“Sara is wonderful to work with – I highly recommend her! She walked me through the process of estate planning from start to finish, answered all my questions, and was very flexible. For something as important as estate planning, it was important to me to work with someone I trust, and I know I’m in great hands with Sara.”
“The Bennett & McClammer elder law team provided us with clear and customized guidance in estate planning, which is complicated by blended families and land conservation interests. We have very much appreciated their insight and patience.”
“I met Ken in 2014 when I needed to discuss an issue about an elderly friend. From our many conversations, we knew a guardianship would be needed. When the time came, I called Ken. He always took my calls and when I needed him he was always there. He’s knowledgeable, his voice helps you understand what’s going on and he truly cares for people. I have referred friends to Ken for their elder law needs.”
“Working with Sara has been an absolute delight. Originally she helped me with my husband’s estate. She was efficient, reasonably priced, and very caring. I really enjoyed working with her. Her assistant, Terri, also was very helpful and was available to answer any questions I had. Next, Sara helped me with my estate planning so my sons will not have to worry about matters when I die. After that, Sara handled my mother’s estate. Again, she was wonderful!! If I were to ever have any estate or probate issues, I would immediately call Sara. I feel that in addition to finding an excellent attorney, I also found a good friend.”
Born and raised in North Dakota on her parents’ 2,500 acre farm, Sara learned the value of a strong work ethic firsthand. When she wasn’t working alongside her family, she could be found enjoying anything and everything in the great outdoors, from riding horses and skiing to hunting and fishing.
Sara’s commitment to hard work continued and she graduated summa cum laude from the University of North Dakota. From there, she attended law school at Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, served as executive managing editor of the Indiana Law Review, and graduated magna cum laude. Driven by her experiences in the field and her passion to help those around her, Sara joined forces with Ken Bennett to form Bennett & McClammer LLP in 2014.
In 2015, Ken and Sara again teamed up to co-found Scout Guardianship Services, Inc., a professional fiduciary company that serves as guardian, power of attorney, trustee, and health care representative. In 2020, Scout Guardianship Services, Inc. merged with healthcare consultant Jane Malkoff and formed Scout Advocacy LLC. This new company offers a more comprehensive line of fiduciary services, healthcare consulting, and support for family fiduciaries.
Sara is admitted to practice law in the state of Indiana. She is a member of the Indianapolis Bar Association and is active in its Estate Planning Section. Sara is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association, a 2015 graduate of its Leadership Development Academy and further serves as Chair-Elect of the Young Lawyers Section. She is also a member of the National Guardianship Association and the Indiana State Guardianship Association.
Living in Indianapolis with their two Boston Terriers, Sara and her husband, Kyle, have two boys, Maxwell (age 3) and George (age 1). In her free time, Sara loves getting outside for a run, reading a good fiction book, or listening to a true crime podcast.
