For more than a decade, Sara Gross has been making a difference at the Baltimore City Department of Law.
Beginning in April 2012, she joined the department as an assistant solicitor working in the position for five years before becoming chief solicitor from 2017 to 2020. In December 2020, she was named chief of the Affirmative Litigation Division.
“Sara is a phenomenal attorney who not only mentors younger and newer lawyers, but also zealously advocates for her client, the city of Baltimore,” said Hanna Marie Sheehan, chief solicitor for the city.
Before her time at the Baltimore City Department of Law, Gross was a Baltimore City assistant state’s attorney for nearly seven years in the general felony division and also served as law clerk to the Honorable Carol E. Smith of the Baltimore City Circuit Court.
She earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and a bachelor’s degree in political science and communications from Indiana University Bloomington.
An advocate for pro bono work, Gross donates her time and legal expertise to the Maryland Pro Bono Resource Center working on estate planning cases.
Last year, the Public Rights Project named her an Affirmative Leader Fellow. She was named the 2015 Government and Public Interest Lawyer of the Year by the Bar Association for Baltimore City.
