Sarah E. Bolling, Esq.

Sarah Bolling is a staff attorney and Skadden Fellow in the Home Defense Program of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society.  Prior to joining the Home Defense Program in 2007, Ms. Bolling graduated from Harvard Law School with honors.  While in law school, she focused on predatory lending and consumer law, and studied bankruptcy law under Elizabeth Warren.  She worked for two semesters in the Predatory Lending clinic of the Hale & Dorr Legal Services Center representing homeowners who had been victimized by predatory lending practices.  Ms. Bolling's prior work experience includes the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice and the Center for Responsible Lending in Durham, NC.

At Legal Aid, Ms. Bolling has advocated for vulnerable homeowners who have predatory mortgage loans and face the threat of foreclosure in state court, federal court, bankruptcy court, and negotiations.  She worked with other housing advocates to draft SB 531, the foreclosure bill that passed the Georgia Legislature in Spring 2008 and was signed into law.  This bill lengthened the foreclosure notice period from 15 to 30 days, mandated that the entity foreclosing establish its ownership of the loan in the county deed records, and required the lender to disclose to the homeowner the person or entity with the authority to negotiate or modify their loan prior to foreclosing.  Ms. Bolling has appeared on local TV news discussing the foreclosure crisis and has been quoted in stories about her clients in The Nation magazine and NPR's All Things Considered.
