Katlin Sanders

Associate Attorney

I’ve always known I wanted to be a Lawyer. With parents who were incarcerated and having a family separated through the legal system, I became interested in the law and strove to become someone who could defend those in their most trying times.

An Indian River County native, I graduated from Sebastian River High School and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Indian River State College. While completing my undergraduate, I devoted my research efforts to highlighting the disparities in legal aid to those incarcerated in our State’s prison system. Concurrently, I worked with the Treasure Coast Food Bank, developing programs to ensure food and supplies reached our thousands of low-income families on the Treasure Coast. With a passion for public service in and out of the Courtroom, I then attended Rutgers and concentrated on nonprofit and criminal law.

At the age of 22, I graduated from Rutgers School of law. I taught legal rights in the Juvenile Detention Centers in New Jersey and offered pro bono legal aid to non-profit start up companies in the Greater Philadelphia region. I also worked with the Federal Prisoner Reentry Program in Camden, New Jersey. My passion is clear, and I have now returned to the Treasure Coast to utilize my passion and unique experiences to best serve my hometown in the areas of Criminal, Family and Dependency law as the Associate Trial Attorney here at The Chesnutt Law Firm.
