the USA before she happily returned to Kingston to start her legal career. She and her husband Michael, who works at Queen’s University as part of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group, now proudly call Kingston home. Her commitment to the community allows her to understand the unique needs of this area. Today, Sarah supports clients in the following matters:

  • Contract and shareholder disputes
  • Real estate and commercial real estate litigation
  • Insurance disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Construction matters and liens
  • Personal injury matters
  • Defamation

When she is not at work, Sarah can be found running and enjoying the beautiful scenic areas in and around Kingston.
