Chicago, IL, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Sarah F. King has been named a partner at Clifford Law Offices, a nationally recognized law firm specializing in personal injury and wrongful death in Chicago. King, who has been with the firm since 2011, has obtained many important judgments and settlements, particularly in the area of medical liability law for women and children.
Most recently, King served on the medical malpractice attorney team that won a record $ 101 million conviction on behalf of a boy who suffered brain damage at birth when his external fetal monitoring strips were ignored for six hours. Also in 2019, she received a severance payment of 22.9 million medical service providers to diagnose and treat bleeding due to a placenta rupture.
King obtained a $ 14 million judgment in 2014 against the prescriber on behalf of a 37-year-old Chicago woman who suffered a major stroke 13 days after taking the contraceptive Yasmin, a verdict that caught national attention. In 2013, she received a judgment in the Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of the husband of a woman who died in childbirth after the defendants failed to diagnose and properly treat her for a high-risk complication.
“Sarah’s work ethic and commitment to her clients are admirable,” said Robert A. Clifford, Founder and Senior Partner of Clifford Law Offices. “She gets to know her customers, medicine, the facts and then gets what is just and just for everyone. She even takes time to give back to the community in many ways, especially by mentoring young lawyers. She is a role model for everyone. “
King currently serves as President of the Board of Directors of Women Everywhere: Partners in Service Project, a nonprofit composed of attorneys and judges dedicated to creating opportunity for women through education and community service. For several years she has helped the organization raise funds for its scholarship project, which awards two to five scholarships to high school girls pursuing careers in law.
She also co-founded the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association’s Women’s Caucus, where she recently returned from a trip to Springfield, IL to meet with various elected leaders including Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan and Illinois Senate President Don Harmon.
