Immigration Law


Sarah Burrow has spent the last decade working in the immigration law field. She has an affinity for the most challenging removal and deportation defense cases. A passionate litigator, she spends the majority of her time defending families and individuals, many who have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Sarah is excited by the opportunity to zealously represent foreign nationals in immigration court, opposite the Department of Homeland Security, and has successfully tried hundreds of cases involving nearly all types of relief from removal.

In addition to practicing removal defense, Sarah gladly accepts transactional immigration cases. She has spent years navigating US Citizenship and Immigration Services, having prepared and filed adjustments of status, green card renewals, naturalizations, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) petitions, U visa applications, parole requests, affirmative asylum applications, waiver applications, and more.

While in law school, Sarah worked for a boutique immigration law firm on the city's northside. Upon graduation from law school, she joined that firm as an associate and practiced there for nearly two years. After a brief hiatus, in 2008, she opened her own office and worked as a solo practitioner until her brother joined her in early 2010. Sarah and her brother managed a successful immigration law partnership, serving hundreds of clients, until she made the decision to join Lewis & Kappes, PC in January 2012. Sarah is excited to be part of a larger firm, with a sizeable immigration group. She hopes to warmly welcome clients - old and new - to Lewis & Kappes, PC, and to continue to provide the dependable, high-quality representation for which she is known in Indianapolis' immigrant community.

Sarah and her triplets reside in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. She feels very fortunate to do the work she does, and to have such wonderful children.
