Attorney McCain has made Florida her home since 2021. While she is new to the state, she has years of valuable family law experience behind her. Sarah started her legal career in Colorado, in 2007, as an associate attorney for our Colorado, sister firm, Plog & Stein, P.C. Upon passing the Colorado bar in 2007, she immediately began helping people as a family law attorney. Now in her second decade of practice, she has proven to be an invaluable asset to her clients.
Sarah McCain was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan. She attended Michigan State University for her undergraduate and law degrees, obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Management from the Broad College of Business and her Juris Doctorate Degree from the University’s College of Law. During law school, she worked at Legal Services of South Central Michigan, focusing on domestic violence cases, and at the Eaton County Prosecutor’s Office.
Before delving into practice in both Florida and Colorado, Sarah was determined to work as an attorney in Michigan. She passed the Michigan bar exam in 2006. After a visit to Colorado, she decided it was time for a change of scenery and headed out west. Initially working as a family law paralegal while she studied for the Colorado bar, Sarah became familiar with divorce and child custody cases. By 2007, she started building her caseload in the courts throughout the Denver metropolitan area. Now also licensed in Florida, Sarah is one of three Family Law Advocates attorneys licensed in multiple states.
During the week, Sarah enjoys helping her clients resolve their family law issues. Her weekends are devoted to her family. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys kid activities, anything beach related, and exploring Florida. She also loves watching Big Ten football and basketball (and cheering for her Michigan State Spartans). She’s also committed to embracing the Buccaneers, though it may take her a while.
