Sarah Bootes Shattuck

Sole Practitioner
Ashland, Kansas

My roots are planted deep in Southwest Kansas. My Grandparents began ranching in Clark County in 1892, a calling that was continued by my Grandfather and Uncle. My father began practicing law in Ashland in 1946. My early childhood years were spent in his office after school or at the Courthouse with my Grandfather, who by then had been elected County Judge.

So, it was natural that following law school and a couple of years working for a law book publishing company in Washington D.C., I would return to continue my father's practice.

Over the past thirty years the law has changed, through new laws and new technologies, but my love for this place and its people has only deepened.

Although I never married and had children, friends old and new have shared their families with me and my companion, a goofy lab named (not very originally) Chocolate. I have served the community through church, boards and organizations.

In 2009 I opened a branch office in Greensburg, Kansas, because I wanted to be part of its re-creation after the 2007 tornado destroyed most of the town. The friends I have made have blessed me beyond any expectation and re-affirmed that Southwest Kansas is a wonderful place to live.
