Holland & Hart attorney Sara Berry has been appointed by the Supreme Court of the State of Idaho to serve as a member of the Civil Rules Advisory Committee. Sara, whose term will end in 2024, joins a select group of federal judges, state district justices, and practicing attorneys with expertise and experience navigating Idaho’s civil rules and regulations. The Civil Rules Advisory Committee reviews and recommends amendments to Idaho’s Rules of Civil Procedure.
In her practice, Sara assists clients in negotiating out of problem situations on appeal, during litigation, and before litigation starts. She represents clients in state and federal courts, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Idaho Supreme Court. She has shaped her practice to provide the appellate perspective during trial in order to preserve issues and present a fully developed trial record on appeal. Sara assists local and national clients of all sizes, focusing on complex civil litigation and appeals, including disputes arising from contracts, eminent domain, property use, and products liability.
Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Sara served as a law clerk to Judge Stephen S. Trott of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and for Judge Sergio Gutierrez of the Idaho Court of Appeals before entering private practice.
