Sarah T. Weitz

Ms. Weitz devotes her time to civil appellate matters and provides trial support for the firm’s litigators. She prides herself on her responsiveness to her clients’ needs and her ability to anticipate their questions regarding the appellate process. During her twelve-year career, she has handled more than one hundred appeals across Florida’s five district courts of appeal. She delivered her first oral argument before Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal as a second-year associate and fell in love with appellate law. After spending several years in civil practice at larger firms she joined Weitz & Schwartz, P.A. in 2009 and developed the firm’s appellate practice. 

Ms. Weitz graduated from Emory University School of Law in 2004. While there, she won the Douglas Lee Peabody Award for Oral Advocacy in the 2003 Emory Law Day Moot Court Competition. She obtained her B.A. in English from Boston College and spent her junior year studying literature at King’s College London.

In her personal time, Ms. Weitz is a proud volunteer with the United Way of Broward County, serving on its leadership committee for Women United and its Public Policy Advocacy Committee. In these roles, she has traveled to Tallahassee to advocate for legislation supporting children and low-income Floridians. Ms. Weitz also is a member of the 2017 Broward March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction Committee and she is a past board member of the Junior League of Broward County.
