Sarah Tetlow

Founder & CEO

Sarah is an experienced productivity consultant, trainer, and speaker for attorneys and other legal professionals.  She uses her past experiences, organizational and strategic thought process, education, and training to help law firms reduce their bottom line and operate more efficiently.  More importantly, attorneys see a reduction in stress and anxiety and an increase in focus and new business.  Through one-on-one consulting, strategic planning, workshops, and group trainings, Sarah works with attorneys and law firms to find personalized ways in which to manage one’s day with a proactive and focused approach.  

 

Sarah began her career in law in the early 2000’s after graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in Law & Society.   She has worked in law firms of all sizes and has stretched from legal assistant to paralegal to manager of marketing and business development.  Sarah has experienced first-hand the stresses that attorneys endure in trying to manage multiple projects.  They also have the daily necessity to react to more pressing needs in a matter of minutes, 

causing frequent mind-shifting and multi-tasking.  Sarah’s mission, and the reason for starting Firm Focus, is the desire to see a change in the industry.  To help attorneys and other legal professionals experience control over their day and mitigate the poor habits caused by the workload.

 

Through Sarah’s passion for focused work and her unique and sympathetic coaching approach, she creates a partnership with her client that warrants learning and changed behavior.  

 

Sarah is a member of the Legal Marketing Association (LMA), serving on the Local Steering Committee as Secretary (2018 – 2019) and co-chair of the Programs Committee (2019).  Additionally, Sarah is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), and the local chapter of NAPO-SFBA.  Sarah has a Workplace Productivity Specialist Certificate from NAPO.

 

Sarah enjoys work-life balance engaging in a multitude of activities outside of Firm Focus. Sarah is married to Andy, Director of Operations for a large restaurant group, and they have two sons.  She enjoys outdoor activities with her family, dancing her heart away at U-Jam Fitness®, learning, self-improvement, and watching an occasional “brainless” series on Netflix during her quadrant 4 not important / not urgent time-wasting period.
