2019 Top Attorneys: Gilmer & Giglio
Criminal Defense • Personal Injury
Criminal defense and personal injury attorneys Katherine E. Gilmer and Sarah R. Giglio strive to positively impact the lives of their clients.
“I consider myself an outspoken advocate for my clients and their best interests,” said Gilmer, who received her law degree from LSU’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center but has always had a fascination with the legal system. “I want to help people who are suffering, whether as a result of an accident or criminal arrest.”
Neither can imagine a career in any other field.
“I love it when clients tell me I’ve had a lasting positive impact on their lives,” said Giglio, a Texas native who graduated from SMU’s Dedman School of Law. “Sometimes I’ll call and check on former clients who, at one time, had drug or alcohol problems, and when they tell me how successful their lives have become, it makes my day.”
Both Gilmer and Giglio believe their compassion sets them apart from other area firms, and they have big plans for the future.
“We want to stand as a shield between our clients and the legal system. Our desire is to identify and solve any underlying issues that caused them to come into contact with it in the first place,” said Giglio. “Clients know they can trust us.”
