As the first attorney to join Craig at The Greening Law Group, Sarah Wilkinson has now been a part of the team for 6 years. In her position, she is responsible for managing a caseload of clients, reviewing and analyzing discovery, communicating with clients, prosecutors, expert witnesses, and court staff, preparing cases for trial, and writing blogs for the website. She is dedicated to providing superior representation and communication to her clients and helping them through the most difficult time of their lives.
Sarah is from Bryan, Texas (the birthplace of Greening Law), where she graduated in the Top 2% of her class from Bryan High School. She then continued her academic success as a Magna Cum Laude graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Austin College, in Sherman, Texas. Before attending law school, Sarah managed a branch location of a local bank and trained new tellers. She returned to academics in 2007 to attend the J.D. program at the Texas Tech University School of Law. Before joining the team at The Greening Law Group, Sarah heard unemployment cases as a hearing officer at the Texas Workforce Commission in Austin.
After participating in an internship with a district attorney's office while in law school, Sarah quickly realized that criminal law was the only practice area that interested her. Following graduation from law school, her goal was to practice criminal law in any way that she could. Sarah is now licensed to practice law in the state of Texas as well as the Western, Eastern, and Southern Federal Districts of Texas. In 2020, she achieved the first directed verdict in Brazos County for a client on a marijuana case by arguing that the 2019 Hemp Bill should be applied retroactively and was featured in the Houston Chronicle.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys reading, working out, spending time with her niece and nephew, going to pools or lakes, and volunteering with nonprofit organizations. She is the current Board Chair of the local non-profit Arts Council of the Brazos Valley, and also serves as a board member for the Bryan ISD Education Foundation and the BCS Prenatal Clinic. She is also the only local attorney who is an officer for both local bar associations - the Brazos County Bar Association and the Brazos County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Every year, she tries out to be a contestant on Jeopardy!, and has even made it to the final round of auditions before. If Sarah wasn’t an attorney, she would likely have become a professor of history.
Sarah’s favorite drink is sparkling rosé!
