Sarah Gavigan

Senior Staff Attorney — Immigration Legal Program

Sarah was born and raised in the Bay Area. She holds a B.A. in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of California, Berkeley and a J.D. from Golden Gate University School of Law located in San Francisco. Since being admitted to the California Bar in November 2013, Sarah has represented unaccompanied children, as well as families, in their fight against deportation, both as an attorney with ProBAR Children’s Project in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley and now with CARECEN SF. Through CARECEN SF, Sarah is proudly a part of the San Francisco Immigrant Legal Defense Collaborative (SFILDC), which envisions a just and equitable world in which no human is subject to persecution, no immigrant faces deportation without legal representation, and everyone enjoys the basic human right of free and safe movement. Sarah enjoys Sunday night family dinners, Cal football games, and spending time around horses.
