In September 2020, Sara was named a Trailblazer by the National Law Journal, for her co-founding of Kropf Moseley and trial work. 


On May 22, 2020, the firm won a motion to dismiss twelve claims in a Federal civil lawsuit brought by a former employee of a police department against the firm’s client and others where the Plaintiff claimed our client and others conspired against him, caused him physical, reputational and emotional harm.  The former Plaintiff sought damages of over $9 million dollars.


Sara is appointed to the Historical Society of the D.C. Circuit’s board of directors. The organization’s mission is to record, preserve and publicize the life and history of the courts of the District of Columbia Circuit. (April 2020). 


On December 4, 2019, the firm won a two-week civil trial in D.C. Superior Court for a client. The case involved a law firm dissolution, and we represented the defendant. Not only did we prevail for our client on all of the other side's claims, but we also won on a counterclaim against the other side.


On September 10, 2019, Sara Kropf and Andrea Moseley proudly launched Kropf Moseley PLLC. We are excited about our new partnership and look forward to defending our clients together.


In June 2019, the firm won the post-trial dismissal of two convictions for tax fraud for a client in D.C. Superior Court, based on the government's failure to disclose exculpatory information to the defense. It's a case with some history. In October 2017, we  represented this client in the first trial of this matter. That trial ended in a hung jury. The government opted to try him for a second time. So, in March 2018, we tried the case to a jury for a second time. Once again, we helped the client avoid conviction--it was a hung jury (March 2018). The third trial ended with convictions on two of five counts. But, a few months later, those convictions were reversed and the government (finally!) agreed not to try the client again.
