Sarah E. Uhrik
Sarah E. Uhrik is a Central Florida native, born and raised in Lake County, Florida. Sarah earned her Bachelor of Arts in 2010 from the University of South Florida and her Juris Doctor in 2014 from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. Sarah was admitted to the Illinois Bar and the Northern District of Illinois Bar in 2014. After law school, Sarah worked at the boutique law firm of Wolf & Tennant in downtown Chicago. There, Sarah’s practice focused on estate planning, not-for-profit tax planning, and various aspects of corporate law, including mergers and acquisitions. During that time Sarah realized each area of her practice presented its own unique tax consequences requiring proper planning and implementation. That realization inspired her to pursue advanced studies in taxation and she earned her Master of Laws (LL.M.) in taxation, with honors, in 2016. Sarah concentrated her tax studies in two fields: wealth management, transfer and succession for high net-worth clients, as well as for-profit and not-for-profit tax planning.
Sarah was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2017 and joined the estate planning team at the Lake Sumter Landing Office of McLin Burnsed in March of 2018. Sarah’s primary areas of focus are estate planning, corporate planning, and not-for-profit tax advice.
