Sarah Giglio graduated, cum laude, from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. Prior to law school, Sarah graduated, magna cum laude, from Texas A&M University. While in law school, Sarah served as a Staff Editor and President of the International Law Review. Additionally, she was an active member of the Association for Public Interest Law, from which she received a stipend to do public interest work after her first year of law school. The following year she was elected Vice-President of that organization, where she took a considerable role in fundraising efforts to provide stipends to law students who wished to do public service internships.
Additionally, during law school, Sarah took an active role in the clinics offered at SMU. She began as a student in the Child Advocacy Clinic, and was selected to serve as Chief in that clinic the following semester, giving her even more experience in navigating custody and guardian ad litem situations. She also clerked at a firm specializing in civil litigation for a year and a half. She knew she wanted to practice criminal law after an internship with the Dallas District Attorney’s Office. After graduating from law school, she began her career in criminal defense work, becoming an associate at Rosenthal & Wadas in McKinney, Texas, where she practiced until she moved to Shreveport, where she worked as an associate at Elton B. Richey & Associates. Together with Katherine Gilmer, Sarah then opened Gilmer & Giglio, LLC as partner, where she now works.
In her spare time, she enjoys going to Texas A&M football games. She chose law as her profession because she wants to make a positive impact in people’s lives, and as a result, her clients and their needs will always be her driving force.
