Sarah Stula is an associate with Foulston’s litigation and employment practice group in the firm’s Kansas City office. Her practice includes employment disputes, commercial litigation, governmental liability, and appellate advocacy. 

Sarah is a litigator at heart and enjoys advocating for her clients in trial and appellate courts. She defends public and private employers from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims and reviews company policies for compliance with state and federal laws. She advises employers on a wide range of employment matters and contributes to several employment law publications. Sarah also litigates disputes involving commercial contracts and post-employment covenants.

Born and raised in Overland Park, Sarah is a proud Kansan and lifelong KU fan. When she’s not cheering on the Jayhawks, you can find her walking her dog at Shawnee Mission Park.
