Sabine was born and raised in New Jersey. She joined McAllister Olivarius as an Associate in 2020 and works on a range of US matters, including Title IX, employment discrimination, sexual assault and harassment. She is also a member of our ConsentLawyers team, where she helps people whose reputations have been attacked online.

Sabine received her BA in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2019. While in law school, she was designated a Mead Fellow for her work exploring global human rights issues at the International Development Law Organization in Rome. She was also a student representative in the Transnational Legal Clinic, where she represented individuals seeking asylum in the United States. Sabine conducted independent research that explored gender-based legal barriers to identification in Nigeria, which culminated in a final report that was submitted as a working paper to the World Bank. Following law school, she worked at an international human rights charity, where she defended vulnerable populations who were victims of state sponsored human rights abuses.

Outside of the office, Sabine enjoys walking in nature, exercising, reading, going to restaurants, traveling, volunteering, and listening to a variety of podcasts.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Dr Celeste Kidd, Aslin et al v. University of Rochester et al

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

AOA client, confidential

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.

I would like to say from bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you to all the team. Now I can go and forget my former employer. God bless you all.
