Lincoln, Nebraska – Sarah Newell, a trial attorney at Berry Law in Nebraska, has been granted fellowship into The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL), a prestigious professional organization for trial lawyers in the United States and Canada.

Fellows of the ACTL are recognized for their exceptional skill and professionalism in the field of trial law.
Graduating in the top 10 percent of her class, Sarah Newell received awards for her writing skills and extensive knowledge of Constitutional Law.
