Navigating the legal world can be intimidating; I ensure my clients receive the attention, advocacy skills, and quality legal advice necessary to successfully move forward.
Sarah J. Hink
Sarah J. Hink is a partner of New Direction Family Law and has practiced family law exclusively since being licensed by the North Carolina Bar.
Sarah was drawn to the practice of family law because it allows her to make a real difference in the lives of her clients during an emotional and stressful period in their lives. Sarah believes that litigation should not be driven by the emotions of attorneys or clients, and separating the legal process from the healing process helps keep legal fees and stress levels low. Sarah’s knowledge of the law, emphasis on communication, and her ability to empathize with clients while remaining calm, poised, and pragmatic serves her well in advocating for their best interests in both settlement negotiations and in court. A zealous advocate, Sarah ensures her clients find the stability and security needed to move forward in a positive direction. Being part of this healing process is the most rewarding aspect of her practice. Sarah continues to raise the bar in the practice of family law with her dedication to her clients, professionalism, and advocacy skills both in and out of the court room.
Sarah earned her Bachelor’s degree from Appalachian State University. After working in the legal field for two years following undergrad, Sarah was accepted at Campbell University School of Law. While at Campbell, Sarah participated in Wills for Heroes, a program which provides free estate planning documents for first responders, as well as the 50B Project, a joint effort with Legal Aid providing representation, under the supervision of licensed attorneys, for victims of domestic violence. Sarah still volunteers with the Legal Aid 50B project, now as an advisor to students. Sarah is a member of the Tenth Judicial District Bar, North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys traveling to North Carolina’s mountains to visit her alma mater and to spend time hiking the blue ridge mountains. However, the majority of her trips are to North Carolina’s coast where, if the weather is right, you can find her fishing offshore with her father or catching a sunset in Beaufort on the dock. As a native of Raleigh, Sarah is a strong advocate of supporting local businesses and charity organizations located in the triangle area, especially those like the SPCA of Wake County where she found her dog Rosy.
