McDonald Sanders, P.C. Welcomes New Associates
Joining the roster of attorneys at McDonald Sanders, P.C. are new associates Tamara Pullin, Sarah Kline Carmichael, and Ty Taylor. “This is a strong group. Each of these three lawyers brings talent, unique perspectives, and energy; a meaningful combination,” said Rick Sorenson, President of McDonald Sanders. “We look forward to their growth and contributions as part of our firm and our continuing commitment to providing excellent legal services for each of our clients.”
Pullin is a commercial litigator, with six years of experience as in-house counsel at a privately held financial institution in Oklahoma City and more than 10 years of commercial litigation practice in both Texas and Oklahoma with international firms. Pullin has extensive experience with matters pertaining to banking regulatory compliance, especially with respect to fair lending and UDAPP compliance, as well as laws and regulations pertaining to deposits, lending, and loss mitigation.
She is poised to assist banking clients in assessing and mitigating compliance risk as well as offering guidance through the regulatory exam process. Pullin is also knowledgeable in employment law and discrimination matters.
A native Texan, Pullin is new to Fort Worth, moving here when her husband, Daniel, became Dean of TCU’s Neeley School of Business. She stays busy as a Tanglewood mom to her elementary-aged son, a board member of the PTA at McLean Sixth Grade Center, where her elder son attends, and a member of a USTA tennis team at Colonial Country Club.
Carmichael has focused her practice on commercial litigation, employment law, and insurance defence matters, as well as business transactions and corporate organisation. She supports several other attorneys with their cases and matters, while also working on developing her own practice areas. Carmichael loves attacking problems and finding solutions for her clients. She enjoys researching, both to the benefit of her clients and her fellow attorneys, but also because she likes learning something new every day.
Before heading west to Lubbock for law school at Texas Tech University, Carmichael came to Fort Worth to attend Texas Christian University for bachelor’s degrees in both English and political science. She originally hails from Paradise, Texas. Now back in the area and living downtown, Sarah and her husband take full advantage of the wonders of Fort Worth. Of course, as a TCU and Texas Tech grad, Carmichael keeps up with college football, but also loves to read, camp, and hike.
Taylor works primarily on matters involving business transactions, energy and utilities, and real estate, as well as providing support to several attorneys on a wide variety of practice areas. Highly focused and attentive to the issues, Taylor takes pride in his attention to detail and creative approach to achieving our clients’ goals.
Taylor is originally from Glen Rose, Texas. After walking on to the football team at Texas Tech University his freshman year, Taylor transferred to the University of Pennsylvania where he played wide receiver and was a four-year letterman for the Penn Quakers. He returned to Lubbock, earning his law degree from Texas Tech. Taylor now lives in south Fort Worth, where he enjoys being a part of the developing local community.
Taylor values spending quality time with his friends and family, is a huge sports fan, and likes to hunt and fish. He stays active by playing golf and regularly participating in basketball and softball leagues, usually to the tune of his favourite Texas Country and Americana music.
